Man Who Wrote Racial, Threatening Letter Exposed
CHARLOTTE, NC - Angry residents at an East Charlotte apartment complex now know who's behind threatening, racial, letters posted on their doors.
Someone posted two letters at the Advenir at Casa Bella Apartments off Farm Pond Lane this week. The letters claim a new state law says undocumented immigrants must move out, but there's no such law.
"He should pay for what he did. It was not something to let go. It's serious to me," said Cynthia Delgado, an East Charlotte resident.
An attorney for the management company says the man responsible is Timothy Lynch. His face is now plastered all over the complex along with an apology letter to residents.
"It's a good thing that they posted his picture because now we know who to look out for," said Tierra Morris, an East Charlotte resident.
Police say the letters are not a crime, but the community managers want him to be charged with trespassing and forging signatures of their employees.
"Those are all crimes and I don't know how CMPD is looking at it, but they definitely need to look further into it," said Morris.
WCCB Charlotte went to Lynch's home Friday to ask why he posted what residents call racially charged and hateful letters. He didn't answer.
According to the apartment complex attorneys, Lynch admitted to police that he wrote and posted the letters. He said he did it to cause harm.
Management and residents felt that harm and are worried he could strike again.
"Who knows what else he could be doing," said Morris.
Police have banned Lynch from the apartment complex property, but management says that is not enough. They plan to file a civil lawsuit against him.
