Police seeking public’s help with investigation

By Bonnie Culverhouse

Minden Police are actively seeking tips in an ongoing investigation, and it may come to any local business number in the form of an envelope like the one shown here.

“If anyone gets one of these letters with the address written in pencil like this, please don’t open it,” said Minden Police Chief Jared McIver. “There is nothing inside that is of danger to the recipient, but if we can get it before they open it, we may be able to pull DNA off of it where the sender licked it to close the envelope.”

The chief said they are aware of three letters that have been received today (Monday, July 17).

“They either have a Monroe zip code or a Bossier zip code,” he said. “No return address and written in pencil. Please don’t open it and contact Minden Police Department.”

McIver said the FBI and U.S. Postal Service have been contacted, and Webster Parish Sheriff’s Office is also working with these agencies.
