Police Seek Writer of Obscene Notes

Police are asking for help from anyone with information about inappropriate and threatening letters sent to a teacher at Weston Middle School. The teacher recently went public about the incidents to encourage others to come forward. Soon after the news aired on Channel 12, a Wilton businessman came forward with a similar case.

Letters and postcards written to the teacher in March were obscene, suggestive and very disturbing, according to police Detective Carl Filsinger. The teacher received a typed letter at school and at her home on the same day. When the school began looking into the matter and talking to staff, she received a handwritten postcard at her home and school that was again "obscene, suggestive and threatening in nature," said Filsinger. The detective added that whoever wrote the note said he or she was stalking the individual.

The police said they have no suspects and are asking for help identifying the person. "The teacher is very beside herself and very concerned," Filsinger said.

There is "definitely a connection" between the cases in Wilton and Weston, he said. Both postcards have similar handwriting and were written on Sierra Club postcards.

The police department has not received any additional calls from anyone complaining of similar instances.

"We can't say if it's a student or someone she's around every day," Filsinger said. "Is it a prank? I don't know. Nobody's talking."
