FBI investigators say parents in at least four states need to be on high alert because of a man claiming to be from New Mexico, who is sending little girls ‘creepy’ packages.
“It’s terrifying. I don’t want her to be out of my sight right now,” said Jena Willingham of Phenix City, Alabama.
Willingham’s young daughter received a package in the mail from the man in question, as did at least one other girl in their small Alabama town.
“[She] came in there and she cried and my husband talked to her about it and was like we’re not going to let anything happen to you. You’re safe with us and the police are going to take care of this now,” said Willingham.
At first, the package’s contents just seem bizarre. Willingham said it included a half-eaten doughnut, $3, and a church bulletin.
However, the package gets downright creepy when you read the handwritten letter enclosed.
The letter writer claims to be Artur Bhuck, a 14-year-old living in Roswell, New Mexico. He tells Willingham’s young daughter, he’s mentally disabled, a bullying victim and has family in Hobbs.
In the letters, Bhuck includes one of two e-mail addresses and asks the young girls to email him ‘as soon as possible.’
The email addresses are ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’ or ‘email@example.com.’
FBI investigators say, they traced those email addresses to an inappropriate website where the user talks about girls underwear and talks about what music to listen to when visiting pen pals.
“We know this is a bad man,” said Willingham.
In other letters written by Bhuck, he claims to be from Santa Fe, New Mexico.
No law enforcement agency in Santa Fe or Roswell are involved in the FBI’s investigation.
The FBI issued a ‘Southeast Predator Alert’ about this man and are warning parents to be on high alert.
The FBI says at similar packages were received in three other states, South Carolina, Virginia and New Jersey.
No package like this has been received in New Mexico, but if you receive one, call police immediately.
