STOUGHTON - Police in Stoughton are investigating a threatening letter that was sent to a black teenager, with a photo that depicted him as the victim of a lynching.
The letter had a Madison postmark but no return address. The family told the newspaper it contained a photo showing two men hanging from a tree, with a mob watching. A picture of the 18-year-old was superimposed onto one of the men.
Police say in a statement that they took the letter and its contents to the state crime lab for processing, and the FBI and U.S. Postal Service have been contacted. Police say ``this type of behavior will not be tolerated'' and those responsible will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
