Encrypted unwanted packages sent to two girls at a primary school in Alabama have called for a probe to find out who has behind more than 50 similar packages ordered for minors in at least three other states, the FBI said.
Alabama school officials warned parents about the packages Sunday after the two Phenix City girls received the packages during the past week, Covington County District Attorney's Office said. The packages contained food and a letter signed "Atur Bhuck in Santa Fe, NM.", Said the authorities.
"Every order included the girl's name and address to the elementary school she attended," said the district law firm in a Facebook post. "The same IP address has also appeared on websites that discuss girls' underwear and types of music to listen to when visiting their pencil favorite in Phenix City."
The person claimed that he was 14 years old, mentally disabled and had been bullied. WBTV reported the person asked the girls to respond to the packages at two email addresses – firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
The Gmail account addresses appeared to originate in Houston according to the District Law Firm. Similar packages were ordered for underage girls in Alabama, South Carolina and Virginia, said the FBI.
