An investigation was launched after two unsolicited packages were received by an elementary school that were addressed to underage girls. According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the resulting probe discovered that similar packages were sent to more than 50 other underage girls in at least three states, each with instructions to email the sender.
The investigation was triggered after two unsolicited packages were sent to female students at an Alabama elementary school in Phenix City. Each parcel, a New Jersey Visitors package, was addressed to the girls by name.
Food was found in the packages along with a letter signed “Atur Bhuck of Sante Fe, NM,” said authorities.
“Each order included the name of the girl and the address of the elementary school she attends, said the Covington County District Attorney’s Office, according to a report by Fox News.
“The same IP address has also appeared on websites discussing girls’ underwear and types of music to listen to when he visits his pen pal in Phenix City,” the district attorney’s office added.
The person who sent the packages claims he is 14 years old and is mentally disabled. The sender also states that they have been bullied and asked the girls’ to respond to his packages using two email addresses – [email protected] or [email protected]
According to the district attorney’s office, the IP address of the Gmail account seems to originate from Houston.
Similar packages were sent to other underage girls in Alabama, as well as girls in South Carolina and Virginia.
