A member of a local Ku Klux Klan chapter probably wrote an anti-black hate letter to a Hagerstown organization in January, the chapter leader said Wednesday.
Gordon Young, the imperial wizard of the World Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, said Wednesday he's "70 percent sure" a chapter member sent a hate letter to the Martin Luther King Community Center in Hagerstown.
Brothers United Who Dare to Care, a black community group, has its office at the center.
The end of the letter says, "KKK will again cleanse this town of its filth."
For the last several months, Hagerstown Police and the FBI have been investigating who sent several hate-filled letters, including that one, to city residents and organizations.
