A suspicious package filled with white powder was sent to a Brockton teenager's home. The teenager reported that her mother found the package, which led to a massive response by Brockton police, fire and state marshals, hazardous materials team, and the FBI.
The package contained the white powder, and a picture of her 19 year old girlfriend from Brockton, with her mother and her uncle. On the picture, the faces were crossed off with a circle and an X, and on the back there was handwriting that said "watch out for me."
The teen told reporters that she believes that the package was dropped off and not mailed because there was no stamp on it. The state fire marshal reported that preliminary testing showed no harmful material in the package but that it had been sent to the state lab for further testing. An FBI spokesman said the final test results will arrive shortly.
