A St. James woman’s GoFundMe page, which is collecting money to fund a reward for the identification of the person who sent racist and homophobic letters to her family – including threats to stalk and kill their child – is inching closer to the $5,000 goal.

Patty Kayke’s post #HateWillNotWin details threats that include derogatory names, threats to destroy their home, and shoot and kill the married lesbian couple.

Kayke says the St. Peter Police Department and investigators office have been extremely supportive, as have the residents of St. Peter and neighboring communities.  Both letters have been analyzed by the state crime lab, but she says no fingerprints or DNA were found.

Recently, another lesbian couple in St. Peter received what Kayke says are disturbingly similar letters, including threats to find and kill their child.
