Both letters had a “faith-based bent” to them, said David Heitstuman, centre executive director, and were more specific in nature than past hate mail the centre had received.

Heitstuman called the Sacramento Police Department, who took the letters as evidence and began investigating the situation as a possible hate crime. The letters included a similar language and tone, said Officer Linda Matthew, police spokeswoman.
