Sharmeka Moffitt was on a walking trail in a city park when she was attacked and set on fire by 3 men. Authorities are reporting this as a HATE crime.
I can’t even believe the hate people have for one another. A black woman, 20, was ‘set on fire by three men wearing white hoodies saying racial scurs and police find KKK scrawled on her car ‘
According to DailyMail :
Louisiana State Police spokeswoman Lt. Julie Lewis says Sharmeka Moffitt was found with burns on 60 per cent of her body when police responded to her 911 call on Sunday night.
Moffitt was taken to LSU Medical Center in Shreveport, where she remained in critical condition on Monday afternoon.
Though the attackers apparently wrote the letters ‘KKK’ on Moffitt’s vehicle, police said she was unable to determine whether the men were black or white.
Local law enforcement said they were shocked at the attack at the otherwise serene park.
Winnsboro Police Chief Lester Thomas said he was ‘devastated’ by the incident.
Franklin Parish Sheriff Kevin Cobb called it ‘a horrific event.’
‘We will follow the facts and seek justice,’ he said.
The victim’s family set up a Facebook page, Prayers for Sharmeka Moffitt and soliciting prayers for the 20-year-old.
