The Australian state police in Victoria are confused. Within two months, dozens of women approached them with a complaint. 65 women complained about receiving cryptic letters, some in multiples. Inside the envelope was a used condom and a message full of threats and insults. The total number of messages exceeded one hundred, writes the New York Post.

Law enforcement officers first decided to establish a connection between the recipients. It turned out that in the late 1990s, they all studied at the same school – Kilbreda College Mentone Catholic Secondary School, located near Melbourne.

Trying to follow the trail of the criminal, the police suggested that the attacker apparently took the addresses of the women listed in the 1999 student book, writes The Guardian.

“It’s possible that this address book was found by someone unrelated to the school and thought it was going to be a big joke, but eventually he got serious,” Victoria Police Sgt Major Grant Lewis said.

The investigation equally considers a person who has nothing to do with the school as a criminal, as well as someone who studied in it.

Lewis noted that some of the letters were handwritten, while others were typed. The content of all the messages was roughly the same, the text suggesting “contained thoughts and threats”, including sexual ones.

The sergeant also said investigators were conducting DNA and handwriting analysis to find out who was behind the attack, which police say is being treated as a “targeted attack.”

The first letter was received on March 20 to an Australian woman named Bree. The woman’s mother opened the message first and was horrified.

– I didn’t sleep all night after that. The next day I heard about another girl who received a similar letter, and then another, Brie told reporters.

According to the woman, the letter contained a message of a sexual nature. After that, Bree created a social media group, where she called on women who received similar letters to join.

University principal Nicole Mangelsdorf said the messages were not related to any data breach at the school.

By the way, the day after the police announced the investigation, they found a box of 88 unopened condoms in a wetland near Peterson Drive in Lynbrook. The investigation believes that the finding may be directly related to the offender.
