Police probe 'death tapes' in Airmont mailboxesPosted: Updated:
Police are probing "death tapes" getting left in mailboxes around Airmont.
According to police, at least four homes received the cassette tapes, but they believe more recipients are in the neighborhood. The tapes have been delivered in plain envelopes near Marjorie Drive and Church Road. The cassettes have a label reading "flowering of death." Investigators say a male narrates a message about death, which is identical on the four tapes.
Police say the message does not appear to be threatening. The four recipients are all Roman Catholic.
Sebastian Sorice, who received a tape Saturday, says he believes the tape targets his faith because of certain references.
Ramapo police have turned the evidence over to the local clergy for analysis. Investigators are also seeking the public's help.
