FOX23 is learning more about a threatening letter sent to a Cherokee County judge.
The letter contained a powdery substance later determined to be talcum powder.
Deputies tell FOX23’s Dontaye Carter, the letter also talked about killing the judge like the recent murder of a District Attorney in Texas.
Investigators are trying to retrieve finger prints from the letter to track down whoever sent it to the courthouse. The letter was sent to a lab in Edmond Wednesday.
"This is very unusual for us to have any threats to the courthouse especially two in less than a week," said Cherokee County Undersheriff Jason Chennault.
The courthouse received a bomb threat last Wednesday. Chennault says the two threats have them on high alert.
"We do have more of a presence in the courthouse now," said Chennault.
Tuesday, Investigators say a letter was sent to a judge referencing the murder of Kaufman County District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife, Cynthia.
Chennault says the judge wasn't frightened by it. However, with two threats in less than a week they're not taking any chances.
"We're going to do what we can to get this person charged and in jail," he said.
Deputies are going through a list of people who might've had a grudge against that judge. They are questioning suspects hoping new leads will lead to an arrest.
