DeForest man arrested for allegedly sending racist hate letter

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A DeForest man has been arrested for allegedly sending a racist hate letter to a black family in Stoughton.

21-year-old Matthew Cimaroli told police he sent the letter to 18-year-old Javon Hale because the teenager stole money in a drug sale.

Hale’s parents called police when they saw the letter their son had received. It apparently depicted him as the victim of a lynching.

Cimaroli had been identified as a suspect shortly after the initial report, but police say they waited for forensic evidence to be processed before taking him into custody.
