A 20 year old black woman in Louisiana suffered burns over 90% of her body when 3 men in white hoodies set her on fire and spray painted “KKK” on her car. An investigation is underway to determine whether or not this crime was racially motivated, much to the confusion of friends and family.
Sharmeka Moffitt of Winnsboro, Louisiana was approached by the 3 men when she was on a walking trail at Civitan Park in Franklin Parish on Sunday. Moffitt was able to call 911 for assistance and is listed in critical condition¬†at the LSU-Shreveport hospital.
The FBI is working in conjunction with ¬†the Louisiana State Police, the state Fire Marshal‚Äôs Office,¬†the¬†Winnsboro Police Department and Franklin Parish sheriff’s office, and thus far, the authorities have declined to classify the incident as a hate crime.
A Facebook page has been created for Moffitt, decrying the fact that this crime has not received national media coverage.
