More KKK fliers found at different location in Loudoun County
ROUND HILL, Va. (ABC7) —
More KKK propaganda has been found in Loudoun County, this time in a different town.
The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office said Sunday that they were notified of KKK recruitment fliers in two separate places in Round Hill.
The sheriff’s office said residents notified them Saturday of KKK propaganda on the running trail near Smith Creek Circle and Scotland Heights Road in Round Hill shortly after 11:54 a.m. and near a mailbox in the 35000 block of Round Knoll Court at 3:50 p.m.
KKK fliers were also found in the 700 block of Aurora Court NE in Leesburg on Friday night.
The sheriff’s office said its investigators are working with the Leesburg and Purcellville police departments, as well as with the FBI, to determine the origin of the fliers. The households who received the fliers are not believed to have been specifically targeted.
In the case of the Leesburg KKK fliers, police said they believe they were posted because of the close proximity to Martin Luther King Jr. Day, which is on Monday. Residents in that neighborhood told ABC7’s Amy Aubert that there are discussions about coming together and sending a message of unity in response to the propaganda.
Anyone with any information regarding these cases are asked to contact the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office at 703-777-1021.
