Suspect describes actions as "stupid and dumb"



The young man, accused of sending a letter depicting a lynching to a Stoughton Family, appears to be having regrets.  Police say 21-year-old Matthew Cimaroli of DeForest  is now calling it "stupid and dumb".  A criminal complaint states Cimaroli originally denied sending the letter, until police said they found his D-N-A on the sealed envelope.  The letter depicted the lynching of two young black men in a historical photo.  The letter included the message, "Your Days are Numbered".  Police say Cimaroli had a dispute with an 18-year-old in the household and wanted to scare him.  He was arrested Sunday on suspicious of felony threats to injure, with a hate crime enhancer.
