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.
