No charges after cryptic email sent to National Compassion Fund in Alexandria

No charges were filed after the National Compassion Fund received a cryptic email in June.

The nonprofit collected millions for the victims mass shootings, including the May incidents in Buffalo, New York and Uvalde, Texas, but the slow rollout of the funds has been controversial.

The charity is run by the National Center for Victims of Crime and works with the National Sheriff’s Association, the latter of which alerted Alexandria Police that the fund received a threatening email.

On June 10, the Fund announced in a podcast that there would be a delay in the dispersal of funds to the victims of the Buffalo shooting, according to a search warrant affidavit.

The announcement led to a large number of email responses, and police were notified of the following email: “Perhaps give these people their donations due to them soon, unless you’d like a similar tragedy to occur within your walls…”

Police determined that the alleged writer of the email lives in the Virginia Beach or Chesapeake areas. The suspect was not arrested.
