A disturbing letter was sent to Hobgood Elementary School, which has been the center of controversy after several students were arrested following a bullying incident.

The letter was sent to the school’s principal.

A video surfaced of a child being bullied by multiple students, who were later handcuffed after news of the incident spread.

The video gained traction, and the Murfreesboro Police Department was criticized for handcuffing the children.

In a police report, the principal described the letter, which came from New Jersey, as "disturbing," and said it referenced the arrests. 

The message was unclear. It was an ongoing investigation.
