The case of Megan Lynn Touma, the Army dental specialist stationed at Fort Bragg who was found dead in a North Carolina motel bathtub on June 21st, is taking a turn for the creepy after a letter was sent to the local Fayetteville Observer by someone claiming to be Megan's killer. That's not all: the anonymous scribe also said he was modeling himself after the notorious killer Zodiac and even used the Zodiac's target symbol in his sign-off. Fayetteville Police Chief Tom Bergamine told CNN, "I do not believe there is a serial killer on the loose in Fayetteville." However, police do think that the letter was planted to confuse and misdirect the investigation for Touma's killer. They are currently investigating another solider who is studying psychological operations at Fort Bragg.

Until recently, Touma and the unnamed soldier had been stationed in Bamberg, Germany, and according to the Fayetteville Observer, a friend in Germany says that Touma was recently engaged, but that the friend had never known the fiance's name. Below is the letter published in the Observer, taking responsibility for Touma's killing. As the reader of too many true crime books, I agree with the Fayetteville police: I don't think it's the work of a serial killer, but it's certainly hinky.

While I'm sure that Fayetteville law enforcement isn't going to be the model for the next spin-off of CSI (CSI: Fayetteville) I'm not sure that you can measure police incompetence simply because you (as a creepy serial killer wannabe) are able to watch the crime scene. I mean, are they supposed to be arresting people standing there on the street for no reason at all.

And apparently hinky means nervous or suspicious; acting suspiciously. Who knew that was a real word?
