According to Stephen Emmett with the Atlanta FBI office, investigators suspect Friday's letter was related to two other letters received Thursday and Friday at the Herald Gazette newspaper in Barnesville.

There is no initial indication as to whether or not Monday's incident is related to the others.

No injuries have been reported.
