Neither of the letters made it to their intended recipients. Both were stopped at a screening center. 

A source tells CNN the letters read in part: 

"To see a wrong and not expose it, is to become a silent partner to its continuance."

They were signed:

"I am KC and I approve this message."

KEEP READING: A Mississippi judge received a similar letter that is also being tested
