A feces and blood smeared letter demanded an apology from the mother of a Brooklyn man jailed for the rape and murder of a Queens jogger, Karina Vetrano.

Veta Lewis, whose son Chanel was arrested Feb. 4 in the murder of 30-year-old Vetrano, said she found the California post-marked letter waiting Wednesday at her Brooklyn home.

“It said for her to apologize for what her son did and return all the money back she received from GoFundMe,” said the Rev. Kevin McCall, the family’s spokesman.
Veta Lewis immediately called police to file a report and an investigation was opened, said McCall.
The NYPD confirmed the Lewis family filed an aggravated harassment complaint, and said the probe was continuing.
A “reddish-brown substance” was found on the paper, according to police sources. But cops said the complaint filed with police made no mention of the fund-raising website.
“We want the NYPD to look in to this matter just like they would any other case,” said McCall.

The family’s attempt to raise money via GoFundMe was shut down earlier this month because the effort violated the company’s policy — no fund-raising allowed for alleged criminals or defense funds.
Donors who kicked in $800 via GoFundMe all received their money back. A second crowdfunding effort using Fundly was suspended after a large number of complaints, according to the web site.
