Oshawa, Ontario Canada (NBC NEWS) — A hate-filled letter has shocked and outraged a Canadian family.
The letter targets a 13-year-old boy with autism.
Thirteen-year-old Max has a severe form of autism.
When he's not bouncing around his own yard, Max spends a lot of time at his grandmother's.
On Friday, she received an anonymous hateful letter in her mail and immediately called police and told max's mother.
The letter complained about Max playing in the yard and so much more and also read, "Personally, you should take whatever non-retarded body parts he possesses and donate it to science. You have a retarded kid, deal with it properly."
Now, Max's mother is asking, what right do you have to do this to hard-working people?
The letter ends with, "do the right thing and move or euthanize him."
Max does not know about the letter.
Police are now seeking the advice of the Crown's office.
For this family, nothing will take away the sting of these words.
A reporter asked Max's mother, "What do you want to say to the person who wrote this letter?"
She replied, "He deserves everything every other normal child can have. Nobody needs to be treated like this. You're one sick individual, that's all I can say."
