Lawmen shaken by burning of woman in Winnsboro park

WINNSBORO — Franklin Parish’s top two cops said even they were shaken by the attack and burning of 20-year-old Sharmeka Moffitt in normally serene Civitan Park here Sunday night.

Moffitt is in critical condition this afternoon at LSU Health Sciences Center in Shreveport following the attack by three unidentified men at 8 p.m.

When asked about his first reaction, Winnsboro Police Chief Lester Thomas said, “Devastated.”

Franklin Parish Sheriff Kevin Cobb said called it “a horrific event.”

“We will follow the facts and seek justice,” Cobb vowed.

Though the attackers apparently wrote the letters “KKK” on Moffitt’s vehicle, police said she was unable to determine whether the men were black or white.
