Woman set on fire in possible racist attack in Louisiana

New Orleans, October 23 - A 20-year-old woman is in critical condition after she was reportedly set on fire Monday by three men who wrote the initials KKK, an apparent reference to the white supremacist group, and racial slurs on her car in northeastern Louisiana. Sharmeka Moffitt managed to call police after she was attacked while exercising alone in Civitan Park in Winnsboro, Louisiana. In an emergency call to 911, she told police she was set on fire by men wearing "white hoodies". Moffitt was found with burns on 60% of her body, police said. Franklin Parish Sheriff Kevin Cobb called the attack a horrific event" and said authorities would "follow the facts and seek justice". The FBI is investigating the attack as a possible hate crime. Moffitt is being treated in the LSU Medical Center in Shreveport, Lousiana. No arrests have been made.
