In the letter, Stokes names Sgt. Darryl Eugene Coulter as the officer who approached him. Apparently, Coulter did not tell Stokes the name of the officer he wanted killed.
Coulter is one of two sergeants who was arrested during last month's investigation of the Spring Lake Police Department. The other is Sgt. Alphonzo Devonne Whittington. Both men are facing a number of felony and misdemeanor charges.
The newspaper also stated that in his letter, Stokes says Coulter was targeting the officer who was responsible for his arrest.
The SBI and prison officials are investigation the allegation. Since the shake up at the Spring Lake department, its police chief resigned.
Gregg Jarvies is serving as the interim chief until at least September. He formerly served as the Chapel Hill police chief.
