The Cameron County Echo newspaper received a letter sometime Monday that claims to be from fugitive Thomas Smith.
According to the Endeavor Media Facebook page, authorities are not sure if the letter is actually from Smith and are examining video footage taken by Sheetz security cameras that may have captured the delivery of the letter.
The letter says Smith plans to turn himself in.
Police have not released any further information because of the ongoing investigation.
Smith is accused of kidnapping a woman at gunpoint on August 8. She was able to get away.
