An anonymous letter mailed to a private detective working with the family of a missing woman claims that a New Jersey police officer could be behind that woman's disappearance in 2009.

Private Detective Eileen Law received the letter by mail in late November. In it, the writer claims to have been paid to get rid of the Pontiac Grand Prix belonging to missing 29-year-old Chester County resident, Toni Sharpless, according to the Philadelphia Daily News.

Sharpless was last seen by her friend Crystal Johns just after 5 a.m. on August 23, 2009. Johns says she and Sharpless left a party at former Sixer Willie Green's home and a short time later, Sharpless kicked her out of her Pontiac, and was never seen again.

But it's that car that could prove to be the piece of evidence that connects Sharpless' disappearance to a murder, apparently by a Camden police officer, according to the anonymous letter.

The letter obtained by the Daily News, says that the writer was contacted in late 2009 by a friend in Camden. The writer claims the friend asked him to move a car from Camden County to Boston for $5,000 and the vehicle's plates.

It goes on to claim that the writer's friend had a friend, a Camden cop, who had gotten into a fight with a girl, she died, and he needed to get the car out of New Jersey, according to the Daily News.

And although, Private Detective Law says there are holes in the letter, she does tell the paper that the letter did contain the correct VIN from Sharpless' car.
