Saskatoon police are questioning the legitimacy of a video showing a woman claiming responsibility for the deliveries of several suspicious packages across the city.

“Investigators are aware of it,” police spokesperson Kelsie Fraser said. “At this time, they don’t think there’s any legitimacy to it, but, again, that will be part of the investigation.”

The video was sent to several individuals and select media Sunday, and was accompanied by a handful of emails claiming Alexa Emerson’s innocence.

Emerson, who is also known as Amanda Totchek, turned herself in to police Monday morning. The 31-year-old was wanted on a Canada-wide warrant in connection with a number of recent suspicious package deliveries in Saskatoon.

The emails’ sender, claiming to be the woman in the video, writes she and another woman sent packages and letters — at least some of which contained talcum powder and baking soda — around Saskatoon.

“She did it to get back at Alexa Emerson,” one email reads.

The sender alleges Saskatoon police are ignoring her confession and threatens to deliver more packages.

“Why don’t they look into this? I’m giving a confession and details the police should look into. I’m so sorry Alexa, please forgive me,” the email states.

“I will send this out and letters everyday until you find me and [name redacted], I will have hazmat out everyday for months to show you its [sic] my doing.”

Both the email and supposed video confession detail how the woman and an accomplice allegedly orchestrated the packages' deliveries.

“We made those packages together, with the cookies and rockets and tissue paper. [Name redacted] put together the cards. She said, ‘People will think the baking soda is anthrax,’” the woman claims in the video.

CTV has received three emails so far from the sender.

We are choosing to remove all names, excluding Emerson’s, from this story. We’ve yet to substantiate the email sender’s identity or the identity of the woman in the video. The name used to sign off on the emails and the name of the other woman mentioned in the emails and video are both listed under a no-contact order as part of Emerson’s most recent bail conditions.

The warrant for Emerson was issued Friday after several packages containing white powder were sent in March and April to local businesses, a cancer centre and a school in Saskatoon. Police said she was wanted in relation to six of eight recent suspicious package deliveries, but noted officers were still investigating the two latest incidents.

The powder was found to be not dangerous in all the cases, but police were still warning the public Monday to treat any suspicious package seriously. Investigators believe more packages are out there and not yet discovered, according to the police spokesperson.

Emerson, who had been out on bail since January, is also facing charges of mischief, public mischief and uttering threats to cause bodily harm in connection with the delivery of suspicious packages in late fall.

Five envelopes were dropped off Nov. 29 at five locations in Saskatoon. More than $80,200 was spent on emergency response.

Three people were arrested after the incidents, but two were later released without charges. Police allege Emerson hired the pair to deliver the packages and that the two were unaware of the contents.

Emerson was in police custody at the time the five packages were delivered. She had turned herself in to police that morning in connection with charges related to an October incident, her lawyer at the time, Brian Pfefferle, said shortly after the deliveries.

In the October incident, according to a court document, Emerson is accused of sending videos, depicting herself being bound, assaulted and threatened, to a number of people. The videos were intended to mislead a police officer into suspecting a man of committing a crime he did not commit, the police allege.

A trial on the 15 charges she’s facing in connection with the Nov. 29 incidents and on charges of criminal harassment, public mischief and providing false information in relation to the October incident is scheduled to begin in May.

She’s pleaded not guilty to all charges. None of the allegations against her have been proven in court.

Pfefferle, whose office recently received a suspicious package, said Monday he would be stepping down as Emerson’s lawyer.
