Written by: The Shreveport Times

A Winnsboro woman who was attacked and set on fire Sunday has sustained burns over 60 percent of her body, her family said in an afternoon press conference.
Sharmeka Moffitt, 20, remains in critical condition at LSU Medical Center burn center in Shreveport and is expected to undergo surgery Tuesday.

Her mother Edna Moffitt and family members spoke to reporters Monday afternoon at the medical center. Moffitt said her daughter could be hospitalized for a month or longer.

Moffitt said the family was shocked by the attack.

“I have never known anything like this to happen in Winnsboro,” Moffitt said.

According to police, Sharmeka Moffitt was on the walking trail in Civitan Park at about 8 p.m. Sunday when she was attacked by three men wearing white hoodies.

Her vehicle was painted with a racial slur and the letters “KKK,” her family said. The young woman called 911 to report the attack, but was unable to identify her attackers.

Several law enforcement agencies are involved in the investigation
