Texas officials are seeking a woman's ex-boyfriend, after the mail brought her a severed finger and the message, "This is my last chance to touch you."

Corpus Christi police say they're not sure which finger it was or how it was cut off. But they say it "wasn't mangled" and was apparently washed before it was mailed Friday.

The woman had filed for an emergency protective order from the man last week.

Police say the man faces misdemeanor charges from a previous report of family violence this month. The threatening letter could bring more charges.
