(Scroll down for video) A woman set herself on fire and then blamed members of the kkk, according to police.

Detectives at the Louisiana State Police, said that DNA tests on a bottle of charcoal lighter fluid showed the woman’s wounds were self-inflicted.

The woman, Sharmeka Moffitt, planned an elaborate scheme to stir up community tensions, according to police. They also found her fingerprints on a cigarette lighter.

State Police said that she wrote the letters "KKK" on her car. Police do not know her motive and do not know why she did it to herself. As far as charges go, police said that after the end of their investigation, they will deliver the findings to the district attorney's office. The D.A. will determine whether or not Moffitt will face charges.

Throughout the investigation, The Franklin Parish Sheriff urged the community to have compassion.

"We should still come together as a community, as we were when we found out about the attack," Sheriff Kevin Cobb said.

"Our community came together to support from all sides and we must continue to do so."

Moffitt's family issued a statement saying: "Our family is devastated to learn the circumstances of our daughter's injuries. Though this was not the expected resolution, it is still a resolution."

The family went on to thank everyone for their sincere support and prayers.
