WOMAN CHARGED WITH SENDING DEATH THREATS TO CHRIS CORNELL

2/11/2014

A Seattle woman has been charged for allegedly tweeting death threats to Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell. According to local Seattle TV station KIRO-7, the woman reportedly sent over 100 messages to Cornell from a total of nine different Twitter accounts. Some of the threats also alluded to raping Cornell's 13-year-old daughter Lily.

 

  • Prosecutors say those tweets constituted cyber-stalking and they filed criminal charges against the woman last week.
  • Sadly this is not the first time Cornell and his family have been targeted in this fashion. Back in 2006, Cornell and his wife Vicky received threats in which a man described how he planned to kill Vicky and their two children.
  • The private investigators Cornell hired to look into who was sending the letters said the stalker was British. The singer took the threats seriously enough to install a $250,000 security system in the family home.
  • Then in 2007, Cornell sought a restraining order against an armed man who had reportedly been threatening to harm him and his family -- allegedly at the bidding of Cornell's ex-wife, Susan Silver, also the former manager of Soundgarden.
