FBI investigates death threats against Dog Chapman, family

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The Federal Bureau of Investigation is investigating a series of violent and disturbing death threats against Duane ‘Dog' Chapman and his family, according to sources close to the Chapman family. The threats were emailed to the Chapmans' over a four day period, and include murder, rape and kidnapping.

According to RadarOnline.com, Chapman received the following email on April 30: "I'm going to murder you. I'm going to come to Hawaii and murder you and your family in cold blood. You are next on my list and are the bane of society. I will deliver you to God."

Another email, this one dated May 2: "I'm going to murder you and your family. I'm going to slaughter your family … I want to see you cry, like you did everyday in prison. I want you to watch as your family gets massacred right in front of you."

The next day, the Chapmans received this email: "Your children looked nice today. As previously stated, I have a rather nasty vendatta against you and your family."

The emails contain some graphic and disturbing content, much of which is directed at Chapman's daughters and other family members.

Earlier this week, the Los Angeles FBI field office referred the case to the Honolulu FBI field office, according to Special Agent Tom Simon. However, the Honolulu FBI can neither confirm nor deny the existence of any FBI investigation unless or until any charges are filed.

The following is a statement from the Chapman family.

The Chapmans are taking these threats seriously and are very concerned about the safety of their family.  Duane Chapman said that when the person responsible is found, he will prosecute to the full extent of the law for the threats made against his family.

A referral of the case has been made to the FBI in Honolulu.
