CHAMPLIN, MN (KTRK) -- A 38-year-old woman is accused of sending anonymous threats to a family that said she wanted to taste and lick their children.
The Champlin city attorney is now considering charges of gross misdemeanor terroristic threats and stalking against Carrie Pernula, WCCO-TV reports.
Police say Pernula sent the first threat late last month. It was made to look like an anonymously-sent letter that read, "The children look delicious. May I have a taste?"
The family, who has two elementary school aged children, reported the letter to police.
Days later, they began getting magazine subscriptions delivered to their home.
"Instead of a name on the address label it said things like 'tasty children' along those lines," Champlin Deputy Police Chief Ty Schmidt told WCCO-TV.
Investigators were able to trace those magazines back to Pernula who admitted to sending them.
"She was angry because the kids were leaving things in her yard and I think being a little noisy, being kids, the way kids are," Schmidt said.
Pernula was taken and released from jail. Any possible charges against her are still pending. null
