15. Guy who was my lab partner in high school wrote me a note (complete with picture) that said, “I will kill you and make a sofa out of your skin.” With no context. I still have the note.
A few years later he murdered a coworker over a computer.
16. My Mum got a phone call at about 2am one morning. The man on the phone said “Mrs _______ we’ve just arrested your son. He’s a sick bastard and he’s going to pay. We have sent people to your other son’s apartment now. Don’t expect to ever see them again, they will pay for their crimes”
She called me frantic wanting to check I was safe and then told me that the two nights previous, at around the same time, she had had similar calls threatening to come after my brother and I.
