The Commerce Police Department is investigating a case of terroristic threats and acts in which a North Carolina man threatened to kill a local woman and rape her daughter — as a police officer listened in on the conversation.
According to the incident report, a 33-year-old white female told police that a man keeps calling the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office’s automated phone line to complain of crimes being committed at her Sunny Lane residence.
When police acted on the tip, the woman said the caller, when asked the nature of the crime, typically says, “they’ll find out when they get there.”
Police responded to a report of “selling pills” at the residence and found no evidence to support the allegation. Later that day, they were called back because the same man had reported a murder at the residence.
This time, the victim and a 28-year-old white male identified the caller as the woman’s former boyfriend, who had relocated to Charlotte, NC, but who calls the woman’s mother at work to cause problems, has called both of them on their cell phones and made death threats via Facebook.
As luck would have it, the man called while the officer was there. With the phone at the Commerce end on speaker, the man reported that he was going to kill the woman and rape her 4-year-old daughter.
The officer observed that the caller sounded intoxicated, and the report indicated that police are trying to find the address of the suspect.
