There are many unstable people in the world and the following story is an example of just one of them.
The Associated Press has reported that a 48-year old man named David Lee Simpson, of New York, has been indicted by a grand jury for threatening to kill two female Turner Broadcasting anchors. They apparently angered him with comments they made about the Jodi Arias trial.
The two anchors were not named but one works out of Atlanta and the other out of New York.
He also threatened a Phoenix woman who came to the defense of the anchors online.
The investigation has been on-going since June. According to his tweets, he threatened to “strap the commentators to a tree naked and leave them to suffer all night and then slit their throats.”
He allegedly told another anchor that he planned to hang her by her feet and “gut her like a deer.”
Investigators can’t say with certainty whether Simpson would have carried out his threats but they found a number of items in his car that were disturbing including:
- Multiple guns
- Several news articles: one about the Newtown mass shooting; another about the shootings of four firemen in New York who had been responding to a fire call, and a printout about a local Arizona woman arrested for bestiality.
Investigators caught him with these items in his car as he was leaving town. The week prior, Mr. Simpson had quit his desk job at a car repair shop.
Officials say that Mr. Simpson will be brought to Arizona this week. He doesn’t yet have a lawyer. He has been charged with computer tampering, class 5 felonies, stalking, and class 3 felonies.
Simpson admitted that he is infatuated and obsessed with Jodi Arias.
This story is further proof that her supporters are mentally unstable.
