Seattle Woman Charged for Tweeting Death Threats to Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell
Scary news concerning Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell. According to a recent news report, a Seattle woman has been charged for allegedly tweeting death threats to the rock singer. The woman is said to have written over 100 messages to Cornell from a total of nine different Twitter accounts.
The news came out of Seattle news station KIRO 7 on Feb. 7, detailing the disturbing specifics of what Cornell allegedly went through. “A Seattle woman has been charged for allegedly tweeting death threats to Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell,” begins the news report. “Prosecutors claim Elizabeth Walden had nine different Twitter accounts and sent more than 100 messages to Cornell. They say the postings also alluded to a rape of his 13-year-old daughter. Prosecutors say those tweets constituted cyber-stalking and they filed criminal charges against her this week.”
Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time Cornell and his family have been bombarded with death threats. Cornell began receiving death threats in 2004 when his wife Vicky was pregnant with the singer’s second daughter. The threats reportedly came by mail and email, containing sentences about killing Cornell’s children and wife.
