Man Accused Of Threatening To Kill US Health Expert, And His Family
A 56-year-old man, has been arrested on suspicion of sending repeated threats to harm US health expert, Anthony Fauci.
According to a newly unsealed criminal complaint, Thomas Patrick Connally, Jr., sent a series of profanity-laden emails to Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), and Francis Collins, the director of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), in which he also rants about billionaires Bill Gates and George Soros, following his arrest in West Virginia Monday.
Some of the emails were sent via an encrypted email service based in Switzerland and contained death threats. He started sending the threat in 2020 and continued into this year, when the writer complained in April about “mandatory vaccines” . The last email was sent July 21.
The first threatening email Connally allegedly sent to Fauci in December 2020 contained the subject line “Hope you get a bullet in your compromised satanic skull.”
However, Connally, is accused of writing in another: “You and your entire family will be dragged into the street, beaten to death, and set on fire.”
Fauci, who had advised two administrations (Trump and Biden) on the COVID-19 pandemic, has become a target for conspiracy theorists and others with a political agenda.
He had to step up his security last year.
