A Maine woman was arrested after she left a string of threatening voicemails at multiple offices of Maine Senior Senator Susan Collins, WMTW has reported.
According to court records, the woman, identified as Katrina Preble, threatened to shoot Collins in the face and decapitate her.
But when an FBI agent and an Officer of the Bangor Maine Police Department arrived at Preble’s home she claimed Collins threatened her and went on to declare that she’d simply been defending herself when she made those phone calls.
Evidently, that explanation was utterly unconvincing. Law enforcement returned ten days later and arrested Preble.
Unexpectedly, her threats will go in the books as a crime committed across state lines because the server storing Collins’ voicemails is situated outside of Maine. Preble faces charges of making interstate threats.
When news of the threats hit Facebook, people were a taken aback.
Others speculated that another major factor played into Preble’s behavior. These commenters took a moment to get serious.
