  • Beverly man accused of sending threatening letters to Trump Jr., others

A man living in eastern U.S. state of MA was arrested Thursday for allegedly sending white powder in an envelope to the eldest son of U.S. President Donald Trump, the authorities said.

The Latest on the arrest of a man charged with sending white powder letters to five people, including Donald Trump Jr.

Back on February 12, Vanessa Trump - Donald Trump Jr.'s wife - was taken to the hospital after opening a letter containing a suspicious substance.

The envelope sent to Trump included a typed message calling him an "awful, bad person", according to court documents. This is the reason why people hate you, so you are getting what deserve. Deborah Stabenow of MI; U.S. Attorney Nicola T. Hanna of the central district of California, Antonio Sabato Jr., a Republican congressional candidate in California, and Stanford law professor Michele Dauber, authorities said.

He criticized Dauber for her efforts to recall a judge who had sentenced a Stanford University athlete who was convicted of sexual assault, to only six months in jail.

"You are an very bad, terrible person, I am surprised that your father lets you speak on TV".

Frisiello is being held pending a court hearing scheduled for Monday at 2 p.m. EST in Worcester, the U.S. Attorney's office said in a tweet on Thursday afternoon.

His parents, who declined to speak to reporters, sat about 20 feet away.

Gleason described him as "very much an overwhelmed young man who has got some issues and some difficulties that he's been dealing with through his life".




Scott Gleason, Frisiello's lawyer, said later that his client will plead not guilty to the charges.

Each count of mailing a threat to injure the person of another carries a maximum prison sentence of five years for a threat to a non-federal official and 10 years for a threat to a federal official.

US authorities have been on alert for mail containing white powder since 2001, when envelopes laced with anthrax were sent to media outlets and USA lawmakers, killing five people.

Mr. Hanna's letter referenced Mark Salling, a former star of the TV show "Glee" who killed himself after he was being prosecuted on child-pornography charges: "That's for murdering Mark Salling!"

Frisiello, 24, worked at Catholic Charities of Boston's Peabody child care center. Frisiello has been placed on leave after officials there were contacted by the FBI Thursday morning, according to a statement from Kathryn Dunford, the organization's marketing and communications specialist.

Duane Anderson, chairman of the Beverly Democratic City Committee, told The Salem News that Frisiello attended its meetings as recently as last month. Authorities were able to obtain Frisiello's computer's IP address from payments to the company.

Frisiello was identified as the suspect when investigators combing Twitter noticed that a glitter bomb was mailed to one of the white powder letter recipients. The glitter letter indicated it came from the website www.shipyourenemiesglitter.com, and the company owner confirmed Frisiello had ordered it, according to court documents.

Connelly said investigators found an 8 1/2-by-11 piece of paper that appeared to contain remnants of the cut-out messages that Frisiello allegedly sent to the victims, as well as receipts for stamps and packing tape that matched the ones used by Frisiello.
