OSHP probes threatening letters to Ohio GOP lawmakers



Published: Fri, December 7, 2012 @ 1:45 p.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — State law enforcement officials are investigating some threatening letters sent to a half-dozen Republican Ohio House members this fall.

Each of the six lawmakers reportedly got the same letter in September, which also made threats against family members.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating.

An email obtained by WBNS-TV in Columbus sent by the Republican Caucus legal counsel to House members and staff noted that the letters contained “extremely aggressive and threatening language” from a group calling itself the “Army of the 12 Monkeys.”

It’s believed to be a reference to a 1995 film “12 Monkeys,” set in a post-apocalyptic future where a terrorist organization is believed to have released a lethal virus.

The state patrol declined to comment today.
