NJ Man Accused of Sending Threatening Facebook Messages
State police say a New Jersey man has admitted sending Facebook messages to several women and teenage girls that stated they only had weeks to live, so they should spend their time wisely.
Twenty-year-old Craig Wyatt Jr. of Hamilton Township now faces multiple counts of terroristic threats, theft of services and harassment, and several municipal police departments also plan to file charges against him. He was being held Wednesday on $35,000 bail, and it was not known if he has retained an attorney.
Investigators say Wyatt admitted using several Facebook accounts, email addresses and phone numbers to send the threatening messages. He did not know most of the victims, and it’s not clear why he sent he messages.
