Craig Wyatt, 20, is accused of threatening random women on Facebook, telling them that they were going to die, Egg Harbor Township police said in a press release.

Wyatt’s bail for the Egg Harbor Township charges is $100,000. He is currently incarcerated at the Burlington County Jail.

He was arrested in September on similar charges.

Egg Harbor Township police say more cases involving Wyatt were reported in Bellmawr, Bordentown, Cherry Hill, Collingswood, Deptford, Denville, Eastampton, Evesham, Forham Park, Gloucester Township, Hamilton Township, Merchantville, Mount Holly, Pemberton, Southampton, Toms River, Voorhees and West Deptford.

“He basically would harass the victims, by sending messages telling them that they had a few weeks to live, so they should use their time wisely,” said State Police spokesman Sergeant Adam Grossman in a news release from late September 2012.

It started in July 2012 when the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children reached out to New Jersey State Police to report that an individual named Jimmy Raketerra had sent a threatening message to a juvenile victim from Browns Mills.  It’s believed that Wyatt used phony profiles to harass the victims.

In August, the State Police detectives were contacted by Voorhees Township Police Department for help with four additional juvenile victims who reported recieving threats on Facebook.

After that, a bulletin was sent to all law enforcement agencies across the state to see if there were more victims.

“Twenty-one police departments located additional victims claiming that they were threatened by the same person,” Grossman said in the September news release.
