A man from Rhode Island allegedly threatened to kill and eat a college professor and “eradicate” Democrats, according to federal officials. Matthew Haviland, a 30-year-old resident of North Kingstown, threatened to murder and eat the professor in a series of emails. Haviland was arrested on Wednesday and faces federal cyberstalking and threat charges.
In emails to the professor, who has publicly advocated for abortion rights, Haviland allegedly threatened to “rip every limb from your body and eat it, piece by piece” and “savor” the teacher’s “innards.” “You will have your face ripped off and eaten by me, personally,” Haviland wrote. He also threatened Democrats, saying that people wearing “pink f*****g hats should all be slaughtered,” according to his indictment. He also allegedly wrote that all Democrats “must be eradicated.”
