Woman Charged For Tweeting Death Threats To SOUNDGARDEN's CHRIS CORNELL

February 10, 2014

According to Seattle news station KIRO 7, a local woman has been charged for allegedly tweeting death threats to SOUNDGARDEN frontman Chris Cornell. The woman reportedly sent over 100 messages to Cornell from a total of nine different Twitter accounts. The postings also alluded to a rape of Cornell's 13-year-old daughter.

Prosecutors say those tweets constituted cyber-stalking and they filed criminal charges against the woman last week.

Back in 2006, Cornell and his wife, Vicky received death threats in which a man described how he planned to kill Vicky and her children, Christopher, and Toni. The private investigators Cornell hired to look into who was sending the letters said the stalker was British.

In December 2007, TMZ.com reported that Cornell sought a restraining order against a man who was allegedly hired to do the "dirty work" of the woman to whom the singer was once married.

Cornell claimed his ex-wife, Susan Silver — the one-time manager of ALICE IN CHAINS and SOUNDGARDEN — sent his family "numerous threatening and terrifying death threats." Chris claimed in court documents that Silver even threatened to harm the rocker's son.
