Seattle Woman Charged With Tweeting Death Threats To Chris Cornell

Posted by on February 11, 2014


Ever wonder why people go through so much effort to cause trouble on the Internet? Here’s such an example: according to Seattle News station KIRO 7, a woman has been charged with sending death threats to Chris Cornell of Soundgarden via Twitter. But this wasn’t just a few messages from a single account. This woman, Elizabeth Walden, sent Cornell over hundreds of messages from nine different Twitter accounts, some of which implied raping his 13-year-old daughter. So, that’s kind of fucked up.

This isn’t the first time Cornell has had to deal with something like this either. In 2007, he claimed that his ex-wife and one-time manager Susan Silver was sending death threats to Cornell’s family. And a year earlier in 2006, a British man was sending letters also threatening Cornell and his family. Hopefully the arrest of Walden will be the last bit of harassment Cornell has to deal with.
