Woman Allegedly Left Neighbors ‘The Children Look Delicious’ Notes
Champlin, MN - A 38-year-old woman has admitted to sending anonymous threats to a family saying she wanted to taste and lick their children.
The first anonymous threat arrived by mail September 27. The two short sentences said "The children look delicious. May I have a taste?"
The family lives in a champlin neighborhood. They have two elementary school students.
Terrified, they called the Champlin Police Department and posted on a Champlin community Facebook page, saying in part, "Opened our mail today to this letter. Obviously my stomach started doing somersaults."
Then, the family began to received magazine subscriptions.
"Instead of a name on the address label it said things like 'tasty children,' along those lines,' Said Champlin Deputy Police Chief Ty Schmidt.
Champlin police traced the magazines and last Friday arrested Carrie Pernula. Police say she admitted to the threats.
"She was angry because the kids were leaving things in her yard and I think being a little noisy, being kids, the way kids are," said Schmidt.
Pernula was released from jail Monday and is believed to be back at her home.
Champlin police say its disturbing someone would create such fear.
