The internet troll who threatened to kill
Frank Zimmerman, 60, had been found guilty in his absence last month of sending an electronic message that was ‘grossly offensive or of an indecent, offensive or menacing character’.
In one email, he told Mrs Mensch that her computer and phones had been hacked and that images of her family would be posted online. His email contained foul-mouthed insults and ordered Mrs Mensch to stop using Twitter, where she has 50,000 followers.
In the most chilling message, Zimmerman told the 40-year-old Corby MP: ‘You now have a Sophie’s choice. Which kid is to go? Who will you choose?’
