Woman Allegedly Sent Anonymous Notes to Neighbors: 'Your Children Look Delicious'
A woman who was angry about her neighbors' noisy children sent them anonymous notes saying the kids looked delicious, according to police.
Carrie Pernula, 38, reportedly admitted to sending the unsigned notes to her neighbors in Champlin, Minnesota, WCCO reported.
“The children look delicious. May I have a taste?” read one letter.
The parents posted an image of the note to a community Facebook page, writing: "Opened our mail today to this letter. Obviously my stomach started doing somersaults."
In response to the letter, they added: "The answer is NO! NO you may not have my children in any way, shape, or form. And beyond anything physical you may NOT rob them of the security and comfort they feel...
"What you MAY do, since you were so formal in your letter to ask, is you MAY turn yourself into the police, or you MAY seek help for your sexual and/or homicidal urges. Either way, the children of this community are off limits."
The terrified parents contacted police, and investigators traced the magazine purchases to Pernula's home, WCCO reported.
Officers arrested her on suspicion of harassment and stalking, but she has not been charged and was released on Monday, according to reports. Pernula has not yet responded to requests for comment.
But when confronted, she reportedly admitted to sending the notes.
Champlin Deputy Police Chief Ty Schmidt told the local channel: "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."
