Law Enforcement Has Been Notified, and Idaho Dispatch is Looking into Potential Legal Action
January 25, 2022
Boise, Idaho – Recently, Idaho Dispatch has been made aware of an individual who is sending packages to Idaho lawmakers as well as at least one Idaho media outlet containing several emails as well as a “book.”
Contained in the packages is an email that purports to be written by Idaho Dispatch Editor Greg Pruett.
However, Mr. Pruett says that one of the emails contained in the packages is not from him and was fabricated by the individual who sent the package. Mr. Pruett went on to explain,
“In May 2020, an individual claiming to be the anti-Christ sent several lawmakers a strange letter which had a return label in New York. The address on the envelope was the address for the original Book of Mormon printing press. I wrote a story about the letters but had no way of contacting the individual who sent them.
Several months after I wrote the story, an individual emailed me, claiming to be the one who sent the letters, and asked if I had any questions for him. I only replied with one email containing several questions. That was the only response I sent to him, and he responded to me one time after as well. That was the extent of our communication.”
Mr. Pruett went on to say that another email contained in the package was fabricated. The package also included something called “The Book of Aaron.”
Law enforcement officials have been contacted an official report has been filed with the Idaho State Police. Mr. Pruett said he wanted to ensure that law enforcement was aware of the issue just in case the individual sends any threatening words or material to lawmakers in the future and claims it is from him.
Idaho Dispatch is also looking into any potential legal means available in response to the fake material being sent.
