You would think the thugs behind the alleged targeted break-in of the vehicle driven by Burt Newsome’s wife were beyond stupid in this day of high-definition video surveillance and phone tracking software.
But now come the real sick, idiots who sent the Newsome family a threatening package: Five pieces of luggage and numerous clothing outfits. There were approximately three dozen outfits for mom and the young Newsome children.
The message was crystal clear: get ready to pack and leave town.
Were they threatening the family? The father, Burt Newsome? Was he going to be injured, killed or murdered? Or were the wife and children going to “disappear” on a permanent vacation?
All done through an online retailer, the purchase can be tracked using IP addresses and metadata. Even a hacker’s digital trail can be traced.
Our sources tell us at least two law enforcement agencies are investigating the threat, and the online retailer is probing the matter, too.
The Newsome Conspiracy Case was allegedly spearheaded six years ago by a Balch & Bingham partner who was abruptly fired in March of 2017. He is now selling mattresses.
