LAPD investigating death threats against octuplets' mother

February 12, 2009 |  2:19 pm

Suleman Los Angeles police officials said they would investigate death threats against the woman who gave birth to octuplets.

Nadya Suleman's publicist said some people had sent threats and other ugly messages via e-mail on a website set up to take donations for the eight babies. Suleman has come under criticism by some for having octuplets after already having six children.

Lt. David McGill of the LAPD's West Los Angeles Division said an investigator was going to the office of the publicist, the Killeen Furtney Group, which is in Brentwood.

"First we want to determine if the threats are being sent to the firm or her," McGill said.

He said if the threats were being sent to Suleman, then most probably another agency would investigate the matter because she does not live in the West Los Angeles area. Suleman lives in Whittier but has been living at an undisclosed location since leaving the hospital.
