Police investigate threats in Justina Pelletier case

The Massachusetts State Police have assigned investigators to look into several threats that have been made against staff from the state’s child-protection agency by people who are angry at its handling of the custody controversy surrounding 15-year-old Justina Pelletier.

David Procopio, spokesman for the State Police, confirmed Friday that the Department of Children and Families has given them about a dozen threatening communications to staff, which came through e-mail, telephone, social media, fax, or comments on news stories.
