Nancy Grace and Jane Velez Mitchell can breathe a sigh of relief!
David Lee Simpson, the 48-year old man who threatened to tie them naked to a tree, "leave them to suffer all night," and then slit their throats, has been caught, having guns, binoculars, zip ties, a knife and a police radio in his possession at the time of his arrest.
What the what! Glad this American Horror Story has been put behind bars!
David was apparently upset about the hosts' coverage of the Jodi Arias trial when he made the threats. According to one source however, CNN didn't take these threats lightly:
“CNN took the threats very seriously and both Grace and Velez-Mitchell were aware of the threats from Simpson during the end of the Arias trial and throughout the George Zimmerman trial but they continued to do their live shows on location.”
The source went on to say that the threat became a real danger when David quit his job and sold all his belongings.
Whoa, so scary! We're just glad that Nancy and Jane are safe!
