LOS ANGELES -- A Milwaukee-area man is reportedly being held by authorities in California after he traveled there to act on disturbing online threats against singer Miley Cyrus.
Milwaukee Police contacted both police and sheriff's deputies in Los Angeles after someone notified them about concerning social media posts, a department spokesperson told TODAY'S TMJ4. MPD notified those local authorities the man may be in Los Angeles.
The man's Facebook page shows he posted about a "horrific act" that would be on the news. He also made mention to "getting rid of Liam," apparently a reference to Cyrus' boyfriend, actor Liam Hemsworth.
One post read: "I FELL IN LOVE WITH THE MOST BEATIFUL SINGER ON THE PLANET WHOM I WILL BE WITH TOMORROW. I'M SICK OF VISITING HER IN SPIRT ... SHE ACTUALLY JUMPS INTO MY BODY.."
TMZ reported the West Allis man was eventually found Monday in LA after posting:
"TO CREATE A NEW WORLD I HAVE THE MOST HORRIFIC ACT I MOST COMPLETE. IT WILL BE ON THE NEWS AND IT IS SAD,” and, "I GOT YOUR ADDRESS LIKE YOU INSISTED. I KNOW WHICH WAY TO ENTER."
