Erin Andrews is having a very rough year. First an Illinois guy videotapes her naked in her hotel room and puts the video online for anyone to see, and now she receives death threats via email.
The video guy has been dealt with; it was some stalker named Michael David Barret, who ended up being sentenced to 30 months in jail. But the identity of the person threatening her life is still unknown, even though the FBI has been notified and they’re working on it. The emails started arriving at sport radio’s The Dan Patrick Show last fall and were sexual in nature, but a few days ago they became violent and explicitly threatened Erin with murder.
In the meantime, Erin Andrews announced that she still intends on being on Dancing With The Stars and told People magazine:
I don’t want to let my family down, and I don’t want to let myself down. I’m not going to stop living my life.
