NJ State Police Arrest Man Who Sent Threatening Messages To Facebok Users

As a result of a cyber-tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), detectives from the New Jersey State Police Digital Technology Investigations Unit arrested a Hamilton Township man for sending threatening messages on Facebook.

In July of this year, NCMEC notified the New Jersey State Police that an individual using the name Jimmy Raketerra sent a threatening message to a juvenile from Browns Mills, N.J. On August 3rd, state police detectives were contacted by the Voorhees Township Police Department; Camden County for assistance with four separate juvenile victims receiving threats via Facebook.

A bulletin was sent to all New Jersey Law Enforcement agencies to ascertain if there were any other victims related to this complaint. Twenty-one police departments located additional victims that said they had been threatened by the same person. Detectives analyzing information identified Craig L. Wyatt Jr., 20, of Hamilton Township as a suspect. On Thursday, September 20th, detectives located and interviewed Wyatt at his residence. He admitted to using multiple Facebook accounts, email addresses, and phone numbers to communicate with his victims. He would tell the victims that they had a few weeks left to live, so they should spend their time wisely.

Wyatt Jr. was charged with multiple counts of terroristic threats, theft of services, and harassment. He was lodged in the Atlantic County Jail in default of $35,000 bail.

Criminal charges are also pending from these law enforcement agencies:

Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office Florham Park

Bellmawr Gloucester Twp

Bordentown Hamilton Twp (Atlantic County)

Cherry Hill Merchantville

Collingswood Mount Holly

Deptford Pemberton

  1. This type of story is sadly not an uncommon one. Do we know what the perps motives were behind this? Were his victims random or did he know them? I think that we need stricter Federal regulations over cyber bullying and I also think that providers like Facebook, Google+ , etc. need to implement stricter security protocal to detect people using multiple accounts. Either by IP address or by allowing a “probaionary period” where if someone sets up an account but never adds friends and just uses the message service, they should be removed/baned.

  2. Just because many frum yidden do it doesn’t carry much weight. Kudos to number 1 for mustering the strength to heed our gedolim and disconnect from one of the most damaging aspects of the internet. Just as an aside, many studies have shown that usage of facebook (and other social netwoking sites)have ruined relationships and caused innapropriate relationships, not to mention the detrimental effect on like childrens (and adults)omg lol social skills.May we all be zocheh to the strength to disconnect. A gut kvittel
