According to the report "A Seattle woman has been charged for allegedly tweeting death threats to Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell. Prosecutors claim Elizabeth Walden had nine different Twitter accounts and sent more than 100 messages to Cornell. They say the postings also alluded to a rape of his 13-year-old daughter. Prosecutors say those tweets constituted cyber-stalking and they filed criminal charges against her this week."
This vile state of affairs is not the first time that Chris has had to deal with harassment and threats, as there were incidents in 2004 by post and electronically.
Soundgarden will headline the Sasquatch! Festival in Washington in July following a string of dates in South America and Europe including three German dates with Black Sabbath in June.
