Matt Roloff says although most of their interactions with the public have been overwhelming positive since he and his wife and kids first put themselves on TLC eight years ago, occasionally the Little People, Big World family has had their problems. The past several weeks though they have been receiving death threats via Facebook, disturbing phone calls from a person or persons, and creepy drive-bys to their farm.
|The Roloffs with repoter Anna Canzano, who successfully|
brought awareness to the seriousness of the threats.
The Roloffs said they have struggled to get the police to take the threats seriously, but at first the police would only send a patrol car out to swing by. One brave local reporter, Anna Canzano, decided to take matters into her own hands, and messaged the Facebook users herself. What she got back was a deeply disturbing threat not just against the Roloffs this time but against the governor of Oregon, the police chief, and "community volunteer" areas in Portland. The messages also called Molly Roloff "sexy" and threatened to rape her and Amy. Canzano took the new threats to the police, who now say they have "people of interest" and that computer forensic specialists and the FBI are involved. The FBI indeed confirmed they are looking into the incidents. Great job, Ms. Canzano. Watch one of her pieces on this disturbing story here.
