FBI arrests Alaska man for allegedly threatening to kill US senator, wear their skin ‘as clothes’

An Alaska suspect was arrested this week after he allegedly threatened to “hunt” down and kill a U.S. senator, officials said.

Arther Graham, 46, of Kenai, was arrested Monday after he allegedly sent a graphic message to a U.S. senator, who was not identified, on Sept. 28, threatening to kill them and wear their skin “as clothes,” U.S. Attorney S. Lane Tucker for the District of Alaska said.

In the threatening message, Graham explained he was facing eviction and had nowhere else to go. He also reportedly said he was formerly homeless. Graham identified himself in the threat, signed it with his name, phone number and address, court documents show.

“I’m in the dark here. Until I get new information [United States Senator 1], my plan is ima’ hunt you down, cut the flesh off your body and wear your skin like clothes. I’ll live inside of YOU. I may as well because I ain’t got nowhere else to live,” Graham said, according to court documents.

 

Graham is scheduled to make an initial appearance before a U.S. magistrate judge on Nov. 3.

The incident comes two days after authorities arrested a different man for threatening to kill Sen. Jacky Rosen, D-Nev.
