Los Angeles police aren’t divulging any details into its investigation into a series of death threats against actress Ellen Page of Halifax.
The threats reportedly include messages sent on Twitter.
“I can only confirm that there is an on-going investigation about that, but we’re not answering questions or granting interviews at this time,” Los Angeles Police Department spokesman Richard French told Metro by phone on Tuesday.
“Apparently, investigators may believe answering questions could compromise their investigation in some way. I don’t know what their specific reasons are.”
The LA Times and the celebrity blog site TMZ obtained a search warrant affidavit that quotes one tweet as stating: “I’m going to murder Ellen Page. She’s dead.”
Reports say the threats include a phone call to organizers of the L.A. Film Festival, which screened Page’s movie To Rome with Love in June.
The Juno star is not the only celeb to draw unwanted attention on the micro-blogging site Twitter.
