Marysville Journal-Tribune is reporting that a Marysville, Ohio resident with the misfortune of having the same last name as Alrosa Villa gunman Nathan Gale reported that she has received threats on her life.
According to reports from the Marysville Police Department, the woman, who lives in the 600 block of Windsor Drive, began receiving phone calls from an unidentified man at 3:30 a.m. today.
It is not clear how the caller obtained her telephone number or from where he was calling. The caller allegedly believed the woman was a family member of Gale's and threatened to shoot her in retaliation for the murder of heavy metal guitarist "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott Wednesday night.
Reports indicate the resident attempted to convince the caller that she is no relation to Gale, but to no avail.
The caller's last few messages — left at approximately 6 a.m. — were captured on an answering machine. Local police officers are reviewing the tape as part of their investigation.
Gale was the 25-year-old Marysville resident who gunned down Abbott and several others in the Columbus nightclub on Sinclair Road Wednesday evening.
Abbott was the lead guitarist for DAMAGEPLAN. The group had just begun its concert when Gale stormed the stage and shot the guitarist. Gale killed three others before he was fatally shot by a Columbus police officer.
