JOHNS CREEK, Ga. — A Johns Creek man called police Oct. 22 after he received a threatening text from an unknown number.

The man received the text Sept. 30 from a number that appeared to be from Kansas. 

The text included the man’s current address along with a note that the sender was researching the man’s family. The sender demanded $1,500 or the man’s family would be killed.

A photo of two decapitated people accompanied the text.

The man said he had no idea who could have sent the threat.
