Man Jailed For Sending Letter Written In Blood 2

39-year-old Mark Chambers has learned the hard way that there are better ways to settle a land dispute than sending a letter written in your own blood. A Plymouth magistrate heard how Chambers sent the bloody letter with a picture of himself to the Washingham family who he thought had stolen his land. From the article: "Miss Washingham said that on the same day that the letter arrived, Chambers appeared at the family's home, and they immediately recognized him from the photograph. 'He was talking about the land, stating "you have stolen land off me." He entered the garden and was shouting,' Miss Washingham said. She said Chambers then threw a rock at the family's car, causing damage to a window. The court heard he then asked the man, whose wife and daughters had locked themselves in the house: 'Did you get my letter, written in blood?'" Chambers was sentenced to 126 days in custody.
