Hitler Cake Death Threat Sent to Wrong Family
Heath Campbell, left, with his wife Deborah and son Adolph Hitler, 3, pose in Easton, Pa.,, on Tuesday. Deborah and her husband Heath attempted to by a birthday cake for their son at a near by ShopRite supermarket in Greenwich, N.J. and were told that the store would not inscribe Happy Birthday Adolf Hitler on the cake.
HOLLAND TOWNSHIP, N.J. — Police in Holland Township are investigating a death threat mailed to a family mistaken for residents who named their son Adolf Hitler Campbell.
Melanie Campbell is not related to Heath and Deborah Campbell, who complained when a supermarket refused to spell out their 3-year-old son's name, Adolf Hitler, on a birthday cake.
However, her daughter's name is Heather and was listed in the phone directory under Campbell, H.
The typed, unsigned letter said her children would die and "you will all end up like your Nazi friends: dead."
Police tell The Easton Express-Times if they can find the person who wrote the letter, he would be charged with making terroristic threats.
The couple who wanted the birthday cake got it inscribed at a Wal-Mart in Pennsylvania.
