Death threats tweeted at Ellen Page are under investigation by Los Angeles police, who have sought a search warrant for account-tracing information from Twitter.
"I'm going to murder Ellen Page. She's dead," an unidentified user wrote, according to L.A. Now.
"Ellen Page," the threat read, "if you continue to date Alexander I will K-1-L-L you in public in the next year ... Be it in a club, at a game, in a restaurant, or when you're signing autographs."
The tweets, possibly sent from two accounts, have since been deleted.
LAPD Threat Management Unit detectives started investigating the messages in June, LAPD spokeswoman Norma Eisenman told L.A. Now. Around the same time, organizers of the L.A. Film Festival, which screened the premiere of Page’s latest flick “To Rome With Love,” received threatening calls targeting the actress.
