A Winter Park woman said she began getting death threats to her
cellphone after a jury acquitted George Zimmerman.
She said her number is one digit away from Zimmerman’s number and someone posted her number online thinking it was his.
Lori Tankel said she’s used to getting a ton of calls for work through her job as a sales representative for different horse companies.
But she could have never expected what began Saturday night.
“My phone just started to blow up. Phone call after phone call, multiple phone
calls,” Tankel said.
She said the calls and death threats to her cell began just minutes after a jury acquitted Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.
“We’re going to kill you, we’re going to get you. Watch your back,” said someone on a call.
