Stephen Mocko reports that Sean Boushie sent a death threat to Crystal Cox.
I, Stephen Mocko, being duly sworn, do state upon my oath that I have personal knowledge that I have good reason to believe and do believe based upon the following information:
On or about the night of August 19, 2009 I was forwarded an email by Crystal Cox. In that email it contained a death threat, inflammatory comments against her sexual orientation, and slander against her career, directed at Crystal Cox. I had noticed that the senders email address was firstname.lastname@example.org.Crystal then informed me that it was from a Sean Boushie but could not get any proof. I then took it upon myself to write an email to this email@example.com in a threatening manner in the hopes to get this threatener to reveal their identity. At this point I did not know it was a Sean Boushie. The next day I got a reply message from an email address by firstname.lastname@example.org. I had no knowledge that this was the Sean Boushie that Crystal Cox had told me about.In that fact how did this email@example.com get my email address of firstname.lastname@example.org to send a reply? On the morning of August 28, 2009 at 8.57am, Pacific Standard Time, I received a call from Officer Maury McKinney from the Lincoln County Sheriff’s department. Officer McKinney asked if I had sent an email to a Sean Boushie. He did not ask if I had sent an email to the email address email@example.com. He then proceeded to read the letter I wrote to firstname.lastname@example.org.
There was one question that came to my mind. How did he get that email? Only Sean Boushie, who filed my letter that was sent to email@example.com with Officer McKinney, could have written that threatening and slanderous email against Crystal Cox. Attached hereto as exhibit A. This is circumstantial evidence according to 26-1-102(1) Montana Code Annotaded 2009, that Sean Boushie did in fact write the threats on her life, and purposely caused Crystal Cox to omit her performance of her daily life with the fear that Sean Boushie will carry out his threat on her life.
and I charge that heretofore, and before the making and filing of this complaint, on or before the ____ day of ___________, _____, in the19 Judicial District court, County of Lincoln and the State of Montana, Sean Boushie , did then and there unlawfully and willfully violate Section 45-5-203 Montana Code Annotated, a Forcible felony defined by 45-3-101(2) Montana Code Annotated, against the peace and dignity of the State.
