Jose Canseco’s book “Juiced” is generating more than its share of controversy. It’s also provoking death threats.
The Chicago Tribune reported Saturday than an e-mail death threat submitted through Canseco’s Web site forced Canseco to halt his book-signing tour.
Canseco’s attorney Robert Saunooke told the paper the FBI is investigating the threat and has identified the sender of the e-mail with help from AOL.
“We are not taking the threat lightly,” Saunooke told the paper. “It’s not that I believe Jose is in immediate danger. He’s a black belt in three different kinds of karate, so he can take care of himself.
No truth to the rumor that the offending e-mail came from the address “firstname.lastname@example.org”.
