Reporter and Dancing with the Stars contestant, Erin Andrews was first the victim of a peeping tom and is now receiving death threats via e-mail.

Since September, about a dozen e-mails were sent to DirecTV threatening Andrews, her attorney Marshall Grossman said, according to the Chicago Tribune.

The e-mails referenced Michael David Barrett, the 48-year-old insurance executive from Westmont, Ill., who was sentenced to 2.5 years in prison for secretly recording nude videos of Andrews.

“He refers to Barrett in his e-mail in a way to make clear to us that situation had some influence,” said Grossman.

The e-mails were sexual, violent, and even detailed location and method of these acts. The man’s identity has not been released yet, but the FBI believe he lives on the East Coast.

Andrews has requested extra security on DWTS and hired private security for herself and family. She has not sought a retraining order yet.
