The Daily Mail is reporting that Fiorenza, 41, was taken into custody on Monday morning. She is accused of sending the death threat emails in May in an unsealed criminal complaint. Her charges include transmitting threats to kill or injure another person in interstate commerce, according to documents from the US Attorney’s office in Chicago.

The case was unsealed this week and was filed earlier in August in a US District Court in southern Florida.

The first email was sent to the headmaster of an educational institution in Palm Beach, Florida, which is believed to be Barron Trump’s school, according to an affidavit submitted by a US Secret Service agent.

“I will state that I will shoot Donald Trump Sr. AND Barron Trump straight in the face at any opportunity I get!” Fiorenza allegedly vowed in her May 21 email.

A second email was reportedly sent to the same headmaster on June 5 and viciously threatened in part, “I’m going to slam a bullet into Barron Trump’s head with his father IN SELF-DEFENSE!”

On Facebook, Fiorenza’s account reportedly features a number of anti-Trump posts accusing him of conspiracy theories involving elite pedophile rings in Hollywood.

She also posted a meme of Trump in handcuffs stating, ” I have a dream…” A number of her posts show the former president hanging from a tree.

The violently unstable woman has also used social media to accuse Oprah Winfrey, former Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, and music producer Calvin Harris of differing crimes.

On Instagram, she pushed the conspiracy theory that Soundgarden lead singer Chris Cornell and Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington were murdered. Both men committed suicide.

But her primary focus seems to be Trump and his family. Fiorenza has repeatedly called for his arrest and has spewed accusations of him belonging to the Illuminati on Facebook, according to the Daily Mail.

CBS News Chicago reported that Fiorenza made her first appearance in a US District Court in Chicago on Monday afternoon. A judge has reportedly mandated that she has to appear in a district court in Florida to answer the charges. The judge will determine how she will be transferred at a Wednesday hearing.

According to WGN9, Fiorenza appeared in court at the Dirksen Federal Building where her ankles were shackled and she could be seen donning a tattoo that said “Goethe.”

Fiorenza was reportedly interviewed by Secret Service agents on June 14 at the agency’s Chicago field office. She was presented with copies of the emails according to the affidavit. Federal agents claim that she admitted to sending the threatening emails from her home in Plainfield.

On her Facebook page, Fiorenza claims to be a former social studies teacher at Chicago Public Schools. CPS confirmed she was a district employee from Sept. 22, 2019, until she was fired on Aug. 30, 2020. CPS would not confirm she was a teacher or say why she was terminated.

Fiorenza faces up to five years in prison if she is convicted and counsel has been appointed to her case.

Many more decried the death threats as well and some wondered why it took so long to address them:
