Kerr and her family have been rocked by the tone and personal nature of the threat.

“It was something that was personal and that threatened to affect my family, so obviously I’m taking it very seriously,” she said.

Kerr contacted police on Tuesday after receiving the threats to a personal email account, not a social media site.
