People have been expressing anger at Nadya Suleman (aka Octomom) and her decision to go on welfare to help support her 14 children. Now that outrage has shown up where Suleman and her brood live in La Habra: A vandal trashed Suleman's car outside her home and may have left a threatening note.

Suleman told gossip site TMZ that she caught some "strange noises" coming from outside her OC home early Saturday morning, but she didn't get up to check them out. When she did rise, however, she found neighbors at her door letting her know her car window had been smashed.

Suleman also says she found a handwritten note that read: "Leave California or you will die."

Police in La Habra are investigating the incident, according to City News Service, They say that there was no entry into the vehicle.

But it wasn't until later that police learned someone left a note at the scene. Suleman shared the note with TMZ, but it was not mentioned in the police report. Now officers are working to determine if the note was part of the act of vandalism initially reported.
