A Chicago man has been arrested for allegedly stalking an L.A.-based model named Kourtney Reppert. The suspect, 47-year-old Luis Plascencia, reportedly sent emails to Reppert telling her that he wants her dead, and that included the addresses of her friends and family, threatening to harm them.

According to KTLA, Plascencia wrote that:

"I hope you die in an automobile accident and it crushes your ugly face through the windshield and a large piece of glass cuts your throat."

The emails started back in March. Plascencia reportedly first made contact with Reppert via her Facebook page. The case was picked up by the FBI shortly thereafter, due to their threatening nature and the fact that Plascencia had been able to locate the addresses of people in Reppert's life.
