Markle’s fa­ther re­ceives ‘de­mented’ death threats

The Courier-Mail - - WORLD -

MEX­ICO CITY: Meghan Markle’s fa­ther has al­legedly re­ceived sev­eral “death threats” from a vi­o­lent crim­i­nal.

Thomas Markle was al­legedly sub­jected to “mul­ti­ple threats to his life” from Jose San­doval, the ex-boyfriend of one of Mr Markle’s clos­est fe­male friends.

San­doval has been ac­cused of con­duct­ing “a cam­paign of ter­ror” against Lori Davis, 38, and her 11-year-old daugh­ter Jo­ce­lyn, who refers to Mr Markle as “Un­cle”.

Last week, San­doval – who was jailed for 30 months in the US for il­le­gally en­ter­ing the coun­try be­fore be­ing de­ported in 2000 – al­legedly drove past Mr Markle’s house in Rosar­ito Beach, Mex­ico, and shouted at the re­tired Emmy-win­ning light­ing di­rec­tor: “I’m go­ing to kill you, you fat f---.”

San­doval de­nies the al­le­ga­tions.

The alleged in­ci­dent was in­cluded in a po­lice report filed by Ms Davis last week in which she ac­cused San­doval of slash­ing Mr Markle’s tyres as part of a “de­mented” se­ries of at­tacks.

In the report, Ms Davis also claims: “He (Jose) grabbed me by the neck while twist­ing it … He goes to my un­cle’s house (re­fer­ring to Mr Markle) and tells him that he is go­ing to kill him be­cause he is con­stantly hid­ing me.”
