“Because his whereabouts are as yet unresolved, out of caution, everyone is permitted, and indeed I recommend, to hold your sections remotely until further notice,” read the email.

The email continues with examples of threats from the researcher who has exhibited “highly erratic behavior” since last spring.

“He had left the area as of June last year, but his whereabouts are currently being investigated because today he sent a barrage of threatening email [sic] to many in the department, and many others.

“The material includes a video entitled ‘UCLA Philosophy Mass Shooting’ and an 800-page manifesto with specific threats toward some members of the department.”

Chilling call that saved teen’s life in Riverside catfish murders revealed after ‘killer’s bizarre home pics’ emerge

A TEENAGER catfished by a cop who killed her mom and grandparents was saved by her neighbor's call to police, the girl's aunt has revealed.

Officer Austin Lee Edwards, 28, posed as a teen online before driving from Virginia to California last Friday to kill the girl's family members, authorities said Wednesday.

The sheriff’s deputy then set fire to their Riverside home with Mark Winek, 69; Sharie Winek, 65; and their 38-year-old daughter, Brooke Winek inside, they added.

Michelle Blandin said on Wednesday that her 15-year-old niece was seen getting into a car in distress last Friday - the day of the killings - outside the family home.

A neighbor then called police to report the red Kia Soul as a suspicious car and officers ran the vehicle’s license plate.

They discovered that owner Edwards had filed a police report earlier this year regarding vandalism to the Kia, the chief said.

That police report had Edwards’ cellphone number in it, which allowed investigators to ping his phone and quickly locate him in Southern California.

He then got into a gun battle with San Bernardino sheriff’s deputies and died by a self-inflicted gunshot wound, the coroner’s office said Wednesday.

Michelle - Mark and Sharie’s daughter and Brooke’s sister - said: "The loving neighbors on my parents’ street saw an unfamiliar car and they immediately reported it to authorities.

“Making that call from that neighbor saved my niece’s life and that neighbor is a hero in our eyes.”

On Thursday, pictures of Edwards' newly purchased home in Saltville emerged showing it has tinted windows, making it difficult to see inside.

Authorities have not provided additional details about Edwards and the teen's communications. Officials are looking into whether he victimized other minors across the country.

It’s also unclear whether this was the girl’s first in-person encounter with Edwards or whether she was aware that he was coming to California, officials said.

But they did say the teen had stopped sending messages to Edwards after he requested nudes.

Authorities believe Edwards parked his vehicle in a neighbor’s driveway, walked to the home and killed the family members before leaving with the girl on Friday.

Officials have not yet determined how he entered the home, killed the victims or set the fire.

Blandin said: "When you are talking to your children about the dangers of their online actions, please use us as a reference.

"Tell our story to help your parenting. Not out of fear, but out of an example of something that did happen."
