Violent Threat Made At Care Facility Under Scrutiny For Coronavirus Deaths


LITTLETON, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Littleton Police are investigating a threat made at a long-term care facility in Littleton, which has been under criticism for its response to the coronavirus pandemic.

According to local police, the violent threat was written on a brown paper bag. It was found by staff on Wednesday, April 15 at around 6:20 a.m. on the sign at the entrance to the Life Care Center of Nashoba Valley.

Officials said the note "made threatening, violent remarks against the Life Care Center in reference to recent deaths at the facility due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19)."

The threat comes less than a week after Maria Krier, a nurse who blew the whistle on the outbreak at Nashoba Valley care facility, died of coronavirus.

Last month, town officials said the care facility had been stonewalling their investigation into the deaths of at least 14 residents inside the home.
