Threatening letters sent to Naples homeowner

A woman and her son, who have been leading an effort to get their neighboring golf course to remove shrubs that now block the view from their home, received pornographic and threatening letters in the mail.
"You got nothing blankety blank else to do and it had a lot of profanity and naked pictures on the back," said Paul Rodgerson, who attempted to describe the vulgarity of the information written in the letter sent to his house last Monday.
Along with the threatening letter, pornographic photos were also attached to them, which he says are too vile to describe.
"My mother is in the house now and hasn't been out in three or four days because she fears for her life."
Rodgerson and his mother Eileen are trying to find out how the threatening letter and porn pictures are linked to their efforts to get the La Playa Golf Course, which sits just outside their backyard, to remove shrubs planted a couple of months ago to be removed.
The mother and son have been unsuccessful in their efforts to get the golf course to change its mind even though they have collected more than 150 signatures in a petition to remove the trees.
They tell me they do not suspect anyone in the neighborhood because of the support.
“We got not one negative response from anyone in the neighborhood,” said Paul Rodgerson.
Many residents, some who have lived in homes that border the course for decades, have always enjoyed an unobstructed view.
But the new shrubs that were planted will soon grow and completely block any sight of the one public golf course, who was turned private years ago.
The threatening letter was written on a petition, which was passed around to homes in the neighborhood, and the porno picture was stapled to it and mailed to their address.
Both are now in the hands of Collier County Sheriff's Office Investigators.
