How would you like to get these messages on social media? “When you walk out of your house and see me it will be too late… Your next periscope will be your bloody head on a stick.” “You won’t see me coming.” “I’ll Periscope you’re undoing”. “It’s raw and I will take my own life after you’re life is gone.” Well these messages were sent to Malena Morgan, a porn star who is pictured below, and she was none to happy about it…
Periscope, an app that “lets you broadcast videos to the world” was used in this case to broadcast violent death threats…
And, unfortunately for 25 y/o Brian Blankenship, the lunatic who posted them, who is pictured below and whom the FBI claims used the online alias “Joe Cook”, his threats to kill Malena, to put her “bloody head on a stick” and to use the Periscope app to live stream her death resulted in his October 8, 2015 arrest for “transmitting in interstate commerce a communication threatening to injure an identified individual”.
FBI agents alleged that Brian told Malena that he would broadcast her death one (1) day after the on-air shooting of a Virginia news crew in August, claiming that he would carry out her shooting on Periscope. It didn’t take long for FBI agents to track the “Joe Cook” Periscope accounts to Brian.
Why Brain showed such hatred toward Malena (a 5’8″ brunette who is described in her IMDb profile as being a “knock out” and who has 27 adult movie credits from 2011 – 2015) is unknown but Jenna J. Ross, a friend and colleague of Malena (and a 5’2″ brunette who is described in her IMBd profile as being “a stunner” and who has been slightly more active than Malena with 62 adult movies under her, er, belt) and who is pictured below, says that she too was a victim of Brian’s ire, although Jenna did not report him to authorities. Still, Jenna told authorities that “When Malena blocked him [Brian] on social media he couldn’t get to her any more, so he turned it around on me. The best way to hurt her would be to hurt me.”
The FBI also reportedly uncovered emails from Brian to Malena wherein he stated: “I hope you have protection… I have a 9mm and a shotgun your dead b*tch and you won’t see me coming.”
Well then… Memo to Brian (and the Folks):
