HARTFORD — A Connecticut man with a history of threatening public figures mailed threatening letters to local journalists who wrote stories on racial issues, the subjects of those stories, and U.S. Supreme Court justices, federal authorities charged Wednesday.
Garrett Santillo, 43 of Washington Avenue, Hamden, appeared in U.S. District Court Wednesday where he was released on a $100,000 non-surety bond set by Magistrate Judge Thomas O. Farrish. Santillo declined to comment as he walked out of court with his family shortly before 5:30 p.m. His next court date was scheduled for July 26.
