Another person has filed a complaint, alleging an Evansville City Councilwoman made threatening remarks.
Evansville's Supervisor of Cemeteries, Chris Cooke, filed a report with Evansville Police over the weekend.
According to the report, Cooke received a text, phone call and email Friday that made him concerned for his safety.
While the report does not name the person behind those messages, several sources tell Eyewitness News, they were comments made by Stephanie Brinkerhoff-Riley.
Although it's unknown if they were sent from the Councilwoman directly to Cooke.
The report does not disclose what the messages actually said.
We reached out to Cooke, but he told us he's not commenting at this time.
This is just the latest in what's been an eventful few days.
On Thursday night, Brinkerhoff-Riley took to Facebook, writing a negative post about her former campaign chairman, Alex Jarvis.
A string of messages between the Councilwoman and Jarvis' significant other followed.
Messages he believed to be a threat to his life.
Early Friday, Jarvis filed an incident report with EPD. He also filed for a protective order.
Later in the day, Brinkerhoff-Riley took to Facebook again, this time with a public confession, admitting she struggles with alcoholism and relapsed this spring.
Then in an exclusive interview with Eyewitness News, she joined Brad Byrd for In-Depth, Friday night, where she talked about the personal admission.
