PHOENIX — A “fanatical supporter” of President Barack Obama is the prime suspect in an investigation into an Internet death threat against Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Adam Eugene Cox, 33, was arrested in Tennessee Friday on an unrelated warrant for assault.

Working with MCSO, deputies in Knoxville, Tenn., served a search warrant and seized evidence from Cox’s home on Friday after an investigation into the death threat came to light in October.

In that threat, Cox stated Arpaio and his family would be killed, according to MCSO. His postings read, in part: “I plan to kill Arpaio first. He will be filled with a thousand bullet holes before the year is out. I promise you this. He won’t [expletive] with Obama. He will be buried 10 feet under and his whole family will be murdered along with him.”

The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office said the suspect’s postings indicate he is an avid supporter of Obama and that Arpaio’s ongoing investigation into the legitimacy of the president’s birth certificate may be behind the death threat.

Cox’s mother confirmed her son is a fanatical supporter of Obama, according to MCSO officials.

  1. Don’t get your shorts in a wad, Sheriff Joe gets this stuff all the time.
    More so lately with DOJ phoney investigation on how he treats illegals, which to us in AZ is hog wash… If he had to quit doing his job with every threat, he could not have gotten anything done. the “They” do to him what was done to Sara Palin, just left wing b.s.
    Just remember the primary for the republicans is later this month, AZ seems to be trending right on to Newt 2012.
