It was not a very merry Christmas for one Connecticut family.
Gordon Bissonnette was charged with “second-degree intimidation based on bigotry bias, second-degree threatening and second-degree harassment” after he made death threats to his lesbian sister.
Bissonnette left threatening messages on his sister Corrinne’s voicemail starting December 12 up until Christmas Day. He threatened to not only kill Corinne, but her spouse as well if he saw them on Christmas, fearing they would turn his 18-year-old daughter gay.
“If she [expletive] with my child again, I will execute her myself. Corinne, if she goes against me, there will be bullets flying. She cannot talk to me. I wanna execute her. I will kill a gay,” Bissonnette said in a voicemail, according to a police report. “I’ll put a bullet in both their heads. If they turn my daughter gay, I’m gonna kill them both. I’m gonna blow their brains out.”
Bissonnette also said he planned to throw a smoke bomb at his sister and wife’s house on Christmas so they’d think it was gun smoke and “freak out.”
Bissonnette’s bond is set at $75,000 and he was issued four protective orders on behalf of his mother, sister, sister’s wife, and brother. He will be held in custody until he appears again in court on January 24.
