PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Police are looking for a 35-year-old man wanted for allegedly threatening the life his probation officer.

Investigators say Theodore Hatcher, whose last known address was Idlewood Avenue in East Carnegie, is accused of going on a telephone tirade – warning he would take the life of his probation officer after Hatcher’s mother was arrested earlier this month, and died of an apparent heart attack a few days later.

The woman was charged with hindering apprehension after sheriff’s deputies showed up at her home looking for her son.

In profanity-laced voicemail messages left on his probation officer’s phone, police report Hatcher said: “I’m going to twist your {expletive} head off. I don’t give a {expletive} if you lock me up forever.”

Hatcher continued: “I will never let this go as long as I live… You killed my mom, something’s gotta go down.”

“Those death threats were very explicit, very violent, and we certainly are taking them very seriously,” Pittsburgh Police Lt. Kevin Kraus told KDKA-TV.

If you have information on Hatcher’s whereabouts, Pittsburgh Crime Stoppers would like to hear from you at 412-255-8477.

Callers can remain anonymous.
