Junior Alexander Guy began receiving death threats after phone service T-Mobile assigned him George Zimmerman‘s old cell phone number, reports the Huffington Post.
“You deserve to die,” irate callers said. “You murderer!”
The Orlando Sun-Sentinel reports:
The number —407-435-2400 — was the one Zimmerman spelled out to a police dispatcher in a recorded call the night of the shooting that has since been widely circulated by news organizations and is available on the Internet.
Guy, who works at an Orlando wastewater plant, said his phone rang around the clock.
“At 2 o’clock, 3 o’clock in the morning I kept getting these,” he said.
He estimates he received 70 threatening calls.
He has moved out of his home and relocated his mother, who had lived with him, to a different location, he said.
