TAIPEI, Taiwan -- Taiwanese Mandopop singer Jam Hsiao (蕭敬騰), who narrowly escaped being splashed with urine and feces last October, received a threatening letter on Friday, according to the company that represents him.
Enclosed in the letter, which had Hsiao's name on it, were meal worms and paper money burned for the deceased, said Warner Music Taiwan.
The company reported the case to the police at about 4 p.m., and they said the evidence was then sent to the forensic science center for further investigation.
The attack on Hsiao in October was far more graphic, when men riding scooters threw feces and urine into the singer's car, hitting his driver but not Hsiao himself.
Four men were charged with intimidation and public insult early in November, and the award-winning singer appeared at a court hearing on the case to explain what happened in October and describe threatening calls he received before that.
Though the four men involved in the attack were charged, they are thought to be hired guns rather than the mastermind behind the harassment campaign, who has yet to be identified despite widespread speculation.
The singer, known for his explosive high notes, rose to fame after he appeared on a local talent show in 2007.
