BROWNSTOWN, Ind. – A man passed over for a coaching and teaching position allegedly mailed four dead skunks and a dead raccoon to the successful applicant, court documents say.
Travis Tarrants, 40, of southern Indiana was charged Tuesday in Jackson Circuit Court with two counts each of stalking, intimidation and criminal mischief. He was being held without bond.
CBS affiliate WTTV reported that Tarrants allegedly stalked and intimidated a couple because he was not hired as a fourth-grade teacher and basketball coach at an Orange County school.
According to court documents, Tarrants began harassing the man chosen for the positions at the Springs Valley School Corporation in French Lick, and his fiancé.
One of the packages intercepted at a post office contained a dead raccoon and a message that said, “Resign! It Will Not Stop,” documents said.
