An ex-strip club worker has been sentenced after she admitted sending condoms filled with explosives in the mail.
49-year-old Kimberly Lynn Dasilva pleaded guilty to the charges of sending threatening letters and flammable material through the post.
The ‘flammable materials’ included condoms filled with a mixture of petrol and the Drâno drain cleaner – a combination that can cause an explosion.
Her targets included strip clubs where she had previously worked, as well as a television station and a radio station. She claimed that she was fed up with being mistreated by men.
The incident occurred in Boston and there were several domestic papers that carried the article but it was only in the UK that they mentioned the materials used. The other articles I found were:
