The threats came in the mail and to date, there have been 25 letters that warn of nuclear bombs destroying America. People who got them called the FBI and CBS 2′s Kristyn Hartman learned, the Bureau’s Chicago office is leading the investigation.

A number of days ago, an envelope, with a Chicago postmark and a hand-written address to her private investigations firm, came in the mail.
