Last week Adolf Hitler Campbell and his siblings were removed by the New Jersey Division of Youth and Family Services from their home. This removal came even without any reports of abuse or neglect. Or were they?
Heath Campbell has said that the children haven’t been removed while Holland Township police chief David Van Gilson said they were.
The family came into the news when a local grocery refused to add little Adolf’s name to a birthday cake.
The parents of Adolf Hitler have given their other children equally unique names; JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell, 1, and Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie Campbell, who turns 1 in April.
A hearing is scheduled to decide if the children should be placed in another home on Thursday before Superior Court Judge Peter A. Buschbaum at the Hunterdon County Justice Center. An earlier hearing was postponed after Heath Campbell requested a private attorney.
After a story appeared in The Express-Times about the children’s names and the refusal of a supermarket to pen Adolf Hitler on a birthday cake another Campbell family in the area received death threats. Those threats were meant for Heath Campbell. Police are investigating that threat.
The website lehighvalleylive.com
reports on the letter sent to Melanie Campbell in December. The letter was meant for Heath Campbell.
“Your hateful thoughts will cause your death and the deaths of your children,” the letter reads.
“You will not be able to prevent this, you will not know when it will happen, you will not know how it will happen,” it reads. “Your children will die. You will all end up like your Nazi friends: dead.”
The typewritten letter was followed by another in December. Melanie Campbell gave both letters to the police.
Mailing a death threat is punishable with a three to five year prison sentence.
