In regards to threatening the president, the crazed individual wrote, "I decided that because nobody is taking me serious, and I can't handle my state of mind, that I am going to Washington D.C. to threaten to kill the President of the United States, George Bush."

Jones was arrested on May 22, 1992 outside the White House, according to TMZ. He was released on June 4, 1992, and one day later made threats to kill Michael.

Janet Jackson

In at threatening letter to MJ he wrote, "I'll commit mass murder at a Michael Jackson concert if necessary, in an attempt to murder Michael, then you will have to deal with my situation in the public eye."

The death threat seemed to revolve around an unidentified female linked to MJ.

He said, "I'm 33 years old and never had a real relationship in my life. I can't even slow dance."

Many of the letters were written to local newspapers.

The FBI says that Jones was charged with extortion, pled guilty and was sentenced to prison in 1993, according to TMZ.

Jones believed he was married to Janet Jackson, law enforcement sources told TMZ.

Jones also made threats to kill Janet and even stalk the Jackson family home in Encino.

In the psychotic letters, Jones wrote  "The situation ... is centered around her confused sexuality." He goes on to say if she does not "overcome" her issue over sexuality, "I'm gonna try to kill every homosexual on the face of the earth. If I can't save my wife, they can't be saved."
