Mr. Henry James Mason, investigators said in a police report, threatened to harm and kill members of the Savage family in retaliation for attempting to contact daughter Joycelyn Savage.
Mason reportedly made the threat against Timothy Savage in May 2018.
Following the finale of Surviving R. Kelly on January 5, it has been reported that the Fulton County District Attorney has begun interviews in the latest probe into the ongoing allegations against Kelly, including one of his alleged sex cult hostages, 23-year-old Jocelyn Savage. The couple was interviewed in the docuseries, along with numerous other women.
For what it's worth, Joycelyn told TMZ a couple of times over the last two years that she is with Kelly of her own free will.
Joycelyn Savage has denied being held against her will.
This comes a day after Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx made an urgent plea for R. Kelly sexual abuse victims to come forward.
Aol.com reports that investigators from the Fulton County District Attorney's office are looking into the incidents documented in the series and have reached out to several of the victims.
"In order to have an investigation we have to have victims and witnesses who are willing to come forward with information", Foxx said. "We can not seek justice without you", Kim Foxx said.
The Associated Press reported that in 2008, a Cook County jury acquitted Kelly on 14 counts of child pornography after he was accused of engaging in sex acts with a girl as young as 13.
She added that her office is talking to two families whose loved ones had been in contact with Kelly.
"I was sickened. I was sickened by the allegations, I was sickened as a survivor, I was sickened as a mother, I'm sickened as a prosecutor", she said of the docuseries. I'm an open book!
