48-year-old Michael Turner jailed for threatening ex-girlfriend. On Feb 22nd, Kathy Stroud received threatening text messages from her ex-boyfriend, Turner. Stroud and turner were in a serious relationship that ended over a year ago, and they do not live together. The text message read that he was going to burn her alive. This placed Kathy in fear of bodily harm. She received another text message that same day from Turner, stating that he would send explicit photos to her workplace. Turner acted on this threat and sent three explicit photos via email to all the directors of operations at Metro Nashville Republic Charter Schools. A warrant was issued for his arrest, and he was booked on that warrant this week.
