Man With Alter Ego Threatens Family

Wednesday, July 23, 2014 - by Hollie Webb

A man called police after he said his stepson broke into his home and told him his alter ego named "Delta V" would kill his family.

He told police that his stepson, 40-year-old Tracy Wileman, had been told not to come back. However, he said Wileman broke in through the back window.

He also said Wileman had "gotten in his face" and tried to fight him and his 25-year-old daughter.

Before the incident, they said Wileman had made threats on Facebook, posting about wanting to kill them. Both said they are afraid for their lives and want him to stay away.

When officers arrested Wileman, they said he told them he would get out of jail and come kill them too. He also told them that "Delta V" would be the one who did the killing.

Wileman was charged with aggravated burglary, domestic assault, and retaliation against an officer.

Wileman has multiple prior assault charges on his record. He is scheduled to appear before General Sessions Court Judge Gary Starnes on July 28.
