I do wonder why this apparently hasn't been reported yet. If an
arbcom member does have knowledge of this, they should know to forward
it to the authorities. Keeping it to themselves is the last thing
they should do, because these kinds of idiots (weak morons trying to
make themselves feel strong by threatening someone they consider
weaker) thrive on secrecy.

Armed Blowfish claims to have received a series
of threatening emails
from an anonymous Wikipedian, in what seems to be a sloppy and
worrying vigilante action.
Threats should be reported to the police, and the police can take the
appropriate action. I'm sure the WMF will cooperate with any
appropriately made requests for information, that's the only action
they need to take. I don't think we should take it upon ourselves to
investigate the matter - investigations of criminal acts should be
left to the appropriate authorities.
