Heather Korbulic holding a DETR update on June 5, 2020.

LAS VEGAS (FOX5)-- Former DETR interim director Heather Korbulic filed an incident report after receiving threats against her life.

According to the Carson City Sheriff's Office, Korbulic called deputies to report personal information that was published on an anti-government social website. The post contained Korbulic's name, date of birth, phone number, and home address.

Korbulic changed her phone number, but wanted to alert deputies and requested passing checks in case the public came to harass her. The Sheriff's office contacted Reno Police to begin passing checks at her home address.

Deputies advised Korbulic to alert social media companies about the post so they could be flagged and removed

Heather Korbulic announced her resignation from DETR on June 19 because of the reported threats. She returned to her previous role with the Silver State Health Exchange as Executive Director.

Boo Hoo. Like all worthless liberal government employees, she is trying to claim victim status. The real victims are the thousands of us who haven't received a penny since the lockdown.


Should’ve done her job and paid people and maybe threats wouldn’t have happened.
