    HOLLAND TOWNSHIP, N.J. — Police in Holland Township are investigating a death threat mailed to a family mistaken for residents who named their son Adolf Hitler Campbell.

    Melanie Campbell is not related to Heath and Deborah Campbell, who complained when a supermarket refused to spell out their 3-year-old son's name, Adolf Hitler, on a birthday cake.

    However, her daughter's name is Heather and was listed in the phone directory under Campbell, H.

    A simple request for a name on a three year old's birthday cake has caused a controversy because of the person who he is named after.

    The typed, unsigned letter said her children would die and "you will all end up like your Nazi friends: dead."

    Police tell The Easton Express-Times if they can find the person who wrote the letter, he would be charged with making terroristic threats.

    The couple who wanted the birthday cake got it inscribed at a Wal-Mart in Pennsylvania.
