Religious sect executive picked up by marshals • Wednesday November 19, 2008

Isaacson’s arrest, threats unrelated, authorities say

The executive of a religious sect that’s accused of orchestrating threats against Shawano officials has been picked up by the U.S. Marshals Service for extradition to Maryland on an unrelated contempt of court warrant.

Naomi Isaacson, 34, of Minneapolis, was released to deputy marshals Monday morning after spending the weekend in the Brown County Jail.

Isaacson was arrested Friday by FBI agents in Shawano County on the federal bench warrant.

Authorities in Shawano and the FBI said her arrest had nothing to do with the Shawano threats case.

The Shawano police chief, Ed Whealon, said officials are monitoring a person of interest in the investigation into threats against a list of 60 people, including public and elected officials. Whealon said the person of interest is not Isaacson but is a member of the Samanta Roy Institute of Science and Technology, the nonprofit group of which Isaacson is chief executive officer.

Whealon did not identify the person of interest, citing an ongoing investigation.
