Military officials are investigating two Marines after death threats were posted on the web site dedicated to slain Lance Cpl. Maria Lauterbach. The Jacksonville Daily News reported yesterday that Lance Corporal Ron Parikh posted a message on Lauterbach's MySpace memorial page telling its creators to "shut up or get cut up." Parikh is 20 years, old according to his MySpace page, and stationed in California. His MySpace page also contains images of people kissing while apparently trying to kill one another and a Marine martial arts YouTube video. Newschannel three could not find the threats on Lauterbach's memorial page. But other users had responded to the threats. One user wrote: "It's good that you're keeping this page up... It's one of him and all of us... I don't see how someone could say those things." The Jacksonville paper reported that Lance Cpl. Jonathan Cole of Camp Lejuene is also under investigation for comments he made on the internet. The base's spokesmen could not be reached for comment today.
