PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Two lawmakers investigating the state's involvement in Curt Schilling's failed video-game company say they have received anonymous threatening letters.

Foster Republican state Representative Michael Chippendale tells the Providence Journal he sought police protection after receiving a letter last week that told him to "stop poking around" and threatened his family.

House Oversight Committee Chairwoman Karen MacBeth says she received a similar letter in the mail last Thursday.

MacBeth says the letters did not mention the 38 Studios investigation by name. But she says that is the only investigation she and Chippendale are working on together. Her family also is receiving police protection.

State police Maj. Todd Catlow says no other lawmakers have received threats. He says the investigation is active and ongoing.
