NEW YORK -- The Secret Service, FBI and New York Police Department are investigating what sources tell CBS News is a threatening piece of mail sent to Donald Trump's son, Eric Trump.
The mail, sent to Eric Trump at his posh Manhattan residence at 100 Central Park South, also known as Trump Parc East, was opened by his wife Thursday.
A source close to the investigation said the letter had a Massachusetts postmark and warned that if Donald Trump doesn't withdraw from the race for the Republican presidential nomination -- paraphrasing -- harm will come to the kids.

By the way, waiting for the media to blame Trump for his incendiary rhetoric.
“Tolerant” progressives at it again
flashback to Ross Perot.
Media’s fault. They’ve whipped a whole lot of absolutely NOTHING up into a frenzy.
CBS is part of the problem. They release Eric Trump’s address in this article!!
And used the “class wars” description of Eric Trump’s “posh residence” to further stoke resentment among the unwashed leftwing masses.
Shame on you, SeeBS.
... at his posh Manhattan residence
Some liberals in the comments at ABC News article blaming Trump and saying he set it up as himself as a publicity stunt. Seriously.
I’m surprised it took so long. Who dunnit? We will never know. Even if it had a Jeb Bush return address and his finger prints this would be an unsolvable crime.
He’s got that Clint Eastwood look!!
Trump has all the right enemies. Screen all the mail for everyone close in.
Do the punks feel lucky?
What a great way to end the day with a good laugh. LOL
That is my new FB banner.
If you go back and watch the video of trump’s rally where he was attacked, you can see where there were several suspicious ppl in the crowd. The attacker was looking at one of them as if waiting on a “go” sign.
One of the suspicious things I (and some others) noticed was a guy holding up a cloth sign right in front of trump with the words, “...coming for your children” on it. It had Hillary’s witch pic on it, but still... It was the methodical way he held it up that got my attention, Holding it very still and making sure the cloth fabric was spread out evenly. And he held it up right before the attack.
Also, immediately after the attack another guy to the left (right of trump) held up his Trump sign and angrily tore it in half. Up to that point, he hadn’t held it up at all.
Then there was that first video posted on YouTube where the recorder panned his camera left to catch the guy right before jumping the fence.
Now, after this attack, I’ve noticed the SS has a designated guy taking video of the crowd at every event. I’m glad they’re on top of it.
The class war rhetoric is despicable, however if he is on the board of directors for any of his father’s companies (which is a given) or owns any corporations of his own (very likely), his address is public knowledge.
I had a difficult time finding some board members for my ministry because of that.
