Singer-songwriter Jackson Browne has become the unlikely target of a  bizarre series of accusations and death threats that have left  authorities baffled.

Rising to prominence in the 1970's through hits like 'Running on Empty'  and 'The Pretender,' Browne has largely faded from the spotlight in  recent years seemingly content in the role of classic rocker.

However, somewhere along the way, he apparently raised the ire of someone who carries a grudge against the soulful crooner.

According to police in the Indiana city of West Lafayette, a litany  of leaflets calling for the assassination of Browne were found strewn  about a neighborhood near Purdue University on Monday.

Cops investigating the case say that the fliers profanely declared that  the musician is the "head of the snake" in a vast Hollywood conspiracy  to take down President Trump and, thus, had to be eliminated.
