US authorities are investigating emailed death threats to the father of Bowe Bergdahl, the soldier released by the Afghan Taliban last week after five years in captivity.
Four threatening emails were being investigated, police told Reuters.
Meanwhile he is reported to have said that his captors locked him in a cage in total darkness for weeks at a time.
US opinion is divided as to whether he is a hero or a soldier who endangered his comrades by deserting his post.
On Thursday a welcoming party in the hometown of Sgt Bergdahl was cancelled.
The first of the four death threats was sent to Bob Bergdahl – Sgt Bergdahl’s father – at his home near Hailey, Idaho, the town’s police chief Jeff Gunter told Reuters.
He said that Mr Bergdahl received the first threat on Wednesday, the same day as a rally in Hailey celebrating Sgt Bergdahl’s release was cancelled amid controversy over the circumstances of his release.
Mr Gunter said that the threatening emails were now being investigated by the FBI.
The authorities are reported to be providing security to Bob Bergdahl and his wife, Jani.
The details of Sgt Bergdahl’s capture in 2009 remain unclear.
Some of the soldier’s former comrades say that he fell into Taliban hands after deserting his post in Paktika Province.
