Buffy The Vampire Slayer star Sarah Michelle Gellar is living in fear following a string of death threats. The actress has received notes written in blood, prompting her to surround herself with bodyguards. Sarah says, "I won't feel safe until he is behind bars." She has been targeted at the home she shares with fiance Freddie Prinze JR. A police spokesman says, "The threats are being taken seriously. We're trying to discover where they are coming from. Sarah gets thousands of letters every week from fans who beg her for dates, but recently a couple contained death threats. Their author claims in the letters that Sarah has been ignoring him." Sarah's spokeswoman adds, "We don't want to talk about this - but there are some weird people out there."
