Death threat via email

I often post email from viewers in my blog. Most of the time it's people trying to scam others. I'd bet this is the case here too. This one happens to come with the added bonus of a death threat.
Anyone else received something like this?

The craziest part comes after "Kadiri" tells me he's been paid $1,000,000 to kill me. In the second paragraph, he goes on to say I do not need to be afraid of him. WHAT?!

While this email is odd, part of me does worry it might cause someone to loose sleep.

I just reached out to the FBI to see if agents can tell me where these types of emails generally come from. They have a Cyber Squad with agents who are experts in this type of thing. I'll let you know.
