    This fake account with no picture was set up on facebook and the pmed me calling me a 'stupid baldy virgin' and throwing around insults like that. They also messaged my 15 year old daughter calling her a 'w hore clown' and 'mentally challenged'. I send this person a voice message saying 'wait until i get my hands on you'.

    If I take these comments this person said to the police will they do anything?

    I'd just block and report them to Facebook. If they start to harass you or your family, after blocking them, then I'd go to the police.

    EDIT: Don't reply to them either. Replying to them will only fuel them to annoy you.

    If I go to the police right now though do you think they will do anything?

    If I'm honest, they'll probably just say the same thing I said.

    The name they are posting under is clearly a fake. Will they track down the i.p. address for me?

    Are you upset by being called baldy?

    I mean, the other adjectives seem appropriate.

    technically isn’t OP the only one who may have broken the law by sending a verbal threat?

    Do you mean 1990? There was no act of this name in 1997.

    You could, they wont do anything, I've heard sharper insults out of 10 year olds before. Maybe a lesson in using the block feature on facebook and learning how to deal with a couple insults are neccesary if it only takes a few words for you to treaten pysical abuse.
