If you believe the threats are serious enough, then you should open a channel of communications with yahoo and the FBI. Yahoo will most likely track down ip address(es) of the user in question and provide it to the authorities in accordance with the law.

us to find out as much as we can pertaining to the person sending it.

Of course, we are not YAHOO so we cannot determine anything about the mail
other than the content.

How can we find out who sent this?
