In 1996, a man tried to kill Bjork, she responded by sending his family flowers

In 1996, a man by the name of Ricardo Lopez tried to kill Björk.

He was a pest control officer from Florida, and he was obsessed with Björk. Lopez mailed a sulfuric acid bomb—meant to kill or permanently disfigure its opener—disguised as a book to Björk's London home. Luckily, the Scotland Yard intercepted the bomb before it reached Björk.

It was later revealed that Ricardo Lopez had been filming a video diary over a period of eight months, a total of 20 hours worth of footage. He addressed everything from how he made his bomb, to Björk's relationship with Goldie, and the footage captured Lopez's deteriorating mental state as well as his ultimate suicide - Lopez would shoot himself in the mouth after mailing Björk the sulfuric bomb while Björk's "I Remember You" played in the background.

Though Björk found this incident to be emotionally straining, she expressed sympathy for Ricardo Lopez's family, sending flowers to them. This incident would also mark the end of her time in London and the start of more personal music.

Here's something from his haunting video diary.
