Brittany Henderson, 19, the former Texas State student who sent a bomb threat last week that paralyzed part of campus, used an email address that clearly identified her using her full, real name, an investigator said in court filings.
“I will blow Texas State up to small little pieces starting with the admissions office today at three central time,” Henderson allegedly wrote an university admissions counselor using the email address email@example.com at about 8:30 a.m. Oct. 18.
Texas State police closed the Admissions Building on N. Guadalupe Street and two nearby residence halls for several hours last Monday in response to the threat. Later the night of the threat and early the next morning, Henderson allegedly sent two more threatening emails, the court documents state.
In addition to the suspect volunteering her own name, Verizon also verified that the email was sent from Henderson’s home IP address in Bryan, Texas State University investigator Alexander Villalobos said in an affidavit used to obtain arrest warrants from Hays County Pct. 2 Justice of the Peace Beth Smith.
One of them reads, “You called the police now I will really blow it up first thing in the morning dumb bitch i am glad i am not a student anymore and you will not find me i am deleting my account.”
The other states, “I will not be arrested because they have no proof i did anything because i never brought the bomb on campus but i will tomorrow and they will not be able to find me because im at my house i hate texas state for life the police better not come back here to my house either 🙂 my family will not tell where i am at or whose desktop im on.”
In Hays County. Henderson is charged with three counts of making a terroristic threat, a third-degree felony, and three counts of making a false alarm, a Class A misdemeanor.
Texas A&M University police are also investigating Henderson as the suspect in a bomb threat that prompted a mass evacuation at Texas A&M on Oct. 19, the day after the Texas State scare, Brazos County Chief Deputy Sheriff Mike Wilson told the the San Marcos Mercury.Email | Print
