Criminal Inquiry Continuing In SCR-I Bomb Threat Case

The investigation continues a week after the October 2 bomb threat at the Scotland County R-I High School.

The Scotland County Sheriff's Department transported evidence in the case to the Missouri State Highway Patrol crime lab in Jefferson City for testing on October 9. The material included handwriting samples and other paper-related materials believed to be connected to the crime.

Various law enforcement agencies are presently investigating the threat that was made against the district October 2. In addition the school district is conducting its own investigation.

"The citizens of this community can rest assured that this matter is being given serious attention by the school district and by law enforcement," stated Superintendent LeRoy Huff. "If school officials are able to determine who prepared the threatening letter of October 2, they will take all legally permissible actions to insure justice is served."

The district indicated the bomb threat represents a serious violation of the Board of Education's Discipline Policies and Codes of Conduct and could result in a lifetime expulsion from the district. The school encourages anyone with information regarding the case to contact the Scotland County Sheriff's Department.

"We are vitally interested in determining who made the threat and in bringing closure to the situation," Huff said. "The school district appreciates and requests the patience and understanding of the community while this matter is investigated and resolved in a fair and legally appropriate manner. School safety is, and will at all times remain, our highest priority."
