Officials get to the bottom of threatening emails sent to Marianna Middle School parent

News

Officials with the Jackson County School Board said they have finally gotten to the bottom of the threatening emails sent to a Marianna Middle School parent two weeks ago.

Just before the districts spring break, a parent of two students reported two emails she received that claimed her students would be harmed while at school.

The districts police department and other local law enforcement agencies began investigating and working to locate and IP address of where the emails were coming from.

Superintendent, Larry Moore, said the parent received a third email Monday.

Through investigative efforts, the identity of the person responsible for the emails was located, and confessed during an interview.

Moore said he’s relieved that the individual causing such a disruption has been located.

“We can’t have that kind of fear,” said Larry Moore, superintendent. “The school needs to be the safest place for children to be and we’re going to try our very best to maintain that.”

Moore said he plans to recommend disciplinary action and file criminal charges against the individual.
