By Mellany Armstrong 9:47am, October 7, 2013 - Updated 3:33pm, October 7, 2013An investigation spans at least two states following the posting of threatening messages on a website at Concord High School.
WDEL's Mellany Armstrong reports.
Brandywine School District Superintendent Mark Holodick says a student alerted faculty that the messages were posted on a social educational website, and within 24 hours police identified an IP address in a southern state as the source.
"While we do have a person identified in another state, we believe the investigation needs to not only continue but maybe be a bit broader, as some other individuals, or maybe the same person, posted these messages," he said.
Holodick says they believe a student posted the messages because a log-in is needed for the website.
"(They) weren't necessarily threatening but certainly offensive toward a number of different people and groups, so we want to continue that investigation and hold those responsible fully accountable," he said.
As many as two-thirds of the students stayed home because of the threat. Holodick says they will decide later Monday whether to continue backpack checks and state police presence Tuesday.
