Tuesday evening, Elizabeth City police announced that they arrested 18-year old Margaret White who is an Elizabeth City State University student. She is charged with cyberstalking, according to a warrant.
The warrant also shows that White sent an e-mail to the college president and eight others in which she threatened to harm math professor Frank Hendrick. The message also threatened physical damage to COA’s property.
School officials did not release specifics but they told everyone to get off campus.
Student Tim Jones understandably found his mind racing.
“My first thought was bomb threat or someone’s angry at the school,” Jones said.
Tuesday, students woke up to see an e-mail from college president Kandi Deitemeyer, informing them there’s no real threat on campus.
White is out of jail on bond and is scheduled for a hearing on October 31. Conditions of her release include the prohibition of going onto either ECSU or COA campuses without approval.
