Middle school uncovers threat through Facebook
CRITTENDEN COUNTY, Ky. - A Facebook post on Wednesday night led to an investigation at Crittenden County Middle School. By Thursday, the school sent out a letter reassuring parents the situation was resolved and students were not in danger, but the rumors are still running rampant in the community.
But she added that over the weekend the same social medial site that helped led them to an investigation helped spread what she calls "an enormous amount of misinformation." She had heard rumors of everything from a hit list full of specific student names to an elaborate get-away plan.
"That is absolutely not the truth," she said. "It was not the truth during the investigation we started on Wednesday night and it's not the truth today."
