LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Lafayette Police are investigating a non-specific threat list found in a book at Lafayette Jefferson High School.
Police responded to the school Monday morning after a list with students' first names was found inside a used classroom textbook.
Lieutenant Scott Galloway said language was used on the letter that was threatening toward students. Specific language of the letter is not being released so LPD can use the details for their investigation. Police believe the letter is recent.
The list was turned over to the school resource officer. Police will continue to investigate.
Superintendent Les Huddle said they decided to not notify parents because nothing credible was found in the threat. However he said they will keep parents up-to-date as the situation continues to unfold.
"Should we find a student or group of students that are responsible for saying things that are inappropriate, posting things that are inappropriate, at minimum discipline or consequences from the Lafayette School Corporation, as far as the police department they'll decide if it's an offense that is arrestable," said Huddle.
