Pastor posts bond for UK student arrested for social media threat
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A pastor offered to post bond for the University of Kentucky student arrested for making threats on social media.
Haily Loriane Duvall was arrested Thursday morning. Police say the 19-year-old from Glasgow, Kentucky, admitted to making threats against the White Hall Classroom Building.
A judge set her bond at $1,000, and her pastor offered to post the money. But he told WKYT that he had a lot of questions and wants to talk to her face-to-face.
Duvall was interviewed by WKYT News in Lexington on Wednesday night before she was named as a suspect. She told a reporter that she reported the threats to police, after seeing them on social media. Investigators say Duvall continued to send them updates via email.
But it didn't take long for police and the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force to track her down by pinging her phone to find out where the threats originated.
Duvall is charged with terroristic threatening and filing a false police report.
The threats prompted an alert on the UK campus on Wednesday night and an increase in security around White Hall. All Thursday classes are on a normal schedule.
Duvall could face additional federal charges. She is scheduled to be back in court on November 26.
In a release, UK Police Chief Joe Monroe said campus police never believed the threats to be credible, but he said making such a threat is a serious offense.
At the time of her arrest, Duvall was a sophomore at UK and a part-time employee at UK Healthcare.
