(SULTAN, WA.) -- The Snohomish County Sheriff's office is looking for the perp who made anonymous, online threats to Sultan High School on Monday evening, October 2nd.
The threats, posted to an anonymous website did not appear to be directed toward any specific students or staff members, according to a sheriff's office statement.
The threats, rude and uncalled for as well as not legal, did result in a late start (2 hours late) for classes Tuesday morning. In a note to parents, Sultan School District Superintendent Dan Chaplik wrote, "The day progressed as usual with nothing unfamiliar taking place other than the fact that our attendance was much lighter than normal. In addition, we also had a very heavy law enforcement presence on campuses and rotating throughout our district."
Sheriff's office spokesperson Shari Ireton said, "Deputies have not yet identified a suspect, but will work with detectives to investigate the source of the post."
Chaplik said the school will, "Continue to assist law enforcement in looking into all leads that are presented to us and that we generate. One way that you can continue to help is to talk with your kids about this incident; if they have any idea of who did this, then please pass that along to us or law enforcement. These situations are very difficult to navigate and it is especially difficult in that the post was made on the very evening that we were all trying to make sense of incidents that took place in Las Vegas."
Chaplik also said the district will continue to utilize every tool available to figure out who did this, "and when we find them we will take action to the maximum extent possible."
