People in Wilkinson County are still talking about problems that closed schools there last Friday.
We told you how someone hacked teacher's accounts and posted their information online.
Sheriff Richard Chatman says investigators issued a search warrant and seized a laptop from a Wilkinson County middle school student. They're still investigating how someone hacked into school accounts.
Some parents have told us they heard about bomb threats to Wilkinson County Schools even after Sheriff Richard Chatman and Superintendent Aaron Geter said there was no bomb on the school campus. The schools were dismissed early Friday as a safety precaution.
But Chatman told us about an email directed to the Wilkinson County Middle School's principal Angela Smith.
"It alluded to if certain African American students weren't removed from the school, this would happen and this would happen," says Chatman. "We still felt confidant that these were outside of the parameters of anything that we would have to deal with on a local level."
The email came from overseas, the United Kingdom, last Friday. This person came across the website where the teachers' information were posted. The tipster wrote that there was a post stating:
"If the African American students aren't removed from the school in 48 hours of school starting, they will launch a full out attack by planting bombs in your schools."
Chatman says investigators read through the website several times but could not find and verify those posts.
He also said his office has gotten three anonymous phone calls from parents saying that someone called them and listed their child's personal information including social security number and birth date, which parents provide when enrolling their children.
