Charges against a Taylorville man who allegedly made a threat to Memorial School were dropped earlier this week. Christian County State’s Attorney Mike Havera says further police investigation showed that it was not possible for the defendant Todd Daugherty to have made the threats.
Havera says more messages were sent following Daugherty’s arrest, making it impossible for him to be the perpetrator.
Havera says when threats like this are made, local law enforcement will as quickly as they can if they have probable cause.
Local and state authorities, along with the FBI are continuing the investigation into the source of the threats, and Havera says his office will continue to take online threats very seriously.
