Texas A&M bomb threat suspect charged in 2nd case
Dereon Kelly, charged with a bomb threat at Texas A&M University, is now facing charges for a similar scare at Texas State University
COLLEGE STATION, Texas — A man charged with a bomb threat at Texas A&M University is now facing charges for a similar scare at Texas State University.
A complaint unsealed this week accuses 19-year-old Dereon Kelly of using the email account of his girlfriend, Brittany Henderson, to send an Oct. 18 message to a Texas State employee threatening to blow the San Marcos school "up to small pieces."
A day later, the complaint says Henderson's email was used to send a threat to Texas A&M in College Station. Both campuses were evacuated.
The complaint says authorities later found text messages Kelly sent to Henderson admitting to using her email.
Henderson's attorney tells the Bryan-College Station Eagle he expects charges against her to be dismissed.
Kelly's attorney didn't immediately return a phone message.
