Eastern Kentucky University classes to resume after threat

(AP) — Classes are scheduled to resume at Eastern Kentucky University after being cancelled for much of last week due to a threatening message found on campus.

Multiple media outlets report classes will be held at the university Wednesday. Last week, the university's president Michael Benson announced that classes would be cancelled for the remainder of the week due to a threat found written on the wall of a restroom on campus. The message was discovered on Oct. 4.

There were no classes Monday and Tuesday because of Fall Break.

The university has increased police patrols on campus. Police have interviewed "persons of interest," but no arrests have been made.


The university is offering a $10,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the threat.
