Update: Joplin Student Arrested For Text Message Hoax

Following up on the story we brought to you earlier this week regarding a text message hoax that kept Joplin students on edge, we have learned that a juvenile student has been arrested for making those threats.

The blog Crime Scene has followed up on this story and reports that a juvenile has been arrested. The investigation also continues in to whether or not anyone else was involved in the text message hoax.

One has to wonder if this text message wasn't inspired by the earlier rumors about gang shootings at Walmart, which also turned out to not be true. There is a lot of information we will likely never know because of the suspect's classification as a juvenile.
