Death Threat Found on Hotchkiss H.S. Bathroom wall

An investigation is underway into a written death threat found at Hotchkiss high school. The incident began unfolding last Friday when a student noticed the hand written threat on a stall in a men's bathroom at the school. It's been nearly a week since the threat written in a bathroom stall was discovered by a student, who told a teacher then the school as it should immediately notified the hotchkiss Town Marshal. Even though it's likely the threat was written as a joke or out of anger and not meant to be serious, school officials and law enforcement are treating this as no laughing matter. The school district has sent letters home to parents notifying them of what's happened and are urging anyone who might have information about the person who wrote the threats to come forward. The Hotchkiss Marshal says the Colorado Bureau of Investigation is now assisting in finding the person responsible for writing the threat. The CBI was at the school this week to collect a hand writing sample.
