2nd Threatening Note Found in ISU BathroomNORMAL, Ill. (AP) - Illinois State University says another threatening message has been found in a bathroom where a handwritten bomb threat was found last month.
The school hasn't canceled classes and police say they consider it a "low-level" threat. ISU President Timothy Flanagan posted a campus-wide message on the school's website Wednesday. He says the school takes the incident in the bathroom at Schroeder Hall seriously.
Flanagan says the school is taking steps to make sure the building is safe. Those include checking bags, sweeps with specially trained dogs and limiting access to the building through secured entrances in coming days.
ISU officials found the first message, a handwritten bomb threat, on Aug. 20.
