According to the Daily Beast, the death threats against the black #MIZZOU students were made by 19-year-old Hunter Park, who was arrested and held without bond.

Park is a student at the Missouri University of Science and Technology, according to an online profile, and studies mathematics and science.

The student used “Yik Yak”, a popular social media platform amongst college students to spread the threats.




The Yik Yak messages are supposed to be anonymous, but apparently Park forgot nothing can go un-found on the internet. The app’s founder condemned it’s use for posting terroristic threats, stating that it’s against the terms and conditions.

A Boone County Judge denied his original $4,500 bail, but Park has not been formally charged.
