Texas A&M bomb threat suspect charged in 2nd case

Nov 9, 2012, 9:20 PM

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) – A man charged with a bomb threat at Texas A&M University is now facing charges for a similar scare at Texas State University.

A complaint unsealed this week accuses 19-year-old Dereon Kelly of using the email account of his girlfriend, Brittany Henderson, to send an Oct. 18 message to a Texas State employee threatening to blow the San Marcos school “up to small pieces.”

A day later, the complaint says Henderson’s email was used to send a threat to Texas A&M in College Station. Both campuses were evacuated.

The complaint says authorities later found text messages Kelly sent to Henderson admitting to using her email.

Henderson’s attorney tells the Bryan-College Station Eagle (

Kelly’s attorney didn’t immediately return a phone message.
