'Kill Note' Found On High School Bathroom Door

Posted: Updated:
CORNING, Ohio -

Students and teachers were listed on a "kill note" that was found at a high school in Perry County Friday.

The hand-written kill list was found in the boy's restroom of Miller High School in Corning Friday afternoon.

The superintendent of Southern Local Schools said there were five names on the list, including two teachers and three students.

Superintendent Greg Holbert said the teachers on the list were immediately contacted, along with the parents of the students whose lives were threatened.

"The kids were scared. My kids were concerned, wondering who'd be doing it. They know all the kids and teachers whose names was on the list," said Patricia Taylor, a parent.

Taylor has children in the 7th and 12th grades and said that while the school was on lockdown, teachers met to try to figure out who wrote the list on the restroom door.

Besides the school resource officer, police officers were called to investigate. An automated call was made to parents, alerting them of the situation.

School officials said it's the first time a death threat of this kind has been found at the school.

The Perry County Sheriff's Office said they're taking the threat seriously.

Anyone with information on the hit list is asked to call the Perry County Sheriff's Office.
