Former Missouri State University Student Arrested for Making Terroristic Threats

A man is in custody for sending threatening emails to officials at Missouri State University, beginning when he was a student.

Investigators say Aaron Brown started sending messages starting in February, discussing mass shootings and other atrocities.

He was reprimanded by the university, but the messages continued.

In July of this year, officials say Brown was committed by the Greene County Probate Court for a 96-hour psychiatric hold.

After he was released, police say his behavior further worsened, which led to him being expelled in September.

More emails followed, which culminated in a set of threatening emails in November that led to the Dean of Student Office’s being closed for the safety of employees.

Brown is charged with first-degree terroristic threatening and is being held in the Greene County Jail on a $10,000 bond.
