Sheriff’s Office: Esko Bomb Threat Came From Another Continent


ESKO, Minn. — The March 17th anonymous call that claimed an explosive device was inside an Esko Public Schools classroom and caused the entire campus to evacuate came from someone who didn’t even live in North America, according to the Carlton County Sheriff’s Office.

A lieutenant tells FOX21 that the call originated from Africa, but it is unclear which country within the continent it came from.

The Sheriff’s Office got in touch with the FBI to help track down the call’s origin.

The Carlton County Sheriff’s Office adds that it doesn’t believe there are any local suspects connected to the case.
