    TX - Will grammar catch lipstick note fiend??

    San Antonio Express-News:

    Police investigate campus bomb threat

    SAN ANTONIO — Police are searching the University of Texas Health Science Center's dental school after a bomb threat was written in lipstick Friday afternoon on the wall of a bathroom there.

    According to a photo submitted by a reader, one of the notes said, “Keep out u will die.”
    ---
    University Police Department Chief Michael Parks said his office started getting calls around 4 p.m. from people concerned about the handwritten notes. The messages indicated there might be a bomb in a nearby stairwell.
    ---
    No arrests have been made, but it “shouldn't be too difficult” to determine the culprit based on the grammar in the notes, the police chief indicated.

    Well, glad UTSA's police guy is a forensic grammarian, I guess.

    From your link wfgodot:
    Lol An arrest is likely within the next few days or weeks, he said, adding that notes were found in two floors of the building, indicating the suspect spent enough time on the floors to be noticed by passers-by.

    They have a description now just look on all the video....

    Sentence in article edited up to provide more info though still makes little sense AS THE HANDWRITING ANALYZED IS LIPSTICK.

    No arrests have been made, but it “shouldn't be too difficult” to determine the culprit based on a lack of grammar in the notes, and handwriting analysis, the police chief indicated.
