Lindenwood student gets probation for bomb threat she called in because she hadn't finished homework

ST. CHARLES COUNTY • A Lindenwood University student who phoned in a bomb threat because she didn’t do her homework got a suspended sentence Monday and was placed on five years’ probation.

Lori L. Knight, 39, of the 5000 block of Lansdowne Avenue in St. Louis, pleaded guilty earlier of making a terrorist threat.

On May 1, Knight called Lindenwood’s main switchboard from a blocked phone line and told the operator that her “brother” planned a bombing.

Knight called Lindenwood’s Westport campus two hours later and asked if classes had been canceled.

She said her “niece” had heard about bomb threats at the St. Charles campus.

Police were able to trace Knight’s phone number, and she was apprehended a few hours later.
