MONROE - A 14-year-old Monroe girl confessed Wednesday to sending an email threatening to blow up the school earlier this week. Monroe Police Chief Fred Kelley said the girl is a student of the Monroe school district and had "hacked" another student's email by using that student's email password to send the threat Sunday evening. The perpetrator told police she sent the threat in the hopes that it would close school on Monday so she would not have to attend a specific class, Kelley said.
