College of William & Mary freshman in jail after allegedly making two online death threats
A College of William & Mary freshman is in jail after he allegedly made two online death threats.
The student’s name is Benjamin Zavelsky, and the college says he’s facing two charges of threat of death or bodily injury, and another two misdemeanor harassment by computer charges.
School spokesperson Suzanne Seurattan told NewsChannel 3 Zavelsky posted death threats against two other students on the website collegiateacb.com. When the students saw the post, they contacted the police, who then notified the college.
Seurattan also says police contacted the website about the threats. The posts have since been removed from collegiateavcb.com.
Police say the investigation is still ongoing.
