An 18-year-old guard stays behind bars after presumably forging a mass capturing alert at Lollapalooza so she can leave job early, district attorneys claim.
It was quickly prior to 3 p.m. Friday when Janya B. Williams sent out a message by means of her TextNow number to a witness’ mobile phone which reviewed:
” Mass capturing at 4pm place Lollapalooza. We have150 targets,” according to district attorneys throughout Williams’ bond hearing Sunday.
The witness instantly informed her managers, triggering a chain of signals to Chicago cops as well as FBI Joint Counterterrorism Job Pressure.
When the witness, that was a staffer overseeing a protection group, returned to her message regarding 4:15 p.m., Williams informed the witness her sibling informed her she saw a message regarding a mass capturing danger on Facebook, district attorneys stated.
After the witness informed Williams to send out a display shot of the Facebook danger, Williams presumably developed a fake Facebook web page under the name “Ben Scott,” created a message that stated, “Large capturing at Lollapalooza Give Park 6 p.m.,” as well as broke a display shot of it, sending it to the witness’ cell, district attorneys stated.
That was when the witness sent out that display shot to her manager, however private investigators quickly found out the Apple iCloud account as well as IP address of the TextNow number, both of which came from Williams, district attorneys stated.
When Williams was discovered as well as offered the cops command facility for examining, she informed cops she sent out the message as well as developed the phony message “since she wished to leave job early,” district attorneys stated.
Williams, of the city’s Lawndale community, was billed with making an incorrect terrorism danger, which is a felony as well as on Sunday, Chef Area Court Mary Marubio purchased her kept in lieu of $50,000 bond. Williams, that stayed captive since Wednesday mid-day, schedules back in court on Monday.
