Student says "slit all of your necks" e-mail was a prank

The threatening e-mails sent out to some Cal Poly students and faculty Tuesday morning were meant to be a Halloween prank, according to an apology letter sent to the Mustang Daily from the alleged author of the e-mails, computer engineering freshman Francisco Diaz.

Diaz, 18, wrote in the letter directed to the Mustang Daily that his intentions were to prank the person who left his/her e-mail account open at El Corral Bookstore, but that it became a "huge and scary" threat to public safety for students and faculty.

"It was an unconscious prank that became the biggest mistake of my life, which I am now repenting for causing the unthinkable panic, which was not my intention," Diaz wrote. » Article here
