More details have emerged in the threat investigation at the John F. Kennedy Middle School in Waltham.
Among the new details – one student created what he or she called a “kill list” and titled it “People who make fun of me,” according to a Dec. 9 letter from the school’s principal, Jack Cawley.
Also, the names of three students were on the list, according to the letter, copies of which were provided to Waltham Patch.
Waltham schools officials, along with the police, are investigating the incident, which began on Dec. 6 when students were dismissed during an early release day.
