Custodian arrested for involvement in Clark County school threat

Amanda Joy Miller, 38 of Kahoka, Missouri

On the morning of October 25, 2018, a terroristic threat was made towards the Clark County Middle School.

The threat "I'm going to kill everyone at this school today" was discovered in the girls restroom in a bathroom stall and resulted in all Clark County schools being cancelled.

Amanda Joy Miller, 38 of Kahoka, MO, was arrested Thursday morning following a thorough investigation led by the Clark County Sheriff’s Office.

Miller was arrested at 9:55 a.m. and booked into the Clark County Detention Center.

Miller is being taken into custody on a 24-hour hold. She has not been formally charged yet.

Miller was listed on the school district's website as one of two middle school custodians.

Superintendent Ritchie Kracht says the note was written directly on the bathroom stall. He said the message appeared to be written in pencil, but it had been erased before it was reported to district officials.

Kracht says Miller had taken a photo of the note with her cell phone and sent it to administrators.

Clark County Sheriff Shawn Webster told KHQA's sister station KTVO the prosecutor is reviewing the case and plans to file a formal charge within 24 hours.

The Clark County R-1 School District posted the following message regarding the investigation on its Facebook page on Wednesday afternoon:
