Elementary school evacuated after “Middle Eastern” woman shows up to “take the kids to heaven”

This is CRAZY.

From News9 (emphasis in bold is mine)

STILLWATER, Oklahoma – Westwood Elementary School in Stillwater, Oklahoma, was evacuated Wednesday morning after a woman showed up at the school and made threatening comments.
According to Stillwater Superintendent, the woman, who has not been identified, does not have children at this school. Stillwater police held a news conference and said the woman is of Middle Eastern descent. She reportedly showed up at the school and said she was there to, “Take the kids to heaven.” The school was immediately evacuated.

Police said the woman was carrying a purse with wire hanging out. She did not have a weapon. The Oklahoma Highway Patrol bomb squad responded to the scene and examined the purse. They did not find anything suspicious in the purse.

She had no children at the school. She shows up with a purse that had an exposed wire…that had no purpose, apparently.

It’s possible this is a case of mental illness, as the article goes on to state. I’m also of the opinion that it’s also possible this was some sort of dry run for something worse. Probably not, but you never know these days.
