Epilogue: Three men charged

I said I wouldn't post again, but I would be remiss if I didn't include the ending of the story. Raise your hand if you predicted it would be a 64 year old Scottish separatist. This is the mind-bending stuff intelligence analysts must deal with on a daily basis, especially in this 21st century cyber-crime era. From the PPG:

A 64-year-old, wheelchair-using Scottish man from Dublin, who already has served a prison sentence for emailing hoax bomb threats, was indicted Wednesday as the person responsible for emailing a series of 40 false bomb threats targeting the University of Pittsburgh during the spring semester.

Hats off to domestic and international law enforcement agencies for bringing closure to the case. I had my doubts the person would ever be found. It's like that crazy, stalker ex-girlfriend that you heard is finally getting married. You can stop looking over your shoulder and breath a sigh of relief. Although you were never totally fearful, you get the one thing you always needed: resolution.
