Creepy clowns threaten students in Missouri

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (KSHB) – Creepy clown accounts were the talk of the town Friday in St. Joseph, Missouri.

Multiple Facebook accounts set up for clowns contacted junior high students in St. Joseph, and even made a threat to the school district.

13-year-old Ethan Shipps was one of those students.

“They said they were going to the high schools and they were going to kidnap the kids and kill the teachers walking to their cars and stuff,” he explained.

The district had extra police officers on its campuses, but said it didn’t find any of the threats credible.
