Monroe Hall

Monroe Hall houses 37.5 percent of Loyola classrooms. Evelyn Hubbard, biology junior, was arrested on suspicion of sending emails threatening to blow up Monroe Hall.

Evelyn Huber complaint

The FBI arrested a Loyola Student on charges of calling in a bomb threat rather than taking her exam.


Evelyn Hubbard, biology junior, was arrested by the FBI Dec. 9 on a criminal complaint charge after police say she sent two threatening emails to the Loyola University Police Department, according to police reports.

On Nov. 17, LUPD received the first email at 9 a.m. calling for an immediate evacuation of Monroe Hall by 9:33 a.m. According to police reports, in the first message, Hubbard threatens to kill five professors with a "9x19 mm mamba pistol with five bullets," she said in the email.


At 9:27 a.m., police reports say Hubbard sent the second email. "YOU ARE REALLY TRYING MY PATIENCE! I AM ON THE VERGE OF BLOWING UP THAT BITCH AND YOU'LL BE RENOVATING FROM THE FOUNDATION," she said in the email. 

The report also said that Hubbard "stated she did not intend to injure or kill anyone and thought the messages were more of a joke."

Hubbard was released from jail Dec. 9 on a $10,000 bond.

The larger question is WHY the Loyola police received two email threats that morning that threatened to kill 5 professors and blow up a building and yet the campus emergency notification system was not enacted and the building was not evacuated. Studies show that students who make such threats publicly, whether in print, via email or other internet sources, are more likely to follow through on those threats. Obviously, they could not have known that morning that the threat was bogus. Why didn't they take steps to protect the campus community from a repeated threat. Do your parents pay $40,000 a year in tuition to send you to a good school, only to have campus officials ignore such threats? Did we learn NOTHING from the Virginia Tech shootings in 2007? You err on the side of caution and evacuate the building. And why is this obviously disturbed person still a student at Loyola? If the threatened to blow up the school over a test in November, what is the logic behind allowing them to remain on campus with the same professors they threatened to kill during finals? This is negligent. I hope the Maroon will be more diligent in investigating this story.

Ha, Ha! Hilarious stuff. Perhaps she has a career on the comedy circuit since she obviously has such a refined sense of humor.

Obviously this young "lady" missed the "critical thinking" part of her Loyola education.
