Va Tech Imitation Threat

A Southern Illinois University student is accused of threatening a "murderous rampage" similar to the Virginia Tech shootings that left 32 people and the gunman dead in April.

Madison County prosecutors charged Olutosin Oduwole on Tuesday with attempting to make a terrorist threat. That's a felony punishable by up to 15 years in prison.

He's jailed on Wednesday on $1 million bond.

According to court documents, the New Jersey man wrote a note demanding payment to a Pay-Pal account and threatened violence if the account didn't reach $50,000 within seven days.

Authorities say the note was found in the 22-year-old's car Friday and a loaded gun was found in his apartment.
