Police in Mountain Home are looking for the public's help in their investigation of a "Whisper" incident that set off a minor firestorm on social media. Mountain Home law enforcement said an anonymous message was posted Nov. 19 on the social media site called "Whisper," indicating that the writer heard two people talking on a Mountain Home school bus about "shooting up the school." Investigators say they're talking with the social media site in an attempt to identify the person that posted the message.
Meanwhile, the message has reportedly triggered a series of social media rumors that have "created a huge safety concern by students and parents," according to a Mountain Home Police Department spokeswoman. "Currently, there is a large police presence in and around all the schools."
Investigators are hoping that the public can help them with any information regarding the message or the identity of the person responsible for the post. The public is urged to contact police at 208-587-2101 with information.
