Brookfield police said they are still investigating a series of threatening and vulgar telephone calls to local school students that occurred in October.
The calls were reported to school officials, who notified police on Oct. 13.
The school district instituted a ban on backpacks due to the threats, but lifted it after Police Chief Dan Faustino said that two suspects had been identified and he was confident in the safety of the school.
Detective Aaron Kasiewicz said March 26 that the Trumbull County Prosecutor’s Office has not been comfortable that the information obtained is sufficient, so no charges have been filed.
promoRecords of a phone that police believe was used showed no numbers from the time the calls were made. “In my opinion, from everything I’m seeing, they used some sort of a calling app to do it,” Kasiewicz said.
Calls made over the internet are not logged in the same way as with a cellphone, he said.
Police have taken the next step and subpoenaed records from internet-service provider Spectrum, but have not gotten a response, Kasiewicz said. The detective said he would contact Spectrum to check on the subpoena.
“There’s still an active subpoena out there,” he said. “There’s still a request for information. It shouldn’t take them that long to get it back, but it’s not uncommon for it to take a couple of months.”
