Woman Charged For Facebook Threat, Forcing Lockdown

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A 39-year-old Minneapolis woman is accused posting a threat on Facebook referencing Eden Valley-Watkins High School back in April, according to charges filed in Meeker County District Court on Thursday.

Sandra Kay Dockendorf was charged Tuesday with one count of disorderly conduct and faces up to 90 days in prison and a $1,000 fine if convicted.

According to a criminal complaint, the Meeker County Sheriff’s Office received a report on the morning of April 20 of a threat at Eden Valley-Wakins High School. At about 10:43 p.m. the night before, the owner of the Facebook page for the school posted a message that stated “I see dead people.”

The Facebook page was named “Eden Valley Watkins” and featured a picture of the school. The post forced the school to be put on lockdown for the day. Several members of the public who saw the post became alarmed and called the school out of concern, according to the complaint.

The school was also put on lockdown for extra precautionary measures, including the fact that April 20 was the date of the deadly shootings at Columbine High School. An incident had also recently occurred at Rocori Middle School where a juvenile brought a gun into the school.

Authorities learned that Dockendorf was the owner and creator of the Facebook page and has children at the school. She told police she posted the message.

    Something is going on out there – hazing/sexual misconduct issue last September with the baseball team that went undefeated/state champs. When we played them in baseball the team never shut up for a minute during a double header and the parents supported this behavior. They turned sportsman like chatter to disgraceful heckling. Chanting all at once after a moment of silence and right when the pitcher was releasing the ball. That whole community needs to look in the mirror and get help. I will not do business in either of those towns without an apology. I mentioned it to some of their parents/fans and they defended it. Our fans were stunned by their pathetic behavior. I think the championship needs to be taken away! I will say that they were completely different this year and I would say they acted normal again.
