The man accused of sending two emails threatening a bombing that forced organizers to cancel a South By Southwest show also allegedly threatened the company Ebay.
The email address of the sender incorporated elements of the suspect’s name. Trevor Ingram, 26, is the registered account holder of the email address, according to an affidavit.
Live Nation World Wide LLC was supposed to host a concert for “The Roots and Friends” at the Fair Market Saturday but received two threatening emails minutes apart. One said “F*** u I’m gonna pant (sic) a bomb and watch everyone die,” and the other simply said “BOMB.”
Austin police officers as well as Travis County Sheriff’s Office used K-9s to search the venue on Fifth Street but did not find anything. Still, the concert’s sponsor canceled the event because of safety concerns.
On Feb. 17, police went to 7700 West Parmer Ln. after employees at the Austin Ebay office received three threats from that same email from Ingram, who was identified as a customer, according to the affidavit. “F*** you. You will die slow b****,” “I have 10k on everyone’s head in the Austin office,” and “I hope you die in a horrible car crash” were the content of the emails.
Ingram faces a third-degree terroristic threat charge, and his bond was set at $15,000. Jail records show he bonded out of custody.
