Woman Charged with Threats Against BYU, President Bateman
A threatening letter promising to "damage or destroy a building or real property by means of fire and explosives," was received by the secretary to BYU President, Merrill J. Bateman, on August 6, according to Brigham Young University Police Lt. Greg Barber. Concerned with the dangerous nature of the letter, BYU police immediately informed the FBI, leading to the indictment of Lavanya Paul by a federal grand jury on charges of trying to extort $1 million from BYU President, Merrill J. Bateman. The Wednesday, August 15th indictment against Lavanya Paul, 28, a native of India, charged her with extortion and "willfully threatening to kill, injure and intimate" President Bateman.
