Louisiana State University police arrested an LSU online student who is accused of using her student email account to send threatening emails.

Melaynie Melancon Williams, 39, of 517 Spartan Drive in Slidell, faces a cyberstalking charge after allegedly spending two weeks sending inappropriate and threatening emails to the same person, according to an affidavit.

Williams allegedly started sending the emails to the victim after she learned she did not meet the academic requirements necessary to be accepted into LSU’s Graduate School.

Emails sent from Williams’ LSU email address include the use of explicit language to demand that the victim leave Williams alone.

One portion of a message to the victim reads, “I PRAY TO GOD YOU UNDERSTAND THE BIBLE BECAUSE YOUR [expletive] IS GOING TO MEET JESUS!”

The same message also includes a part that reads, “I SEE YOUR PERVERTED [expletive] FOR WHAT YOUR ARE AND I DON’T NEED YOU. APPROACH ME IN THIS COMPLEX AGAIN AND I WILL BLOW YOUR [expletive] HEAD OFF!!!”
