Student Arrested for E-mail Death Threats

PEARL CITY, OAHU (Ben Caxton) — A student from Pearl City has been arrested for sending email death threats to his professors. 26-year-old Neill Tumulac was arrested by Federal agents around 6:00 AM Wednesday at a home in Pearl City Peninsula. He is accused of sending more than 140 emails, described as “bizarre and nonsensical” to two community college instructors in which he threatened to kill them while enrolled in their classes. Some of the emails also hinted obtaining a gun or chemicals to create explosives and attacking the school. Tumulac has a long history with the police in Hawai`i, and in his last city of residence, Las Vegas. Court papers filed say he was last arrested there by police in his apartment brandishing a sword while slashing the walls of the unit. He faces up to five years in prison on the latest charges if convicted.
