Mayor's son questioned in Stamford death threat probe

Graphic death threats have kept a Stamford High School student out of school, and now police are questioning Mayor Dan Malloy's son in the case.

Candace Owens, 17, says she fears for her life after getting three threatening voicemails. She claims at least two of the voices on the messages are two teenage boys in her school.

One of the messages said, ?You better not be there cause you may get a bullet in your back.?

Owens? family has hired an attorney. Her parents claim the school district is preventing their daughter from getting an equal education by allowing the accused boys to stay in school.

Meanwhile, Mayor Malloy says his 14-year-old son has been questioned and is cooperating with police. Authorities are continuing to investigate the threats and question other students.
