Hampden Mother to Stay in Jail 

A 46-year-old mother from Hampden has been

jailed pending the outcome of federal charges that she mailed bomb

threats that shut down three Bangor-area schools for a day in


Jodi Lynn Holmes allegedly told investigators that she sent the

letters to Hampden Academy, John Bapst Memorial High School and

Bangor Christian Schools during what was &quot:a bad mental health

week&quot: and that her goal was to terrorize the recipients.

a two-month mental health evaluation. She also agreed to be held in

the Penobscot County Jail pending the outcome of her case.
