But who did it remains unclear [See updated allegations below], though UPenn said the account seems to be based out of Oklahoma. Here’s their statement from Friday afternoon.

Update – November 12, 10:31 a.m.: UPenn announced that local police have been working with the FBI and Oklahoma cops on this. According to the statement, the University of Oklahoma president reached out to say that “there is a basis for temporarily suspending one of their students as they investigate his involvement in the matter.”
