A Madison County Grand Jury has indicted a Godfrey teen on terror-related charges. The indictments are a more formal way of reinforcing the previously-filed charges of Material Support for Terrorism and Making a Terrorist Threat.
Investigators believe Keaun Cook of the 1,500 block of Sir Galahad Lane had been in contact with individuals outside of the United States. Madison County State's Attorney Tom Gibbons previously told The Big Z Cook is accused of wanting to cause a "mass casualty event" in Madison County. Potential targets and local law enforcement agencies were contacted immediately to provide heightened security and ensure that no one is at risk. Cook's fitness for trial is currently being evaluated.
