Harvard student charged in bomb hoax is from Mukilteo

The Associated Press

BOSTON — The attorney for a Mukilteo man accused of making a bomb threat to get out of a final exam at Harvard University says his client was under a great deal of pressure and seems remorseful.

Twenty-year-old Eldo Kim is being released on $100,000 bond Wednesday into the custody of his sister, who lives in Massachusetts, and an uncle from North Carolina. Attorneys aren’t saying where he will stay.

Under the conditions of his release, he cannot enter Harvard’s campus without prior approval of Harvard and the federal court.

Federal public defender Ian Gold says Kim was dealing with finals and the third anniversary of his father’s death.

Gold says Kim became a naturalized U.S. citizen in fifth grade and renounced his South Korean citizenship.

Under the conditions of his release, Kim cannot enter Harvard’s campus without prior approval of Harvard and the federal court.

Kim did not enter a plea during an earlier hearing Wednesday.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Boston alleges Kim sent hoax emails Monday saying shrapnel bombs would go off soon in two of four buildings on Harvard’s Cambridge, Mass., campus. The emails came minutes before he was to take a final exam in one of the buildings.

The buildings were shut down for hours before investigators determined there were no explosives.

Kim attended Kamiak High School, graduating in June 2012, Andy Muntz, a spokesman for the Mukilteo School District, said Wednesday.

While there, Kim was a National Merit Scholarship finalist and participated on the tennis and debate teams, Muntz said. His debate coach, Steven Helman, declined to comment this morning.

A cached version of Kim’s LinkedIn profile, which has been taken down, indicates that he did several internships in South Korea.

Harvard said it was saddened by the allegations against Kim but would have no further comment on the investigation.
