Dr. Royce Money, Abilene Christian University president addressed local and regional media in a press conference at 10:30 a.m. His comments are as follows.

"We have spoken to the FBI this morning, and the lab does not yet have results on the suspicious letter received yesterday at Abilene Christian University.

Our FBI contact will remain in touch with the lab this morning to check on results, and they will call us as soon as they have an answer.

The Administration Building will be closed until noon. However, as soon as we receive the all-clear from the FBI, the building will be re-opened.

If results are delayed, classes may be cancelled in the Administration Building this afternoon and this evening. However, classes will definitely resume Thursday, possibly at the University Church of Christ and Hillcrest Church of Christ.

We have our daily Chapel assembly for all students at 11 a.m. this morning in Moody Coliseum, and you are welcome to attend. At that time, we will make an announcement in chapel based on what we know at the time.

I want to say a special word of thanks to all the local and federal law enforcement agencies that assisted us Tuesday evening, including the Abilene Police Department, the Abilene Fire Department and the FBI. They did an excellent job, and we are grateful for their help."

Money also addressed students, faculty and staff in Chapel reassuring them of ACU's safety.
