Update: On June 16, 2019, Koeberle Bull was given a Citizen Hero Award by the Burlington County Prosecutor’s Office during their annual PROCOPS (Prosecutor’s Recognition of Citizens or Public Servants) awards banquet for thwarting a series of planned school shootings in Kentucky. Kentucky State Police Trooper Josh Satterly was flown to New Jersey by the prosecutor’s office to join Bull during the ceremony.
In the fall of 2018, New Jersey single mom Koeberle Bull received a threatening message on Facebook from a racist white man in Kentucky with a gun in his profile pic. The man had seen a pic of Koeberle’s three African-American children (Olivia, Sophia and Isaiah). He told her they should be hung. He also accused Bull of betraying her race (white) by raising African-American children.
Koeberle was terrified and immediately called local police in New Jersey. They took a report but did nothing else. She then shared information about the man on Facebook and was able to identify him as Dylan Jarrell of Lawrenceburg, Kentucky. Koeberle called the Lawrenceburg Police and was patched through to Officer Josh Satterly with the Kentucky State Police. Koeberle said he was “amazing” and took her case “like he was investigating a threat on his own children, and that’s what I needed.” Koeberle lost her husband to a heart attack a few years ago.
After speaking to Koeberle, Officer Satterly went to the home of Dylan Jarrell, 20, to question him about the threat. He and his fellow officers found Jarrell pulling out of his driveway with a firearm, 200 rounds of ammunition, a Kevlar vest, a 100-round high-capacity magazine, and “a detailed plan of attack” on area schools. They arrested him on the spot and charged him with two counts of second-degree terroristic threatening and one count of harassing communication.
