Authorities have arrested a University of Washington student who boasted online that he was the "next Elliot Rodger," referring to the man who recently killed six University of California at Santa Barbara students, KIRO News reported. The Washington student, Keshav Bhide, a senior, reportedly said online that Rodger's rage against women was justified and that he would kill only women. Bhide is being held on charges of cyberstalking and felony harassment. Some University of Washington sororities have received threats referencing the California murders, but authorities did not indicate whether these threats had been linked to Bhide.
