Woman Sentenced In ‘Flomo Klown’ Terroristic Clown Threat Case

January 20, 2018

A Flomaton woman has been sentenced in the 2016 “Flomo Klown case”.

Makayla Smith of Pecan Leaf Lane in Flomaton was sentenced to the maximum of 120 months in prison after pleading guilty to making a terroristic threat. But that sentence was then suspended and she was placed on probation for 60 months. If she violates probation, she could then be ordered to serve the full 120 month prison sentence. While on probation, Smith if forbidden to use social media.

Multiple Escambia County, AL, schools were were place on lockdown in September 2016  due to the report of possible violence from clown.

A Facebook page entitled “Flomo Klowns” that featured scary clowns with blood and other gore prompted the lockdown at Flomaton High School, Flomaton Middle School and Flomaton Elementary (all located on the same campus), Huxford Elementary north of Atmore, Escambia Academy near Atmore and a partial lockdown of Escambia County High School in Atmore.

The Flomo Klowns Facebook page said that they were from Flomaton and contained statements such as “I kill people for a living” and a Thursday post that stated “It’s going down tonight”.

At least two juveniles were also charged in the case, but information on their cases has not been released. None of the suspects had affiliation with or were attending the public school system.

    Anonymous…. have you every heard of obstruction of justice…..if you have such information on who the culprits really are then, why haven’t you revealed this information. I am sure you could remain Anonymous, you could be hunt down or traced and made an accessory. and if you know this young lady why would you let her go down for something that she did not do.

    Probation? What another travesty of justice. This woman committed a serious crime and should receive a lot of prison time.

    I know this girl it wasn’t her but I know who done it and eventually it will all come out. Kinda messed up how she had the least to even do with the page and shes in the most trouble for it but things will be set straight as soon as possible. As far as the social media thing shes already been without it since she was arrested so she can do it. People need to stop jumping to conclusions about things and get the whole story of what really happened. I know all 3 that got in the mess and I can tell you it wqs the male minor who was on the page messaging people

    Pollard McCall was also put on lock down. As a mother of 3 kids that were at McCall during this whole ordeal, I am glad that all involved will be punished. However I’m sure the probation won’t last long, 60 months of no social media! I don’t think most adults could do that these days.
