A bomb that went off in a bathroom in a Evanston Target store wasn't some aggressive protest about the controversial transgender policy about restrooms. A middle-aged woman was taken into custody in connection with the explosion and preliminary investigation reveals it might have been due to a chemical reaction involved in cooking drugs that went wrong.
A 44-year-old, who has been described by the police as a person of interest, has been taken into custody in connection with the bomb explosion that took place in the women's bathroom at a Target store in Evanston, Illinois. While many were quick to link the rather puny explosion to the highly controversial change that Target brought about its bathroom policy, the facts of the case couldn't be further apart.
According to Patch, the explosion that occurred inside the woman's restroom was most likely the result of a person attempting to produce a synthetic drug to get high, but instead got an explosion, perhaps due to incorrect ingredients or improper procedure. The local police have arrested a woman, identified as Heidi Schmidt, in connection with the explosion.
