SNIPPET: "A Sun Express Boeing 737-800, registration TC-SUO performing flight XQ-973 from Stuttgart (Germany) to Izmir (Turkey) with 62 passengers and 6 crew, was enroute overhead Skopje (Macedonia), when a crew member found a note in one of the lavatories saying "Today we will die, boom"."
SNIPPET: "Greek police detained a man carrying a marker pen of the same color as the note written on the lavatory's mirror, but later permitted him to continue the journey.
After the airplane arrived in Izmir, Turkish police detained the man again and interviewed him. The man was released without charges after the interview."

Bump. could have been left from a previous flight. Hopefully, it is nothing.
It was a hoax, but — article snippet: “Greek police detained a man carrying a marker pen of the same color as the note written on the lavatory’s mirror...”
Of course, if it was a black marker...almost any businessman worth his salt could be carrying that in his briefcase (just a thought).
WCG....more for your list.
You’re welcome RR.
Thanks for the update.
A pilot from Sun Express gave me one of their small enamel badges ... I wear it on my flight jacket .... the pilot was an FO on a B737 ....
You’re welcome MamaDearest.
Let’s hope so.
I don’t know what evidence (if any) they collected.
