CRYSTAL SPRINGS, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Bond has been set for a woman accused of calling in a bomb threat to a Crystal Springs nursing home.

Janet Bishop, 63, of Raymond made her initial appearance Wednesday, and she was given a $25,000 bond

Authorities say Bishop has admitted to calling in the false threat.

Forty-four elderly and bedridden patients were rushed out of the Copiah Living Center Tuesday afternoon. They were loaded on buses and taken to other facilities and hospitals in the area.

Bomb sniffing dogs did not find any type of explosive device.

Investigators said one patient died during Tuesday's evacuation. An autopsy is being performed to determine if the patient's death was related to being moved out. Detectives say if the death is determined to be related, charges could be upgraded to murder.

Detectives believe they know the motive behind the threat.

"She said she didn't feel like her mother was being taken care of like she should have been and she would do anything it takes to destroy the nursing home," Det. Chris Palmer said.

Detectives say Bishop's mother died in the nursing home and she was disgruntled about her mother's care. We are told she repeatedly called the facility about the care and death of her mother this past year.
