Knoxville Police say they found the person responsible for "The Purge" rumor we previously reported on.

The post advertised a 24-hour period in Knoxville where all crime is legal. It's based on a movie.

Police said the rumors are untrue, and they did find the boy who made the original post.

KPD said the boy won't face any charges, but police did speak with him and his parents about the seriousness of a post like that.

The boy's Facebook page has since been taken down.
