CNN reports that an armed teenager whose threats forced the closure of almost 20 school districts in Colorado has been found dead.
According to a law enforcement official, Sol Pais, an 18-year-old high school senior from Florida, was found dead Wednesday morning, April 17, 2019.
Authorities said that Pais was “infatuated” with Columbine and made threats as she traveled to Colorado this week — the same week as the 20th anniversary of the Columbine High School massacre which left 13 people dead. In a tweet by the FBI’s Denver office on Wednesday, it said “There is no longer a threat to the community.
“Additional details are not immediately available”.
According to Dean Phillips, special agent in charge of the Denver FBI office, Pais made “credible” — but not specific — threats after traveling from Miami to Denver on Monday night, April 15, 2019. The FBI said that:
After Pais arrived in Colorado, she immediately went to a store and bought a pump-action shotgun and ammunition. Phillips further said that:
Pais was considered a threat to the community and schools, but there was no information on any specific threat to a particular place.
