Middle school satanist planned school attack

Middle school satanist planned school attack

The two preteens, aged 11 and 12, were enrolled in sixth and seventh grade, respectively, at Bartow Middle School.

"They told us they were Satan worshipers", Bartow Police Chief Joe Hall said, CBS affiliate WKMG reported.

Ordered to empty their pockets, the 11-year-old pulled out a knife and a knife sharpener, the affidavit said, while the 12-year-old produced three knives and a pizza cutter. I believe in these protocols and we will continue to follow them.

There was already an increased police presence at the school following a tip-off from another student about a rumour to a a possible threat to students.

After first period on Tuesday, the mother of one of the suspects received a notice from the school that her daughter had not shown up to class.

Officials with Polk County Schools said extra police officers and guidance counsellors would be at the school this week.

When the police got the call from the mother, the principal organized staff and police conducted a search of the school.

A check of the girls' residences uncovered a drawing outlining the school and hallways and marking the restroom where they planned to carry out their plan, the affidavit said.

"After the students were dead, they would cut them up and eat parts of the dead flesh", the report says, adding that the girls aimed to kill between 15 and 25 students.

After investigating the girls' cell phone messages authorities reportedly learned that the two had been planning the attack for multiple days.

They were taken to the principal's office, where one girl was found to have a butcher knife and a kitchen knife.

Police said the girls also told them that they were practicing Satanists.

"When kids feel disenfranchised or they don't feel like they fit in or maybe they're in a rejected peer group because they're not doing so well with other kids, sometimes, they look to extremes to try to find a place to be included", Dr. Rice told FOX 13 News.

Detectives searching the girls' homes found a disturbing hand-drawn map including the phrase "go to kill bathroom".

The freakish plot was apparently created to ensure they would become "worse sinners", allowing them to spend eternity in hell with Satan. This is an ongoing investigation and more information will soon follow.
