Suspect exclaimed 'kill me' after Florida school shooting

Suspected Parkland school shooter Nikolas Cruz blamed the violent massacre on the voice of a demon who told him to buy an AR-15 and take an Uber to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, where Cruz allegedly killed 17 people and injured 17 more.

However, metal detectors that students and parents were counting on will not have been installed. He claimed he had never seen one, though school, state and court records show he had been counselled by mental health specialists for years.

A judge entered a not-guilty plea on his behalf during his arraignment in March.

Cruz admitted to taking drugs.

When asked by Curcio early in the interview if he wanted water, the suspect said: "I don't deserve it". To me, it's me and then my bad side.

Read the redacted version of what Cruz said during a videotaped interview below. At another point when Curcio left the room, he repeats over and over: "Why didn't he kill me?"

Another time, Cruz said, "I want to die". "At the end you are nothing but worthless, dude". "You're all going to die".

An independent review commissioned by the Broward County School Board found that Cruz has been aggressive since he was young. While authorities had previously said Cruz acknowledged that "he was the gunman who entered the school campus. and began shooting students", the newly-released transcript shows for the first time much of what he told police the day of the February 14 massacre and sheds light on his state of mind after the bloodshed. He siad the voices told him to "Burn". Cruz answered, "Burn. Kill". Cruz told Curcio he had been scared to tell others about the voice.

The Belgian global has attracted interest from Spanish giants Real Madrid and has expressed his desire to join the Los Blancos. He said, "Pogba is a great player, who is on another team and we are always very respectful of the players on other teams".

He acknowledged building a fire pit because the voice told him to and said he killed wild birds.

The detective pushed Cruz on whether or not the voice really existed, "You could have stopped the demon by getting a prescription for marijuana. You could have stopped the demon anytime you want", Curcio reportedly said. You could have stopped the demon by getting a prescription for Xanax.

Runcie, who brought the PROMISE program, a social justice program aimed at eliminating the "school-to-prison pipeline", to Broward County, said the consultant's report largely reveals that the district's "systems are appropriate" and that his officials were intent on providing "an education and ongoing, changing behavioral care for Cruz throughout his time in the Broward school system".

When he was left alone again in the interview room, Cruz told himself: "I want to die". Why didn't he kill me?

Indeed, the school district did release a report that was heavily redacted, but all of the blacked-out text in the report became visible once it was copied and pasted into a Word document.

He also told them he tried to take his own life, saying he "tried killing myself with Ibuprofen two months ago" and also said he tried to kill himself with alcohol 2 years ago.

Cruz, a former Stoneman Douglas student, roamed the hallways of the 1200 building on campus February 14 for several minutes, targeting victims huddled in classrooms on the first and second floors, killing 14 students and three school employees in one of the deadliest mass shootings in modern USA history.
