  • Bombshell report Parkland killer asked for help months before massacre but officials ignored him

The detective asked if the supposed voice had given specific instructions related to the massacre, including the fact that Cruz took an Uber to the high school.

A group of police officers stand guard in front of the side entrance of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School after a shooting in Parkland, Fla., Feb. 14, 2018. At one point, when Curcio left the room, the suspect - apparently alone - is recorded saying, "I want to die".

Cruz spoke to the detective about what he called a demon in his head, according to the transcript of the interview.

Cruz said he tried to kill himself with an over-the-counter pain reliever after his mom died and years earlier had tried to drink himself to death because he was lonely.

The transcript also noted that Cruz also had talked to himself aloud about his own desire to die.

Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students spent the summer relaxing, working and some participated in internships. The voice, Cruz told Curcio, gave him instructions: "Burn".

The reason for Anthony Martial 's absence from Manchester United's clash with Bayern Munich has been revealed after much speculation.

Cruz said the voice was talking to him while he was there in the interrogation room, telling him to kill himself. "The voice is, is in me".

Detective asked if he was expelled "I just stopped going and then transferred me". "It's a voice. The voice is in here and then it's me, it's just regular me, just trying to be a good person". Cruz told Curcio he had been scared to tell others about the voice.

"I think you like the demon", the detective continued. You could have stopped the demon by getting a prescription for Xanax. "You didn't want to stop the demon".

Both factors, in part, led Cruz to miss out on special services, such as counseling, in the year leading up to the shooting massacre on February 14.

Video of this post-shooting interview is scheduled to be released Tuesday. He paid $200 for each of the magazines he used, and ordered them online, according to the transcript. Cruz says two to three weeks before the Parkland shooting, he walked onto the Stoneman Douglas campus with an AR-15 in a duffel bag, planning to shoot people at a park, the report says.

"I ... I don't know", he said. Like, why? Like, we've. this is not who you are. "I love you with all my heart".
