Middle school girls plan satanic mass murder

Middle school girls plan satanic mass murder

"The plan was to kill at least one student but were hoping to kill anywhere from 15-25 students", the affidavit said.

Her 12-year-old daughter and an 11-year-old friend made national headlines after school officials and a school resource officer appear to have thwarted their plot to kill and dismember fellow students, according to the Bartow Police Department.

Police say that notices have been sent to the parents of students at Bartow Middle School informing them of the situation.

Upon killing each victim, the report says, they meant to stack her or him in a bathroom stall and wait for the next small student to enter the bathroom.

School staff found the girls in a bathroom stall when they didn't show up for class.

"They told us they were Satan worshippers", Hall said. The investigators found a map of the school with the words "Go to kill in bathroom", written on the paper, according to Fox 13.

When the girl's mother called the school, the assistant principal found the students hiding in the bathroom.

A search performed on the girls' mobile phones revealed that the two planned to "leave body parts at the entrance" of the school, and commit suicide after the attack was finished.

The two girls are facing charges for conspiracy to commit first-degree murder among over things.

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. The girls were found with items such as butcher knives and a pizza cutter, police said.

Byrd credited staff at Bartow Middle School for following correct procedures that led to the discovery of the murder plot. They planned to cut their victims' throats, cut up their bodies and eat the flesh, authorities said.

The girls reportedly told authorities they worship Satan.

The school also says that extra law enforcement officers will be on campus this week out of an abundance of caution and to help maintain a sense of calm on campus.

Prosecutors will now decide whether the two girls will be charged as juveniles or as adults.

Polk County Schools Superintendent Jacqueline Byrd said at Wednesday's news conference that the district will be filing for expulsion of the students, and that she was not aware of the two students having any prior disciplinary problems.
