Armed Teen Who Threatened Schools Ahead of Columbine Found Dead: Report
Several schools in the Denver area were closed Wednesday as authorities searched for 18-year-old Sol Pais.
A massive manhunt has ended after a teen who police say made threats to Columbine High School ahead of the 20th anniversary of the school shooting was found dead, according to reports.
She was reportedly discovered near the base of Mt. Evans, according to the Denver Channel.
Several schools in the Denver area were closed Wednesday as authorities searched for 18-year-old Sol Pais, who authorities said was “infatuated” with the Columbine massacre.
Pais made her way to Colorado from Miami on Monday night and bought a shotgun and ammunition, according to the FBI. She was considered armed and extremely dangerous, authorities said.
The teen had last been seen alive in the west Denver foothills, according to reports.
Schools in the area were put on lockdown for three hours Tuesday afternoon after the threats were reportedly made. Other schools released their students and canceled activities or moved them inside, according to CBS News.
Columbine High School let out at regular time but canceled after-school activities for students.
"We always have heightened awareness close to high-profile anniversaries like this," Patricia Billinger, a spokeswoman for the Colorado Department of Public Safety, said.
A man who identified himself as Pais’ father had asked the teen to “come home" before her body was found.
“It’s like a bad dream. We don’t know. We don’t have any idea,” the man told CBS Miami.
