Middle school girls plan satanic mass murder

Police in Florida have disclosed that two middle school students who admitted to being behind a foiled school attack claim they're Satanists.

Bartow police searched both girls and found several knives, including a butcher's knife, Hall said.

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

In messages found on the girls' cellphones after they were arrested, they allegedly wrote that they would leave "body parts at the entrance" and then take their own lives.

Detectives searched the girls' homes and found a hand-drawn map and the message "go to kill bathroom".

"They had a strong belief in satanism and they believed the more people they killed the faster they would go to hell", Hall said.

Police say the girls wanted to drink their blood of their victims out of this goblet.

The girls, who remain locked up, were charged with "conspiracy to commit murder, possession of a weapon on school property, and disrupting a school campus".


Police say the girls were located in the very bathroom they had discussed.

"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.

Yesterday at approximately 1:30pm, the Bartow Police School Resource Officer assigned to Bartow Middle School was summoned to the Principal's office in reference to an armed juvenile complaint.

According to the police affidavit, their plan was to stake out a bathroom and wait for smaller students to enter. They planned to cut their victims' throats, cut up their bodies and eat the flesh, authorities said. That student notified a teacher and school officials notified authorities.

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

"They told us they were Satan worshippers", Hall said.

Their alleged plan was foiled when an automatic call from the school alerted one of the mothers to her daughter's absence from class. "The plan did work", he said.
