Parkland Shooting Suspect Says He Heard Voices

Cruz faces the death penalty if convicted of the attack that left 17 people dead and 17 others wounded.

Cruz has been charged with 17 counts of first-degree murder and 17 counts of attempted first-degree murder. His public defenders have said that they would accept a deal from prosecutors to send Cruz to jail for life.

Students are evacuated by police from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., on Wednesday, Feb. 14, 2018, after a shooter opened fire on the campus.

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.

Curcio asked Cruz if he was hearing the voice during their interview. He siad the voices told him to "Burn".

"It's still fresh to me because every single day, I identify as a MSD student and the trauma that I went through", Ho-Shing said, "so there's days where I'm still crying".

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. On June 12, 2016 a mass shooting took place at Pulse nightclub killing 49 people and wounding 53 in one of the worst mass shootings in USA history.

On Monday, the Broward County School Board asked a judge to hold the Sun Sentinel, along with two of its reporters, in contempt of court, in response to their story on the report about Cruz.

"The voice is in here", Cruz said, pointing to his head.

Then, after almost three hours of questioning: "Why didn't he kill me?" "Just (expletive) kill me". Curcio said everyone has a good and bad side.


"A monster?" the confessed killer said. "For him killing 17 people - 17 of my friends, 17 of my classmates and teachers - it's not fair", she said. Or maybe it was three.

"What do you think Mom would think right now if she was", Zachary Cruz asked his brother, leaving the sentence unfinished. "I know you probably felt like you had nobody but I care about you".

Cruz told Curcio he wanted to join the Army to be a Ranger but he failed the written exam "because I was stupid".

Cruz wonders aloud at one point of the audio, although it is unclear to whom he is referring. He claims they intensified after his mother's death in November.

"It didn't bounce all over hell and creation?"

Cruz replied: 'Yes, it did'. Cruz said, "To feel safe". Cruz told Curcio he had been scared to tell others about the voice.

Zachary Cruz apologised for mistreating his older brother in the past and repeatedly told him he loved him.

"You're not acting like yourself". Like, come on. Why did you do this?

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".

The suspect responded: "I'm sorry, dude".
