Armed teenager with Columbine "infatuation" found dead near Denver

Authorities are searching for an armed woman in connection with alleged threats that led to lockouts at Columbine High School and almost 20 other Colorado schools, officials said Tuesday.

According to multiple reports, Sol Pais, the woman who allegedly had "expressed an infatuation" with the 1999 Columbine High School massacre, was found dead Wednesday morning near the base of Colorado's Mt. Evans after a manhunt.

The Jefferson County Sherriff's Office today confirmed an 18-year-old woman named Sol Pais travelled to Colorado and made threats that sparked the lockdown. Police were instructed to detain her for a mental health evaluation. Some say they just want to pay their respects, but others claim they are in love with the shooters - or sometimes that they have been reincarnated with the shooters' souls.

The FBI has said Sol Pais is "armed and dangerous".

In Pais' hometown of Surfside, Florida, Police Chief Julio Yero asked that the family be given "privacy and a little time to grieve".

Officials didn't provide further details about the threats or say where she was from.

The threat is not isolated to one school or individual, police said. Pais had last been seen in the foothills of Denver on the night of April 16.

Assange, the Mail tells us, also " had the run " of the embassy and " bagged " himself a nice bedroom. Pressed over the veracity of the allegations, Ms Robinson said: "That's not true".

"Because of her procurement of a weapon immediately upon arriving here, we consider her to be a credible threat certainly to the community and potentially to schools", said FBI Denver Special Agent in Charge Dean Phillips. "She is armed and considered unsafe", said Mike Taplin with the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office, CBS Denver reported. They said she is described as 5-foot-5 inches tall, with brown hair.

The FBI alerted Jefferson County authorities to the threat around 11 a.m., the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office said.

All classes and extracurricular activities for about a half-million students were canceled as a precaution, though sheriff's spokesman Mike Taplin said the young woman's threats were general and not specific to any school. The threats apparently were not specific to any school, but authorities were concerned because the Federal Bureau of Investigation believes she is "infatuated with (the) Columbine school shooting".

State Rep. Patrick Neville, the Republican House minority leader, was a 15-year-old sophomore at Columbine High at the time of the shooting and now has three school-age daughters.

"We are now investigating what appears to be a credible threat possibly involving the schools", Jefferson County Sheriff's department said earlier in a tweet. The two shooters took their lives in the school's library.
