Nikolas Cruz Bought Guns to Battle 'Demons' in His Head

Cruz said he heard voices.

Cruz told investigators he was depressed about everything, including his mother passing away. Curcio said. "How does that work?"

Additionally, Tracy Clark, a spokeswoman for Runcie, said, "It does not appear that Cruz completed the recommended three-day assignment/placement", but she added that she did not want to "speculate" as to why he did not. He said the voice told him to buy the AR-15 used in the attack.

He told Curcio that he had to fight the voice from taking over, that it was always bad.

"What do you think Mom would think right now if she was", Zachary Cruz asked his brother, leaving the sentence unfinished.

The report, compiled by a consultant hired by the Broward school district, also showed that Cruz had exhibited troubling behavior as early as age three, when he was kicked out of pre-K program, having shown aggressive behavior, and had been classified as needing special education because of apparent developmental delays.

Cruz told the detective that he planned to shoot people at a park the week before, according to the transcript.

Several times when the detective left the room, Cruz spoke to himself saying, "Kill me".

It happened after the detective left to get him some cold water. Just f--ing kill me.

Cruz was alone in the room at the time but the recorder was still going.

"Burn, kill, destroy what?" the detective asked. "I just want to die now". "I want to die". He paid $200 for each of the magazines he used, and ordered them online, according to the transcript.

He also told them he tried to take his own life, saying he "tried killing myself with Ibuprofen two months ago" and also said he tried to kill himself with alcohol 2 years ago.

"You're not acting like yourself". I know I made it seem like when we were growing up that I hated you. but truth is. Like, come on. Why did you do this? "I take full responsibility", Myrick said at the board meeting.

It was revealed in May that Broward officials were confirming that Cruz had been assigned to the PROMISE program in middle school after both Runcie and the Broward Sheriff's Office said he did not attend the program "while in high school".

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. That means the defendant's vantage point of the shooting itself remains unknown. Video of the confession will be released Tuesday.
