A Maryland father reading his 18 year old daughters diary, discovers her initial plans to blow up her high school, and heroically calls authorities to alert them of his daughters well planned agenda.
According to ABC, on March 23 in Thurmont, Maryland the father to Nichole Cevario, 18, spoke with Catocin High School officials about a “potential threat of violence towards the school.”
While searching Cevario’s home authorities discovered a shotgun with ammunition, bomb-making materials to include pipes with end capes, shrapnel, fireworks, magnesium tape, and fuse material.” The Frederick County Sheriff’s Office announced, Cevario was “immediately removed from the classroom and turned over to investigators.”
Upon searching the Cevario residence authorities discovered a journal with the school and date in April that “clearly planned out a mass shooting”, Frederick County Sheriff Charles Jenkins said in a news conference.
The Sheriff’s Office added, Cevario had been planning “for some time and had been compiling intelligence on behavior activities of the school, noting emergency procedures associated with drills conducted by the school staff and obtaining intelligence on the School Resource Deputy”.
Apparently, authorities learned Cevario was willing to act single handedly, while admitting no weapons were spotted on school property, and the weapons were also legal.
The Sheriff’s Office revealed Cevario was battling with mental health issues after learning she tried to harm herself, but will still be given an arrest warrant when she’s released from the hospital.
The arrest warrant includes possession of explosive material with intent to create a destructive device and possession of incendiary material with the intent to create a destructive device.
Superintendent of Frederick County Public Schools Dr. Terry Alban, thanked the parents for their cooperation and “courageous” act for speaking up.
“Whenever you see or hear anything that raises concern, you need to trust us to come to us so that we can do the right thing and handle it like we did in this case. Those relationships, that trust, that’s what enables the policies and the procedures that we have put in place to keep our school safe work. And they did.”
