A newly released transcript from the interrogation of teenage shooter Nikolas Cruz, who murdered 17 people at a Florida school in February, revealed more details about the “demon” that Cruz said instructed him to “kill and destroy.”
Cruz, 19, who carried out the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, was questioned by Broward sheriff’s Detective John Curcio for more than 11 hours in February.
A heavily redacted transcript, which was released to media on Monday, shows Cruz mentioning a demon in his head that told him to carry out the violence.
Cruz told Curcio that the demonic voice is male, around his age, and that it first appeared after his father died 15 years ago. It got worse after his mother died of pneumonia in November 2017, just three months before the shooting.
The shooter claimed that the voice told him to “Burn. Kill. Destroy.”
When asked what he was supposed to be destroying, Cruz said, “anything.”
Once when Curcio left the room during the questioning, Cruz cursed at himself, saying that he wants to die.
“I want to die. At the end you’re nothing but worthless [expletive],” he said to himself.
“You deserve to die,” he added.
