Investigators Teen Obsessed With Columbine Found Dead

Jefferson County Sheriff Jeff Shrader said this week's potential threat of violence adds more pain to a community still grieving.

Concern mounted after investigators learned that upon her arrival at Denver's global airport from Miami on Monday, Pais went to a store where she bought a pump-action shotgun and some ammunition.

The 18 year old woman who was considered "armed and extremely dangerous" by law enforcement has been found dead after an extensive manhunt in Colorado.

"As a precaution, Denver police officers have been directed to remain attentive around schools", Marika Putnam, spokeswoman for the Denver Police Department, said Wednesday morning.

On Tuesday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation launched a massive manhunt for 18-year-old Sol Pais, who, authorities said, had an "infatuation" with the Columbine high school massacre, the 20th anniversary of which occurs this week. Pais was "infatuated" with the Columbine school shooting, authorities said.

The arrest comes days before the 20th anniversary of the deadly shooting at Columbine High School.

At least 19 school districts are closed.

.

"The shadow of Columbine looms pretty large", said John McDonald, executive director of school safety for Jefferson County.

Other school districts shut down for the day include the Douglas County School District, Aurora Public Schools and Cherry Creek Schools.

"We couldn't take the risk of having one student or staff member injured - so superintendents unanimously decided late last night to close school", Anderson wrote to parents Wednesday morning.

Adam Charni, a Miami Beach High School senior, said Pais dressed in black and kept mostly to herself.

The FBI has said that Sol Pais, flew to Colorado on Monday night and bought a pump-action shotgun and ammunition. "The threats appear limited to schools in Colorado".

Gonzalez-Diego declined to give more details about Pais.

Authorities said they believe she had been using a ride-sharing service in Colorado, and they don't believe she ever made it onto school property.

As it got underway, Pais was supposed to be attending class at Miami Beach High School, where she's enrolled in honors classes as a senior, according to school officials.

Jefferson County Public Schools, which includes Columbine High School in Littleton, were among nearly 20 school districts closed Wednesday as authorities searched for Pais. Burnstine says he once held the door open for Pais, and "she said thank you".

The ABC Station in Miami reported that a man who said he was her father told news crews that he last saw his daughter Sunday and the situation has "been a nightmare" since then. "I think she's gonna be OK".

The incident came just days before the 20th anniversary of the Columbine massacre, which happened when two teenagers went on a killing spree at Columbine High School, killing 12 students and 1 teacher before they committed suicide.
