Trans teen arrested by Colorado police, had plans to shoot up three schools

Police in Colorado have arrested a 19-year-old teenager who had detailed plans to attack three schools, preventing what could have been another mass casualty event carried out by a disturbed transgender individual.

William Whitworth, who according to prosecutors identifies as Lilly, was taken into custody mere days after the tragic murders in Nashville where transgender Audrey Hale slaughtered three young children and three adults at a Christian elementary school.

Whitworth, who is referred to by female pronouns in his arrest documents, was arrested on March 31 when the suspect’s sister called the police after he was reportedly behaving violently and making threats and references to school shootings, with one person at the residence saying that he had “punched holes in a wall.”

The Colorado Gazette reported that Elbert County Sheriff’s Office deputies “found Whitworth lying in bed, drunk, in a room piled with trash that had several holes in the wall, according to the affidavit.”

A spokesperson for the 18th Judicial District Attorney’s Office told the outlet that “Whitworth is in the process of transitioning to female.”

More disturbingly, “Investigators found instructions on how to build homemade bombs and a whiteboard with the floor plan to Timberview Middle School in the bedroom of a former student accused of planning a mass shooting at the Colorado Springs school,” according to Whitworth’s arrest records that were obtained by the outlet.

Also discovered was a manifesto containing the names of mass shooters and political figures, with Columbine killers Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold described as “losers” and Sandy Hook mass murderer Adam Lanza praised as being “smart,” former President Donald J. Trump was derisively referred to as a “con man” in the documents.

Whitworth also had in his possession a copy of “The Communist Manifesto,” the infamous treatise by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels that has inspired generations of left-wing radicals, including those in modern-day America.

An affidavit states that authorities “also found a notebook with instructions on how to make firearms using a 3D printer and how to make homemade explosives. Whitworth admitted to watching a YouTube video on how to build a detonator,” according to the Colorado Gazette.

When Whitworth was asked why he wanted to shoot up a school, he told authorities “No specific reason,” while also saying that he was  “about a third of the way from doing it (committing a mass shooting),” according to the affidavit.

Also on the list of “targets” in the documentation recovered from one of the suspect’s notebooks were Colorado Springs schools, Prairie Hills Elementary and Pine Creek High School, as well as a “detailed” list of people who were “to be killed,” the affidavit states.

‘There’s a page in my manifesto and there’s a bunch of mass killers,” Whitworth said when asked why he was knowledgeable about other school shootings.

Whitworth has been charged with multiple crimes including, criminal attempt to commit murder in the first degree (two counts), criminal mischief, menacing and interference with staff, faculty, or students of educational institutions with a preliminary hearing scheduled for May 5.
