Nikolas Cruz Confession Tapes Aims Fake Gun at Head … 'Kill Me'
8/8/2018 2:21 PM PDT
Police interrogation video of Nikolas Cruz — the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High mass shooter — was just released … and it’s disturbing.
In the video, you see 19-year-old Cruz being interviewed by an investigator shortly after police apprehended him, and Cruz tells himself he deserves to die because he’s “nothing but worthless s**t.”
One of the most harrowing parts of the nearly 12 hours of footage shows Cruz sitting by himself and staring into the overheard camera … pointing his fingers at his head — like a handgun — and saying, “Kill me.” He also starts sobbing.
Cruz explains to the investigator that he hears voices in his head that tell him to “burn, kill, destroy” — and he blames the voices for instructing him to pick out the gun used in the Feb. 14 shooting.
Cruz has been indicted on 34 counts — 17 of premeditated murder, and 17 of attempted murder. Florida prosecutors are seeking the death penalty in his case.
