Sol Pais, the 18-year-old woman suspected of making threats towards Denver-area schools including Columbine High School, has been captured, police tell CBS Denver. The teen from Florida was captured Wednesday near the Echo Lake Lodge at the base of Mount Evans in Clear Creek County, the station reports.
She is in custody less than 24 hours after she was accused of making “credible threats” against Colorado high schools.
CBS Denver was the first to report on the morning of April 17 that Pais, 18, had been arrested at the base of Mount Evans. The station said that authorities had responded to the scene after hearing reports of a woman running naked with a gun in the woods. The CBS report went on to say that investigators and a SWAT Team could be seen close to Echo Lake Campground in the Arapaho National Forest on the morning of April 16. The area is around 60 miles west of Denver.
On April 16, the FBI and the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office named Pais as the suspect in a series of “credible threats” surrounding area-schools, including Columbine High School. Heavy.com earlier reported that online journal entries believed to be from Pais wrote of an obsession with the 1999 Columbine High School massacre. Pais’ arrest came just days before the 20th anniversary of the massacre that was perpetrated by Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris. In total, 13 people died during the attack.
