Pais was reportedly found dead at the base of Mt. Evans in Clear Creek County, two days after she traveled to Denver from Miami and purchased a gun and ammunition. Authorities said at a press conference Wednesday that they believe Pais was alone and did not have any help in any potential plan to commit mass violence.
Pais had reportedly made threats online and indicated to friends and family that she may be plotting to carry out a violent act. Authorities have not said if there were any specific targets, Pais was reportedly “infatuated” with the 1999 Columbine school shooting.
JeffCo Sheriff says the FBI confirmed Sol Pais is dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. He says the focus is on how can we keep our kids safe in school and get kids back to school in a safe manner.
