New Details About Alleged Parkland Shooter Were Revealed by Accident, Says Superintendent

"I'm sorry, dude", Nikolas Cruz replied.

It was revealed in May that Broward officials were confirming that Cruz had been assigned to the PROMISE program in middle school after both Runcie and the Broward Sheriff's Office said he did not attend the program "while in high school".

Cruz described the voice as a male, about his age, and said the only person he ever told about it was his brother.

Cruz reportedly told detectives that he had at least twice tried to kill himself in the months before the school shooting, first by attempting to drink a lethal amount of alcohol, and then by overdosing on over-the-counter drugs. However, when he chose to stay at Stoneman Douglas, he was denied them. The suburban school had been transformed into a crime scene that even veteran law enforcement officials said was particularly gruesome.

Cruz's attorneys have said he would plead guilty in exchange for a sentence of life without parole.

Nikolas Cruz faces the death penalty if convicted of murder in the attack, which killed 17 people.

"This statement is just more proof of how severely damaged and broken a human being he is", Howard Finkelstein, the Broward County public defender representing the suspect, wrote in an email Monday.

"Remembering that throughout the student's school career", the report reads, "teams were acting without benefit of foresight regarding the incident that occurred in February 2018, the decisions they made were reasonable given the available information at the time".

Classes are set to begin on Wednesday, August 15.

In May, officials released video footage showing the 19-year-old suspect announcing his goal of becoming a school shooter and gloating about the infamy he would gain.

The transcript indicated Cruz was cooperative when answering Curcio's questions and so soft-spoken that the detective asked the suspect to raise his voice "unless you want me to sit in your lap". Cruz would have likely remained at Cross Creek had the district not moved him to a regular "mainstream" education setting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

Prosecutors released the partially redacted transcript after a judge ruled last month that non-confession portions should be made public.

Without directly criticizing the schools, the consultant, the Collaborative Educational Network of Tallahassee, recommended that the district reconsider how cases like Cruz's are handled.

Cruz's attorneys had wanted it suppressed, saying its disclosure could hinder his right to a fair trial.
