HARTFORD -- 19-year-old Cory Miller is the Hartford Union High School student police found in the woods with two rifles, after he made threats on social media. Two female students alerted school authorities about threatening messages they received from Miller Tuesday morning, which ended up canceling school early.
A criminal complaint shows a series of Twitter messages Miller sent to a student.
"im not trying to be mean but im gonna pray ur car starts today and it blows up, and ur in it and u burn alive."
Miller attached a picture of a handgun to his tweet.
"For the real friends out there don't go to school tomorrow."
The above tweet had an explosion icon and small handgun icon next to it.
Miller sent another student a message on Snapchat that said he wanted her to die.
He posted a picture of himself that said, "Hunting Day." When the student asked what he meant by the post Miller responded by saying, "Cause I'm getting ready for tomorrow."
Miller said "I'm on xanax and opes." He posted a picture that said "I want to go to the woods to shoot mysf."
Later that day, Miller tried to apologize to one of the students and said, "I just want to make this fighting on twitter stop."
The complaint shows Miller admitted to posting many of the threats. He said he was fighting with the student because she's always picking on him. Miller told police he was being stupid and didn't mean anything by the messages.
Police found pellet guns, a rifle and hollow point ammunition in Miller's truck.
