Trumpy (W/F 9-25-2003, 3520 SW 17th Place), was possibly a suspect who had written, “I have a gun in my bookbag, and I am going to kill all of you! You better run! “On one of the bathroom stalls in the girl’s restroom. School administration reviewed video footage near the restroom, which helped identify Miss Trumpy as the suspect; another student inside the restroom witnessed Miss Trumpy as the person who had written this message.
