According to the 18th Judicial District Attorney's office, Whitworth is facing murder charges following an investigation into "threats involving schools in Colorado Springs Academy District 20."
The Elbert County Sheriff's Office (ECSO) arrested and formally charged Whitworth with criminal attempt to commit murder in the first degree (two counts), criminal mischief, menacing, and interference with staff, faculty, or students of educational institutions.
Whitworth attended school in Colorado Springs Academy District 20 between 2014 and 2016, a spokesperson from the district told local media. He attended both in-person and at the district's Homeschool Academy.
The confused young man's story made headlines after ECSO dispatchers responded to a disturbance in incorporated Elbert County on March 31, 2023, at 7:18 p.m. Dispatch reported that:
• Sister just made a violent approach to Reporting Party (RP)
• Sister threatened to shoot up a school
• Sister has ever anger issues
• Sister made comments day before yesterday referencing school shooting
All such mentions of "sister" are referring to Whitworth, who self-identifies as a "female" due to LGBT trans programming.
(Related: Whitworth's story is eerily similar to that of Nashville trans shooter Audrey Hale.)
Upon gaining entry into the home, police officers discovered someone inside who was "very upset and punched holes inside the walls." That person was "Lilly," who uses she and her pronouns rather than the he and him pronouns that match his biological sex.
While trying to interview Whitworth, officers noted that he "appeared to be very drowsy and could not stay awake," nodding off as officers asked him if he planned to shoot up a school. Whitworth did respond in the affirmative to the questioning, suggesting that he was, in fact, planning to shoot up Timberview Middle School in District 20 for "no specific reason."
For a month or two, Whitworth had been planning the ambush, complete with a layout of the school, active firearm preparation, and the creation of a manifesto. Investigators found this manifesto, as well as a dry-erase board with floor plans of the school and a list of names in a notebook.
Officers also claim to have found a copy of "The Communist Manifesto" inside Whitworth's home, along with writings inside about "ways I want to die." As for the manifesto, it reportedly contained details such as:
• A list of firearms and how to 3D print them
• Detailed lists of individual names to be slaughtered
• Information detailing how to create improvised explosive devices
• The finalization of locations, including Timberview Middle School, Prairie Hills Elementary School, and Pine Creek High School
Another notebook contained a shrine, of sorts, to other past mass shooters, serial killers, politicians, and entertainers, along with commentary on each of them. Below is a list of names as reported in the affidavit:
• Eric and Dylan: Losers
• Adam Lanza: To [sic] smart
• Isreal [sic] Keyes: Degenerate
• Lauren Southern: Pathetic
• Vaush: Terrorist
• Donald J. Trump: Con-mam [sic]
• Bad cops: Useless garbage
• Stockholm, Name: Liam K.
According to reports, a preliminary hearing for Whitworth is scheduled for May 5, 2023. His bond is currently set at $75,000.
"Unfortunately, when it's a criminal case, there's very little we can say. It doesn't belong to us; it belongs to the DA's office. But what we can do is share the information that we're allowed to do and reassure our families that we're doing all of the right things," said ASD20 Chief Communication Officer Allison Cortez about these developments.
