CHEROKEE COUNTY, Ga. (FOX 5 Atlanta) - Two teenage students accused of an elaborate plot to kill fellow students and teachers at their high school admitted their guilt to a judge Friday afternoon in a Cherokee County courtroom.
Family and friends were in the courtroom when two former Etowah High School students entered guilty pleas in a case that has shocked this community. Deputies arrested the now 19-year-old Alfred Dupree and 18-year-old Victoria Mccurley in October of 2017.
FOX 5 News learned Friday, it was a relative of Dupree who tipped off authorities to the plot that included a “kill list” with names of students and one teacher, journals detailing the attack, a list of a map for a plan of attack. In fact, in court, McCurley admitted telling investigators their goal was to kill more people than the October 21 mass shooting in Las Vegas.
McCauley, at one point, said the writings in the journals and even the kill list was more for entertainment than anything else.
