Two Florida tweens hid in their middle school bathroom Tuesday, waiting for their unassuming classmates to enter. Their plan? To overpower the smaller students, murder them with the butcher knives they snuck onto the premises, and drink their blood from a goblet they’d brought.
The 11- and 12-year-old girls, who both claimed to worship Satan, planned to kill 15 to 25 of their peers and hide the bodies in one of the bathroom stalls until they could consume the flesh. They also planned to leave body parts outside the school, then wanted to kill themselves to become “worse sinners” and go to hell to be with Satan.

However, the girls’ plan was foiled after they allegedly warned a classmate that “something bad was going to happen,” according to Buzzfeed. The student reported the warning to a teacher, who passed it on to the principal; when the two students didn’t show up to class, they searched the school and discovered the girls in the bathroom with their weapons and goblet.
Detectives also uncovered a hand-drawn map of the school in one of the girls’ home, emblazoned with the phrase “go to kill bathroom.” Another note read, “Today is health lesson thank Satan we are doing this in bit.”

The girls allegedly spent the weekend before the planned attack watching horror movies.
After the pair were brought to the principal’s office, they were arrested and charged with conspiracy to commit murder, possession of a weapon on school property, carrying a concealed weapon, and disruption of a school function.
