In a continuing effort to determine who was responsible for the written threat made at Cypress Lake Middle School last week, detectives returned to the school today to speak with more students. Late this afternoon, they obtained a confession from student Isabella De La Rosa (DOB 3/2/06). De La Rosa was charged with one felony count of a written threat to do bodily harm or mass shooting, as defined by Florida State Statute. She is currently being booked at the Juvenile Assessment Center (JAC). Her mugshot should be available later this evening on the Lee County Sheriff’s Office’s website.
“The act of making a threat of something as serious as a school shooting is no joking matter, and as this young lady is finding out today, it is, in fact, a serious crime,” said Trish Routte, Crime Stoppers Coordinator. “We hope that parents will seize this opportunity to have a discussion with their children about the repercussions of these bad choices and the impacts that will have long lasting effects on their lives.”
