Teen who planned massacre: 'I'm really mentally ill' Published: June 25, 2014

John David LaDue readily admits he came from a good home and says he was never bullied, CNN reports, but something in him drove the 17-year-old Minnesotan toward an obsessively detailed plot -- one in which, he said, he wanted to kill his family, set off bombs at a school and then shoot students.

Transcripts of LaDue's police interviews were released Tuesday. They fill more than 140 pages.
