Her comments were reported to the authorities, though it’s unclear who reported her.

Perez confessed to sending the messages when interviewed by detectives, but she insisted they were empty threats, according to the report.

During the original video chat, Perez also bizarrely said she planned to send a Facebook friend request to Zachary Cruz “because she likes ‘violent things,” according to the arrest report.

Zachary Cruz is the brother of 20-year-old Nikolas Cruz — the confessed mass murderer who in 2018 slaughtered 17 people at Florida’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
