Pa. high school mass stabbing suspect wrote about Norse apocalypse

Tuesday, June 10, 2014

PITTSBURGH (AP) - A search warrant says the 16-year-old suspect in a mass stabbing at a Pennsylvania high school wrote a document that dealt with a Norse end-of-the-world legend.

The warrant was unsealed Tuesday in the case of Alex Hribal of Murrysville.

The former Franklin Regional High School sophomore is jailed on charges he stabbed 20 fellow students and a school security guard on April 9 using two knives he brought from his kitchen.

Hribal's attorney didn't immediately return a request for comment on the warrant, which was first reported by The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. Investigators are seeking Hribal's cellphone records so they can see what websites he visited.

The warrant says Hribal wrote about "Ragnorok" - a "Norse legend about the end of the world" - and "describes his dissatisfaction with school and society."
