Facebook profiles obtained by law enforcement through warrants in the case of a 16-year-old boy accused of shooting classmates at a California high school in January revealed a story about a bullied student who kills his former tormentors as an adult.

The Bakersfield Californian reports that investigators found the story written by 16-year-old Bryan Oliver that describes the killing of several people by torture and other morbid means.

The Californian reported that Detective Kavin Brewer followed leads that led him to the website allpoetry.com where he found a story posted in June 2012 called “Phycopath” by “bryoliver96.”

Here’s more about the story:

Peers torment the abused main character, “Demian,” pretending to befriend him to gain his trust only to use “that to destroy him.”

“In school [Demian] couldn’t make any friends at all no matter how much he tried. It soon seamed (sic) that everyone that looked at him became determined to make his life hell,” the story said.

At graduation in the story, bullies douse Demian with a bucket of goat’s blood. Later, after a tour of duty in Iraq and stint in law school, Demian kills the student who tipped the bucket by drowning the bully in the blood of his family members. Demian continues to murder his persecutors in ways that echo their past harassment, including dropping one couple into a pit lined with giant thumbtacks.

Oliver has been charged as an adult in a shooting at Taft Union High School in January that left two people injured.

He pleaded not guilty to two counts of premeditated attempted murder and three counts of assault with a firearm

The parents of Bowe Cleveland, who was wounded in the shooting, also filed a claim against the high school, the Californian reported, saying the school should have known Oliver was a risk.

Friends of Oliver say he was teased by his classmates for his red hair and social awkwardness.
