Six girls at a rural high school were charged with homicide conspiracy after their principal found a list of 300 names and officials discovered online postings suggesting they kill people, authorities said Thursday.

School officials said the list, discovered in a classroom trash can, mostly named students and faculty members but also included Tom Cruise, Oprah Winfrey and the Energizer Bunny.

Sequatchie County High School Principal Tommy Layne said that he initially considered it a joke, but that authorities then found the ninth-graders' online MySpace pages and postings that included the word "kill."



"In general terms, it was like, 'Let's kill these people,' " Dunlap Police Chief Clint Huth said. He declined to provide the specific wording on the posting, which has been removed.


"I am not saying we thwarted a shooting incident or an act of violence," Huth said. "On the other hand, had this gone unchecked, down the road it could have grown into something a whole lot more serious than a list of names."

There was no evidence that the girls had weapons or that an attack had been imminent, Huth said.

see... least where i'm from, kids had some sort of reason to try and kill each other (i.e. drug deals, robberies, or general beef). These rich kids are just nuts.

I pretty much figured it was a big joke when I read

'Energizer Bunny.'

I'm with you.

This is more than likey absolutely nothing but a bunch of kids screwing around and talking crap.

20 years ago nothing would have even been thought of it but unfortunately, in today's world, everything needs to be looked at as a real threat.

That's a real interesting thought process.
I figured EVERYONE that actually crosses that line to killing are at least a little off.

Also these kids usually do have a "general beef".
That's why they go off the deep end.
Don't get your justification for this.
