Colorado schools reopen as FBI examines teen suspect's pastPosted: Updated:
Authorities want to ensure a Florida teenager obsessed with the Columbine school shooting was acting alone as dozens of Denver-area schools plan to reopen following a region-wide hunt for the young woman.
According to the FBI, the body of Sol Pais was discovered in the mountains outside Denver with what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound Wednesday, about 24 hours after Columbine and other schools locked their doors in response to fears she intended to carry out her own attack.

Authorities say Pais never threatened a specific school, but made troubling remarks to others about her "infatuation" with the 1999 shootings.
The FBI also says Pais purchased a shotgun Monday, immediately after arriving in Colorado.
The anniversary of the Columbine attack is Saturday.
