A teenager is found guilty of stabbing and murdering, but reports suggested his violent tendencies began much earlier in life.

17-year-old Corey Johnson was arrested on March 12, 2018, for stabbing three people during a birthday party sleepover. But Johnson was already under investigation for pending federal criminal charges one week before the stabbing.

According to The Western Journal, Johnson killed 13-year-old Jovanni Sierra and seriously wounded Elaine Simon, 43, and her 13-year-old son Dane Bancroft. The source suggested that Johnson was a 'self-proclaimed ISIS sympathizer.'

Authorities have informed that Johnson admitted it was his Islamic faith that motivated him to conduct the attack. Johnson even confessed that he had read Quran before attending the sleepover so that he could have 'courage to carry out his intentions.'

It was further suggested that the authorities were unaware of the radical Islamic influences and violent tendencies of Johnson, who was already under investigation for pending federal criminal charges.

Jupiter Police of Palm Beach County School District police and FBI previously received 'intelligence gathering' regarding Johnson and there had been some investigation into his 'violent tendencies.'

It was informed that Johnson had made several anti-Semitic and anti-homosexual statements as far back as in early middle school. FBI even received reports that he had spoken about 'inappropriate places to bomb' and that he was a 'White Supremacist.'

Johnson also made violent threats to a Catholic high school about two years ago. Because of the threat of an impending attack, around 100 students were allegedly removed from the school.

Johnson's grandparents confirmed to the police that he had always been fascinated by dictators such as Adolph Hitler, Joseph Stalin, and Kim Jong Un.

However, FBI chose not to continue the investigation and press charges against Johnson. They wanted to give him a 'redirection approach' as he was only a juvenile.
