25-year old Lindsay Kantha Souvannarath would have caused immense loss of human lives had her nefarious plan for the Valentine’s Day succeeded. Lindsay Kantha Souvannarath, an American woman and two of her online friends had hatched a conspiracy for Valentine’s Day in the year 2015.

The three had planned to use automatic guns for the slaughter of innocent people by attacking a popular Canadian mall. It would have been a suicide attack as the three had planned to kill themselves after carrying out the slaughter.

The woman who belongs to Geneva, Illinois, had apparently devised a detailed plan, along with two others to attack and kill as many shoppers as possible at the Halifax Shopping Centre in Nova Scotia.

One of the three, 22-year old Randall Steven Shepherd pleaded guilty last year to conspiracy to commit murder and was sentenced to a decade in jail. The third conspirator in the case was James Gamble, a 19-year-old friend of Shepherd.

A statement released to the media said, “Ms. Souvannarath had a pre-existing interest in school shootings and Nazism. The two quickly bonded over their shared interest in Columbine and other mass shootings…Souvannarath was interested in being his partner and was eager to participate. They planned their attack in great detail throughout January and early February of 2015,” said the statement, noting they planned details such as the time, place, weapons to be used and “whether they would taunt the victims.”

It was a well-laid out plan and firearms were ready to be used. Reports suggest that Gamble had obtained his father’s firearms that the trio planned to use. The statement went on to add, “Both carefully selected ‘death outfits’ to be worn during the shooting, which included wearing masks … A musical soundtrack was created and they agreed to post a video of the shooting on the Internet to document the massacre.”

Given their open discussion on the social media, the Canadian police got to know about it well in advance. They planned to send plain cloth officers to arrest the teenaged boy Gamble. Reports suggest that he was first reached by phone around and told the boy that he would be arrested and taken to the police station. The officer said as their five-minute conversation concluded, he heard a gunshot, then some clicking sounds on the phone. The police, when entered the teenager’s house found his lifeless body.
