WASECA, Minn. - Recordings released on Tuesday reveal new evidence on a Waseca teenager's alleged plot to murder his family and bomb his school.

The audio includes a police interview with 17-year-old John LaDue. In it he laid out his plan for a massacre.

"I didn't have plans of living past that day," LaDue told police.

LaDue said he was determined to bring several others -- even his family -- with him.

"I wanted to get taken down by the SWAT just to show I wasn't a wimp."

LaDue appears calm as he is apparently honest, detailing step-by-step his plans to set off bombs in the hallways inside his high school in Waseca where he was a junior.

"Then my plans were to enter and throw Molotov cocktails and pipe bombs and destroy everyone and then when SWAT comes I would destroy myself."

The case against the teen is laid out in hundreds of pages of documents released on Tuesday afternoon. In addition there were videos showing disturbing behavior of him testing bombs that he made from materials that were later found in a storage locker. It was the same locker he was walking to when someone saw him acting suspicious and called 911.

"I was not bullied at all," he told police. "I don't think I've ever been bullied in my life. I have good parents, I live in a good town. I think I'm just really mentally ill. And no one's noticed and I've been trying to hide it."

Yet it's those good parents and his older sister he claims he wanted to kill.

"They did nothing wrong. I just want as many victims as possible," LaDue added.

He said he also planned to shoot students with guns he stole from his father who he claims had no idea what was going on.

"He thinks I'm just a good kid because I can lie pretty well and persuade him that I'm just ordinary."

Only a few times in the initial interview do you hear LaDue's voice waver, including the moment he describes why he wanted to die.

"I really wanted to get out of this place," he said. The detective asked, "Why is this place so bad?"

"I don't know. I don't really care for it," LaDue said.

A psychological exam is pending.
