On August 7, 1997, a complaint was made to JCSO regarding Eric Harris. Printouts of his web pages, including his log of ‘Rebel Missions' of mischief and vandalism, are included.
On March 18, 1998, another complaint was made regarding Eric's bomb-making activities, violent writings, and threat to kill a specific student. Printouts of Eric's web pages are included.
In 1998, after the Brown family notified the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office (JCSO) of Eric Harris’s webpages where he documented his bomb-making activity as well as expressed his homicidal urges, an affidavit was written requesting a search warrant to allow law enforcement to search the Harris residence. For some reason, there was no follow through and the search never occurred.
Following the attack at Columbine, the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office (JCSO) took charge of investigating the incident and accumulated approximately 27,000 pages of documents. Most of these have been released to the public and are available below, but there are some gaps in the sequence of documents. These and other materials (such as videos by Harris and Klebold) can be purchased from JCSO. Note: This massive document has been broken into several approximately 1000-page segments, each of which may be downloaded individually. Each segment is about 20 Mb.

Over two years before his school shooting, Lane was arrested for assaulting his uncle. This document consists of the police paperwork on the incident.
