OGDEN -- More than a dozen Roy High School students have come forward with information about a campus bomb plot, police said Friday.
Officials decided to release the name of a juvenile suspect, Joshua Kyler Hoggan, 16, in the hopes it would generate more leads, said Roy police spokeswoman Anna Bond.
"It gives us more information," she said Friday.
Hoggan and 18-year-old Dallin Todd Morgan, also a Roy High student, have been arrested for what court documents describe as plans to commit a Columbine High School-style massacre.
Prosecutors on Friday filed a charge of possession of a weapon of mass destruction against Morgan.
Morgan was released from jail on $10,000 bail shortly after his arrest Wednesday before a formal charge was filed. Hoggan was being held Friday at the Weber Valley Detention Center. Details about charges he faces were not available because he's a juvenile.
The Roy Police Department doesn't usually name juvenile suspects, Bond said.
However, police, in consultation with the Weber County Attorney's Office, identified Hoggan to determine the seriousness of the bomb threat and a motive for the plot, Bond said.
As a result, she said, Roy High students have come forward with troubling statements they say were made by Hoggan and Morgan.
"You get people coming forward who didn't think much of it at the time, but heard something frightening."
Roy police are also looking into social networking sites and blogs associated with Morgan and Hoggan, Bond said.
Included is a blog linked from Hoggan's Google+ social media account entitled "Audaciously Profound."
The blog, which does not contain Hoggan's name, includes posts in several categories, including love, philosophy, power and revenge.
In a post earlier this month, the writer's words are forboding.
"My mind is revving, similar to that of a car's engine," the post says. "The clutch has engaged, and I'm off. On behalf of everyone I might f.... over, welcome to 100 percent. Where I'm better than everyone. Any nobody will stop me. Congratulations world. You've unleashed something upon yourself."
In a December post under the category of friendship, the writer laments being mistreated by others.
"People have treated me like a chew toy forever," says the post. "Where when they needed an emotional pick-me-up, they come over and take me out of the toy basket. Get their share of attention, and then leave me."
A November post contains an ominous warning: "I am like Hitler. I am like Kennedy. I am the world, yet I am one. I have the power to end the world. Not mine. But yours."
A probable cause affidavit filed in 2nd District Court details text messages from Hoggan about setting off a bomb at a school assembly and stealing an airplane from Ogden-Hinckley Airport as a getaway.
According to the affidavit, Hoggan told a police officer he had practiced on a flight simulator.
Hoggan also informed the officer he had made a pipe bomb before, the affidavit says.
Morgan told an officer that Hoggan made the bomb using gunpowder and rocket fuel and had bragged about blowing up a mailbox and having three guns in his house.
As part of the investigation, police recovered maps of Roy High and information about its security systems.
Search warrants were served Wednesday night at the homes of Morgan and Hoggan, but police have not released specific details about what was found.
The FBI has been asked to analyze computer evidence seized by police.
