Wannabe serial killer who killed classmate dies in Florida prison

A wannabe serial killer who was in middle school when he fatally slit the throat of a 14-year-old classmate has died behind bars in Florida, online records show.

Michael Hernandez was a 31-year-old inmate at Columbia Correctional Institute outside Jacksonville when he collapsed and died Thursday — possibly from a drug overdose, according to the Florida Department of Corrections and local CBS-TV affiliate WFOR.

An official cause of death for Hernandez has yet to be given, although no foul play is suspected, authorities said.

But he was seen on video collapsing, and two sources familiar with the incident said it appears Hernandez may have died from drugs, the outlet said.

Hernandez was 14 when he lured bespectacled, violin-playing fellow student Jaime Gough into a bathroom stall at their suburban Miami middle school in 2004 with the promise of showing him something.

Hernandez — who was obsessed with serial killers and had devised a list of people he wanted to murder — then stabbed Gough 40 times and cut his throat.

An official cause of death for Hernandez has yet to be given, although no foul play is suspected, authorities said.

The kiddie fiend went to class afterward — with the bloody knife in his backpack.

A teacher noticed blood on the student and called the cops.

Hernandez tried using an insanity defense at trial, but the jury balked, finding him guilty and ordering him to serve life behind bars.

His victim’s dad, Jorge Gough, said he was “shocked’’ to learn of Hernandez’s death.

“I was not expecting this at all,” Gough told the Miami Herald.
