Six female students at Tennessee's Sequatchie High School have been charged with conspiracy to commit homicide. But who they were conspiring to kill isn't exactly clear. School officials say they found a list of 300 names, mostly fellow students and faculty members but also including Tom Cruise, Oprah Winfrey and the Energizer Bunny. And they posted some things on Myspace that included the word kill. Authorities put the two together and charged the girls. "I am not saying we thwarted a shooting incident or an act of violence," said Dunlap Police Chief Clint Huth. "On the other hand, had this gone unchecked, down the road it could have grown into something a whole lot more serious than a list of names."
