(CBS) HOUSTON - Dylan Quick, the 20-year-old accused of stabbing 14 fellow students at the Lone Star College Cy-Fair campus Tuesday, allegedly told investigators he had been fantasizing about cannibalism, and about cutting off people's faces and wearing them as masks, CBS affiliate KHOU reports.

The fantasies reportedly started when he was eight-years-old, according to Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia.

The new details are outlined in a search warrant served by sheriff's deputies at Quick's parents' home in northwest Harris County.

"Mr. Quick admitted he was the lone stabber at Lone Star College," the warrant states, according to KHOU. "Mr. Quick stated that last week he researched the internet about mass stabbings on his personal computer."

According to the station, authorities seized a laptop from the home as well as a digital camera. They also reportedly recovered a Hannibal Lecter mask and the books "Hit List" and "Hitman," which deal with serial killings.

"The Book of Five Rings," a martial arts text on sword fighting, was also reportedly seized.

The warrant stated that Quick "sharpened various instruments such as a hairbrush and pencils to use as weapons.

He allegedly confessed that he used an X-acto knife and a scalpel in the campus stabbing spree, according to the warrant.

Quick waived his right to a probable cause hearing Thursday and was a no show in court.

He remains jailed and is under a suicide watch, according to his attorney.

If convicted, Quick faces up to 20 years in prison.
