Did shooter post pre-massacre threat on Internet messageboard?

Was an Internet messageboard post made on Wednesday night by a user who threatened to kill himself on Friday morning and “make the news” made by Connecticut school shooter Adam Lanza, or is it a Photoshopped fake?
The post, which according to the screenshot appeared on the 4Chan website at 22:18 on Wednesday night and was made by a user called ‘iKTatjYX’. The post stated, “I’m going to kill myself on Friday and it will make the news, be watching at 9am.”
Under the message is a disturbing image of the dead bodies of Columbine school shooters Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold.
A respondent subsequently asked the poster where he was based, to which he responded, “I live in Connecticut, that’s as much as I’ll say.”
4chan is a controversial messageboard once described by the Guardian as “lunatic, juvenile… brilliant, ridiculous and alarming.” It is frequented by hackers as well as pranksters, which is why the veracity of the post cannot be confirmed.
However, if proven true it would mean that Lanza’s massacre was pre-planned and not a spur of the moment rampage.
