Virginia Tech Gunman Sent Material to NBC

Cho Seung-Hi, the perpetrator of the Virginia Tech massacres, sent a press packet to NBC in between shooting sprees.

The Virginia Tech gunman mailed a package of photographs, video and writings to NBC News in New York before he killed himself in the massacre that left 33 people dead, authorities said Wednesday. NBC said that a time stamp on the package indicated the material was mailed in the two-hour window between the first burst of gunfire in a high-rise dormitory and the second fusillade, at a classroom building.


NBC said it immediately turned the package — containing what the network described as a “lengthy diatribe” from Cho Seung-Hi — over to authorities on Wednesday.

Quite bizarre.

UPDATE: CNN is running regular updates.
