NBC receives package from Virginia Tech killer

NBC receives package from Virginia Tech killer

It has been revealed that the Virginia Tech gunman, Cho Seung-Hui, posted photographs of himself to the U.S. TV network, NBC News, between his first and second killing sprees. 32 people died in the massacre.

The package contains photos of Cho Seung-Hui brandishing guns and a video of him delivering an angry tirade. “You forced me into a corner and gave me only one option. The decision was yours. Now you have blood on your hands that will never wash off,” he says in it.

NBC said the package was received two days after the deadliest one-man shooting rampage in modern U.S. history.

Police said Cho Seung-Hui had previously been accused of stalking two female students. In 2005, he was taken to a mental health facility because of concerns that he might be suicidal. Cho's professors had also been concerned about his writing, which contained violent scenes.
