Manifesto of Nashville shooter Audrey Hale to be made public after FBI check: official
The manifesto of Nashville school shooter Audrey Hale ahead of the assassination is due to be made public after the FBI and its highly trained team of criminal profilers analyze its contents, a member of the Nashville Council told The Post.
Robert Swope said Wednesday that the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit is working “in tandem” with the Nashville Police Department (MNPD) to complete “a very deep analysis of some aspects of the shooter’s life.”
“The manifesto will be made public. It’s just a matter of time. There are some incredibly brilliant psychologists and psychological analysts combing her entire life,” added Swope, who is a member of the City Council Committee on Public Safety, Beer and Regulated Beverages.
Hale, 28, a transgender woman, left behind a manifesto as well as detailed maps of the school she methodically planned to attack, killing three students and three employees.
The shooter arrived at the Covenant School around 9:54 a.m. Monday, surveillance footage shows.
Minutes later, Hale sent a former classmate several messages and told the woman, “I plan to die today… You will probably hear about me on the news.”
Authorities said the attack was pre-planned and targeted, and Hale had another weapons cache hidden in the brick house she shared with her parents.
Police rushed to the scene, where Hale shot at them as they arrived, MNPD head John Drake told reporters.
Hale’s parents claimed they thought she sold her legally purchased firearms after they voiced their disapproval, police said, but instead she used two assault rifles and a pistol to complete her nefarious suicide mission.
Hale was dead within 14 minutes of the alarm being raised, but not before 9-year-olds Evelyn Dickhouse, Hallie Scruggs and William Kinney were killed, along with school janitor Mike Hill and substitute teacher Cynthia Peake, who are 61 and 60 years. – the old headmistress Katherine Koonse.
One of the children, Hallie, was the daughter of Covenant Church pastor Chad Scruggs.

Kunse, an educator with over 23 years of experience, joined the school as principal in 2016. Kunse’s daughter, Anna, also worked at the school as a teacher and student assistant.
Police have not yet released information about the motive, but said the target of the attack was the school and not specific victims.
Swope told The Post Hale she “looked over” two other schools, both of which were public, before deciding “the security was too high to do what she wanted.”
“That’s why she chose a private Christian school, probably because there is much less security,” he continued.
The board member, who spoke to The Post on his way to Wednesday night’s vigil, said he and other Nashville officials are looking into ways to “protect our schools from ballistics, active artificial intelligence systems that can recognize weapons a hundred yards outside when any circumstances.” “.
He praised the work of the Metro Nashville Police Department and other first responders.
“I am more than heartbroken. It amazes me that such evil actually exists in this world,” Swope said. “I don’t know how our community gets through this.”
