Audrey Hale has been dead for over a month. Hale killed six people at Covenant Christian School before being fatally shot by police. Local politicians accuse the FBI of stalling the release of Hale’s manifesto for weeks. Nashville Council members described the manifesto as a blueprint for total destruction because of its potentially harmful content.
According to widespread rumors, Hale’s document has not been made public because it would prove that her transgender identity was to blame for her attack on the school.
Rep. Tim Burchett (R-Tenn.) has been calling for the release of this document since it was found. He claims that the document could “shed light on what was going on in her head.” He believes that the release of the manifesto would provide answers to many questions — answers we haven’t gotten in a month.
Metro Nashville Police Department will release Audrey Hale’s manifesto. The FBI and MNPD are reviewing the document for public release.
The New York Post previously received confirmation from Metro Nashville Council Member Courtney Johnston that the FBI had already determined it wouldn’t be released in the near future. “What I was told is, her manifesto was a blueprint on total destruction, and it was so, so detailed at the level of what she had planned,” Johnston said, that “that document in the wrong person’s hands would be astronomically dangerous.”
It is important that the public knows what the manifesto contains. However, I will not believe it is going to be released until I see it with my own eyes.
