Va. Tech Gunman Sent a Video Manifesto and Photos to NBC

By  | 

BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) - A gunman's final tirade is the focus of video and other materials mailed by the Virginia Tech shooter to NBC headquarters in New York.

NBC says the package contained a rambling and often-incoherent, 18-hundred-word video manifesto on C-D, plus 43 photos, eleven showing him aiming handguns at the camera.

Cho Seung-Hui said in one excerpt aired on NBC Nightly News, "You had a hundred billion chances and ways to avoid today." He also ranted about rich "brats" and their "hedonistic needs."

NBC says the package was received in this morning's mail. It was apparently sent between the first and second shootings Monday that left 32 people dead.
