UPDATE FROM YOUR NEW REALITY:
This is an update to the post below.
According to Darryl Mason of Your New Reality:
A reporter on SBS News in Australia, doing a live cross from outside Virginia Tech, just claimed that he received information that there was a “mystery” about the identity of the man who went on a killing spree inside classrooms at Virginia Tech.The reporter said police are now thinking there were two killers, one who shot the female student and student advisor in a dorm just after 7am, and another who did the killings in the Norris Hall Engineering block two hours later.He said if there was no connection between the two shooting sprees it would be something of a “monumental coincidence” to have two shootings on the same campus within two hours of each other.Apparently the descriptions of the man who was seen leaving the dorm and the man who killed more than 30 students on the other side of the campus, at Norris Hall, do not match up.News on this is still breaking, so the “mystery” may already be resolved by the time you read this. However, the possibility of two separate killers would give credence to police and college officials’ claims that they believed the shootings were over once police had secured the dorm, even though the gunman had not been detained.A second killer would explain how officials and police were taken completely by surprise by the second, far more deadly, shooting spree.However, the official story thus far gets murky. The same report on SBS News also said that email warnings were circulated to students to look out for someone who may be dangerous and for students to report suspicious behaviour to police or officials, just before the second shooting spree began.Presumably, this e-mail warning refers to the first killer, who is believed to have left the dorm after he shot his girlfriend and a student advisor, if that story actually stands up to scrutinising. And there’s no guarantee that the facts as known of the first shooting will not change as well.
The gunman suspected of carrying out the Virginia Tech massacre that left 33 people dead was identified Tuesday as a English major whose creative writing was so disturbing that he was referred to the school’s counseling service.
Cho Seung-Hui, a 23-year-old senior, arrived in the United States as boy fromin 1992 and was raised in suburban Washington, D.C., officials said. He was living on campus in a different dorm from the one where Monday’s bloodbath began.
Two writers, two different stories. Who’s right? Lone gunman, or two?
