The manifesto belonging to the transgender shooter who killed six people at a Christian school in Nashville has been delayed, according to law enforcement.
The Metro Nashville Police Department issued the following statement Wednesday about shooter Audrey Hale, who slaughtered three nine-year-old kids and three adults at the Covenant School:
Due to pending litigation filed this week, the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department has been advised by counsel to hold in abeyance the release of records related to the shooting at The Covenant School pending orders or direction of the court.
National radio host Todd Starnes slammed the authorities for holding onto the manifesto.
“They know why she did what she did, but they don’t want you to know,” he said on the “Todd Starnes Show” Wednesday. “This is all political.”
Caleb Parke, Starnes Media Group managing editor, echoed Starnes on Twitter.
“Release the transgender killer’s manifesto … the victim’s families and public deserve to know … especially before any laws are changed in reaction to this mass school shooting,” Parke said.
Last week, local police said Hale’s manifesto was “being reviewed for public release.”
Metro Nashville Councilwoman Courtney Johnston told the outlet officials who have reviewed the manifesto said it “keeps them up at night” and that gunning down the Christian school was “a small sliver” in Hale’s plans.
