(04/19/07) WOODBURY ? A Virginia Tech student from Centereach says she remembers the gunman responsible for Monday?s school massacre as ?shy.?
Lauren Mocater took a class with Cho Seung-Hui called Contemporary Horror. Mocater says Cho used to write his name as a question mark, a practice she says other teachers noticed as well.
Cho?s violent act continued to reverberate through the nation Wednesday in the form of a package he mailed to NBC News before his death. In the package, Cho included photos, video and a lengthy written document.
Most of the pictures show Cho posing with the two guns he apparently used to kill 32 people, and himself. In the video, he goes on a lengthy diatribe against Christianity and the rich.
?Your Mercedes wasn?t enough, you brats,? said Cho in the video. ?Your golden necklaces weren?t enough, you snobs. Your trust funds wasn?t enough. Your vodka and cognac wasn?t enough. All your debaucheries weren?t enough.?
Cho apparently mailed the package to NBC in between the two Virginia Tech shooting incidents. That act may account for a significant portion of the two hours that elapsed in between the separate, violent incidents.
Although he sent the package overnight, he wrote the wrong zip code, which delayed delivery until Wednesday.
