BREAKING: Nashville PD issues statement on leak of trans school shooter manifesto

"The photographs are not MNPD crime scene images."


The Metropolitan Nashville Police Department has issued an official reaction on its website to the leaked manifesto of the Covenant School shooter, and the ensuing investigation earlier announced by the mayor's office.

In a statement titled "MNPD Statement Concerning On-Line Photograph Dissemination," the agency said: "The MNPD is in communication with the Metropolitan Department of Law as an investigation, begun this morning, continues into the dissemination of three photographs of writings during an on-line discussion about Covenant School. The photographs are not MNPD crime scene images."

This last statement caused some on social media to claim that the police department is calling into question the authenticity of the leaked images that Crowder reported to be pages from the manifesto. The pages also suggested that Hale had made a final video statement, which also has not been public.

The Department added that it is in contact with a representative of Covenant families, who have been offered counselors to "assist them in coping with the emotional trauma caused by the dissemination." The Covenant families had previously filed a motion to not have the manifesto released, though FOIA requests were issued.

A leaked copy of the manifesto revealed that the trans-identifying woman who shot up the Covenant School, a Christian PreK-6 school in Nashville, Tennessee, had a profound hatred for "little crackers" with "white privilege." It has already been censored on Facebook on the same day it was leaked, Monday, Steven Crowder reported. Crowder was the one who released the manifesto pages on his Louder with Crowder Rumble channel.

Prior to the Department's announcement on the leak, Nashville Mayor Freddie O’Connell's office also gave a statement about the leak of the images, reportedly belonging to the shooter, known as Audrey "Aiden" Hale. 

The Daily Caller's Mary Margaret Olohan reported that "Nashville PD says they're 'still working on' identifying if this is the legit manifesto. Says that the Nashville PD will address on social media." She also said that "Nashville PD spokeswoman just refused to confirm to me whether this was the legit manifesto."

The information was uncovered on Steven Crowder's Louder with Crowder show, and shows that Hale had detailed plans as to what she planned to do on March 27, the day three young children and school staff were shot and killed. 

"DEATH DAY," Hale scribbled on one page along with a target reticle and a pistol, with the date "3/27/23."

"The day has finally come!" Hale had written. "I can't believe its [sic] here. Don't know how I was able to get this far, but here I am. I'm a little nervous but excited too. Been excited for the past 2 weeks."

"Can’t believe I’m doing this, but I’m ready," Hale wrote. "I hope my victims aren’t."

Hale even prayed to God in the manifesto, writing, "(God let my wrath take over my anxiety) It might be 10 minutes tops. It might be 3-7. It's gonna go quick," Hale wrote. "I hope I have a high death count."

Other writings included, "F*ck you little sh*ts," and "Wanna kill all you little crackers!!! Bunch of little faggots w/ your white privileges f*ck you faggots."

This is a breaking story and will be updated.
