While authorities have confirmed that the note exists, its contents have not disclosed what it contains.
According to NBC News, on Tuesday authorities released a list of items discovered at the home following the shooting. Among them were several journals, a shotgun, cellphones, laptops, and a suicide note. Old photos and yearbooks from The Covenant School, where Hale was a former student, were also recovered.
The MNPD declined to provide further details regarding the contents of the note, a document which many have suggested could shine some light on the potential motive behind the mass shooting, which left six people dead.
Officers did reveal, however, that many of the othe documents they found included notes about firearms courses and school shootings of the past.
On Monday, police revealed that Hale planned the attack "over a period of months," and that she fired 152 rounds from the time she shot her way into the school until being killed by police.
"The writings remain under careful review by the MNPD and the FBI's Behavioral Analysis Unit based in Quantico, Virginia. The motive for Hale’s actions has not been established and remains under investigation by the Homicide Unit in consultation with the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit," MNPD wrote.
Hale's manifesto has also been recovered, and its contents will reportedly be released to the public as soon as the FBI has analyzed it.
This is a breaking story and will be updated.
