The manifesto left by Nashville Covenant School shooter Audrey Hale may soon be released to the public.
Metro Nashville Police Department’s Public Information Office told Fox 17 News on Thursday, "The investigation has advanced to the point that writings from the Covenant shooter are now being reviewed for public release. That process is underway and will take a little time."
Hale, who identified as transgender, entered the Covenant School on March 27, killing three staff members and three young students.
In the weeks since, Tennessee Rep. Tim Burchett said that the manifesto "could maybe tell us a little bit about what’s going on inside of [Hale's] head," adding that the manifesto should not be made available to the public, but rather to lawmakers and the families of the deceased.
Metro Nashville Council Member Courtney Johnston stated that according to her sources, the document was "a blueprint on total destruction," adding that "it was so, so detailed at the level of what [Hale] had planned." Johnston also cautioned against releasing it to the world, noting that while some parts should be made available, the document in its entirety "in the wrong person's hands would be astronomically dangerous."
Law enforcement recovered numerous documents from Hale's vehicle and bedroom, showing that she was "planning over a period of months to commit mass murder at The Covenant School." Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Director David Rausch explained that "one is specifically a plan and the other is some journal-type rantings."
At the time of publication, it remains unclear whether or not elements of the manifesto will be redacted.
