BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) - Authorities say the Virginia Tech gunman sent material to N-B-C in New York before he died in the massacre that left 33 people dead.
Colonel Steve Flaherty, with the Virginia State Police, says the package included photographs, videos and writings.
N-B-C says a time stamp on the package indicates the material was mailed in the two-hour window between the first burst of gunfire and the second. Flaherty says "This may be a very new, critical component of this investigation."
Flaherty says authorities are in the process of "attempting to analyze and evaluate its worth."
N-B-C says it received the package today and turned it over to authorities. It's said to contain a "lengthy diatribe."
