Va. Tech Gunman Named
By Michael Shear and Debbi Wilgoren Washington Post Staff Writers Tuesday, April 17, 2007; 9:36 AM
Virginia Tech officials today identified the Virginia Tech student who killed 32 people and then himself on the Blacksburg campus yesterday as 23-year-old Cho Seung-Hui of Centreville.
Cho was a South Korean native who had immigrated to this country, the university announced on its Web site this morning. He was a senior majoring in English, and lived in a dorm on campus, officials said.

I didn’t write that ... I posted it from a sick, lib site ..
The NEA and the mass media have done their work in successfully brainwashing America into believing that “Diversity is Strength” is real and logical thought.
Orwell may be rolling over in his grave, but the only outrage you are going to hear from the controlled people of this nation will be against gun ownership and the 2nd amendment.
I don’t have any idea about the girlfriend or how it relates to the timeline of purchasing the gun as of this reply, sorry.
From what I understand, when he left the first shooting scene, and wandered away, he strolled over to his dorm room area, reloaded, did whatever, and left a note behind.
I can't imagine why they would withhold information on the note, if there was only one shooter, and he's dead.
Thanks, there is a post up now about a note, for those who are interested.
I agree that the PRC angle is probably wholly bogus, OR that a passport check showed that his “last entry” was on a flight from Shanghai (as orginally reported) after just vacationing or visiting China. Vast numbers of americans, of whatever ancestry, now do that.
Cho has the words ‘Ismial Ax’ written on the inside of his arm. Does anyone know what that means? I googled it and come up with nothing.
I just heard on Fox that the letter he left included a name....something like, “Islam X”...didn’t quite hear it and then it was over.
“Looks like the web site where the post originated has gone dark.”
Yeah, I tried it a couple of times last night from a link provided by FReeper Ernest at the Beach...comment 31 (Removed by moderator) here...http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1818502/posts
...it would not load so I gave up.
correction...just heard it again...ISMAIL X was the name.
I haven't heard that yet. Only about the note left behind, and law enforcement declining to release information on the note.
I just corrected to you..it was Ismail X.
He railed against rich kids and something about a corrupt culture. Signed the note: Ismail X
Chicago Tribune is writing the following:
“The note included a rambling list of grievances, according to sources. Cho had shown recent signs of violent, aberrant behavior, according to an investigative source, including setting a fire in a dorm room and allegedly stalking some women.
A note believed to have been written by Cho was found in his dorm room that railed against rich kids, debauchery and deceitful charlatans on campus.
The English major from Centreville, Va., a rapidly growing suburb of Washington, D.C., came to the United States in 1992, an investigative source said. He was a legal permanent resident.
His family runs a dry cleaning business and he has a sister who graduated from Princeton University.”
Have you heard any details about the supposed note he had in his backpack. I read on another thread that it was signed ‘Ismael X’ but there weren’t any other details.
Those of us who just shove our receipts into the black holes known as "purses" have had YEARS-old receipts swim to the top.
That's ridiculous. What is your point...that outside of an anti-gun motive the murder of 33 innocent people is not newsworthy>
Interesting. If true, I can now see why they are witholding contents of the note. This won't go over well.
