(TJV) The transgender shooter’s manifesto will be released publicly, but only after the FBI has combed through it to build a psychological profile of the killer.
Nashville Council Member Robert Swope told the New York Post that the manifesto will be released publicly after all.
“The manifesto is going to be released. It’s just a matter of when. There are some incredibly brilliant psychological minds and psychological analysts combing through her entire life,” said Swope.
The FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit is working “in tandem with” the Metro Nashville Police Department (MNPD) to complete “a very in-depth analysis of certain aspects of the shooter’s life,” Swope added.
Speculation has raged as to whether Tennessee’s ban on hormone treatments and puberty blockers for children, as well as its restrictions on drag queen shows, were motivating factors for Hale.
A Daily Mail report suggests Hale’s parents refused to respect her new ‘he/him’ pronouns and that the shooter would leave the home to change outfits.
According to the report, Hale’s parents “just didn’t accept” her new lifestyle.
