Pages from the manifesto of Audrey Elizabeth Hale, the transgender-identifying shooter who murdered three adults and three nine-year-old children at Nashville’s Covenant School in March, appear to have been leaked to the public on Monday. The three leaked pages, published by conservative media host Steven Crowder but not yet verified by authorities, reveal Hale’s extensive planning of the attack as well as her desire to kill “little cr*ckers” for their “White privilege.”

Audrey Elizabeth Hale, self-identified as “Aiden,” carried out a mass shooting at the Covenant School in Nashville.

Audrey Hale, a 28-year-old biological female identifying as a male and using the name “Aiden,” opened fire at the Covenant School, a private Christian elementary school in Nashville, on the morning of March 27, 2023. Hale, who had attended the school as a child, was armed with an AR-15 rifle, a Kel-Tec SUB2000 pistol caliber carbine, and a 9mm Smith & Wesson sidearm, and was dressed in a tactical vest and a red hat.

Between 10:11 am and 10:25 am, Hale fired a total of 152 rounds, 126 with the AR-15 and 26 from the other two weapons, both firing 9mm.

Fourteen minutes after the shooting began, Hale was shot and killed by Nashville Police Officers Rex Engelbert and Michael Collazo in a response praised for its speed and tactical execution.

Despite the speedy police response, six lives were lost in the shooting: students Evelyn Dieckhaus, William Kinney, and Hallie Scruggs, all aged 9, and substitute teacher Cynthia Peak, 61, custodian Mike Hill, 61, and head of school Katherine Koonce, 60.

In the wake of the shooting, details about Hale’s personal life began to emerge, including her transgender self-identification, her diagnosis as a high-functioning autistic, and her recent treatment for an “emotional disorder.” Police also discovered writings and an alleged manifesto in the shooter’s vehicle and home, detailing her motives and laying out her extensive planning—including a list of other possible targets on which she had given up after her reconnaissance showed stronger security.

As the media scrambled to cover up her transgenderism and the Biden administration declared a “Transgender Day of Visibility,” police promised that the manifesto would be made public in short order.

That promise was never kept.

For more than seven months, Nashville police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation ignored Freedom of Information Act requests from multiple sources, vaguely citing investigations and lawsuits preventing the manifesto’s release.

But after all this time, partial copies of the shooter’s writings, including a schedule for the day of the murders, were made public by commentator Steven Crowder during the Monday episode of his show “Louder with Crowder.” What appear to be crime scene photos of documents found in Hale’s car show her calculated planning of the attack and speak to her unhinged motivations.

“Kill those kids!!! Those cr*ckers going to private fancy schools with those fancy khakis + sports backpacks w/ their daddies mustangs + convertables [sic],” Hale wrote in a journal entry dated February 3. “I wish to shoot you weakass d**ks w/ your mop yellow hair, wanna kill all you little cr*ckers! Bunch of little f****ts w/ your white privileges.”

Two additional pages show her plan for what she called “Death Day,” the day of the attack. On a page decorated with doodles of a handgun and something that seems to be labeled “Dark Abyss,” Hale wrote about her excitement and anxiety ahead of the shooting. “There were several times I could have been caught, especially back in the summer of 2021,” Hale wrote, though the incidents she is referencing are unknown. “Can’t believe I am doing this, but I am ready…I hope my victims aren’t.”

“It might be 10 minutes tops. It might be 3-7. It’s gonna go quick,” she continued. “I hope I have a high death count. Ready To Die. Haha.”

Another page lays out her anticipated minute-by-minute schedule for “Death Day,” beginning at 6:30 am and concluding at 12:33, writing “open fire towards SW entrance. Let massacre begin Time2die XXX.”

While Crowder and his investigative team, along with fellow conservative outlet Daily Wire report have confirmed the images’ authenticity, other outlets and Tennessee investigators have not verified them. An attorney for Hale’s family also declined to make further comment about the documents. Nashville Mayor Freddie O’Connell announced an investigation into how Crowder obtained the pictures but declined to clarify whether they were real.

Given the racially charged nature of Hale’s writings and the attack directly targeting a Christian school, many are calling for this to be retroactively labeled an anti-White hate crime, with some accusing authorities of deliberately covering up the political nature of the killings to protect favored groups.
