(ReclaimingAmerica.net) – A new report reveals the Christian school that was the scene of the deadly Nashville School Shooting in March has taken legal steps to prevent the release of the manifesto left by the dead shooter.
On March 27, 2023, a 28-year-old local woman, Audrey Hale, identifying as a “trans man” named Aidan, murdered three primary school children and three elderly staffers at Covenant Presbyterian School in Nashville, Tennessee.
The heavily armed attacker, who had two semi-automatic rifles and a handgun, was shot dead by police responders minutes later, preventing more extensive bloodshed.
The shooting, which claimed the lives of three 9-year-olds, was followed by pro-transgender and anti-gun rights protest rallies in Tennessee and neighboring Kentucky in which protesters breached the respective State Capitols.
Shortly after the shooting, there were reports that Hale had left a note about her motives to carry out the carefully planned massacre. However, the murderer’s manifesto hasn’t been released to the public.
Almost a month after the shooting, The New York Post reported that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was “stalling” the publication of the attacker’s note.
The report quoted Courtney Johnston, a nonpartisan member of the Metro Nashville Council.
Following the report, a local newspaper, The Tennessee Star, filed a public records request for the release of the killer’s manifesto. However, it was denied on April 25, according to Breitbart.
A May 14 report by The Daily Mail disclosed that the “trans man’s” murder letter had been handed over to “a judge in Nashville,” who could decide whether to release it publicly.
Yet, on Monday, Covenant Presbyterian School submitted to the judge a motion to block a potential publication of the manifesto, according to a report by FOX 17 Nashville.
“The disposition of this action may impair or impede its ability to protect its interests and the privacy of its employees and students,” reads the school’s motion.
The Christian institution further alleges that the release of Audrey Hale’s manifesto could make public “schematics of the school” and the school facilities” as well as confidential information about students and school employees.
The school was established in 2001 by the Covenant Presbyterian Church. It teaches students from pre-kindergarten through sixth grade.
The institution in Nashville’s Green Hills neighborhood has about 200 students.
Besides the three young students, attacker Audrey Hale also killed the school principal, a substitute teacher, and a janitor, all in their 60s.
