Media personality Steven Crowder announced on Monday that he obtained the manifesto of the Nashville school shooter that left three dead on March 27.

Crowder posted to X, formerly Twitter, and claimed that his investigative team “obtained exclusive access to the Nashville Covenant shooter’s manifesto.”

He released photos of three pages that included comments and information about Audrey “Aiden” Hale’s day.

The images included portions of the manifesto from the day on which the shooting occurred, stating, “The day has finally come!”

“I can’t believe it’s here,” wrote Hale.

“Don’t know how I was able to get this far, but here I am. I’m a little nervous but excited too. Been excited for the past two weeks. There were several times I could have been caught, especially back in the summer of 2021.”

Another page from the alleged manifesto details what Hale did during the day of the shooting, beginning at 6:30 a.m. and ending right before the shooting took place.

While it has not been officially confirmed that the notebook belonged to Hale, the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department (MNPD) previously stated that writings from Hale were recovered following the shooting.

“In the collective writings by Hale found in her vehicle in the school parking lot, and others later found in the bedroom of her home, she documented, in journals, her planning over a period of months to commit mass murder at The Covenant School.”

“The writings remain under careful review by the MNPD and the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit based in Quantico, Virginia,” wrote the department in an April press release.

MNPD Chief John Drake also confirmed that a manifesto was found by law enforcement, but he did not say whether it would be released to the public.

“We have a manifesto, we have some writings that we are going over that pertain to this date, the actual incident, we have a map drawn out of how this was all going to take place,” said Drake at a press conference following the shooting, as previously reported by The Dallas Express.

Crowder published these images amidst a push from multiple groups to release the manifesto.

Doug Pierce, an attorney for the National Police Association, told Fox News that the manifesto is “part of the public record” since police took the writings into custody, as previously reported by The Dallas Express.

On the other hand, some parents from The Covenant School had voiced their opposition to releasing the writings due to concerns about harassment, intimidation, and abuse, as previously reported by The Dallas Express.
