Audrey Hill’s Nashville school pre-murder spree will be released to the public after a team of FBI forensic analysts analyze its contents.
According to the New York Post, the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit is working “along with” the Nashville Police Department to complete “an in-depth analysis of specific aspects of the shooter’s life.”
Nashville Councilman Robert Swoop said, “The statement will be issued. It’s just a matter of time. There are some incredibly brilliant psychological minds and psychoanalysts walking through her life.”
Transgender Hill, 28, left behind the manifest as well as a detailed map of the school she once attended and apparently planned an elaborate attack, which left three students and three staff dead.

On Monday morning, 28-year-old Audrey Hall attacked Covenant School, which she previously attended.
Swoop told The Post that Hill reviewed two other potential schools, both public, as targets for her attack, before deciding that “security was too big to do what she wanted to do.”
“So she chose a private Christian school, maybe the reason is that the security is much less,” he said.
I’m beyond sad. That this kind of evil actually exists in this world, it’s amazing to me. I don’t know how our society gets past this.
On Monday morning, Hale attacked Covenant School, which she previously attended, at around 10 am.
At about 10.13am, Hale opened fire on Covenant School, shooting and killing Evelyn Dechhaus, Haley Scruggs and William Kenny, all nine.
Substitute teacher Cynthia Beck, 61, headteacher Dr Catherine Concey, 60, and bouncer Mike Hill, 61, were also killed.
Consi has worked alongside her daughter Anna at Covenant School, serving as a faculty/student assistant.
Within 14 minutes, Hill was dead, as Nashville police released photos of the two officers—Rex Engelbart and Michael Collazo—who shot and killed Hill.
In a statement released late Monday night, a school spokesperson said: “Our community is grieving.
We are deeply saddened and shocked by the horror that shattered our school and church.
“We focus on loving our students, families, faculty, and staff and beginning the healing process.”

Police said Hill was transgender, though they did not specify other details. She was born female, but the LinkedIn profile believed to be hers uses her pronouns, indicating that Hale was living as a man.

Nashville Police Chief John Drake said Hill left a statement indicating outrage over being sent to a Christian school.
Hill’s mother, Norma Hill, worked as an curate at a local church and frequently posted articles about the religion on Facebook.
The person we know as Audrey Hill is a 28-year-old from Nashville. We have a belief that she went to school in the area – in that actual school.
“There is some belief that there was some resentment about having to go to that school,” Drake said, speaking to NBC News.
You don’t have all the details on that yet and that’s why this incident happened.
The six victims are three nine-year-old children and three employees.
How did the Nashville school shooting happen?
09:53 am – A gray Honda Fit was seen arriving at Covenant School in Nashville.
09:54 am – Hale is seen driving in the parking lot, seemingly calm. Nothing suggests that anything out of the ordinary as she finds her own corner.
10:10 a.m The front glass door, which had been locked, shattered as Hill fired. Then you step through the ruins into the empty reception area of the church next to the school.
10:13 a.m – Hale brandishes her assault rifle as she enters a carpeted room inside the church, searching for any victims. The room is empty. The first call to 911 about the shooting in the building came at this time.
10:18 a.m Hill is seen on the same camera inside the church still searching for the victims. She opens the door to the next room.
10:19 a.m – the 28-year-old walked back out the door and pointed her gun even though no one was there. She tried another door, then came back 30 seconds later.
10:20 a.m Hill now walks through a building with a wooden floor marked “First” in the footage, after an empty reception. She chases down the corridor, then disappears from view.
10:27 a.m Hill was shot and killed on the second floor of the school, where she engaged the officers, who returned fire and killed her.
