The Writing of Seung-Hui Cho

As we continue to work on the Virginia Tech story, we’re running across details about Seung-Hui Cho’s past.  Ian MacFarlane, a young staff member at AOL, says he was with him in a creative-writing course last year. 

In an AOL blog, MacFarlane writes, "When I first heard about the multiple shootings at Virginia Tech yesterday, my first thought was about my friends, and my second thought was "’I bet it was Seung Cho.’"

He continues: "He would sit by himself whenever possible, and didn’t like talking to anyone. I don’t think I’ve ever actually heard his voice before. He was just so quiet and kept to himself. Looking back, he fit the exact stereotype of what one would typically think of as a "school shooter" – a loner, obsessed with violence, and serious personal problems."
