PostSubject: Columbine Evidence   Wed May 31, 2017 1:08 am

This is my first post so sorry if I posted it wrong.

I just recently started reading Jodi Picoult's book "Nineteen Minutes" which is about a school shooting and decided to look up where she got her idea from. I found an interview online and thought it was interesting:
The interviewer asked: How did you go about conducting research for Nineteen Minutes?
Picoult: I actually began through my longtime legal research helper, who had a colleague that had worked in the FBI and put me in touch with the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office -- the people who investigated the Columbine shootings. I spoke with them, and they sent me DVDs and material that had never been made available to the public, which helped a bit to get into the mindset of the shooters.

The book was published in 2007. Any ideas what the "DVDs and material" could have been??

Their home videos, school projects, photographs, copies of their journals etc. Nothing we haven't seen before.

JeffCo was selling the DVD at some point... as tasteless as that seems.
