Seung-Hui Cho: Virginia Tech Killer's Mental Health Records Found
The Virginia Tech Killer, Seung-Hui Cho, mental health records have been found at the former clinic director's home. Dr. Robert C. Miller, transferred the files from Virgina Tech, when he left the position over a year before the shootings.
Seung-Hui Cho killed 32 people on April 16, 2007, then committed suicide as police closed in. His mental health treatment has been a major issue in the investigation of the shootings
Miller is being sued by families of victims in the Virginia Tech shootings, who are claiming gross negligence in stopping the gunman. Robert Miller is said to have received warnings from Seung-Hui Cho's English professors about his worrying behavior and the school's residential director stating unstable behavior, self-destructive thoughts and 'blades' in his residence.
The lawsuit claims Miller never passed that information on to either of the therapists from the counseling center who dealt with Cho during three 45-minute triage sessions in 2005.
Because Miller never passed on the information and the records were lost, opportunities to "deflect him (Cho) from his dangerous and ultimately tragic course were lost," the lawsuit states.
