Officials say that the Virginia Tech gunman sent photographs, videos and writings to NBC New York after killing two in a dorm and before killing himself and 30 people in Monday's massacre.
Authorities say that the package contained pictures of Cho brandishing weapons and video of him delivering a message about getting even with rich people.
MSNBC said the package included images and a CD-ROM on which Cho read a manifesto. According to officials, it was a manifesto that "rants against rich people and warns that he wants to get even."
NBC has now become part of the investigation. The network says it turned the package over to authorities. According to Virginia State Police, the information could be a very new, critical part of the investigation.
NBC said that the time stamp on the package indicated the material was mailed within the two-hour window between the first shooting and the second shooting.
Currently, authorities are analyzing the package in order to determine its worth.
