Police Look for Motive in Tech Shootings

April 25, 2007

Investigators have continued working around the clock on the case of the Virginia Tech shootings, trying to shed light on Cho's motives.

As campus life takes steps toward normalcy, investigators search for
answers, but evidence so far has yielded no clue whatsoever as to why
Seung-Hui Cho's killing spree began at West Ambler Johnston Hall or
how he chose his victims.

State police also want to know why Cho, an English major, then
picked Norris Hall, a predominantly engineering building, to continue his
rampage.

In hopes of finding more evidence, investigators marched shoulder to
shoulder, retracing the steps toward the dormitory where Cho's first
victim, Emily Hilscher, was shot.

They've looked into Hilscher's e-mails and voicemail and examined Cho's
computers, e-mail messages and phone records but have still come up empty.

And while the community tries to move forward, students, faculty and
family still stop to visit this makeshift memorial. They bring flowers and others like freshman Liz Lam take photos. She lost three friends that day.

"I'm sad to like lose, you know, a couple friends," said Lam.

As investigators search for clues, Lam and others still want to know why students went to class after the first shootings and why so many had to die.
