A recently released autopsy report indicates that the clothes of Nashville Christian school shooter Audrey Hale were adorned with mysterious “handwritten words, drawings and numbers.”
On March 27, Audrey Hale, a 28-year-old transgender individual, entered The Covenant School, a Christian elementary school in Nashville, and tragically shot three 9-year-old children and three staff members.
During a search of her residence, authorities discovered ammunition, weapons, several journals, a dozen school yearbooks, various writings and a suicide note.
The autopsy report, released four months later, discloses that alongside the notes on her clothing, Hale also had a knife with the name “Aiden” engraved on it, representing her preferred name. Additionally, she was found wearing an orange plastic anklet with the number 508507 etched on it, as reported by the Daily Mail.
The contents of what was written on Hale’s clothes remain unclear. The autopsy report indicated that there were no drugs or alcohol detected in her system.

In mid-May, a judge read Hale’s unreleased and unredacted manifesto following lawsuits filed by the National Association of Police and Stephen Miller’s law firm, America First Legal, seeking access to the writings.
America First Legal vice president and general counsel Gene Hamilton said in a statement, “A deranged transgender psychopath took six innocent lives and struck at the heart of a tight-knit community. While we grieve for the families and pray for God’s peace, righteousness and perfect justice to prevail upon all affected by this horrible situation, the fact remains that the public has a right to see these documents. This is not the time for gamesmanship for ideological reasons, and we will fight to help our client obtain the documents he requested and is entitled to under the law.”
According to the New York Post, in June, Hale’s parents transferred ownership of their daughter’s manifesto to the families of Covenant School students in an attempt to prevent its release.
The Post reported, “In an unprecedented move, Chancery Court Judge I’Ashea Myles ruled 100 of The Covenant School’s 112 families had a right to intervene in the litigation and said she would consider arguments from the families’ camp. The Covenant School and Covenant Presbyterian Church have also been allowed to weigh in.”
The groups attempting to obtain access to the documents filed an appeal. However, as The Post highlighted, the Metro Nashville Police Department still retains control of the manifesto, regardless of who technically owns the file. The police stated that Hale’s writings are part of an ongoing investigation, which could continue for another year.
