The families of the Columbine High School victims and some survivors of the 1999 attack got their first look yesterday at the evidence in the case, including guns, trench coats, bullets and bombs, reports the Rocky Mountain News. The display was a precursor for the transfer of the evidence to the state archives. “You really have to stand back and say, ‘Wow,’ ” said Don Fleming, whose daughter, Kelly, was killed in the Columbine library. There were gasoline jugs and propane tanks taken from the cars of the killers, bullet- scarred chairs from the library, videotapes of autopsies, hundreds of bullet fragments, shell casings,bomb parts, and the guns themselves.
One thing the families didn’t get was a report by Attorney General Ken Salazar on the handling of reports about killers Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold made in the two years before they attacked the school. That will come today. Also scheduled for today is the public release of a 94-minute video montage of images of the Columbine killers and a 38-minute videotape of the crowd outside the school after the shootings.
