Not the Perp, Says Internet Figure
A Virginia Tech student who Internet rumor pegged as a suspect in the shooting comes out and denies he is the man lying dead on campus. He posts on his website:
Coming out. I am not the shooter. Through this experience, I have received numerous death threats, slanderous accusations, and my phone is out of charge from the barrage of calls. Local police have been notified of the situation.
My original intention was to wait until I got AdSense on my site and donating all the proceeds to Charity. However, this situation has now spiraled out of control. I am now confirming that I am not the shooter. I will be available for interview by a news agency to clear my name, talk about the experience, and give my opinion on how the situation could have turned out better if other students were allowed to be armed. I will only speak with individuals who are interested in donating to charities resulting from today's events. Please e-mail all correspondence to firstname.lastname@example.org
From the looks of this person's site the shooter would have had a tough time going up against him had he been among the students and armed.
