Nashville Trans Shooter Had Daddy Issues, Wanted to Kill Her Father, According to Leaked Journal Entries

Newly leaked pages from the Nashville school shooter’s journal depict a profoundly disturbed young woman with intense daddy issues.

Audrey Elizabeth Hale, who identified as a trans male, targeted the Christian Covenant School on March 27, 2023, killing three children and three members of the school’s staff before being shot dead by responding officers.

Even though police shot the suspect dead inside the school, the FBI has repeatedly refused to release Hale’s writings, arguing that doing so “could reasonably be expected to interfere with enforcement proceedings.”

After months of FBI stonewalling, several pages of Hale’s journal were leaked last November to “Louder With Crowder” host Steven Crowder, revealing a left-wing, anti-white manifesto.

Seven Nashville police officers were reportedly placed on “administrative assignment” while an investigation ensued to identify the leaker.

According to  Crowder, none of the seven was his source.

In March of 2024, a federal judge in Tennessee ordered the FBI to hand over the journal to the court, so she could review the contents.

“The FBI is ORDERED to produce ex parte all documents that are potentially responsive to the defendants’ Freedom of Information Act request for in camera review, with the exception that, based on the plaintiffs’ concessions in this litigation, the FBI need not produce any documents that could not reasonably be construed to bear on Audrey Hale’s motives,” Judge Aleta Trauger of the Middle District of Tennessee wrote.

Now, a source familiar with the Covenant killer investigation has leaked more pages from Hale’s disturbing diary.

One bizarre entry, obtained by American Greatness, begins with the quote: “(Seize the day)”.

“Suck the marrow out of life,” she wrote, attributing the quote to someone who’s identity was scratched out.

Me: Give the Marrow to the birds.

Animals: They deserve to live.

Smash up the bones with a mallet of death.

+ one to choke myself with.

Under these words, the then-28-year-old wrote “X Die X”

And at the bottom of the page, she wrote, “this Bastard has no idea what love is. Neither do I. F-ck it.” The page was dated 2/13/23.

On the next page, Hale focused on her “Dad problems,” complaining that he always turns “the other way” like she’s not there.

“I hate when my dad loves on the cats; not me. FAGGOT!!!” she wrote. “He never once loved on me for years, maybe like ever (as a child maybe)”.

Psychologists have found that people with “daddy issues” tend to have pathological “dark triad” traits.

The term “dark triad” refers to “a trio of negative personality traits—narcissism, Machiavellianism, and psychopathy—which share some common malevolent features.”

In her diary, Hale said that she hated her father’s “old cranky-man existence,” and wished death upon all men like him.

“All cranky, good-for-nothing, mentally ill men SHOULD DIE,” she wrote. The’re [sic] all useless pieces of sh-t

Waste of life, waste of time

Waste of human population.

Dad just takes up space for all I know

dried out + hollow

says negative shit all the time, like

“one. He’s a loser”

“I hate movies like this”

“I don’t care”

Well guess what?





Dad is not real.

Everything hurts.

Last week, the Tennessee Star reported on dozens of other leaked pages from Hale’s journal, including an entry in which she described her struggles with trans ideology.

“A terrible feeling to know I am nothing of the gender I was born of,” Hale wrote, adding, “I am the most unhappy boy alive. I wish to be dead.”

Later, Hale wrote, “I will be of no use of love for any girl if I don’t have what they need: boy’s body / male gender.”

Again, she wrote: “Everything Hurts.”

In a political rant, Hale also lashed out at the United States, claiming that the country has failed to protect the rights of gun owners, “transgenders,” and “non-binary” Americans.

“So now in America, it makes one a criminal to have a gun or, be transgender, or non-binary,” wrote Hale on February 20, 2023. “Disabled have rights, civil races have rights, LGBTQ have rights, gun owners have rights.”

In an entry titled “My Imaginary Penis,”  Hale expounded more on her gender struggles and described her perverted sexual fantasies involving stuffed animals.

“I finally found the answer—that changing one’s gender is possible,” wrote Hale in the March 11, 2023, entry. She went on to describe her attempts to simulate intercourse between a “stuffed boy doll” she named Tony and another stuffed animal.

“G-d, I am such a pervert,” wrote Hale. “I waste too much time in my fantasies.”
