The killer was identified as a 23-year-old English major from Centerville Va in suburban Washington DC. A Korean-born immigrant, ABC rendered his name as Seung-Hui Cho; CBS and NBC used Cho Seung-Hui, surname first. NBC's Pete Williams' anonymous sources at the murder investigation called Cho an "emotionally-troubled loner" who felt "picked-on and bullied." His classroom writing included two short plays Mr Brownstone and Richard McBeef about "students who were angry at teachers and parents," Williams added. ABC's Pierre Thomas (subscription required) reported that Cho "expressed hatred for rich students." His creative writing teacher Lucinda Roy was worried enough about his behavior that she inquired about psychological counseling for him: "He seemed so disturbed anyway that we needed to do something about this."
