WASHINGTON — Andy Koch, a former suitemate of Virginia Tech shooter Cho Seung-Hui, provided NBC News the transcript of an instant message (IM) conversation he had in 2005 with a female student who received IMs from Cho. Koch says he has also turned them over to the detectives investigating the school shootings.
Koch says he initiated the conversation with the female student after he learned that Cho had begun sending her unsolicited IMs. He says he was concerned and wanted to warn her. The female student, whose name NBC News is withholding, confirms that Cho had messaged her. She says in the conversation that Cho "turned out [to be] all psycho."
