Virginia Tech probe criticized
by UPI

FAIRFAX, Va. - Relatives of the Virginia Tech University shooting victims said they aren't satisfied with the way the state of Virginia is investigating the April 16 massacre.

A spokesman for some of the victims' families voiced a number of complaints during a public hearing held Monday by the eight-member committee charged with studying the incident, USA Today reported.

Peter Read, whose daughter died in the shootings, urged the committee to release the mental health records of Cho Seung-hui, who killed 32 students and faculty members and himself in the deadliest campus shooting in U.S. history.

Speaking for 13 of the victims' families, Read called for adding a family representative to the state panel.

"We are of one mind that we must, and will, be represented by membership in the work of this panel," said Read speaking for 13 of the 32 victims' families.

On Wednesday, U.S. President George Bush is to receive a federal report he ordered on the shootings.
