Virginia Tech Killer's Sister Speaks

April 19, 2007 — Sun-kyung Cho, the older sister of Seung-hui Cho, the man accused of carrying out the deadliest campus shooting in U.S. history, has finally come forward, according to a report in Princeton University's daily newspaper, the Daily Princetonian.

According to this report, Cho reached out to a close friend and spiritual adviser from her Princeton days, the Rev. David Kim. Kim is the director of the Manna Christian Fellowship at Princeton University.

Cho, who graduated from Princeton in 2004 with an undergraduate degree in economics, was a member of Manna, according to the report. The society's Web site describes Manna as a society that began over 10 years ago by Korean students wanting to inspire other Asian-Americans to join them in Bible study. Its Web site indicates that Manna, which literally translates to mean, "What is it?" includes members of all race, gender, religion or class who would like to better know the Gospel, but the Daily Princetonian confirms that it has historically had heavily Asian-American membership. Its members also get together for ad hoc socializing, including movies, bowling, ice-skating and eating, according to its Web site.


The university's newspaper reports that in a discussion forum organized yesterday by the Korean American Students Association (KASA) to help students cope with the tragedy, Kim told the group that Cho had called and talked to him over the phone yesterday morning.


Princeton had held a candlelight vigil in Richardson Auditorium on Tuesday night in memory of the 32 students killed at Virginia Tech the day before. According to the Daily Princetonian, several Korean students and alumni have expressed anxiety regarding a possible nationwide backlash against their community following the Virginia shootings.


According to the report, Kim told the KASA forum that when Cho called, "One of the first things she did was she apologized because she felt so bad for the Koreans on campus."

Cho's parents, who left their Centerville, Va., house Monday before media members swarmed the location, do not speak English, Kim told the Daily Princetonian. It will be up to Cho to speak publicly on behalf of her family. According to the report, Kim said that in the next few days, Cho would release a public statement on behalf of her family.






Cho is reported to have looked upon her time at Princeton as a positive experience. She filed a story for the campus newspaper and also volunteered for a Princeton organization that was formed to create social and cultural programs for young people affected by the attacks of Sept. 11.






In an interview with the Princeton Weekly Bulletin, Cho said that in 2003 she spent the "most amazing three months of my life" as an unpaid intern in the economics section of the U.S. Embassy in Bangkok. According to the online article, Cho also interned the previous summer at the State Department's international labor office. According to The AP, the Princeton graduate now works as a contractor for a State Department office, the Iraq Reconstruction Management Office, which oversees billions of dollars in American aid for Iraq. She calls herself "Sun Cho" on her work voice mail.






Cho is listed in the State Department directory as a personnel assistant at the Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs, but sources say she reports to McNeil Technologies, which is one of the many administrative/managerial support contractors used for Iraq reconstruction management projects.






Cho took a leave of absence from her job Tuesday, ABC News reported.






In an interview with the Daily Princetonian after the forum Wednesday, Kim said that Cho is "doing okay and [that] she appreciates the support of the Manna community that she knows."



He also said that though her family was in great need of support, Cho told him that rumors and media reports that her parents had attempted suicide were untrue.



He added that he wanted to respect Cho's privacy by restricting his public comments about her, emphasizing his desire not to "compromise [his] ability to support her as a friend."

According to the report, Kim said he had known Cho when she was an undergraduate at the university and described her as "one of the sweetest people."

I feel bad for her and his parents.  That dude was totally screwed up, but they're left wondering what happened to their little boy and why he did what he did.  That's not a question I'd want to take to the grave with me.

People make choices.  On occasion they make really bad choices.

Kinda sounds like your parents failed at instilling compassion and empathy.

This guy had faulty wiring. Parents are powerless against the ravages of mental illness. They could nurtured him all they wanted and it wouldn't have made one bit of differrence. He was crazy.

I've made a few bad choices.


Did I kill 32 people?

NO.

My parents did very well.

Not feeling bad for this guy doesn't make me a bad person.

You weren't commenting on him, now were you?

Condemning his parents as failures when you don't have a clue what sparked the mental problems in their grown child, well, it doesn't do ya any favors. Mental problems aren't always apparent, or even there, when a parent has the ability to deal with it.

Even the grandparents or uncle knew the kid was messed up. I'd say they knew the kid wasnt all there.

The parents might not of had the ability to deal with the problem but i don't think it would be to far to venture to say they knew he was a problem.

Cho's parents, who left their Centerville, Va., house Monday before media members swarmed the location, do not speak English, Kim told the Daily Princetonian.


On top of raising an insane POS,They've also been here for 14 years, and don't speak the language?? WTF??? My grandfather came here, and learned the language along with the other 7 he spoke fluently, and was proud to.



BTW I don't find the daughter / sister hot in the very least, was I looking at the wrong picture? I mean I saw hotter chicks than that in the army!

Also our laws make it virtually impossible for them to do anything once he turned 18.   The dirtbag was 23 years old, long past the age of Mommy and Daddy being his guardian, this crap that it was his parents fault is pure BS.   If you want to place blame on anyone, place it on the legal and medical system that had this guy committed but let him leave as an outpatient even though he had been stalking some women.   If they had done their jobs, this psychotic piece of shit would still be in a mental facility.

Not to imply anything about your Grandfather.

I think you hit the nail on the head right there. but then again, it would suck to be commited against your will. what if we locked up every angry loner.

The parents got the kid past 18 alive, not a criminal, not a drug addict and attending a very good school in the best country in the world with nothing but a bright future in front of him.

At that point the parents are a success.  What you do with your life after that is 100% up to you.

That being said, I have little doubts that his parents definetly feel they let him down.  I know if I was his Father I'd feel that I let him down somewhere along the way.  That sometime, at some point, there would, could, SHOULD have been something I should have done to keep his life from turning out this way.

But in the final count, it was the son that let the parents down.

And the school system and the local law and judicial system let the other students down too.

The whole damn tragedy was a whole lot of woulda, coulda, shoulda.  So was Columbine.  We learned nothing from that previous tragedy, hopefully we'll learn something from this one, but I ain't holding my breath.  We seem to drop the ball a lot in this country when it comes to learning lessons.

But no right thinking person would take revenge on the family or the Korean community in general.  But, as we've seen, there are a lot of wrong thinking people around.

Their parents worked hard to raise both children and send them to good schools only most of people can dream of. Is that a failure?

Also, grow up. Stop desperately looking for a non-existing connection to Islam, and read the article again. The whole family is a devoted Christian. I don't know if the murderer went to church on Sundays(probably not), but it seems like they are just like any other people in US.

If not confined to a loony bin, at least listing his insanity & crimes of stalking on his record so he couldn't lie on the gun purchase form & buy a firearm at a freaking gun shop!

I wonder how many nut job criminals are going run down to the gun shop & trying buying a gun for the hell of it, since they know there's half a chance the state records might screwed up & they get OKed by he state for a gun purchase.
