Tech killer was 'obsessed' with girl who had new boyfriend (New info)
Timed of London ^ | 4/17/2007

Posted on 04/17/2007 12:41:47 PM PDT by Rutles4Ever

Her smile shines out of the pictures posted on the Facebook website under the title of “Why Emily Hilscher was cooler than me”.

The girl who is believed to have obsessed the Virginia Tech killer, Cho Seung-Hui - and may have been his first victim - had a lot of friends. More than 200 had posted tributes on the website today.

Ella Miller, an old class mate, wrote: “I remember her untieing my shoes with a fork, when we played in the woods around her house in the club house, going to the beach with her and her family. Spending the night at her house and staying up late playing cards, her teaching me how to play the saxaphone, summer crab feasts, swimming in the river, jumping on trampolines in the rain, backstreet boys concert, her putting worms on her nose lol...and it wasn’t just her personality - she was gorgeous!!”

Photographs on the same website show a pretty young woman, preparing for a toga party, going on an 8th grade field trip, and arriving at her high school prom. Described as a straight “A” student, Ms Hilscher, 18, spent most of her free time horse riding and hoped to become a vet.

”I’m interested in pretty much everything,” she wrote on her MySpace page, in which she refers to herself as “The Pixie”.

She added: “My friends are what keeps me smiling. I’m into snowboard, riding and music. Give me something I can bang my head to or dance like crazy, and I’m all over it.”

Ms Hilscher had met a new boyfriend, about whom she gushed about on her page. “I live, love and get booted but eventually that will change...I now have a wonderful guy who is hopefully going to change all of that.” College friends said her new boyfriend had just dropped her off before the massacre.

Ms Hilscher, a first year student who was studying animal and poultry sciences and equine science, was the next-door neighbour of Ryan Clark, a residential adviser at the dormitory where the shooting started.

It is believed that a morning argument in the dormitory at the Virginia Tech campus led Cho to kill the teenager and Mr Clark who had attempted to come to her aid.

Her grandmother, Merle Hilscher, 71, described the tight bond Emily had with big sister Erica, 21, who attended a nearby university. “They were very close all their lives,” she said.

“Now one of them is ended, but we have to carry on.”

On her Facebook tribute page today, Cody Yager wrote: “Emily was one of my first friends here at [Virginia] Tech. How could such a beautiful soul be removed from our lives?”

Will Sonnett from Rappahannock County High School in rural Virginia, said: “Emily Hilscher was cooler than me because she could make friends with a glance and a smile. She never hesitated to make someone, anyone feel at home with kindness and an open mind. Thanks for being awesome to lame little 8th graders, and for making stupid computer classes unforgettable.”

You’re very strange.

Coming from you, I'll take that as a compliment.

That's the only reason I've been fighting this guy. "Answer a fool as his folly deserves, so that he will not be wise in his own eyes."

That would be EVERY OTHER news story not from Europe since this whole thing moved past an apparent domestic dispute to an obvious psycho rampage. People don’t shoot 40+ people because their girlfriend cheated on them, and saying they did is blaming the victim, it’s sleazy, it’s disgusting, it’s eurotrash and if you had any sense you’d feel shame at even THINKING such a thing much less posting it and defending the position.

It's still true at my university, but a lot of people can't afford to move off campus. Those guys tend to stay on campus. Staying on campus, in and of itself, doesn't mark him as "weird." It's the whole picture that does.

What a shame. Two great-looking kids, full of life; smart; everything going for them. What a tragic loss for all of us. Only God knows what great things they might have accomplished. We will never know; and this goes for many of the others as well. I just think about that one prof, Granata, a native of Toledo, OH. That guy was working on important stuff about Cerebral Palsy. What a senseless loss.

and wouldn't a senior do almost anything to avoid rooming with a freshman?..unless..no upperclassman, who knew of him, would room with him...if that's the case, and I suspect it is..then they did a near criminal act to the freshman they stuck in with him...I can hear the conversation now.

"We have this really weird senior..no one knows, or likes him..no one will room with him, but we can't have a bed go to waste, so let's stick in this unsuspecting freshman.."

This girl was not really into the myspace thing, but it is a real shame she posted such incoherent drivel for all to see.

She should have worn a burkah. Just kidding. Folks have a right to engage in social interaction, w/o having creeps violate their right to do so, and that's what those blogs are.

Cho needed his clock cleaned a long time ago. His stalking and arson should have earned him some jail time. That, along with his known psych problems should have resulted in having his guns grabbed, before he could escalate the matter.

“You don’t know the first thing about me.

And not only are you quick to judge my intentions but to judge my faith”

It takes some nerve posting that after you have ascertained from a personal homepage that a murdered young woman was “easy” etc etc.

Whoa.

what caused this slaughter

A deranged young man with emotional problems caused this slaughter...not the girl, not infidelity, not sluttiness or any of the other things you have implied on this thread. THOSE are a separate issue. I don't know if you realize it, but you just gave away something I am not sure you even realize.

Doubt it. Take a look at how many kids have profiles on Myspace or Facebook. Hell, I have a Facebook profile - my graduate student association uses Facebook for some official communications.

Who's talking about rights? I'm talking about a bad habit people--young people, esp--have gotten into. It's a kind of recklessness. A right to be reckless? Sure.

Like I said, I really hate this internet habit that people have started, being reckless with their own privacy.

On who...you are the deranged young man?

Listen, your statement clearly indicates that you are looking for what caused this slaughter. A deranged young man did. Period. ANYTHING could have set him off. To look to the victims for an explanation is a denial of the responsibility of the gunman.

It is EXACTLY the same thing as asking the US “Why did those Al Quaeda Islamists go off on you?” Perfection is not required for one to be the victim of evil. If it was, we would all be completely responsible for whatever happens to us. Most of the time we are, but there are times when we are not.
