RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — The Associated Press has learned that missing mental health records for the Virginia Tech gunman have been discovered in the home of the former director of the university’s counseling center.

Seung-Hui Cho killed 32 people on April 16, 2007, then committed suicide as police closed in. His mental health treatment has been a major issue in the investigation of the shootings.

A memo from Gov. Tim Kaine’s chief legal counsel says Cho’s records and those of several other Virginia Tech students were found July 18 in the home of Dr. Robert H. Miller.

The memo to families of the massacre victims said the records were removed from the Cook Counseling Center on the Virginia Tech campus more than a year before the shootings.

The recovery of the records, which eluded a vast criminal investigation two years ago, was announced first on Wednesday by Gov. Tim Kaine.
