Metro Nashville attorney Lora Fox confirmed on Tuesday there is no objection to the release of documents found in the car of Covenant School shooter Audrey Hale with limited redactions.

Fox told Chancery Court Judge I’Ashea L. Myles that the Metro Nashville Police Department (MNPD) maintains the position previously articulated by Assistant Chief Mike Hagar in an affidavit declaring that a redacted version of the manifesto could be released without harming MNPD investigations.
