Alleged California church shooter apparently sent documents to the newspaper

Seven volumes of handwritten notes apparently sent by a man accused of fatally shooting a doctor and injuring five people at a Taiwanese church in Laguna Woods were in the mail this week to a Chinese-language newspaper office in Los Angeles. Get down

West Covina’s lawyer Maxwell Lin, representing the World Journal, said late Wednesday that the papers appeared to be in diary form, photocopied and written in Chinese. Some pages were loose. Others were tied to black clips, Lin said.

They arrived at the newspaper’s office late Monday evening in a box with the Daily Mail and were delivered late Tuesday. The mailing label was marked with “David Chow” along with a Las Vegas return address.

Accused shooter David Wenwei Chow is a resident of Las Vegas and is in custody on charges of capital murder in Sunday’s shooting at a Geneva Presbyterian church, which also houses a church in Taiwan.

Lin said he has custody of the papers and will share it with law enforcement upon submission of a summons. He said that the police have not contacted him yet.

“We have no intention of stopping anything,” Lin said.

Orange County Sheriff’s Department spokeswoman Carrie Braun said the agency is aware of the documents but would not comment further.

Lin could not confirm media reports that the papers were entitled, “Diary of the Angel Who Destroyed Freedom.”

“The document will speak for itself, but how you say it is up to a reporter’s interpretation,” Lin said.

He had not read the long document in its entirety nor believed it was even in the newspaper.

“Time will tell how important[the papers are],” Lin said.

Law enforcement officers continue to investigate the motive for the shooting and how the shooter chose the specific time and location for the attack.

Orange County Sheriff Don Barnes said Monday that Chow was motivated by his hatred of Taiwan.

The Associated Press reported that Chow had reportedly recently expressed hatred of his roommate.

Jordyn Davis of Las Vegas told the Associated Press that Chow said he thinks Taiwan’s government is corrupt and dislikes how the island’s people are sympathetic to the leadership.

“He made himself appear as if he was basically a political refugee,” Davis said.

Chow, a US citizen who worked for years as a security guard, moved into a four-bedroom house in Las Vegas in February. Davis, his roommate, said that Chow often shared his meals, usually chicken dishes, and lived a routine: “Come home, go to sleep, take a shower, go to work and just repeat.”
