On this day in 1999…
The official death toll was released by 8am. The bodies were removed from the school through the afternoon and late evening, taken to the Jefferson County Coroner’s Office to be identified and autopsied. When the shooters’ bodies were brought out of the school, an unseasonable blizzard began though the day had started warm and sunny. By 5:00 PM the identities of the dead were becoming known.
