The failed TV reporter who shot two journalists during a live broadcast had a wig, six magazines of ammunition, and a to-do list in his escape car before he killed himself, according to an inventory of items found in the search warrant return.
Inside his $600 per month apartment, police found old pictures of Vester Flanagan all over the scarcely decorated apartment.
In addition to the wig and ammunition, police found 17 stamped letters, three license plats in a briefcase, a shawl, and an umbrella in Flanagan's rental car.
According to a probable cause affidavit filed to search Flanagan's car, police said Flanagan texted a friend "making reference to having done something stupid" following the shooting of WDBJ reporter Alison Parker, photographer Adam Ward, and local chamber of commerce director Vicki Gardner, who was also shot and survived.

Jurors have begun deliberating whether a graduate of an elite New Hampshire prep school raped a freshman as part of a tradition of sexual conquest called Senior Salute.
The jury got the case Thursday afternoon after closing arguments and instructions from the judge.
