Welcome to the oldest Columbine research site on the Internet. This archive is dedicated to the injured victims, the survivors, and those who died in the Columbine High School shooting in Littleton, Colorado, on April 20, 1999. This website deals with the grim facts of what happened that day. It's a factual examination of the actions of Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, and the consequences that have followed.

25 years worth of information is archived here as well as photos, video and news clips, interviews, and much more. Read about the Basement Tapes, Columbine High, the survivors and the dead. There are photos, video and audio clips, links to books and films about Columbine, the victims and survivors. You'll also find copies of the shooters' journals and AOL profiles, REB's Doom II wads and websites, thousands of official documents such as autopsies, the Columbine Report, and much more. Everything that happened before, during, and after the tragic massacre is archived here, so we'll never forget. If you're looking for information about the Columbine shooting because you are doing research or just want to know what happened, proceed... with caution. Some content is graphic and disturbing.

Columbine tulip - healing and renewal
We have a release date for the books: July 4th, 2024. One is titled: A Columbine Book - Who. What. Where. When. Why?. This is a complete recount of what happened on April 20th, 1999, along with a section that examines the role of other people, first responders, and medical as well as the ballistics and some of the conspiracies and inaccuracies reported in the early day. It also includes a thorough timeline that spans over 100 years. The other book is titled: A Columbine Book: We Are All Columbine - 25 Years of Healing. It examines what has happened since the shooting, how the survivors and their families have fared, and how they continue to heal. It also includes a narrative about my visit to the school and the Columbine area during the 25th anniversary and what I learned from the people I met.

Both will be available on Amazon as physical books and in eBook format. I am also looking at finding a way to publish the first book to my website as a free-to-access digital book. I really want the reference to be free to the world. Profits from the sales of these books will go to charity.

Got most of the top-level pages updated for better display on mobile. Eventually the rest will follow. I added some photos to the Officials page and the Yearbook page while I was there.

Book news: I will be publishing 2 books at the same time. One is a 25-year retrospective/update book that includes information I picked up while in Colorado. The other is a reference book suitable for citing in essays and lesson plans. The 2nd book will be available for purchase in hard copy format (for citation and archival purpose), and will be free in eBook format. The free version will be on Amazon and on this site, to ensure a copy of it remains free to the public regardless of where you're at in the world. Both books should be available before the end of the month.

My trip to the Littleton area was very inspiring. I am honored to have met and spoken with so many amazing people and to have been welcomed with open arms, quite literally. It's currently almost midnight on April 20, 2024 this 25th year (which is why this is dated for the 21st), so I'm going to keep this update short. I have more to say, but it will hold till I've gotten some sleep.

Another reader asked about the FBI report. Apparently I didn't link it to the Reports page. The 1,756 page document is now linked alongside 320 deleted pages. I also added files having to do with the "missing" Guerra report that I neglected to upload.

It was brought to my attention that CSS3 made my old mobile formatting obsolete. Sorry about that. I'm in the process of converting the site over so it'll show correctly on mobile devices again, but it's going to take some time to get all the pages fixed up. Also, because I'm focusing mostly on just getting the whole page to show (or scroll where necessary), some sections may look a little clunky (especially ones that have a lot of photos). I'll pretty them up later when everything's converted to the new format.
