Was Cho severely abused as a child? 

From Time:

Consider only what we know so far:

Some time during the first semester of the 2005-06 academic year, English professor Lucinda Roy told campus police that she was worried about Cho's bizarre writings. We don't know exactly what Cho wrote that concerned Roy — the university is, shamefully, withholding that information [shamefully indeed - and if they are withholding it, it smells like a nice cover-up of something to me]

— but we do know, thanks to a former classmate who works at AOL, that Cho wrote two plays strongly suggesting that he might have been raped when he was a boy and that he had intense revenge fantasies. ("Must kill Dick. Must kill Dick. Dick must die," the protagonist in one play says.)
