April 20th, 1999 tape - roughly 30 minutes before The Columbine Massacre
Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold are in the family room of the Harris home. Eric is filming. Dylan is wearing a black baseball cap on backward, exposing a “B” embroidered in white on the back of the hat - the Boston Red Sox logo. He’s wearing a plaid shirt, either dark blue or black with white; the shirt’s untucked. He’s wearing black BDUs (military-style pants) tucked into military-style boots. There are several bags on the floor, including a large maroon one.
Eric:“Say it now.”
Dylan:“Hey mom. Gotta go. It’s about a half an hour before our little judgment day. I just wanted to apologize to you guys for any crap this might instigate as far as (inaudible) or something. Just know I’m going to a better place. I didn’t like life too much and I know I’ll be happy wherever the fuck I go. So I’m gone. Good-bye. Reb…”
Dylan takes the camera then and begins filming Eric. Eric’s also wearing a plaid shirt that’s either dark blue or black with white, with a white t-shirt on underneath. His lower half can’t be seen.
Eric:“Yea… Everyone I love, I’m really sorry about all this. I know my mom and dad will be just like.. just fucking shocked beyond belief. I’m sorry, all right. I can’t help it.”
Dylan: (interrupts) “We did what we had to do.”
Eric:“Morris, Nate, if you guys live, I want you guys to have whatever you want from my room and thecomputer room.”
Dylan adds that they can have his things as well.
Eric:“Susan, sorry. Under different circumstances it would’ve been a lot different. I want you to have that fly CD.”
Eric: (eventually) “That’s it. Sorry. Goodbye.”
Dylan: (sticks his face in the camera) “Goodbye.”
The tape ends with a brief glimpse of a sign on the wall of Eric’s bedroom, someone’s arm partially blocking it from sight. It’s the letters: CHS along with a drawing of a bomb with a lit fuse and, in bold black letters, the word “clue”. Eric and Dylan then went to Columbine High School and killed 15 people, including themselves.
