The crazed gunman who executed two Virginia journalists on live television was planning on getting away with the murders — even going as far as making a to-do list and packing a briefcase with three license plates.

Cops who searched the car of Vester L. Flanagan II on Thursday found several items that indicated to police that he had thought he would make a clean getaway after fatally shooting Alison Parker, 24, and Adam Ward, 27, as they filmed a TV segment for the Roanoke CBS affiliate WDBJ.

Inside the Chevrolet Sonic that he rented, authorities discovered a Glock 19 pistol with multiple magazines and ammunition, a white iPhone, several letters and notes, a to-do list — and a briefcase, which contained three license plates, a wig, shawl, umbrella, sunglasses and a black hat, according to the Associated Press.

But the 41-year-old never got to use the disguises as cops tracked him down on I-66, prompting him to take his own life on Wednesday.

On Thursday, more details emerged about Flanagan’s life which depicted him as a self-absorbed fiend who lived alone in a filthy, spartan living space.

Cops searching his garden-style apartment stumbled upon unwashed sex toys, cat feces and several pictures of himself on his fridge, according to the Daily Mirror.

Images obtained by the British newspaper show that the Roanoke residence has almost no furniture, except for a leather couch and chair.
