Investigation Report

  • Grassroots Gratitude

    As the people of Newtown prepared for their Thanksgiving celebrations this week, the community once again found itself in the spotlight. This time, the nation’s attention was drawn to the release on Monday of a long-anticipated report by the state’s attorney investigating the 12/14 shootings at the Sandy Hook School — the event for which no one gives thanks.

  • Officials React To The Release Of Sandy Hook Report

    First Selectman Pat Llodra was among a number of officials issuing brief reactions in the wake of the state's attorney's report on the 12/14 tragedy.

    Mrs Llodra observed that "much of the detail in the report is presented in such a factual, neutral way that it almost felt unreal, sanitized somehow, and not really a telling of the horror that unfolded on that awful day."

    The first selectman said the document for the most part offered few new insights for her, until she came to the parts that shed some light on the person of Adam Lanza, and of his mother Nancy Lanza.

  • Long-Awaited 12/14 Report Offers Details, But No Motive

    Although it is clear that the 20-year-old local man who shot and killed 26 people at Sandy Hook School on December 14, 2012, had “significant mental health issues” and had “an obsession with mass murders, in particular the Columbine shootings,” a motive for Adam Lanza’s horrific actions has not been established, according to a prosecutor’s summary report on the incident.

  • 12/14 Crime Report Release Due Monday

    The long-awaited investigatory report on the 12/14 shootings at Sandy Hook School, in which 20 first-graders and six adults died, is expected to be released on Monday, November 25, according to notifications received by local officials.

    That report had been expected to be disclosed earlier this year, but its author, State’s Attorney Stephen J. Sedensky III, repeatedly has said that the release of details of the investigation would have to await the completion of the full report

  • Superintendent’s Letter Anticipates 12/14 Report Release

    Interim Superintendent of Schools John Reed sent a letter home to district parents on Tuesday, November 19, in advance of an anticipated release of an investigatory report on the shootings of 12/14 at Sandy Hook School.

    The report is expected to be released on Monday, November 25, according to notifications received by local officials. Further details on the report are available here.

  • 12/14 Report Release May Not Be Until October

    Those awaiting the release of the long-awaited public investigatory report on the criminal actions of Adam Lanza, who shot and killed 28 people including himself in Sandy Hook last December 14, likely will need to wait somewhat longer than initially thought, possibly until October.

    State police spokesman Lieutenant J. Paul Vance said May 29 that the release of that report sometime in June is unlikely, with its disclosure coming at some later point. Lt Vance declined to say when that might be.
