Sandy Hook Shooter Adam Lanza’s Belongings to Be Released to Public
The Connecticut Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that the belongings of Sandy Hook shooter Adam Lanza must be released to the public. State police seized Lanza’s belongings, including his personal journals, following the 2012 massacre and refused The Hartford Courant’s request to view them. Tuesday’s ruling found the court in favor of the Courant and the state Freedom of Information Commission, whose request to view the belongings was previously overturned by a lower court judge. Among the belongings are reportedly violent stories Lanza authored as well as a spreadsheet ranking mass murders. It was not clear when the items will be released. Lanza, 20, shot and killed 20 first-graders and six educators at Sandy Hook Elementary School in December of 2012.
