CT Police Set to Release Sandy Hook Investigative Report


Several thousand pages of police documents from the investigation into last year’s school massacre in Newtown, Conn., will be released at 3 p.m. Friday, the Associated Press reports. Connecticut state police said the report “has been redacted according to law,” and includes text, photos and 911 calls received by state police. Prosecutors issued a summary of the investigation last month that portrayed the gunman, Adam Lanza, as obsessed with mass murders, but the report concludes that Lanza’s motives for the massacre might never be known.

Lanza gunned down 20 first-graders and six educators with a semi-automatic rifle at Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dec. 14, 2012, after killing his mother inside their home. He committed suicide with a handgun as police arrived at the school. The summary says the 20-year-old Lanza had “significant mental health issues.”
