Police file to be released on Newtown shooting
NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — The planned release of thousands of pages of state police documents from the investigation into last year’s Newtown school massacre could shed light on the world of the 20-year-old gunman.
State police said their report totaling several thousand pages will be released at 3 p.m. Friday. The report “has been redacted according to law,” and includes text, photos and 911 calls received by state police, they said Thursday.
Prosecutors issued a summary of the investigation last month that portrayed the gunman, Adam Lanza, as obsessed with mass murders, but the report concluded that Lanza’s motives for the massacre might never be known.
The summary report referred to items found on a computer at Lanza’s house that included writings that detail relationships, personal beliefs, a daily schedule, desires, goals and other topics.
