Almost a year after Adam Lanza stormed the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut and killed 20 children and six adults before taking his own life, a report on the investigation will be released to the public, according to prosecutors overseeing the case. The report will be published on the website of Connecticut's Division of Criminal Justice, www.ct.gov/csao.
There has been some confusion about what evidence police collected from Adam Lanza's residence after the shooting; with some news outlets portraying the troubled man as a crazed gamer who was addicted to Call of Duty. There has never been any proof that Lanza played Call of Duty to-date.
Some information will not be released to the public, like visual images of the victims. In fact, the state of Connecticut passed a law after the tragedy prohibiting the release of photographs, film, video and other visual images showing a homicide victim if they can "reasonably be expected to constitute an unwarranted invasion of personal privacy of the victim or the victim's surviving family members."
Earlier this week an indie game developer sparked national outrage with a Flash game ('The Slaying of Sandy Hook Elementary') that let players participate in the Dec. 14, 2012 shooting. The developer claimed that the game was meant to raise awareness about the lack of real gun control laws in the United States. Politicians on both side of the aisle said, among other things, that the game was horrific, in poor taste, and generally offensive.
Our hearts go out to the victims of this horrible crime and the community of Newtown, who still mourn the loss of their loved ones.
