The Connecticut State Police today released thousands of pages worth of reports from their investigation into the Dec. 14, 2012, shooting in Newtown that claimed 26 lives.
The state Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection, which includes the state police division, posted more than 840 pdf files of written reports, 22 additional files of photographs and dozens of audio and video attachments, along with a cover letter from Commissioner Reuben Bradford, on the department’s website.
The report comes just over one year after Adam Lanza shot and killed 20 first-graders and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Lanza, 20, who earlier had killed his 52-year-old mother, Nancy, took his own life with a 10mm-Glock, one of two handguns and a semiautomatic rifle he carried into the school with nearly 20 pounds of ammunition.
The new report includes hundreds of photographs from the two crime scenes. There are pictures of elementary school classrooms decorated with children’s artwork and words like “Hopes and dreams” in big cut-out letters on the walls, and a charity “hat drive” box. There are also pictures of bullet holes in classroom windows, guns, bullets and the shattered glass door where Lanza shot his way into the school.
