Report: Connecticut Shooting Was Revenge Killing
Chief Connecticut Medical Examiner H. Wayne Carver has released the names of those killed by 20-year-old Adam Lanza on December 14. Besides proving anew that the lives of far too many innocent people were taken by a cold blooded criminal, the report suggests that the killings were carried out in an act of revenge.
According to the report, Lanza shot the 20 child victims -- eight boys and 12 girls -- at close range and shot each victim between three and eleven times.
Other reports indicate that Lanza "visited Sandy Hook Elementary the day before [the shooting] and was involved in an altercation with four members of the staff of the school." Three of those four are now dead.
People who knew Lanza have said his mother expected a lot from him, "that she pushed him really hard to be smarter and work harder in school." He killed his mother before killing the school staff members he allegedly fought with; he then ultimately took his rage out on the children.
