FBI releases Sandy Hook files

Adam Lanza was in “complete denial of his disease” and never took his medication, according to a document released Tuesday by the FBI about the 20-year-old shooter in the Sandy Hook massacre.

Lanza, who had Asperger’s syndrome, had become so withdrawn in late 2012 that he had not left his Newtown home in three months, and his mother was concerned about him, said the document, which was released along with 1,500 pages related to the FBI’s investigation of the worst crime in Connecticut history.

On Dec. 14, 2012, Lanza killed his mother, took her AR-15-style rifle from an unlocked closet, shot out the entrance windows of Sandy Hook School, a killed 20 first-graders and six educators.

“Two law enforcement officials arrived during the shooting, at which time the suspect ducked into a classroom and shot himself,” another FBI document reads.

Many of the documents released Tuesday had sections blocked out to conceal identities. The documents range from evidence logs and subpoenas to transcripts of interviews that were conducted in Lanza’s neighborhood.
