FBI releases Sandy Hook files

October 24, 2017 GMT

DANBURY - Officials with the FBI have released more than 1,200 pages of documents related to their investigation into the Sandy Hook shooting that took the lives of 20 first-grade students and six educators at the school.

The FBI released the information Tuesday morning in three separate files, each containing more than 500 pages of information that was largely redacted of names and addresses of those interviewed by FBI agents shortly after the shooting on Dec. 14, 2012.

A preliminary search of some of the documents reveal that Adam Lanza, the shooter, was a vegan who was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome - a condition that is now considered part of the Autism Spectrum.

Nancy Lanza, his mother who was also killed, also volunteered regularly at the schools and at a local women’s shelter, the documents state. Those interested in looking at the files can check them out here.
