Newtown Shooter is Described as Isolated in Youth

Connecticut Attorney General George Jepsen wants a judge to order Newtown school officials to release Lanza’s school records. The child advocate’s office first sought Lanza’s school records in March, but Newtown school officials have not released the information.

District officials did not immediately return a phone message left Monday.

Lanza killed his mother at their home, then killed 20 first-graders and six educators at Sandy Hook Elementary School before killing himself as police officers arrived.

The child advocate’s office has subpoenaed many records, not just school documents, Vos Winkel said.

“I think we have an obligation to at least conduct a review to the extent that we can to collect information to say, what are the lessons potentially to be learned here?” Vos Winkel said. “We hope there is something to learn and we’re going to look very hard to see what it is.”

A prosecutor said this month that a report on the investigation into the shooting will not be available until the fall. Authorities have not disclosed a possible motive for the massacre, which sparked new legislation in Connecticut and beyond on issues including gun control and school safety.
