The body of Adam Lanza was claimed. Adam Lanza was the gun man who slaughtered 20 children and six adults at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut. He also murdered his mother and later committed suicide inside the school. In a report dated Dec. 31, the person who claimed the body of Adam Lanza wants to remain anonymous.
The Chicago Tribune also reported that Wayne H. Carver II, the Stated Medical Examiner, ruled Adam Lanza's death a suicide. Although Adam Lanza's death was ruled a suicide, the medical examiner did toxicology tests. The results of those tests are still pending.
"It is so sad how all of this turned out," Ryan Gibbs, from Oklahoma City, said. "Everyone is a victim. Hate that word. I guess 'survivor' would be better, but so many kids were killed. People don't survive this. They just put one foot in front of the other and try to go on."
Carver also sent Adam Lanza's Dna to the University of Connecticut to be studied. Carver is hoping that geneticists will be able to find some of abnormalities that could explain why Adam Lanza committed mass murder.
At the time of publication, it was unknown if Peter Lanza, Adam Lanza's father, was the one who claimed the body. Peter Lanza was Adam Lanza's next of kin and a family member normally claims the deceased.
