    Also, when her body is released, who has the legal authority to plan for its disposition -- burial or cremation or something else? Since she's divorced, I'm assuming her adult son is her legal next-of-kin, but he's a young guy who may have no idea what to do or how to do it. He's dealing with a lot of emotions right now, too. I hope the family is able to pull together a way to honor her memory without making it a media event.

    It is surprising to me that he would care about his hard drive being found, if he knew in fact he planned to die that day.
    Just my opinion, of course.

    Doesn't surprise me. If he didn't even like to have his photo taken, then he wouldn't want people to be digging through his computer.
    Just my opinion

    I am mostly a lurker here, love the work you people at WS due - outstanding and always up-to-date.

    I keep reading like everyone else, sick of heart, and wanting to know what drove this "shooter" to do such a thing. I just read that he wasn't on any medication they think and I have to ask myself "Where is his father in all this"? Shouldn't his father be able to give some in-sight. I know they were divorced, but did he spend anytime with his son?

    Maybe some of you are right about bombs:

    Before law-enforcement officers entered the large colonial home Lanza shared with his mother, they used a robot to search for explosive devices. “There was no indication of booby traps,” said the source.
    much more at link:

    Since AL smashed the computers, spent most of his time on them, and appeared very bright, I am now wondering if he wiped the hard drives before smashing. I hope not, or if he did, I hope he was unaware that most of the free programs for that do not work so well and trained specialists can find whatever he did not want them to.

    Unless I have included a link, it is my opinion and only my opinion that I am expressing.

    There was a quote in the previous thread saying that the killer took the divorce hard and refused all contact with his father after the divorce although the father was trying. So I don't imagine that he knows much about what was going on very recently.

    I wonder if the smashing of the hard drives was symbolic somehow. He didn't go quite as far as throw away the pieces in an unrelated dumpster or a ditch or a bush somewhere; that would have made almost 100% certain that the police never find the pieces, let alone dig up any information on those destroyed hard drives.

    A source close to the Lanza family tells NBC News that Connecticut school shooter Adam Lanza had cut off communication with his father, Peter Lanza, and refused to see him. NBC’s Jeff Rossen reports.
    It's my opinion if no link provided.

    IMO, Seems, AL had meticulously pre-planned this horrific crime, right down to his intended child victims; the most vulnerable and innocent among us. The Sandy Hook CT elementary school shooting wasn't an impulsive act, imo, indicated by his attempt to purchase weapons days before, murdering his mom; NL preceding the attack, and concluding his evil, savage, and extremely sadistic act..
    We are all trying to make sense of this senseless act. Not sure that we will ever know the why. Recently when prolific serial killer Israel Keyes, was asked by interrogators why he killed. His response was, "why not"...

    What's sad is that are parents who buy the games and don't monitor the usage.

    I think a bigger factor in this case was the fact that Adam was withdrawn from school. I hope his IEP and MDT reports are released.

    Jumping off your post ...

    I wonder if there is a "prepper's" list of suggested items to store?

    There are very many lists, and thousands of websites. The lists can be extremely extensive and could include weapons and bullet proof vests depending on which side of "prepper" you are on.
