Town votes to demolish Sandy Hook killer’s Connecticut home

NEWTOWN, Conn. (Reuters) – The town council of Newtown, Connecticut, voted unanimously on Wednesday to demolish the home of the 20-year-old man who killed 26 children and staff at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012 in one of the deadliest school shootings in U.S. history.

By a vote of 12-0, the council agreed that the white colonial-style house of the gunman, Adam Lanza, be razed under a plan that would preserve the lot as open space for the short term.

Lanza shot and killed his mother, Nancy Lanza, on Dec. 14, 2012, at the house shortly before driving to the school to continue his shooting spree, which ended with him killing himself.
