Investigators Recover Lanza Computer Data
Investigators have succeeded in recovering some data from one of the damaged hard drives in a computer used by Adam Lanza and have subpoenaed computers of people they believe were in contact with the Sandy Hook mass murderer, a law enforcement source said Friday.
Another smashed hard drive is still being reconstructed by technicians with the U.S. Department of Defense, the source said.
Authorities are particularly interested in what relationships Lanza had within the online and video game community, hoping there may be clues about what provoked him to shoot his mother to death, then kill 20 first-graders and six educators at Sandy Hook Elementary School on the morning of Dec. 14.
Earlier in their investigation, State Police found a trove of violent gaming material at the Newtown home Lanza shared with his mother, Nancy.
Lanza attempted to destroy the computer hard drives either on the day of the shootings or shortly earlier.
