Governor’s Newtown Panel Wants Yet More Documents

newtown1-300x192Members of a commission appointed by Gov. Dannel P. Malloy to review the Newtown school massacre say they need more information and documentation about the shooter and his mental health.

State police recently released thousands of pages of documents stemming from their investigation. But the chairman of the Sandy Hook Advisory Commission says the panel still doesn’t have enough original documents, such as records of treatment 20-year-old Adam Lanza might have received.

Hamden Mayor Scott Jackson says the commission needs to understand the story of Lanza and his mother, but “we really don’t have it.”

Dr. Harold Schwartz is a commission member. He says every incremental piece of information can be helpful in improving the mental health system and potentially better understanding the minds of mass murderers and their development.
