Monday 31 December 2012
The body of the man who killed 26 people at a Connecticut primary school has been claimed for burial.
Connecticut Medical Examiner Wayne H Carver II told the Hartford Courant that the remains of Adam Lanza were claimed several days ago by someone who wanted to remain anonymous.
A spokeswoman at Mr Carver's office told the Associated Press she could not release details about the status of Lanza's body.
The 20-year-old killed 20 first-graders and six members of staff at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown on December 14.
He also killed his mother, Nancy, at their home before going on the rampage and then committing suicide.
A private funeral for Mrs Lanza was held in New Hampshire earlier this month.
Police have not offered a motive for the killings.
