“A comprehensive examination of the medical history of Adam Lanza, who fatally shot 26 people at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., two years ago, has concluded that he was ‘completely untreated in the years before the shooting’ for various psychiatric and physical ailments,” according to the New York Times. His school also failed to provide appropriate “social-emotional support” and other services, stated the report, while Lanza frequently used guns, exhibited an “atypical preoccupation with violence,” and participated in an online “micro society of mass murder enthusiasts.”
The complete report has been posted online by the Times.
