Report supports razing Sandy Hook gunman’s house

NEWTOWN, Conn. (WTNH) — The non-profit organization charged with distributing the flood of donations received in the wake of the Sandy Hook shooting says the public supports purchasing and razing the former home of gunman Adam Lanza and building a park or nature preserve in its place.

The Newtown-Sandy Hook Community Foundation, Inc., released a report that outlines its key concerns for those impacted by the Dec. 14, 2012 shooting. The findings reflect answers from the more than 1,600 respondents of a community survey, the group said.

The report also lists among its concerns:

  • Lack of mental health services for victims’ families
  • Lack of awareness of what services are available
  • Need for more school security measures and improvements.
