Shortly after a complete list of victims’ names was released, it was reported that Adam shot each child up to 11 times in his horrific acts of violence on Dec. 14. So sad.
Ana Marquez-Greene, 7, Jesse Lewis, 6, Grace McDonnell, 6, and Emilie Parker, 6, were just a small number of the victims who were killed by Adam Lanza, 20, on Dec. 14 at Sandy Hook Elementary School. While we already revealed a number of details about those victims, it’s now being reported that the children were shot up to 11 times during their slayings.
“The manner of death for each of the victims was homicide,” Chief Connecticut Medical Examiner H Wayne Carver said on Dec. 15. “Two of the victims were shot at extremely close range, and each child was shot between three and 11 times.”
Carver and his team were on hand at the school until 12:30AM, identifying and photographing the bodies of the victims.
Carver told reporters: “I think everybody was hit more than once.”
Thankfully, parents were not called in to identify their child’s body. Instead, recent photos were used to compare to the deceased bodies.
President Obama’s Address To A Saddened Country
On Dec. 14, President Barack Obama addressed a shaken and frightened nation, speaking not as a politician, but as a fellow parent. Overcome with his own grief, he had to take a moment to regain his composure and wipe tears from his eyes. “Tonight Michelle and I will do what I know every parent in America will do, we will hug our children a little tighter. And we will tell them that we love them,” he said.
Our thoughts remain with the victims lost, their suffering families, and the shaken community of Newtown, CT. We can’t imagine what they are feeling.
What do you think of this horrific situation, HollywoodLifers? Will this town ever recover? Will we as a nation?
