WCSU Releases 2009 Lanza Photo
NEWTOWN, Conn. (AP) _ A photo of the gunman who killed 20 first-graders and six adults at a Newtown, Conn., elementary school has been released by the college he attended several years ago.
The college identification photo of a wide-eyed Adam Lanza was released by Western Connecticut State University in Danbury in response to a records request by the media.
Among the newly released records, Lanza responded “none” to a question asking if he had any documented disabling condition.
The 20-year-old, who went on a shooting rampage at Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dec. 14, was said to have been diagnosed with Asperger’s, a disorder not associated with violence.
Lanza took his last class at the college in 2009. He declined to answer questions in 2008 about his gender and how he described himself.
