Thousands of pages of documents relating to the investigation into December 2012’s massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. have been released by the Connecticut State Police.
Text, diagrams, crime scene photos and 911 calls to state police are among the information included in the 7,000 page report released Friday. The Danbury, Conn. News-Times reports that the documents also contain previously unreleased information about what first responders saw when they first entered the school premises, which describe “in a cold, clinical way how each of the victims died and where each of the bodies was found.” No photos of the dead bodies of children, educators or of shooter Adam Lanza were included.
The documents also include, the News-Times reports, “The Big Book of Granny;” a story which Lanza had written and illustrated for a class project at 10 years of age. The creation is filled with violent images, including mentions of a school shooting.
Connecticut state police spokesman Lt. J. Paul Vance said that the release marks the end of the criminal investigation.
