NEW HAVEN – A federal grand jury in New Haven has returned an indictment against a Tennessee man, charging him with six counts of wire fraud for allegedly defrauding contributors to an organization that he established after the December 14, 2012, Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings.
HARTFORD — A US District Court judge on Thursday, February 12, sentenced a Venezuelan man to 12 months and one day of imprisonment, to be followed by three years of probation, for making threatening phone calls to residents of Newtown shortly after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting tragedy in December 2012.
I have been following the news stories about the Lanza home, which has been given to the town and is scheduled for demolition. As a former 35 year resident of Sandy Hook and Newtown, I’m thinking it would be a wonderful and healing idea to rename Yogananda Street to something more refreshing that wouldn’t always be connected to the Adam Lanza tragedy. Perhaps then there wouldn’t be so many curious people driving by the site to take pictures.
The Board of Selectmen unanimously agreed January 5 to recommend to the Legislative Council that the 36 Yogananda Street residence once occupied by Sandy Hook Elementary School shooter Adam Lanza be demolished.
The residence was also the site where Lanza murdered his mother, Nancy, before traveling to the local elementary school and perpetrating one of the worst school shootings in US history.
BRIDGEPORT — The estates of nine of 26 people who were killed and one teacher who was injured in the December 14, 2012, shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School are the plaintiffs in a negligence and wrongful death lawsuit lodged against the manufacturer, the distributor, and the seller of the semiautomatic Bushmaster AR-15 rifle, which a 20-year-old gunman used in the murders.
Koskoff, Koskoff & Bieder, PC, of Bridgeport filed the lawsuit December 15 in Bridgeport Superior Court. The court return date for the defendants is February 3.
The negligence and wrongful death lawsuit filed in Bridgeport Superior Court December 13 by a survivor and the families of nine of the 26 people killed two years ago at Sandy Hook Elementary School hopes to move the discussion of guns and gun violence away from the politically charged precincts of legislative hearings, social media and other freewheeling forums (yes, editorials too) into the more ordered setting of a court room.
