Remains of US school gunman claimed for burial
The body of the man who killed 26 people in the second largest school shooting in US history has been claimed for burial.
Hartford: The body of the man who killed 26 people in the second largest school shooting in US history has been claimed for burial.
Connecticut Medical Examiner Wayne H Carver II tells the Hartford Courant newspaper that the remains of Adam Lanza were claimed several days ago by someone who wanted to remain anonymous.
A spokeswoman at Carver`s office told The Associated Press she could not release details.
The 20-year-old Lanza killed 20 children and six adults at a Connecticut school on December 14. He also killed his mother before going on the rampage and then killed himself.
Police have not offered a motive for the killings.
The attack prompted President Barack Obama to push for "real action, right now" on gun violence.
