Newtown Search Warrants to Remain Sealed
A judge in Connecticut today extended the time period 5 search warrants executed on the Lanza's home and cars will remain sealed. There were three search warrants for the house and two for cars.
[One was] for the 2010 Honda Civic Adam Lanza drove to the school and [the other was] for Nancy Lanza's 2009 silver BMW, which was parked in the garage attached to the home.
Why keep the search warrants sealed if no one is under criminal investigation? [More...]
[Danbury State's Attorney Stephen ]Sedensky said in his applications that the affidavits contained information "not known to the general public" and that premature disclosure would "seriously jeopardize the outcome and success of the investigation" by "divulging sensitive and confidential information" known only to investigators.
Although no arrests have been made and "none are contemplated," Sedensky also said the possibility has not been ruled out, and that releasing the information would make it difficult to solve crimes that others might have committed.
What crimes besides the shootings were committed by others that remain to be solved? Did they uncover communications between Adam Lanza and persons claiming to have committed or be planning other violent crimes?
