What drove Sandy Hook shooter Adam Lanza to murder 26 people in cold blood? The answer could lie in his DNA, and now, geneticists are trying to uncover the microscopic mystery. The study will take place at the University of Connecticut, where a team of geneticists is reportedly set to examine Lanza’s DNA. The team is expected to investigate whether a special mutation is responsible for setting off the troubled 20-year-old on December 14.
The results are expected to take a few weeks. DNA or no DNA, this was one of the most gruesome days in the history of our country and no DNA test is going to make me, or anyone feel better. Perhaps it will uncover some scientific evidence but nothing can ever account for this heinous act.
But if it helps prevent future occurrences like this then I’m all for it.
