After more than two weeks of funerals for victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, the body of Adam Lanza, which has remained at the Connecticut chief medical examiner’s office, has finally been claimed for burial.
According to the office, his body was claimed, but a spokeswoman declined to say who had come. Calls to family members and a family spokesperson were not immediately returned.
Funerals were held for all 26 of Lanza’s victims in the days after the shooting. A small, private ceremony was held for his mother, Nancy Lanza, after she was claimed from authorities and he was not.
Officials are still searching for the motive behind Lanza’s rampage; the latest attempt will test his DNA for abnormalities and mutations associated with violence.
This will mark the very last funeral for deaths associated with the Newtown, Conn. shooting.
