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.
