Peter Lanza issues a statement, ‘We too are asking why’ New Photos of Victims Released

Peter Lanza, the father of the Connecticut shooter, Adam Lanza, wasn’t even aware of the events that were transpiring at Sandy Hook Elementary or the murder of his ex-wife. Peter Lanza had to receive the tragic news from a Stamford Advocate reporter at his house.

Now the father issues a statement, echoing the sentiment of Americans – why?

“Our hearts go out to the families and friends who lost loved ones and to all those who were injured. Our family is grieving along with all those who have been affected by this enormous tragedy. No words can truly express how heartbroken we are. We are in a state of disbelief and trying to find whatever answers we can. We too are asking why. We have cooperated fully with law enforcement and will continue to do so. Like so many of you, we are saddened, but struggling to make sense of what has transpired.”

Below are some photos released of the victims. There is a page on Facebook for the Emilie Parker fund – here. Please email us and we will links to similar outreaches once they come online.
