One of the teachers gunned down in Sandy Hook Elementary may have been more helpless than others.

Lauren Rousseau’s father says his daughter was only a substitute teacher so she wasn’t given keys to lock the door.  Locking the door is standard procedure during a lockdown.

Her father wonders if she would be alive today had she been able to lock the gunman out.

Rousseau’s car is a testament to the high powered gun that Adam Lanza used during massacre.

Bullets passed through the car, after piercing the walls and windows of the school Rousseau earned a Master’s degree in education, but had been searching since graduation for a permanent job.
