NEW YORK (PIX11) – On December 14th, 2012 America couldn’t comprehend the tragedy of Sandy Hook.

Now, with the state of Connecticut’s final report, it looks like there may never be answers to many questions.

The report was released on Monday. It concluded that it was Adam Lanza and Adam Lanza alone who planned, and executed the murder of twenty children, six faculty members, and his own mother.

Authorities said, one year later, they do not know why Sandy Hook was choosen and said that we may never know.

It may seem startling, but often times there may be indications in the background that someone could commit a crime like this, but he never voiced to anyone,” said Former FBI Agent Mike Harkins.

Harkins worked on security with families in Newtown. He is a former FBI agent who now works for Risk Control Strategies.

You see he had an obsession with Columbine and mass killings which is certainly an indicator,” said Harkins.

There is a timeline in the report. From the time the doors of the school were locked at 9:30 a.m. until the time it is believed the Lanza killed himself at 9:40:03, fewer than 11 minutes had elapsed.
From the first 911 call, it took police just four minutes to arrive.

The report also detailed and showed what investigators found in Lanza’s home.

Guns and video games. A book about the Amish School shootings.

“Ultimately, they were unable to get information off of his computer because he had damaged it which goes to the face that he certainly planned this event,” said Harkins.

The report described some of Lanza’s mental health issues. He was diagnosed with
Asperger’s Disorder, and was described as presenting with significant social impairments and extreme anxiety. He did not take recommended medication or receive therapy.
