Newtown families discuss the release of search warrants

NEWTOWN, CT (WFSB) -

All of the parents and family members of the 26 people killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dec. 14 were briefed Wednesday night about the five search warrants released to the public Thursday.

From the documents, we learned that the gunman Adam Lanza collected photos of a deceased human and newspaper articles about other mass killings. Seven journals were also found.

Eyewitness News also learned that the Federal Bureau of Investigation interviewed someone who knew Lanza, but their identity is being withheld. The person said Lanza "attended Sandy Hook Elementary School and that the school was Adam Lanza's life."

Lanza's Sandy Hook Elementary School report cards and other school related paperwork were mentioned in the warrants as well.

The warrants also indicate in Lanza's bedroom police found the smashed computer drive on his desk, gaming consoles and a gun safe.

The warrants reveal Lanza was avid gamer, who played Call of Duty most of the time.

The father of Daniel Barden, who was one of children who was killed during the school shooting, said the focus has to be on change, not the killer.

"I think the public needs to remember that a gunman shot his way into an elementary school and shot and killed 26 people," said Mark Barden. "Twenty of which were first grade children."

Dylan Hockley was also one of the lives lost that day and on Thursday, his mother, Nicole Hockley, sat down with Eyewitness News.

"He's constantly smiling, constantly laughing," said Nicole Hockley about her son. "He had a giggle that would make everyone aw giggle with him."

Dylan Hockley will always be that smiling face his mother adored. It's what still motivates her each day.

"I repeat my promise to him every morning that I will do whatever I have to so to prevent this from happening to other people," said Nicole Hockley.

The parents who were briefed Wednesday night before the warrants were release said they have grown closer.

"We've gotten a lot of help and support by talking to other families by measuring and balancing how we're doing with it," said Mark Barden. "By how they're dealing with it. And it's comforting to see they. They are all twisted up like we are."
