NEWTOWN, Conn. (WTNH) — The house where Sandy Hook shooter Adam Lanza started his deadly rampage will be torn down. The final decision was reached Tuesday night.
After a long process, it was a unanimous decision to tear down the house. Just six people attended the town meeting Tuesday. No one rushed to speak about the motion, but eventually three came up. All of them supported tearing down the home.
The house is where Adam Lanza murdered his mother in December of 2012 before going to Sandy Hook Elementary, where he killed 26 children and educators.
“Most of the people I talk to are in favor of getting rid of this place because it’s just bad memories,” said Newtown’s Philip Carroll. “The drive by it and it’s poison to them.”
