State police release full list of victims in Newtown

On Saturday, the Connecticut State Police released names of the deceased in Newtown school shooting Saturday. The state medical examiner H. Wayne Carver II said in a press conference it was the worst he or his colleagues had seen in 30 years on the job. Mr. Carver told reporters he had not broken down after autopsying victims, 20 of them children, yet. But emphasized the “not yet.”

President Barack Obama is expected to appear at a memorial service Sunday night in Newtown. On Saturday evening, Gov. Dannel Malloy addressed the media about the incident and said, “Yesterday an unspeakable tragedy occurred in the community of Newtown. 20 beautiful children and 7 wonderful adults lost their lives. All of Connecticut’s people, indeed the people of the world, weep for the immeasurable losses suffered by the families and loved ones of these victims. Though we could all try, when something as senseless as this occurs, there’s precious little anyone can say to the families of the victims that will lessen the horror and sense of loss they feel. We could say we feel their pain, but the truth is we can’t.”

Mr. Malloy added, “When tragedies like this occur, people often look for answers, an explanation of how this could have occurred. But the sad truth is, there are no answers. No good ones, anyway.”

Greenwich is in the middle of planning a vigil for this week. Town officials, Board of Education leaders and local clergy are all working on putting it together.

The majority of the victims appear to be 6 years old old, with some 7, and the rest adults. Carver said he expected to perform the final two autopsies on the shooter and another body found at a another crime scene on Sunday morning. Carver said all of the causes of death in his completed autopsies were gunshot wounds, and all deaths are classified as homicides.
