There are a lot of people who, for understandable reasons, would like the story of the Sandy Hook shootings to fade away. But, of course it never will. It's part of our molecular structure, especially here in Connecticut. 

This hour, we touch on some of the questions answered  by the release of the state's so called final report on the murders. We also talk about some of the questions that haven't been answered and the peculiar, to some of us, reluctance by the state to release this report. 

The report is thousands of pages long, and I think it's fair to say that nobody has read all of it since it came out Friday afternoon. It seems to be heavy on paperwork and lighter on original documents from the life of Adam Lanza.
