A nation is left in mourning and there is still no clear answer as to what might have led to the massacre of twenty children and seven adults at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown Connecticut.

The shooter who reportedly took his own life was identified as twenty years old Adam Lanza.  His mother Nancy Lanza who was first thought to be a teacher at the school may have been a part-time substitute teacher.  She was not at the school when the shootings took place.  Her body was found inside her home on Friday which might indicate that Adam killed her before going to the school to continue his killing spree.

He entered the school administration office around 9:4o a.m., just half-an-hour after the school day began.  According to reports he was wearing dark clothing, a mask and bullet proof vest, and was carrying three guns – a Glock and a Sig Sauer, and a .223- caliber rifle.  Investigators said he fired at least 100 rounds.

Trying to understand why this catastrophe took place seems more difficult than trying to put together the pieces of a jig saw puzzle.  Why did he go to the school?  Why were those innocent children and other members of the school community slaughtered?  Why did this tragedy take place?
