Connecticut Shooter Had NH Ties
Parents of alleged killer have roots in Kingston.
The man who police say shot and killed 27 people, including 20 children, in Newtown, CT Friday has ties to New Hampshire.
According to The Eagle-Tribune, the family of Adam Lanza has roots in Haverhill and Southern New Hampshire. The newspaper is reporting Lanza's parents were married in Kingston in 1981, according to town records, and that Lanza's parents lived in Kingston after their marriage before moving to Connecticut. Lanza was also reportedly born in Kingston and lived there with his family until 1998.
The Union Leader is also reporting that Lanza's mother, Nancy Lanza, was the sister of Kingston Police Officer James Champion. CBS Boston says that local police and the FBI were at Champion's East Kingston home on Friday night.
Local, state and federal officials, along with an FBI crisis team, have been on the scene of the shocking incident in the southwestern Connecticut town since just after 9 a.m. Friday morning, after a gunman opened fire inside an elementary school.
