(Newser) – The body of Sandy Hook school shooter Adam Lanza has been claimed for burial by father Peter Lanza, a family spokesman tells the AP. The burial site of Adam Lanza, who killed his mother before massacring 20 elementary school students and six staff members, will be kept secret, the Hartford Courant reports. The examiner has ruled Lanza's death a suicide, but he won't close the case until toxicology reports are completed. Scientists plan to study Lanza's DNA for abnormalities.

Hey fractal, that 1 like you got 20 mins. ago was my mistake thinking I hit reply button, but not available - newser changed format sucks. Anyway your previous question was directed to Sharon, not me."Tell me Sharon, Has GOD come to you personally yet, and appeared to you? What did he say? Did s/he have an accent? Any clothes on? Was there a halo? Was mommy Mary in the background? Angels? Clouds? " Hence I didn't answer. My response post merely directed a question to you, to wit, "Tell us fractal, Will you be so lippy when you (like all of us) "shuffle off this mortal coil" and stand face to face with our Creator?
