(AP Photo/NBC News, File) (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.
