Thousands are descending on this grief-stricken town, some to attend funerals for the young victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting and others simply to pay their respects and to thank God that they were spared such an unimaginable loss.
An attorney for a Connecticut man who fatally shot his 15-year-old son said Thursday that state police want access to his computer and phone to try to determine why the boy was out at night wearing a ski mask and armed with a knife.
"Life will be 'Before' and 'After' Friday," said Mr. Zingaro, a lawyer.
"We didn't have blood on our door that day. For some reason, it passed us over," he said, echoing the sentiments of many of the grief-stricken in Newtown, who realize the events at Sandy Hook could've taken place at their child's school, that their son or daughter easily could have met the same fate as the 20 children and seven adults killed by Adam Lanza.
