Search warrants released in Newtown investigation

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut authorities have released the warrants that investigators used to search the home and car of the gunman who massacred 26 people inside a Newtown elementary school.

A judge granted a request by the prosecutor overseeing the probe to withhold some information, such as the name of a witness and serial numbers on some items found.

Twenty-year-old gunman Adam Lanza killed his mother inside their Newtown home on Dec. 14 before driving to Sandy Hook Elementary School, where his victims included 20 first-graders. He then committed suicide.

Investigators have publicly released few details, but Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said last week that additional information would be released at his request.

The search warrants had been kept secret under a judge's sealing order that expired on Wednesday.
