HARTFORD -- The body of the man who killed 26 people at a Connecticut elementary school has been claimed for burial.
A spokeswoman at Carver's office told The Associated Press she could not release details about the status of Lanza's remains.
The 20-year-old Lanza killed 20 first-graders and six educators at the Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dec. 14. He also killed his mother in their Newtown home before going on the rampage and then committing suicide.
A private funeral was held earlier this month in New Hampshire for his mother, Nancy Lanza.
Police have not offered a motive for the killings.
