Rumors swirl when there is a dearth of information released. It's hardly the public's fault when rumors and conspiracies flourish. That's the
fault of the police when they keep all the info under wraps.
A moment later, she(Scarlett Lewis, mother of deceased victim Jesse McCord Lewis) reaches into a plastic sandwich bag and pulls out a small piece of
glass....Lewis retrieved the glass fragment from Jesse's classroom on Christmas Day. ...
So when police approached her and asked if she wanted to return to Sandy Hook School, Lewis agreed almost on the spot, even though she knew how much
it was going to hurt.
"The front doors and the side glass were completely blown out and gone and covered with plywood, but you knew what was under it.
"And then, the first two classrooms were completely gone. The windows were all blown out
. The only other family who had been there was Miss
Soto's family," Lewis said of Jesse's teacher, Victoria Soto. "So we took a piece of glass because there was glass scattered all over ....It
wasn't until later that police told Lewis that Jesse died running toward the shooter
, apparently trying to lead his classmates to safety.
Jesse was given a commander-in-chief's funeral for his actions, an honor usually reserved for heads of state and soldiers who have fallen in the act
of valor, Lewis said.
"We were in the limo following the hearse, and there were two motorcycles on each side of us with their sirens on. And there were 10 police cars in
front of us and 10 behind," Lewis said.
--If they had mopped up the blood by this time, why didn't they sweep up the glass at the same time?
--How come the windows in both the affected classrooms were blown out? Did the shooter shoot them out? There was no indication of that.
--How do they know victim Jesse McCord had run toward the shooter?
