Yes, the Digital Journal... known for their commitment to truth and journalism... oh yeah, that's right it's a online rag that anyone with fingers
able to type can "report" for.
As I said in another (one that has been removed for promoting that article) the story you are linking to is from a 28 December 2012 New Haven Register
article which can be read here.
There are countless reasons for the inclusion of the "potential suspects" phrase being included in a motion to seal the search warrant:
(1) While the motion was decided on December 27, it was drafted by Danbury State’s Attorney Stephen Sedensky III some time before that date (anyone
familiar with the Court system knows that it is not like going to the DMV, taking a number and waiting for your number to be called to be seen; it is
a more involved process which includes scheduling and assigning a judge).
(2) Considering there were three crime scenes involved (the Lanza home, the school and the automobile) there was/is a mountain of stuff to go through
with a fine tooth comb. Frankly if the State's Attorney said that in less than two weeks they processed all the material and knew everything about
the crime that they would ever know; well everyone would be outraged that the police did such a flimsy investigation. In reality they are doing a
very thorough examination of everything (including the hard drive which was allegedly damaged and, who knows, that might have info about some other
potential suspect; but data recovery takes time).
(3) The language of the motion includes: “The investigation, which was a basis for the issuing of the search warrant, is still continuing,” and
“No arrests have been made and none are currently anticipated, but have not been ruled out.” Note that this is somewhat standard/boilerplate
language that is used in similar motions where investigators have a tremendous amount of discovery to thoroughly process.
Let's use our imaginations for a second: Imagine there is someone else involved who helped Lanza. Imagine that this individual is relieved that he
or she hasn't been implicated. Imagine that the State's Attorney didn't file the motion and something in the search warrant report tipped this
individual off by listing something which could connect him or her to the crime but law enforcement had not yet been able to make the connection
because two weeks after the homicide of 26 individuals isn't enough time to thoroughly investigate. Imagine that this imaginar alleged accomplice
was able to flee justice because the State's Attorney failed to keep such information under wraps until law enforcement had the opportunity to fully
explore all of the evidence. I don't know about you but I'd be outraged.
Bottom line: While I do have questions about the Newtown massacre, I'm sorry that the world many here live in is full of such paranoia that
everything becomes a secret plot and conspiracy; I am thankful happy that I don't live in such a world and can enjoy it with my friends, family and
other loved ones.
