As new theories develop, and fresh clues emerge, following the tragic mass killing in Newtown, Conn., this evening "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomed a pair of journalists boasting unprecedented access to the life of the person responsible for 28 deaths.
In teaming with PBS FRONTLINE to produce the film "Raising Adam Lanza," reporters Alaine Griffin and Josh Kovner looked for answers surrounding the unspeakable events of December 14, 2012.
Joining Piers Morgan for a live interview, tonight the pair revealed some of their findings particularly in terms of the relationship and role of his mother Nancy, the day's first victim, and the woman known to have brought the firearms used in the shooting into the Lanza home.
"How much responsibility should she have on her shoulders," asked Morgan, allowing that she's unfortunately unable to defend or speak for herself. "Should she have done more, do you think, to get him treatment?"
Noting that Lanza suffered from a series of mental disorders, Kovner addressed Nancy Lanza's culpability:
"For a healthy kid, it's fine. And maybe early in his life, maybe it was okay," he said, referencing the presence of guns in Lanza's life. "As he struggled more, as he struggled to find his place in the world, as his contemporaries went on to college and went on to jobs and he ended up basically sitting home, it starts to get unhealthy perhaps. I think she should have regulated the activity a little bit more."
As recent reports have suggested that the motivation behind Lanza's incident was in certain ways a perceived competition with Norwegian mass-murdered Anders Behring Breivik, Griffin offered some physical evidence that may potentially support such a theory:
"Hartford Courant reporters Dave Altimari and Ed Mahony reported today that investigators did find news articles that talked about the massacre in Norway. "It's a theory they're looking at, that perhaps he did emulate the Norway shooter," she explained. "Finding those news articles in the home is something that is definitely part of their investigation."
Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, as the two reporters playing key roles in the PBS FRONTLINE film go on to share specific details as to the ways in which Nancy Lanza stores the guns in her home, and whether or not the firearms were securely locked up.
