Lam shared his bedroom with his brother, who was unaware of his activities; Lam worked the nightshift, so was able to dismember victims at home during the daytime without his immediate family finding out.

82,195. At some point before he went to the school, investigators believe Adam Lanza, 20, killed his mother, Nancy Lanza.
He grabbed three guns from the house – a semi-automatic AR-15 assault rifle made by Bushmaster and pistols made by Glock and Sig Sauer – and went to the elementary school wearing black fatigues and a military vest, according to a law enforcement official.
Classes were under way at the school. Approximately 700 students were present.
Earlier this year, the school principal, Dawn Lafferty Hochsprung, ordered a new security system installed that required visitors to be visibly identified and buzzed in. As part of the security system, the school locked its doors each day at 9:30 a.m.
The door was locked when the gunman arrived.
Authorities now know the gunman used ‘an assault weapon’ to ‘literally (shoot) an entrance into the building,’ Connecticut Governor Daniel Malloy said. CNN online article

16,828. When I left the Mirror all the big campaigns I had been involved in had apparently failed. I used to tell people, ‘Don’t come to me – I always lose.’ Then, one by one, the major cases were reopened and reversed These included the release of Eddie Browning, who was falsely accused of the murder of Marie Wilkes, in 1994; the quashing of Colin Wallace’s conviction in 1996 and the release of the Bridgewater Four in 1997. So when I was back at Private Eye there was a series of victories in old campaigns, and new campaigns starting. As early as 1994 we raised doubts about the Stephen Lawrence case. In three articles called Sergeants’ Mess we pointed out that Stephen’s murderers were not prosecuted because Duwayne Brooks’s identification of two suspects was rubbished by a police officer who had absolutely no justification in rubbishing him. We also covered the Aitken story and the arms to Iraq affair. (Miscarriage of Justice & Murder & Police) Paul Foot, Tribune of the People
