Raising Adam Lanza 1x53

In the wake of the mass killings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, Raising Adam Lanza investigates a young man and the town he changed forever. Adam Lanza left behind a trail of death and destruction, but little else. He left no known friends, no diary. He destroyed his computer and any evidence it might have provided. His motives, and his life, remain largely a mystery. This FRONTLINE documentary looks for answers to the central—and so far elusive—question: who was Adam Lanza? In the aftermath of the tragedy, President Obama called for a national conversation about guns in America. Nowhere is that conversation more intense than in Newtown. Raising Adam Lanza also explores how those closest to the tragedy are now wrestling with our nation’s gun culture and laws.
