The remains of Sandy Hook shooter Adam Lanza lay unclaimed for nearly two weeks after the massacre that killed 20 children at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut.

But they were finally claimed by his father, Peter Lanza, last Thursday and were buried in an undisclosed location over the weekend.
