Secrecy Shrouds Sandy Hook Shooting Investigation --Decision to continue withholding bulk of evidence is stirring new criticism of secrecy that has surrounded probe 24 Nov 2013 A prosecutor is planning to release a [heavily redacted] report Monday on the investigation into the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School, but the public will have to wait longer for the state police's full accounting of the crime... Dan Klau, a Hartford attorney who specializes in First Amendment law, said the decision to release a summary report before the full evidence file is a reversal of standard practice and one of the most unusual elements of an investigation marked by secrecy. "What I found troubling about the approach of the state's attorney [Stephen Sedensky III] is that from my perspective, he seems to have forgotten his job is to represent the state of Connecticut," Klau said. "His conduct in many instances has seemed more akin to an attorney in private practice representing Sandy Hook families."
