FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. -- The Connecticut State Police on Friday released thousands of pages of its investigative documents related to the Dec. 14, 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Conn.

The release of the documents came more than a year after 20 first-graders and six educators were killed by a lone gunman at the school.

The report is available online at

The report runs several thousand pages and has been redacted according to state law, State Police Lt. J. Paul Vance said in a statement.

It contains some text, photos and 911 calls received by the State Police on the day of the deadly shootings in Newtown.

The release of this document indicates that this State Police criminal investigation is complete, Vance said.

Administratively, the investigation consists of three separate case numbers for the primary investigation, for the scene at Sandy Hook Elementary School, and for the homicide at 36 Yogananda St. in Newtown, State Police said at the website.

Each investigation includes numerous written reports, with each case number available for separate download. Additionally, each investigation also includes various forms of multimedia, including photographs, video recordings and/or audio recordings, State Police said.

Many of the files are very large, will take a considerable amount of time to download, and may impose a heavy burden on the hosting system, State Police said.

The release came about a month after Danbury State's Attorney Stephen J. Sedensky III released a 48-page summary report based on the documents, concluding that shooter Adam Lanza acted alone in planning and carrying out the massacre. No motive was found for the deadly shootings, the report said. He also killed his mother before the school shooting and killed himself after police arrived at the school, the report said.
