BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) — The families of more than a dozen victims of the 2012 school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, will split $1.5 million under recently finalized settlements of lawsuits against the gunman’s mother’s estate.
A lawyer for several victims’ families says the settlements were finalized Dec. 17. Details of the agreements were first announced in August.
The lawsuits said Nancy Lanza failed to properly secure her legally owned Bushmaster AR-15 rifle. Her son, Adam Lanza, used the rifle to kill 20 first-graders and six educators at Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dec. 14, 2012. He killed his mother before the school shooting and killed himself afterward.
The families of 16 people who were killed will split $1.5 million from Nancy Lanza’s homeowner’s insurance.
Victims’ families also are suing the maker of the Bushmaster rifle.

“The families of 16 people who were killed will split $1.5 million from Nancy Lanza’s homeowner’s insurance.”
Apparently the FBI statistics for Newtown/2012 showing ZERO murders/non-negligible manslaughters were never introduced as evidence.
Pass the popcorn.
With lots of butter.
I’d like for them to prove it , lay out the entire policy and all its beneficiaries
Wouldn’t this also be Capitol gains? , so it’s reportable on these peoples IRS tax forms ?
We’ve been told lies before by insurance companies too , so let the collusion begin
All their mortgages were paid too. I think I read that here. Long ago.
The mortgages were paid off and the paper work was filed on Dec 25 of that year.
Accept upon proof of claim that;
the firearm was not secured properly and that she was murdered by her son and that he used his mothers bushmaster ar15 to kill kids and teachers and himself.
