The state investigation into the mass shooting at a Newtown, Conn. elementary school last year has officially come to a close, with thousands of pages of police documents finally released to the public.

The report refers to items found on a computer at Lanza's house that included writings that detail relationships, personal beliefs, a daily schedule, desires and goals. It also documents 911 calls, witness testimony and copious photographic evidence.

Lanza murdered 20 first-graders and six educators with a semi-automatic rifle at Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14th, 2012, after killing his mother inside their home. He committed suicide as police arrived at the school.
