Adam Lanza is suspected of killing 20 children and six adults before taking his own life on Friday.

Lanza's mother, Nancy, who was originally from Kingston, N.H., was his initial victim. He then reportedly moved on to the elementary school, where he caused what became the second-deadliest school shooting in U.S. history.
