Newtown Residents Want Gunman’s House Torn Down

Some residents of Newtown, Conn. want the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooter's home torn down and the property turned into a park or nature preserve.

The Newtown-Sandy Hook Community Foundation reached out to the community on residents' unmet needs in the wake of the December 2012, received more than 1,600 responses and has released the results.

The foundation has been deciding how to distribute more than $11 million in donations made in response to the shootings that killed 20 first-graders and six educators.

Some survey responses said money should be set aside to tear down gunman Adam Lanza's house in Newtown, where he killed his mother before going to the school.

The survey found that counseling and cash assistance services were among families' top priorities.
