(AP) – Authorities say they may be able to release the identities of the victims of the Connecticut school shooting on Saturday morning.
State police Lt. Paul Vance said Friday evening that officials were “cautiously optimistic” that they could have all the identities pinned down by the morning.
He says that authorities already have preliminary identities but that “it's a very meticulous process.”
Family and friends have been identifying some, including the school's principal. When she took the job in 2010, Dawn Hochsprung told the Newton Bee that she couldn't image “a more positive place to bring students to every day.”
