A mother who is an advocate certified under the state General Assembly, Sabato suspects Lanza may have been taking psychiatric drugs that triggered the mass shooting. She’s organized a petition drive and garnered more than 200 signatures in two days around Newtown calling for the state to release Lanza’s autopsy/toxicologyrecords. She’s also testified before a state legislative sub committee studying mental health services in the wake of the Dec. 14 shooting.
“Adam Lanza wasn’t born evil,” Sabato said. “We want the records before they ask for more money for mental health, which could be dangerous. We want the records to know what kind of mental health treatment he was receiving. We need to know what he was taking.”
