Sandy Hook school to be melted down, erasing any trace of killing spree scene

(NY POST) When the old Sandy Hook Elementary
School is demolished, building materials will be
pulverized on site and metal will be taken away and
melted down in an effort to eliminate nearly every trace
of the building where a gunman killed 26 people last

Contractors also will be required to sign confidentiality
agreements and workers will guard the property’s
perimeter to prevent onlookers from taking
photographs or videos.

The goal is to prevent exploitation of any remnants of
the building, Newtown First Selectman E. Patricia Llodra
said Tuesday.

“We want to be absolutely certain to do everything we
can to protect the privacy of the families and the Sandy
Hook community,” she said. “We’re going to every
possible length to eliminate any possibility that any
artifacts from the building would be taken from the
campus and … end up on eBay.”

Demolition is set to begin next week and be finished
before the Dec. 14 anniversary of the shootings. Town
voters last month accepted a state grant of $49.3
million to raze the building and build a new school,
which is expected to open by December 2016.

The contractors’ confidentiality agreements, which
were first reported Monday by The News-Times of
Danbury, forbid public discussion of the site as well as
photographs or disclosure of any information about the

Llodra, the superintendent of schools and other town
officials have been discussing how to handle the
demolition for weeks. Llodra said they want to shield
the victims’ families and the community from more
trauma, and don’t want any part of the school used for
personal gain.

Most of the building will be completely crushed and
hauled away to an undisclosed location. Some of the
demolition dust may be used in the foundation and
driveway of the new school, Llodra said. The town also
is requiring documentation that metal and other
materials that can’t be crushed and are hauled off-site
are destroyed, she said.

In addition to the demolition crew confidentiality
agreements, the project management company,
Consigli Construction, also may do background checks
on the workers.

“It’s a very sensitive topic,” Selectman Will Rodgers told
The News-Times. “We want it to be handled in a
respectful way.”

Adam Lanza, 20, killed 20 first-grade children and six
women inside the school before committing suicide.
Authorities have not disclosed a possible motive for the
