Newtown Photos Will Not Be Released

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) --
   Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has signed a law to prevent the public release of crime scene photos and video evidence from the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre.
   The governor signed the bill Wednesday, saying he believes "a parent of a deceased child should have the right to remember that child" as they wish and not because they were "caught up in some tragic ... circumstances."
   The law creates an exemption under the Connecticut Freedom of Information Act, and applies to Connecticut homicides. It prevents the release of photographs, film, video and other images depicting a homicide victim if those records "constitute an unwarranted invasion" of the personal privacy of the victim or surviving family members.
   Twenty first-graders and six school employees were killed in the Dec. 14 shootings.
