    Connecticut's chief medical examiner said arrangements are being made out of state for the burial of the mother of Adam Lanza, the man who fatally shot 20 children and six adults in a Newtown elementary school.

    The New Haven Register reports (http://bit.ly/T9lc3X ) that Dr. H. Wayne Carver said a funeral home outside Connecticut wants to claim the body of Nancy Lanza, who was shot last Friday by her son shortly before he headed to Sandy Hook Elementary School where he went on a deadly rampage.

    Carver said he doesn't know the name of the funeral home, but said police in New Hampshire are fielding questions from the media. Nancy Lanza once lived in New Hampshire and her brother is a retired police captain in Kingston, N.H.

    Carver wouldn't say whether Adam Lanza's body remains unclaimed.
