Connecticut school shooting victims identified

Posted: Updated:
NEWTOWN, Conn. -

The search for a possible motive has taken investigators to two states so far, to New Hampshire where suspect Adam Lanza grew up, and Connecticut where he killed himself, after taking 27 other lives, including his mother's.

It took more than 30 hours, but the Chief Medical Examiner and his staff have identified all the

victims killed at Sandy Hook Elementary and performed autopsies on them.

He says most were killed with a long gun--a rifle, and shot multiple times.

It's the worst carnage Dr. H. Wayne Carver has seen in his 30 years on the job. The victims range in age from five to 56. All of their names have been released.

"I only performed seven of the autopsies. Most of the victims had between three and 11 wounds.. I only saw two with close range shooting," Carver says.

Facebook pages dedicated to the victims are springing up now.

Robbie Parker's friends put one in honor of his six year old daughter Emilie, who was killed in her classroom.

"She was very bright, always smiling," Parker says.

Vigils continue too for people like 27 year old teacher Vicki Soto. She was shot after telling the gunman her kids were in the gym when they were actually hidden in her classroom.

And from shooter Adam Lanza's family, expressions of remorse. His uncle, Jim Champion is a police captain in New Hampshire where Lanza grew up. The local sheriff read a statement detailing Champion's sister Nancy Lanza's life in New Hampshire to her death at the home she shared with her son in Newtown.

Autopsies on Lanza and his mother will be performed tomorrow.

Also on Sunday, President Obama will meet with the victim's families', and first responders in Newtown and then attend an Interfaith memorial service at Newtown High School.
