Newtown to Release Sandy Hook Massacre 911 Tapes

Monday, 02 Dec 2013 01:16 PM

 


Officials in Newtown, Conn., say the 911 recordings from the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting will be released on Wednesday.

A Connecticut Superior Court judge ruled last week that the tapes from last December should be released to The Associated Press after a lengthy fight over the records that have been withheld by investigators.

Newtown officials said in the statement Monday that the tapes will be available Wednesday at an office in Danbury.

The state's Freedom of Information Commission ruled in September that the recordings should be provided to the AP. State's Attorney Stephen Sedensky III, the lead Newtown investigator, has been appealing the FOI commission's ruling. He declined to comment Monday.

The AP plans to review the content and determine what, if any, of it would meet the news cooperative's standards for publication.
