The massacre of 26 children and adults at a Connecticut elementary school elicited horror and soul-searching around the world even as it raised more basic questions about why the 20-year-old gunman was driven to such a crime and how he chose his victims. Police have shed no light on any motive, and investigators were trying to learn more about the suspect Adam Lanza.
