Flash Report: the University of Connecticut is planning to sequence the genome/exome of Adam Lanza, the Newtown killer.

Geneticists at the University of Connecticut are making plans to study the DNA of Adam Lanza, who killed 20 children and seven adults in Newtown. 
I personally disagree with Dr. Beaudet, Professor at the Baylor College of Medicine and chairman of its Department of Molecular and Human Genetics, who said: “We can’t afford not to do this research”.
New York Times article provides more details on this controversial effort to discover biological clues to extreme violence.
