Anatomy of a murder-suicide 

Suicide is not as newsworthy as homicide. A person's disaffection with his own life is less threatening than his rage to destroy others. So it makes sense that since the carnage in Newtown, Conn., the press has focused on the victims — the heartbreaking, senseless deaths of children, and the terrible pain that their parents and all the rest of us have to bear. Appropriately, we mourn Adam Lanza's annihilation of others more than his self-annihilation.

'People are unknowable'

Sharing pain

  • Only by understanding why Adam Lanza wished to die can we understand why he killed.
