Newtown has officially scraped the Adam Lanza home. Hopefully the town will be able to move on and heal, now that hideous reminder has been destroyed.

The Newtown home of the man who killed 20 first graders and six staff members in a shooting rampage at Sandy Hook Elementary School in December 2012 has been demolished.

All that now remains at 36 Yogananda Street, where Adam Lanza lived with his mother Nancy, is a lot of land, which is expected to remain as open space.

On Dec. 14, 2012, Adam Lanza shot his mother before heading to Sandy Hook, where he carried out the massacre and then committed suicide, according to police.
