Mourners pay tribute to Sandy Hook victims
Two victims laid to rest
A steady stream of mourners paid tribute to the 26 lives lost in Friday's shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
A memorial for the victims was set up on Main Street in Newtown. In Fairfield Monday, more than 100 people gathered for a candlelight vigil.
The first of the two children killed were laid to rest on Monday. Noah Pozner, who leaves behind a twin sister who was in another classroom when the shots rant out, and Jack Pinto, who was buried in a New York Giants jersey.
"His favorite team was the giants," said Luke Wellman, a fellow student. "He talks about how good he is and I'm with him, he's really good."
Governor Dan Mallow of Connecticut joined the mourners as they laid their little ones to rest.
"The reality, with respect to the relatives, is you try to feel their pain, but you can't," said Mallow. "You try to find some words you hope will be adequate, but knowing that they will be inadequate, and you see little coffins and your hearts has to ache."
Meanwhile, investigators continue to scour over evidence. There are reports the gunman's home computer was found smashed and torn apart. Still no word yet on a motive for the killings.
"It's a very painstaking process in forensic science," said Lieutenant Paul Vance with the Connecticut State Police. "It's going to take some time to do that."
The governor also asked for a moment of silence in honor of the victims on Friday at the same time the tragedy unfolded.
The funerals of two more victims, Jessica Rekos and James Mattioli, are planned for Tuesday.
