About25 family members attendedthe ceremony.In Newtown, where make-shift memorials of stuffed ani-mals, angels, candles, flowersand balloons have blossomedon patches of grass through-out town, there is only onenoticeable tribute to NancyLanza. It’s a letter writtenby a friend on yellow paperaffixed, screwed and shel-lacked onto a red piece of wood.“Others now share painfor choices you faced alone;May the blameless among usthrow the first stone,” it readsin part.No one outwardly blamesNancy Lanza for the ram-page.

After an investigationby law enforcement officials,however, it has been deter-mined the threats were notcredible.Superintendent KenAmstutz released a statementon Thursday evening stat-ing that early in the morn-ing on Wednesday, a textwas received by the VanWert Police threatening thata weapon was going to bebrought to the MS/HS build-ing. The police took the texterto the station for questioningwhere they admitted sendingthe message but that it wasonly meant to be a joke. Thisperson is no longer in theschool district and is not con-sidered to be a threat.However, on Thursdayduring lunch period, a seriesof texts between students atVWCS and Vantage CareerCenter said there was anoth-er threat of weapons beingbrought to school today.Throughout the afternoon,

school and law enforcementofficials investigated the alle-gations and determined thatthe threats were not credible.Amstutz also pointedout that despite rumors, theMiddle School/High Schoolcomplex was never in lock-down. Students in grades 3-5were expected to take part ina program at the NiswongerPerforming Arts Center butthat was canceled due to theongoing investigation.

FBI: 1 of 2 escapedChicago inmates arrested
CHICAGO (AP) — Oneof the two bank robbers whomade a daring escape froma high-rise federal jail inChicago was arrested aftera dayslong manhunt, an FBIspokeswoman said earlytoday.Special Agent Joan Hydesaid Joseph “Jose” Bankswas captured without inci-dent in Chicago. Agents andofficers from the ChicagoFBI’s Violent Crimes TaskForce, along with officersfrom the Chicago PoliceDepartment, arrested Banksabout 11:30 p.m. Thursday,Hyde told The AssociatedPress in an email.The search continued forKenneth Conley, who fledthe jail with Banks earlyTuesday.Banks, 37, and Conley,38, somehow broke a largehole into the bottom of a6-inch wide window of theMetropolitan CorrectionalCenter, dropped a make-shift rope made of bedsheets out and climbeddown about 20 stories tothe ground.The escape went unno-ticed for hours, with surveil-lance video from a nearbystreet showing the two hopinto a cab shortly before3 a.m. Tuesday. They hadchanged out of their orange jail-issued jumpsuits.When the facility did dis-cover the two men weregone around 7 a.m., whatwas found revealed a metic-ulously planned escape,including clothing andsheets shaped to resemblea body under blankets onbeds, bars inside a mattressand even fake bars in thecells.A massive manhuntinvolving state, federaland local law enforcementagencies was launched, asSWAT teams stormed intothe home of a relative of Conley only to learn thetwo escapees had been thereand left. The authoritiessearched other area homesand businesses — even astrip club where Conleyonce worked.Law enforcement offi-cials left a host of questionsunanswered, including howthe men could collect about200 feet of bed sheets andwhat they might have usedto break through the wall of the federal facility.Banks, known as theSecond-Hand Banditbecause he wore usedclothes during his heists,was convicted last weekof robbing two banks andattempting to rob two oth-ers. Authorities say he stolealmost $600,000, and mostof that still is missing.During trial, he had tobe restrained because hethreatened to walk out of the courtroom. He actedas his own attorney andverbally sparred with theprosecutor, at times arguingthat U.S. law didn’t applyto him because he was asovereign citizen of a groupthat was above state andfederal law.Conley pleaded guiltylast October to robbing aHomewood Bank last yearof nearly $4,000. Conley,who worked at the time at asuburban strip club, wore acoat and tie when he robbedthe bank and had a gunstuffed in his waistband.

said the gunman, her 20-year-old son Adam, used the gunsshe kept at their home to carryout a massacre that became thesecond-deadliest school shoot-ing in U.S. history and hasstirred lawmakers to call forgun control laws.Nationwide, churches willring their bells 26 times at 9:30this morning — exactly a weekafter the shooting occurred— in memory of the victims.Two gold balloons, one a 2, theother a 6, are tied to a bridge.Handwritten tributes mention26 snowflakes. “26 angels willguide us,” reads one.The dearth of tributes toNancy Lanza underscores thecomplicated mix of emotionssurrounding her after the shoot-ing.In a small town where mul-tiple funerals are taking placeeach day, where black-cladmourners stand in lines waitingto say goodbye to another child,many are incredibly angry atNancy Lanza for not keepingher guns away from her son.Some view her as a vic-tim, but one whose guns wereused to kill first-graders. Andothers think Nancy Lanza wasan innocent victim, one whoshould be counted and includedat memorials.“It’s a loss of life and, yes,her life mattered,” said ChristineLombardi. “Yes, I do believeshe should be included.”Others in Newtown areweary of the crush of mediaand have become reluctant toanswer questions after a dif-ficult week. But the subject of marking Nancy Lanza’s death,along with those of the childrenand teachers killed by her son,seemed mainly to surprise twomoms who stopped to placeflowers at the memorial at Mainand Sugar streets with their twogrammar-school aged girls.They paused, appearedbewildered, and looked at eachother for a moment. Then onequietly said, “No, no,” and theyeach took a girl’s hand and ledthem away.Newtown and environsweathered a fourth day of funerals Thursday as mournerslaid to rest Catherine Hubbard,Benjamin Wheeler, Jesse Lewisand Allison Wyatt, all 6 yearsold; and Grace McDonnell, 7.A service was held inKatonah, N.Y., for teacherAnne Marie Murphy, 52, whoauthorities believe helped shieldsome of her students from therain of bullets. Roman CatholicCardinal Timothy Dolan com-pared her to Jesus.“Like Jesus, Annie laid downher life for her friends,” Dolansaid. “Like Jesus, Annie’s lifeand death brings light, truth,goodness and love to a worldoften shrouded in darkness, evil,selfishness and death.”A bell tolled Thursday atNewtown’s St. Rose of LimaRoman Catholic Church at thefuneral for Catherine, who herfamily said would be remem-bered for her passion for ani-mals and her constant smile.Trinity Episcopal church onMain Street was filled to capac-ity for the funeral for Benjamin,described as a budding musi-cian and Beatles fan. His ser-vice included a rendition of “Here Comes The Sun.” Abouttwo dozen Boy Scout leaderslined the front pathway to thechurch in honor of the formerCub Scout.In downtown Danbury,mourners filed into theornate white-pillared FirstCongregational Church for amemorial service for 30-year-old teacher Lauren Rousseau.Friends wept at the altar as theyremembered the spirited, hard-working, sunny-natured womanwho brightened their lives withsilliness and gave them all nick-names.Gov. Dannel Malloy hasasked people across Connecticutto observe a moment of silenceat 9:30 a.m. today, which willmark a week since the shoot-ings. The White House has saidPresident Barack Obama willprivately observe the momentof silence.
