No evidence Connecticut gunman applied to several local colleges

The Washington Post is reporting that Adam Lanza, the gunman in the Connecticut elementary school shootings, was considering going to college in Washington.

A friend of Lanza’s mother, Nancy Lanza, said she had discovered a program in Washington that seemed to suit him. But several Puget Sound-area colleges and three in Eastern Washington said today they had not received an application from him.

Lanza did not apply to the University of Washington or its branch campuses in Tacoma and Bothell, a spokesman said. If Lanza had gone on a campus tour, though, there would have been no record of it.

There is no record of Lanza applying to Washington State University in Pullman. And Seattle University, Seattle Pacific University, DigiPen Institute of Technology in Redmond, Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, Western Washington University in Bellingham, Whitman College in Walla Walla and Gonzaga University in Spokane had not received either an application or a visit from Lanza, spokespeople at those schools said.
