A woman who worked at a Connecticut chief medical examiner’s office was accused of bringing her husband in to gawk at the body of the Newtown school shooter and has been fired.

Chief Medical Examiner Dr. H. Wayne Carver dismissed the employee, Jean Henry, in a letter released Friday.

The processing technician, was accused of showing Adam Lanza's body to her husband on Dec. 16.

Two days earlier, Lanza killed 26 people at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut and then turned a gun on himself.

It was reported in January that Henry was put on administrative leave pending an investigation into the matter.

 

At that time, Connecticut Governor Dannel P. Malloy said he was informed of the investigation, which the University of Connecticut Health Center conducted as the agency that handles personnel matters for the medical examiner's office.

‘I hope that was not true. The investigation is ongoing,’ Malloy said. ‘I would be deeply disappointed if proven to be true and would expect, if proven to be true, that whatever steps are appropriate would be taken.’

The Hartford Courant first broke the story.

Dr. Carver wrote that, in bringing her husband into the morgue, Henry violated the agency's ethical mission and showed 'extremely poor judgment.'

A message was left Friday by the AP for Henry at her home in Watertown, Connecticut.

Chris DeFrancesco, a University of Connecticut Health Center spokesman, says a grievance process is underway and no further information is available.

The center handles personnel matters for the medical examiner's lab.

MRO, then why was the brother and mother on CIA and FBI watchlists who then ignored the Danger? A "lone nutjob" is not on a WatchList for almost two years with his mother. DUH!!!!!

All you conspiracy theorists.... Honestly, with as much hostility that's aimed towards the US, don't you think there is a slim chance that somebody besides our own government might want to harm innocent civilians? Sometimes there's no conspiracy, just your run of the mill nut job.

I want to know what this guy saw in terms of state of the body. Self-inflicted gunshot wound or more wounds? You know, like the younger brother who supposedly shot himself in the neck even though no gun was found in the boat or on his person at the time according to well-respected newspapers with inside sources throughout the world, and when he crawled out of the boat, he was unarmed with ZERO blood on him whatsoever. (see the picture of him crawling out of boat) Next photo available he is covered in blood, bullet holes in a neck brace and the boat is riddled with bullet holes. Newton kids father and Batman shooting guy's father were BOTH marked to testify in banking goverment scandel called LIBOR (google it!) that affected 350 trillion in derivatives. Both fathers testify same goverment banking scandal. A drill was also being conducted down the road from Newton tragedy that was titled studying effects of mass shootings on children. Look it up! Humans Are Free website, etc....
