Why Adam Lanza went on his murderous shooting rampage at a Newtown, Connecticut elementary school nearly a year ago may never be known.

That was the conclusion of prosecutors Monday, as revealed in a report that closed out their exhaustive investigation into the Sandy Hook tragedy.

Adam Lanza, 20, killed 20 Sandy Hook Elementary School first-graders, six educators, his mother and himself to death on December 14 of last year.

According to the summary report by the lead investigator, State's Attorney Stephen Sedensky III, there was no indication Lanza would've done this.

Lanza was obsessed with mass murders and the 1999 Columbine High School shooting in particular, but never discussed replicating such massacres.

Jim Howe, a Tennessee dad, was recently arrested for disorderly conduct after he complained about the student pick-up policy at his children's school.

Video of the incident, posted online by his fiancee, shows Howe getting arrested for disorderly conduct at South Cumberland Elementary School.

As explained in the clip, the school recently instituted a new policy that asks parents to wait in a line of cars before their kids are released from school.

Howe, however, felt the line of vehicles caused safety issues.

The video states the policy causes “traffic [to be] backed up over a mile on a busy highway.” So he walked into the school to pick up his children.

He also wanted to protest the guidelines. It didn't go well.

Savanna Harris Todd, a South Carolina girl kidnapped by her mother when she was just 10 months old, has been found alive in Australia, 19 years later.

She is now 20 and living under the name Samantha Geldenhuys.

Savannah appeared at her mother's side in court on Wednesday of last week, holding a sign that said, "We love you, Mom," according to reports.

Todd was living a “safe, healthy and otherwise living a normal life” in Queensland, U.S. Attorney Bill Nettles said in a statement regarding the development.

Her mother, Dorothy Lee Barnett, was charged with international parental kidnapping and two counts of false statements in a passport application.

She was captured back on November 4 following a joint investigation by Australian federal police and the FBI, ending a bizarre, two-decade saga.

The manager of a McDonald's in Australia got creative when it came to shooing away disruptive teenagers that plagued his restaurant late at night.

According to Fox & Friends, he didn't ask anyone to leave or change any store policy, but merely started blasting opera and classical music. LOUD.

So far, he says, the musical strategy seems to be working well!

Locals in the area said on social media that it’s an awesome idea as a non-confrontational means of keeping the location free of late night shenanigans.

However, local resident Janeen Brady complained about the music, saying it woke her up at 1 a.m. and fearing it’ll only get worse over the holidays.

Christmas music thrown into the mix would be a festive twist ...

An Albuquerque, N.M., woman put her puppy in a Ziploc bag and held it up for the camera, in an attempt to show Facebook friends how small the dog is.

We know, we can't believe it either ... that someone would really do that, that she'd be stupid enough to post it online, or that this person has any friends.

Mary Snell, 44, and her son, Britton James Engel, 21, were both arrested in Bernalillo County last week once a tipster alerted police to the photo, CNN reports.

Engel allegedly took the photo of Snell holding up the the eight-week-old Chihuahua, named Baby, in the bag, which was just big enough to envelop it.

She later told reporters that she realized this stunt was wrong, but, well, she "couldn't get the little guy to hold still any other way," according to KRQE-TV.

Deputies said that the position of the poor puppy - face and nose pressed up against the sides of the bag - could have easily deprived it of oxygen.

Both Engel and Snell were charged with felony animal cruelty. Baby is doing fine and, thank goodness, now lives with another family member.

What do Jennifer Lawrence and Miley Cyrus have in common? Liam Hemsworth

And this fantastic parody-mashup of the JLaw-Hemsworth flick Catching Fire and Miley's song about her split from Gayle himself.

Man, this is weirder than we thought. And awesome. Weird but awesome. Yeah, let's go with that.

Cheekily titled "Reaping Ball," the video rewrites the Miley song and video. If you ask me, this one's even better than the original (if only because of Peeta and Katniss).

Enjoy!

Rain on your wedding day may be ironic.

But rain in Los Angeles is cause for mass panic and a reporter that tries as hard as humanly possible to get to the bottom of this crazily unexpected story.

In the following footage, she braves the drizzle... fights through the windshield wipers that dare to occasionally obscure her view of the road... and asks the most pressing question of all to brave pedestrians on the street?

How does one stay dry in the face of such precipitation? The answer may shock you:

This spring, John and Ann Betar became America's longest married couple. On Monday, the Connecticut lovebirds celebrate an incredible milestone:

Eighty-one years of marriage!

Seriously. The pair eloped in Harrison, N.Y. on November 25, 1932. He was 21, she was just 17. Ann told Reuters that the eloped because of their age difference:

"[We] had no choice but to elope because my father was set on me marrying a much older man, and I was 17," the 98-year-old adds of her 102-year-old spouse.

"John was not the boy next door, but the boy across the street who I loved."

John added that the nuptials caused quite a stir among their families.

Jermaine Lloyd, from Augusta, Georgia, may not have exposed himself to a group of children a la Peewee Herman, but he was arrested for indecent exposure.

Authorities found him hiding behind a tree while naked except for a pair of hot pink heels and a turban. At the time he was trying to put on a pair of pink women's panties. 

Silly man. He might've been able to get himself dressed if he'd just taken off the heels first.

Lloyed attempted to flee, but was apprehended, probably because he was running in high heels. He was also carrying a pair of sweatpants and a purple Crown Royal bag containing cocaine and marijuana.

This was totally confusing until that last part about the drugs.
