What drove Sandy Hook shooter Adam Lanza to murder 26 people in cold blood? The answer could lie in his DNA ... and now, geneticists are trying to uncover the microscopic mystery.

The study will take place at the University of Connecticut, where a team of geneticists is reportedly set to examine Lanza's DNA. The team is expected to investigate whether a special mutation is responsible for setting off the troubled 20-year-old on December 14.

UConn's department of genetics is working hand-in-hand with CT's Chief Medical Examiner during the study -- though a rep for the medical examiner's office admits ... they're not really sure what they're looking for.

Results are expected to take several weeks.

Bullcrap. If he was any other race he would be a terrorist or a thug.

What are we going to do - find Lanza's mutation, take blood from everyone in the US, then jail everyone with that mutation even if they've never done anything wrong?

I'd love to know what kind of prescription drugs this worthless piece of **** was on. Even pictures of him as a kid show craziness inhis eyes. Look at this pic of him TMZ chose to post to go along with this article... Crazy eyes. I wonder if he was ever on psychotic drugs when he was younger...

Hard to pick out who the nuts are nowadays. I'd venture to bet 80% of the people on the Internet look like this guy's picture.

He looked like a freak. And he's a cold-blooded murderer. So he's probably a mutant from hell.
