By Richard Weizel MILFORD Conn. (Reuters) - More than $28 million has been donated to support people affected by the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre, and more than half the money has been distributed, a Connecticut attorney general report said on Tuesday. The report found most of that money has been given to families of the 20 children and six adults at the Newtown, Connecticut, school who were shot to death on Dec. 14, 2012, by gunman Adam Lanza, 20. The massacre of 26 victims was one of the worst school shootings in U.S. history. Connecticut Attorney General George Jepsen's office found no evidence of illegal activities related to fundraising or how the money has been spent, according to his report on groups collecting and making donations for Sandy Hook that also included two voluntary surveys.
