(CBS News) CBS News stated how Adam Lanza ruined his computer systems before he drove to Sandy Hook Elementary School on Friday. Investigators state the Newtown gunman did such a thorough job, the FBI has actually been not able to recover any info from those computer systems. But CBS News saw one company that may be able to help. When Hurricane Sandy cleaned with the Northeast, it saturated thousands of computer systems. Some of their owners are looking for a miracle from Michael Diomidous. He runs Data Recovery Operations for Kroll, the company now attempting to wring out info from those water-logged hard-drives. Kroll technicians recovered 99 percent of the data from another drive blown into the environment after the Space Shuttle Columbia disaster. That nearly thawed drive sat at the bottom of a Texas lake for 6 months. They were successful after 9/11.

0.0171447Erik Venema, who runs the forensics side of Kroll's operation, said, "It is like a cake. If the top one gets damaged, it may be that we can see the data that the user created on the other platters, which may not be damaged."

-0.177892Venema said they contain "obviously incriminating evidence, without question."

  • Aggregate Sentiment is meant to be an indicator of an individual's overall sentiment.
  • The Mean is meant to be an indicator of an individual's average comment sentiment.
  • The Standard Deviation, when there are enough quotes, will indicate an individual's consistency of sentiment (i.e. a Standard Deviation of 0 would mean they were very consistent in their sentiment and 1 would mean they were very inconsistent).

Note that quote stats are likely to be meaningless beyond the aggregate score due to the tiny sample size. However, they are always provided just in case you find something useful there.
