    A gunman has killed 21 children and six adults at an elementary school in the US state of Connecticut. The killer at Sandy Hook Elementary School, in Newtown, was a 20-year-old son of a teacher. He is thought to have killed her before the attack. It is one of the worst-ever US school shootings, with a toll close to the 32 who died at Virginia Tech in 2007. Adam Lanza, a 20 year old is believed to have killed his mother, Nancy Lanza, at her home before heading to Sandy Hook school.

    "The word God is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weaknesses, the Bible a collection of honorable, but still primitive legends which are nevertheless pretty childish. No interpretation no matter how subtle can (for me) change this," the letter states, according to an English translation by Joan Stambaugh as found on the auctioneer's Ebay page.

    There have been rumors that she was involved with President John F. Kennedy and/or his brother Robert around the time of her death. At only 36 years old, Marilyn Monroe died on August 5, 1962, at her Los Angeles home. An empty bottle of sleeping pills were found by her bed. There has been some speculation over the years that she may have been murdered, but it was officially ruled as a drug overdose.
