The Christian Post reported:
Adam Lanza’s hard drive, which was found destroyed in his Connecticut home, may be beyond repair police say, leaving them at a loss to explain the shooter’s motive.

When police first discovered the tainted hard drive, they believed that it could serve as a key piece of evidence in discovering why a 20-year-old man would terrorize an elementary school filled with children. It appears, however, that the shooter did not want his motive unveiled.
“The computer’s hard drive appeared to have been badly damaged with a hammer or screw driver,” law enforcement authorities told ABC News on Monday. Two other sources reported to a local Connecticut paper that the hard drive had been in pieces.
Authorities found the drive over the weekend and have “spent days trying to extract data” according to Yahoo, with little luck. Lanza destroyed the hard drive before heading towards the school and now police believe that they may never discover the motive behind the shootings.
“He was eliminating [investigators’] ability to figure out what websites he had gone to or who he might have been communicating with,” one investigator told Yahoo.
