Newtown gunman apparently called radio station in 2011

NEW HAVEN, Conn. - The man who carried out the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre apparently called a radio station a year earlier to discuss the 2009 mauling of a Connecticut woman by a chimpanzee.

The caller believed to be Adam Lanza speaks softly on a show on the University of Oregon's campus radio station and blames "civilization" for the animal's attack.

It would be the first known public recording of Lanza's voice. The 20-year-old man killed 20 children and six adults at the school on Dec. 14, 2012.

A person with the username "Smiggles" describes making the call afterward in a web posting. State police documents refer to instant messages from "Smiggles" as presumably being from the shooter.

A former classmate, Kyle Kromberg, told the New York Daily News that he recognized the voice as Lanza's.
