(CNN) — Investigators have so far been unable to retrieve data from a computer taken from Connecticut school gunman Adam Lanza’s home, a law enforcement official said.

It appears that Lanza had smashed the computer, extensively damaging the hard drive, and the FBI is assisting Connecticut State Police in trying to retrieve data from the computer, the official said.
