"Officially" the State Police Lieutenant said very little and emphasized it was early in the investigation. I'm not saying things don't leak out. They do. But when a reporter badgers an officer pulling a nearby traffic or crowd control detail. You have to use some commonsense, realizing that officer is pretty far out of the loop, too. Nope, they run to the presses, or the camera, or tweet, etc. There are also other witnesses around, some of whom are in total shock.
