TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - We know more about one of Tucson's saddest days now. Evidence photos unsealed today show views of the January 8th mass shooting only investigators, and some of the victims saw before.
Now that Jared Loughner is in prison for life, we are able to see more of the detail of the shooting, and how deputies turned chaos, into a case.
We remember first responders working to save lives and gather clues.
Now pictures the Sheriff's Department released show hints of a peaceful morning and the horror that followed.
Here are the remains of a weekend snack, surrounded by gloves paramedics left behind.
The gun Jared Loughner used to shoot 19 people, and kill 6.
Mavy Stoddard is seeing the gun for the first time since she saw Loughner shoot her and kill her husband Dory.
Is it chilling to see that weapon, and know what it did?
"Yes, but not as much as I would have thought it does because actually it's just a gun. It needs a person behind it before it's dangerous."
Evidence photos show one 30 round magazine empty, and others loaded.
To organize a flood of information, deputies used a car like a giant white board. You see Loughner's name and his record, even a crude diagram of where the victims fell. The G-G apparently stands for Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.
There is the hotel room Loughner checked into after midnight, to bide his time before he got in this taxi, to turn a community meeting into a slaughter.
Mavy Stoddard doesn't need new photos to remember, what happened to her, her husband, and everyone else that day.
"I've tried to put Dory in a space in my mind where I can laugh about the things we did, instead of cry, and I'm getting there."
Mavy Stoddard takes comfort and honor's her husband's memory by working for background checks and limiting high capacity ammo magazines like Loughner used. Other victims like Daniel Hernandez, Pat Maisch and Colonel Bill Badger were in Nevada Tuesday working on tougher gun laws there.
