NEWTOWN, Conn. — Stylists who cut Adam Lanza's hair for years at a Newtown salon say they recall a teenager who made no eye contact, never spoke and was always with his mother.

Stylist Diane Harty said Tuesday that Lanza came in for haircuts about every six weeks for "a couple of years" in his mid-teens. She says they stopped coming in about three years ago.

Another stylist, Bob Skuba, says Adam would move only "when his mother told him to."

The comments are among the first describing how the Lanzas interacted with each other. Authorities say Adam Lanza killed his mother at their home Friday, then gunned down 26 people at an elementary school in Newtown and killed himself in one of the deadliest shootings in U.S. history.
