The Facts About the Connecticut Shooting To Date

Let's look at the facts so far.

Adam Lanza age 20, lived with his mother, Nancy Lanza at their home in Newtown, Connecticut. Nancy was a school teacher at Sandy Hook. She also was a collector of guns and the registered owner of the two handguns used in the killings (see: http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/crime/adam-lanza-is-reca... )

Apparently there was a third gun, a semi-automatic assault rife in Adam's possession that was found in the back of Nancy's car that Adam drove to the school (see: http://www.myfoxdetroit.com/story/20350339/more-information-... ). The rifle was not used in the murders of the children (see: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/12/15/nyregion/shooting-reported... ).

Adam attended Sandy Hook elementary school as a child along with his brother, Ryan (see: http://www.newsday.com/news/nation/sandy-hook-elementary-bus... ). Ryan age 24, had moved to Hoboken, New Jersey.

Peter Lanza the father, was divorced from Nancy and remarried. He lives in Stamford, Connecticut (see: http://www.stamfordadvocate.com/news/article/Father-of-Newto... )

A total of 26 people were killed by Adam. Nancy Lanza was killed in her home. Adam's body was found at the school with a self-inflicted gunshot wound along with the 20 school children he murdered between 2 classrooms. The principal of the school and the school psychologist were also killed. The names of the other three adults killed have not been revealed as of yet. One teacher was wounded and survived.

The shootings had been reported to have occurred over a period of 1 hour, from 9:30am until 10:30am (see: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/12/15/nyregion/shooting-reported... )

It was reported that Adam was a quiet but intelligent child and excelled at school. No facts have been reported as to the motive for the murders.

Feel free to add facts about this case as they are uncovered.

My sister works at the high school and had the same thought... He would have HAD to drive past. I've heard a couple of theories, including that his mother volunteered at the school (and his going there was driven by jealously), but also that police presence at the high school drove him elsewhere (basically he didn't want to go into a place where there could be anyone who would fight back). Unfortunately, I'm not sure that we'll ever know the answer.

There is Nancy Lanza on FB

There is Nancy Lanza on FB from Conn but it says she works at Morgan Stanley. Not sure if its her.

Several facts missing

Adam was autistic and had a "personality disorder" meaning he was almost certainly on SSRI drugs.

The school psychologist was among those Adam targeted.
A second shooter was ARRESTED, not just rumored.

The entire incident was foreshadowed in "The Hunger Games" and the author lives in Sandy Hook

Yes, in the early

part of the event they interviewed a little boy who said when they took him to the fire station the police had someone on the ground in handcuffs.

Wonder who that was?

With the Aurora shooting there was an accomplice seen, or rumored to be seen...

I think it is more likely

I think it is more likely that they would use psychotropic drugs rather than SSRIs - not trying to split hairs but they are different, though both have blackbox warnings.

Here is an article about James Holmes, the Aurora Colorado movie theater shooter (see: http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/12/11/us-usa-shooting-de... )

Holmes was a psychiatric patient of one Dr. Lynne Fenton. I think we have a similar profile concerning these two killers.

Another similarity between Holmes and Lanza

There are rumors flying around that Lanza's father was ALSO scheduled to testify in the LIBOR scandal. He is the tax director for GE.

Colchester, New London County, Connecticut

There's the missing link!

I knew he was a GE Tax man, I did not know about the LIBOR connection. I'm sure FOX will cover that angle...

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

Rumors are just that

I want to see verifiable proof of his name testifying about LIBOR, until then its just not true. I think the Nancy Lanza that worked for Morgan Stanley makes more sense. she was no longer employed if i recall. But what was the purpose of it?

Its a start

But keep digging
