Judge puts gag on what police can tell about Sandy Hook massacre

It is now one month four days since the terrible massacre of 26 at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.

Despite the passage of time, questions and skepticism about the official account of what happened not only persist, but are mounting. A main reason for that is the decision by a Connecticut Superior Court judge to gag law enforcement.

The normal sealing period on criminal cases is 14 days. In the case of the Sandy Hook massacre, however, as reported by John Pirro for the ctpost, on Dec. 27, 2012, State Superior Court Judge John Blawie ruled that search warrant affidavits for the cars and home of alleged lone shooter Adam Lanza and his mother would stay sealed for another 90 days, that is, until late March, 2013.

Blawie granted motions filed a day before by State’s Attorney Stephen Sedensky to extend the statutory sealing period for the five warrants, including three for the Lanza family home on Yogonanda Street where 20-year-old Adam had fatally shot his mother, Nancy, four times in the face on the morning of Dec. 14, before embarking on the rampage that left 20 first-graders and six educators dead. The judge’s order also covers the two other search warrants, for the 2010 Honda Civic Adam Lanza drove to the school and for Nancy Lanza‘s 2009 silver BMW, which was parked in the garage attached to the home.

Judge Blawie’s rationale is that “The court finds that due to the nature and circumstances of this case and the ongoing investigation, the state’s interest in continuing nondisclosure substantially outweighs any right to public disclosure at this time.” That is most curious because the alleged perpetrator of the killings, Adam Lanza, allegedly shot himself dead in the school when he heard police arriving — which means there won’t be a criminal trial. Nor are there any lawsuits pending. For that matter, the lawyer who had filed the only lawsuit about the massacre (on behalf of a 6-year-old girl who had witnessed and survived the shootings) quickly withdrew his petition “after facing strong disapproval from people across the country.”

State’s Attorney Stephen Sedensky said in his applications to extend the statutory sealing period, that the affidavits contained information “not known to the general public” and that premature disclosure would “seriously jeopardize the outcome and success of the investigation” by “divulging sensitive and confidential information” known only to investigators. Although no arrests have been made and “none are contemplated,” Sedensky also said the possibility has not been ruled out, and that releasing the information would make it difficult to solve crimes that others might have committed.

All of which leaves us wondering what exactly is the “sensitive and confidential information” “not known to the general public” but “known only to investigators”.

In addition to the questions raised in FOTM’s posts — about police and eyewitness reports of more than one gunman, Sandy Hook memorial and fundraiser webpages and documents dated BEFORE the massacre, the odd behavior of family members of the victims, and the role that professional crisis actors might have played — we have more questions about the massacre. (Go to FOTM’s “Sandy Hook Massacre” page for the questions we’ve raised.) Here is one for today:

Who is Christopher Rodia?

Initial news reports about the massacre, such as this one by Fox News on December 16, 2012, were that sometime before 9:30 a.m. EST on December 14, 2012, Adam Lanza fatally shot his mother, Nancy Lanza, age 52, with a .22 Marlin rifle at their Newtown home. Adam then drove his mother’s car to Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Yahoo! News on Dec. 16, 2012, even had a picture of the car said to be Lanza’s being impounded by police:

On Yahoo! News below the above photo is this: “The car driven by Connecticut school shooter Adam Lanza is towed from Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, December 16, 2012. Lanza carried hundreds of rounds of ammunition when he killed 26 people and then himself at Sandy Hook Elementary School, police said on Sunday.”

Note that the car is a black Honda Civic with license plate “872 YEO”:

Adding more credence to the black Honda being the car driven by Adam Lanza is the video below, which shows the police taking a long gun (allegedly one of the firearms Lanza brought to the school) out of the trunk:

But the audio of the Newtown police scanner recordings on the morning of the Sandy Hook shooting referred to a Christopher Rodia as being the owner of the black Honda Civic.

  • An officer says “Connecticut 872 Y Yankee, E Echo, O Oscar, 872 YEO possible suspect vehicle.”
  • At 2:04, an officer with a deep voice, clearly NOT the officer that made the previous 872 YEO license plate report, says: “run the eh… operator, he’s a Florida license Connecticut as well, first name is Rodia, R-O-D-I-A, Christopher A. Date of birth is, eh… August 6th ’69.”

There is a Christo­pher A. Rodia in Connecticut, born in 1969. If you Google his name you will find a report by WTNH8 on July 29, 2012, about Rodia and a young woman (reportedly his niece) being arrested for stealing copper from a home construction site in Westport, CT: “Christopher Rodia, 42, was charged with 3rd degree larceny, conspiracy to commit larceny, criminal mischief, possession of narcotics and failure to carry prescription drugs in a prescribed container.” Their court date was set for August 7, 2012. Here’s Rodia’s mugshot:

UPDATE (Jan. 19, 2013):

We’ve found more info after we first published this post. Turns out Adam’s mom, Nancy Lanza, did own a black Honda Civic, as you can see in this document of her property/vehicle revenue record:

Nancy Lanza tax bill

As you can see in the document below, Christopher Rodia owns a 1999 Chevrolet:

All of which just goes to show that rumors proliferate in the absence of official police information because they are gagged by Judge John Blawie!

  1. Great catch Eowyn and Steve! This thing wildly suspicious!
    If they wanted to put this stuff to rest they would be opening up instead of covering up.
    (unless, cough cough, they’re hiding something)

  2. “who stolla my honda?” as the the good old pentecostal joke goes.

  3. One cannot make any sense of the above facts! Thank you Dr. Eowyn and Steve for exposing more facts that are suspicious and that are deliberately not addressed and not disclosed. Once again, the more that is dug up, the more questions arise.

  4. Original source of recorded request for the license plate information…

    Dispatcher over the radio saying that the car belonged to a Christopher Chris A. Rodia
    License Plate CT 872-YEO, not Nancy Lanza’s vehicle as Law enforcement had later claimed?

    • jericho, Awesome link. I could not make out garbled words till I saw them written down in vid. This put’s Rodia at scene and as a suspect as well.
      Why the hell was he not arrested if car was linked to him and loaded shotgun in trunk.
      This stinks really bad. Thanks, Steve

      • This whole event stinks to high heaven . I read an article on jimstone freelance .com and there were 33 questions that he or a poster came up with about the ” shooting ” . Really made you think somethings rotten up there . Just my opinion .

    • Have you listened to the unscrambled version of Rodia’s ID?

  5. Newtown, CT Aurora, CO Sikh Temple in WI Giffords shooting in AZ…. in the words of V. Lombardi … “What in the hell is going on here????? I presuppose the previous mkUltra escaped lab rats didn’t evoke the prescribed intended public outcry for Zero to wipe his arse with the Second Amendment. He had to raise the stakes abit with elementary school children, super concentrated Kool-Aid, and professional crisis actors to finally get the most visible useful idiots in line… see Herr Bloomberg, Barney Fife Biden and his Klan.

  6. I want to know whose name the insurance policy was under for the Honda. If Rodia was there that would explain a lot.

  7. With the perp dead, what exactly are the trying to keep from being public?

  8. If you do a little more research into the rodia part of the story, you will find that this was a completely different incident that resulted in his name being run. The evidence shows he was getting a verbal warning from an officer in greenwich at the time of the shooting. It seems we’ll have to wait a couple more months to find out whom this black Nissan belongs to.

    • Your source(s)?

      At least get the car’s make right. It’s a Honda, not a Nissan.

    • Pnutt, I’ve been digging and you might be right. Well I don’t know about a verbal warning, so could provide a source for this.
      It’s very confusing the police chatter and they run the plate, then Rodia.
      Seems connected. Except I may have just found out who owns what cars.
      It’s looking like it’s Lanza’s Mothers car.
      We’ll update post with the new info.

  10. Maybe Judge “Owie-Yowie-Wowie” & State’s Attorney “Seditious-Sedensky” wanted all records sealed a bit longer to give them time to go in & hack ‘n change those Vehicle Tax Payment Records so that Lanza now became owner of the Honda & Rodia inherited a 13-yo junker ’99 Chevy. :)

  11. The judges decision stinks of a cover-up! All I have to say is, almost two years ago, Obama asked Eric Holder to find a way to go around the Second Amendment to get guns, and you may recall that Holder openly admitted in an interview several years ago: “We have to ‘brainwash people to turn against guns.’” Respectfully, to the victims, there’s no better way to do it than to stage the deaths of 20 children. I for one, do not believe the official story; especially, in light of people claiming their child is alive and well, and didn’t even attend Sandy Hook, yet their child’s picture was used and claimed as a victim. And don’t get my started on the “terrible” crisis actors they’ve been using…..Robby Parker–you’re a traitor to your country, whatever your real name is!!!

  12. The Rodia angle has been properly explained in a compelling web piece….indicating that the police frequency used to communicate, was an open channel used to communicate to many, many police cars at the same time. Because of this, different communications were being exchanged at the same time. Taken out of fuller context, ( the web site had transcription of the fuller context), one can be led to believe that Rodia’s name was given as answer to the question of who owns the car. It was this multi-communication fuzzle that brought Rodia into the picture. As the record above shows, the car was properly registered in CT by Adam Lanza’s mother. Even if this point is cleared-up, I agree there are too many other loose ends that can easily lead one to believe “fake”…”hoax”…. “training exercise”…or worse ( conspiracy to defraud the general public to promote alternate agenda, aka gun controi, etc).

  13. In order for this theory to work, it requires that the request to run the 872 plate be ignored. That’s very silly, of course.
