Sandy Hook families each gets $94k to settle lawsuits against Lanza estate

Americans are notorious for our litigiousness. One of the many curiosities of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings of December 14, 2012, is that, unlike other school shootings, the families of the alleged victims of alleged killer Adam Lanza had not filed lawsuits. (See my post of March 29, 2014, “Why are there no Sandy Hook lawsuits?”)

Two long years after the alleged massacre, however, some of them finally sued, although each victim family had already received MILLIONS of dollars in donations from individual Facebook sites, organized Sandy Hook charities like United Way, and the $11.6 million Sandy Hook School Support Fund. Some of those Facebook and charity sites, curiously, had been created before the alleged massacre, that is, before the alleged victims actually became victims. See:

Three groups of defendants are the targets of lawsuits:

  1. The manufacturer, distributor and seller of the Bushmaster AR-15 rifle allegedly wielded by Lanza.
  2. The town of Newtown and its board of education.
  3. The estate of Nancy Lanza — Adam’s mother whom he allegedly had killed before he allegedly drove to the school — for carelessly allowing her son access to the Bushmaster AR-15 rifle that he allegedly used in the alleged massacre.

For more on the above lawsuits, please see my post “Sandy Hook families sue Lanza estate, as Newtown demolishes the Lanza home”.

Andrew Gorosko reports for The Newtown Bee, August 3, 2015, that the 16 plaintiffs in lawsuits that were filed earlier this year against the estate of Nancy Lanza would receive nearly $94,000 each in a proposed settlement of those legal claims., according to a July 31 letter by Angelo A. Ziotas to Probate Judge Joseph A. Egan, Jr.

Ziotas is the attorney representing one of the litigants, the estate of child victim James Mattioli.

The other plaintiffs are:

  • The estates (i.e., families) of child victims Emilie Parker, Grace McDonnell, Jack Pinto, Charlotte Bacon, Jessica Rekos, Daniel Barden, Dylan Hockley, Jesse Lewis, and Benjamin Wheeler.
  • The estates of adult teachers Rachel D’Avino, Lauren Rousseau, Mary Sherlach, and Victoria Soto.
  • Teachers Natalie Hammond and Deborah Pisani whom Lanza had wounded, not killed.

According to Ziotas, the 16 plaintiffs each would receive equal portions of the $1.5 million value of a home insurance policy that Nancy Lanza had on her house at 36 Yogananda Street. When that amount is divided by 16, each of the plaintiffs would receive $93,750 from the insurance firm.

According to the lawsuit filed by the majority of the plaintiffs, Nancy Lanza, at some point before the shooting incident, bought a Bushmaster AR-15-style semiautomatic rifle. The suit states: “The weapon was an assault rifle designed for military use in modern warfare. The Bushmaster was built to spray rapid fire and pierce body armor in order to inflict maximum casualties on the battlefield, but was sold to the general public by its manufacturer and various other business entities, even though it had no practical civilian purpose for self-defense or reasonable sporting activities.”

The lawsuit claims that Nancy Lanza carelessly and with negligence kept the gun stored unsecured in her home where Adam Lanza had access to it, which was a “substantial factor” in the deaths and injuries of the plaintiffs. The lawsuit filed on behalf of the Mattioli estate states that Nancy allowed her son access to the weapon although she knew or should have known that “his mental and emotional condition made him a danger to others.”

The defendant named in the lawsuits is Samuel Starks, the administrator of Nancy Lanza’s estate, who estimated the family home at 36 Yogananda St., to be worth about $64,000. But the house, in an affluent section of Newtown, was assessed at $523,000 at one point, according to The Hartford Courant .

Vision Government Solutions had the ownership history for 36 Yogananda as:

  • Sold to Estate of Nancy J. Lanza on 2/1/2013 for $0
  • Sold to Nancy Lanza on 2/8/2011 for $0

Note: When a house changes hands from one family member to another, as in a divorce, the sale of the property is usually listed as $0. See also “The strange purchase date and price of Sandy Hook homes.”

The last time I checked, the ownership of the house had reverted to Ryan Lanza, Adam’s older brother. But The Courant says that “The house was donated to the town [Newtown] by a New Jersey bank that took over the mortgage that Nancy Lanza had on the property.”

In January, the city of Newtown voted to demolish the Lanza home, just as the city had also demolished Sandy Hook Elementary School (SHES), allegedly for asbestos contamination (see “Was Sandy Hook Elementary School already abandoned before the massacre“).

Consigli Construction

The construction workers of Consigli Construction who tore down the school were all sworn to secrecy by signing confidentiality agreements forbidding public discussion of the site, photographs or disclosure of any information about the building. Why the secrecy?

Note: The Italian word consigli means “advice or counsel,” as in consigliere to a mafia don or crime boss.

The family-owned Consigli Construction Construction is also building a new replacement SHES, with a generous grant of $50 million from the State of Connecticut, i.e., Connecticut taxpayers.

According to The Newtown Bee, in 2002, engineering consultants had recommended to the Sandy Hook school district that SHES be merely renovated with upgrades to the school’s ventilation systems to meet indoor air quality codes, at a cost of $5 million. The work was supposed to have begun in 2010, over a 9-month period, which meant Sandy Hook Elementary School likely was already abandoned before the massacre.

So the same construction company has the lucrative contract to both tear down the asbestos-contaminated old school and rebuild a $50 million new one. Pretty neat deal.

In October 2014, Consigli broke ground for the new $50 million 87,000 sq.-ft. state-of-the-art school to replace the old 70,000 sq. ft. building. The new building “will include three classroom wings, two of which are two-stories that overlook central courtyards. Breakout spaces in the form of treehouses will be built to create an alternate learning environment. The new school will incorporate the most current and advanced educational approaches, security and design.”

Sandy Hook’s dead school principal interviewed about massacre one day before the massacre

The Sandy Hook Elementary School (SHES) shooting massacre on December 14, 2012, is full of oddities — what former Florida state trooper Wolfgang Halbig calls “things that don’t make sense.”

Fellowship of the Minds has chronicled many of those oddities. Go to our “Sandy Hook Massacre” page.

Here’s another thing that doesn’t make sense.

Dawn Hochsprung

Dawn Hochsprung, the 47–year-old principal of SHES, was one of the six adults whom Lanza shot to death on the morning of Friday, December 14, 2012.

As recounted by ABC News’ Katie Kindelan:

“Sandy Hook Elementary School principal Dawn Hochsprung devoted her life to helping students as an educator. In her final moments, Hochsprung, 47, reportedly gave her life Friday to save the lives of countless students and teachers when she sprung from a conference room at the sound of gunshots and confronted head-on the armed shooter who had barged into the school.”

So it is curious, to say the least, that on the day of the massacre, the local paper, The Newtown Bee, ran an online story, “Shooting Reported Sandy Hook Elementary School,” which quoted the same Hochsprung as a source:

 Sandy Hook School Principal Dawn Hochsprung told The Bee that a masked man entered the school with a rifle and started shooting multiple shows—more than she could count—that went ‘on and on.’

According to blogger swansong of InsanemediaThe Bee retracted the story three days later, but not before swansong had captured a screenshot of the original article, and circled in yellow the sentence referring to Hochsprung.

↓click image to enlarge↓

Newtown Bee Dawn Hochsprung

On December 31, 2012, Newtown Bee published this retraction and apology:

An early online report from the scene at the December 14 shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School quoted a woman who identified herself to our reporter as the principal of the school. The woman was not the school’s principal, Dawn Hochsprung, who was killed in the Friday morning attack. The quote was removed from subsequent online versions of the story, but the original story did remain in our online archive for three days before being deleted.

We apologize for whatever confusion this may have caused our readers and for any pain or anguish it may have cause the Hochsprung family.

Swansong points out that Newtown is a small town of about 27,000 people and that The Newtown Bee is located less than 1½ miles from SHES and had run innumerable stories on the school, many of which featured Dawn Hochsprung. In other words, Hochsprung was well known by The Bee’s reporters.

Even more remarkable is swansong’s discovery that the Bing cache date for The Bee’s original report that quoted Hochsprung was December 13, 2012—one day before the massacre. Here’s a screenshot swansong took of the cache:

Bing cache of Newtown Bee story

In a follow-up, Newtown Bee’s editor, Curtiss Clark, told swansong that John Voket was “the reporter” who spoke with the woman mistaken for Hochsprung, and that Voket met the woman face to face. Since Voket had worked at The Bee for 8 years as its associate editor and is a radio announcer and active in the community, it strains credibility that Voket had mistaken the woman for Hochsprung. In an email to swansong, Voket attributed his mistake to the chaos and commotion of that day, and to the woman, whose name he would not divulge, having “a number of physical attributes” in common with Hochsprung.

Taking to YouTube as a platform one Joe Jones of Kentucky thinks the tragic incident was carried out with the aid of “crisis actors” at a building “decommissioned several years prior to the day of the event” because of “asbestos and mold.” By late 2012 “the building was just being used for storage,” he says in the video.

idolatryThey had the Patriarchs, they had Moses, they had the Law, the had the Psalms and Proverbs, they had the Prophets, they had Temple, they had the Priesthood, they had their great Kings and their armies.

But hidden from sight they sought to please demons.

The parallels should chill any American to the core.

Then the Lord said to me, “There is a conspiracy among the people of Judah and those who live in Jerusalem.

They have returned to the sins of their ancestors, who refused to listen to my words. They have followed other gods to serve them. Both Israel and Judah have broken the covenant I made with their ancestors.

Therefore this is what the Lord says: ‘I will bring on them a disaster they cannot escape. Although they cry out to me, I will not listen to them.

The towns of Judah and the people of Jerusalem will go and cry out to the gods to whom they burn incense, but they will not help them at all when disaster strikes.

You, Judah, have as many gods as you have towns; and the altars you have set up to burn incense to that shameful god Baal are as many as the streets of Jerusalem.’

“Do not pray for this people or offer any plea or petition for them, because I will not listen when they call to me in the time of their distress.”

Sandy Hook: Trick or Treason?

Sandy Hoax

Sandy Hook: Trick or Treason?

By “Barry Soetoro, Esq”

Sandy Hook is coming apart like a North Korean Rolex.

But the government doesn’t seem to care. The Gun Grab Roadshow is full steam ahead – with a barrage of Fake Shootings.

The Regime has unlimited funds, dozens of hoax scripts, and dirty operatives (blackmailed? bribed? both?) to scam you out of your guns.

Recently, I spoke with Mike Shoesmith about Sandy Hoax and the Boston Hoaxathon. If you missed our conversation, it’s an eye-opener. We cover everything from fake 9/11 survivors to the upcoming (fake) “shopping mall attacks.”  We also explore forensic proof that Sandy Hook was staged.

Sandy Hook UPDATE

The latest Newtown events are beyond ludicrous. See if you can follow this:

After 19 months, a judge finally orders a response to (citizen investigator) Wolfgang Halbig’s FOIA requests. But the day before the hearing, it’s suddenly canceled because attorney Monte Frank has to “ride a bike for gun control.”

Finally, the FOIA hearing happens. Newtown CT “officials” stammer and fail to answer simple questions, making it obvious Sandy Hook is a hoax.

During his bizarre testimony, Newtown Police Chief Kehoe panics and turns purple:

Chief Kehoe scurries out of there. The night before Hearing #2, Chief Kehoe “retires from his job.”

But before Hearing #2 can happen, Newtown Police Officers suddenly GET ARRESTED for “dealing steroids/Oxycodon out of the Police Station.” In Operation Juice Box, eight people are arrested including a Police Dispatcher and a Sergeant. Are they arrested because (i) They’re guilty of drug dealing, (ii) They’re totally innocent but might spill the Sandy Hoax beans, (iii) They participated in Sandy Hoax (Treason) and might squeal, or (iv) They’re still playing along with Sandy Hoax, but have sub-par acting skills that won’t fly in the next FOIA hearing?

Either way, those arrested officers are removed from the public arena – joining Police Chief Kehoe (retired); CT State Trooper “William Podgorski” (dropped dead at 49); cop “Michael Compare” (killed himself, age 36); and Lieutenant Paul Vance (State Police Spokesman, suddenly demoted to Traffic Division) on the list of “hard to find” witnesses.

Newtown is running out of places to hide its operatives – people are tougher to hide than evidence. Ever wonder why Sandy Hook Elementary and Adam Lanza’s house were suddenly bulldozed? Hint: neither place contained DNA/fingerprints of the (fictional) occupants. Anyone sneaking inside with a fingerprint or DNA kit would find zero evidence of boogeyman Adam, or his victims. Solution? Destroy both crime scenes and truck them off – like WTC debris.

So, weeks later, in the second FOIA hearing, (Newtown CT official) Patricia Llodra states on the record that DHS installed the famous “Everyone Must Check In” sign – a stunning admission that DHS participated in Sandy Hoax. That’s no shock, since DHS recently admitted staging two years of Fake Shootings In Shopping Malls.  I believe those fake shooting “drills” are the “movie production” for the much-hyped “ISIS Shopping Mall Attacks.” Coming Soon, to a TV near you.

But if all that isn’t suspicious enough, watch the Governor of Connecticut blatantly lie when confronted with his own Sandy Hook statements. While in town, Wolfgang Halbig shows up at CT Governor Malloy’s office.  Watch Governor Malloy lie, denying his own (televised) announcement:

I’m dazzled by Sandy Hoax puppets, as they leap through hoops to grab your guns. It’s almost as if they’re motivated by fear – not just the joy of a gunless Utopia. But fear of what? Fear of prosecution, for hidden crimes they committed? Fear of exposure for (alleged) “prior bad acts,” like Dennis Hastert?

Why Are Officials Lying?

Some speculate that certain politicians and Crisis Actors are recruited because they committed (hidden) crimes. That way, they’re under total control by their handlers – who threaten to expose their puppets unless they follow orders. If that theory is true, it means the biggest resume enhancers would be rape and murder. After getting “hired,” such a puppet would face two choices: Obey; or get exposed and go to prison.

The threat of long prison sentences for “prior bad acts” might explain why so many politicians and operatives display odd/risky behavior – such as promoting fake shootings on TV.

According to American Thinker, Newtown parent Neil Heslin is allegedly a “felon with a long rap sheet of fraud, substance abuse and reckless behavior.”  Heslin is the purported father of Newtown “victim” Jesse Lewis. As a felon, Heslin can’t own a gun.  But Heslin “appears to have a new career lobbying against honest citizens having the right to own guns.” Ammoland has more coverage of Neil Heslin’s (alleged) financial/civil and child support issues.

Did the corrupt DOJ take a break from Mexican gun-running, to cut deals with felons – ensuring their gleeful participation in fake shootings like Sandy Hoax?

Maybe that’s why FBI reports “ZERO” murders for Newtown CT (2012). Maybe that’s why NO DEATH CERTIFICATES exist for Nancy Lanza, Adam Lanza, or his 26 “victims.” I’m not surprised the Regime won’t forge 28 Death Certificates – look at the headache they got from forging ONE Hawaii Birth Certificate.

Others believe that Sandy Hook “parents” are simply DHS operatives, paid to disarm us.

Recently, that theory gained steam when someone discovered that “Sandy Hook Dad” Lenny Pozner’s Website Redirects To NSA. At that link, scroll down for screenshots – captured before NSA quickly hid their mistake. Lenny Pozner’s son is “Noah Pozner,” who dies every two years in different school shootings around the world – on a bizarre “School Massacre World Tour.” Noah “died” at Sandy Hook, then “died” again 2 years later in Pakistan.

Oh, I almost forgot. After the third (and final) FOIA hearing, Newtown lawyer Monte Frank was suddenly appointed President of the Connecticut Bar Association. Some believe Monte Frank’s sudden career luck was a reward for his role in the Sandy Hoax coverup:

We’re In A Race

A few years ago, folks were still asleep. But now, these False Flags smell so bad, folks are waking up. We’ve reached a new level of awareness – but being aware of Treason doesn’t fix the Treason.

So, what’s our next step? How do we (i) Stop these fake shootings, and (ii) Hold the scam artists accountable for betraying America?

For many, a major step will be realizing who the real terrorists are. Someone is planning these fake shootings. Someone is funding them. Someone is covering them up. Plus, local and State police are allowing them to continue.

Not to mention the Gun Grab Roadshow actors’ troupe.  Are these players threatened under National Security “Capstone Event” directives? Are they blackmailed, using their own prior crimes?

Why are children getting strong-armed on live TV during “Sandy Hook interviews?”

And where’s NRA? Are they blackmailed too? How does the “National Rifle Association” pretend they don’t notice these fake shootings, targeting the AR15 for extinction?

I don’t think the Regime can blackmail the entire population of the USA. I don’t think the Regime can openly threaten the population.  Thus, the Regime operates by intimidation – and for the deepest betrayals, by secrecy.

Step 1 is piercing that veil of stealth, to expose the rot.

Step 2 is spreading the word.

But time is short. Can America wake up before Traitors disarm us?  The Regime has managed to contain the truth about Fake Shootings and Hoaxes – in a “free country” of 300 million people. They’ve accomplished this via Censorship, Disinformation, and Psychological Warfare:

Since the Regime has the MSM/Web locked down with shills (and NCS suppressing/deleting material), I’m not sure we can awaken 320 million Americans quickly enough by posting articles.

We don’t have that much time. We need a game changer.

I’m open to suggestions.

(MUST SEE) Sandy Hook DOCUMENTARY

Consider sharing these Sandy Hook Memes:

Does this couple look like their child got “murdered” by Adam Lanza?

Here’s WHY Police magically found a shotgun in Adam Lanza’s car – 9 hours after the (fake) shooting:

Why did Lieutenant Vance take the enormous risk of lying to 300 million Americans about Sandy Hoax? And why did Vance threaten us on TV?

Lieutenant Vance might be next to get “relocated” (aka vanished) by DHS, to join fellow “State Trooper” William Podgorski in Missing Person Land:

Paging NRA – anyone home? The “National Rifle Association” should be renamed the “National Denial Association.” Instead of annual membership dues, consider mailing them a cancellation note with this question: “WHY IS NRA IGNORING GUN-GRAB HOAXES SUCH AS SANDY HOOK?”

(Boogeyman) Adam Lanza didn’t “blast his way through the plate glass Sandy Hook school entrance with his AR15.” Many believe that Police/DHS staged the attack by firing a (police tactical) 12-gauge breaching round through the window. See the telltale metal powder embedded in the foyer’s magazine display rack?


Anyone found those 500 invisible students? They’ve been missing for 2 years. No big deal:

The Gun Grab Roadshow uses Crisis Actors and fake victims to scam you:

Sick traitors use Nazi-style propaganda – and children – to deceive you. Remember the kids coerced in TV interviews:

Give the Regime a break.  They’re planting AR15’s as fast as they can:

“Noah Pozner” was supposedly “killed” at Sandy Hook (before he got killed AGAIN two years later in Pakistan). Noah’s “uncle,” Alexis Haller, is an attorney representing the Vatican in some interesting cases. Noah’s “mother” is Veronique Pozner, aka Haller, aka Vabner. Veronique has a long history of gun-grab activism. Veronique’s first husband was allegedly Reuben Vabner, VP of Royal Bank of Scotland (the alleged 3rd dirtiest bank in the world):

Why does “Nicole Hockley” tour America on Air Force One, lobbying against guns? Isn’t it illegal for the President to fly lobbyists around the USA?

We always give Lieutenant Vance the last word:

Sandy Hook dad had choke-hold on daughter during media interview

There are so many oddities about Sandy Hook: the lack of signs of grief on the part of parents of the child victims; the victims’ RIP/donation webpages created days before the shooting; Associated Press stories and photos of Sandy Hook which predate the shooting by days and even weeks; the remarkable resemblance of Sandy Hook parents to professional crisis actors; alleged killer Adam Lanza’s SSDI date-of-death as one day before the shooting; CNN’s fake footage of first responders running into the school; the refusal of state and local authorities to release death certificates of not just the victims but of Lanza himself; the refusal of state and local authorities to answer questions raised by citizens about the shooting; constructions workers who demolished the school being sworn to confidentiality; one of the child victims (Noah Pozner) being included among those killed in a school shooting 2 years later in Pakistan; evidence that Sandy Hook Elementary School had been unoccupied before the shooting; and more….

Here’s another oddity that recently was brought to my attention — and it’s disturbing.

Joseph and Lynn Wasik, parents of Alexis, who was then a third-grader at Sandy Hook Elementary School, were one of the first people to be interviewed by the press. Like the ubiquitous Gene Rosen but less famous, the Wasiks were also regular interviewees of the media about the shooting. Some examples:

From Washington Post, on the day of the shooting, Dec. 14, 2012:

Joseph Wasik, 42, wasn’t too worried when his wife, Lynn, called to say she had received a text alert from the school. Like schools nationwide, Sandy Hook had been on lockdown before, always for events that turned out to be nothing. Earlier this year, reports of a loose bear seen in town had activated the system.

But when Wasik flipped open his laptop and saw a report of a school shooting, he got in his car and headed to Sandy Hook, where his daughter Alexis is a third-grader. “I flew down there,” said Wasik, an electrician.

When he arrived, the backup of emergency vehicles and panicked parents extended half a mile beyond the school. Wasik parked on the first lawn he could find and ran. “It was chaos, cars blocking everything, a SWAT team,” he said. “All these parents screaming for their kids.”

From New Haven Register, Dec. 22, 2012:

Joe Wasik, a 42-year-old electrician and longtime resident of the town, told the Wall Street Journal he and his wife were struggling with how to talk to their daughter about what had happened, and how to feel about trying to return to school life, and normalcy.

“It’s basically like a little Vermont,” Wasik said. “You have general stores, you see your friends and neighbors in town. You just never thought anything like this would happen here.”

From Fox News, Dec. 16, 2012:

[Reporter Chris] WALLACE: Lynn and Joe, and, little Alexis, I see in front of you — does Alexis want to talk about it? And if so, what are you telling her?

WASIK: It — as far as talking, we are breaking it to her slowly, we’re not trying to pry too much. If she is forthcoming and telling us stuff, we’re allowing it — you know, letting her come out slowly. We’re not prying into her, you know, what happened. We don’t want to do that. […]

WALLACE: And Lynn and Joe, there were other remarkable acts of bravery, none greater than the principal, Dawn Hochsprung. And we understand when she heard the gunfire, she ran towards it, not away from it, and apparently lunged at the shooter trying to save the students and ended up losing her own life.

Tell us about Dawn.

LYNN WASIK, MOTHER OF SANDY HOOK ELEMENTARY SCHOOL: Dawn was phenomenal, I had sent here just about every morning. Alexis is part of the before and after-school program at the school and every day I would see Dawn. It was always — Dawn has got an infectious smile and she just — was just so caring and she got down to the children’s level. She participated with — in so many activities with the children. And, she dressed up when they had a sock hop and went in and danced with the children and this year, if they sold 3,000 books, she dressed up as a book fairy.

And she just — she just was such a wonderful, wonderful, warm person. And, there’s no words to describe the loss that we have all as a community felt, and not only her family. […]

WALLACE: And, Lynn, finally, and I guess this is the hardest question, how do you make sense of this?

L. WASIK: There is no sense. There is absolutely no sense to this. And it is — I think I’m still very numb. And just like Robert has said, we’re blessed with having our daughter here with us today, but how many families and friends and everyone within the community didn’t go home with their children Friday night.

And it is just very, very heart-wrenching and there is no — there’s no way to make any sense of anything, what this person has done, not only to families, but to a community, to a nation, and it’s just — it’s just unfathomable. You just don’t — who would have ever thought here in this little town of Newtown, of 20,000 some-odd people, and that’s why people are here, it is a small community, it’s a wonderful community, where people are — they come together.

And, as we were coming through town, there is a banner that says, we will — we will be strong, as a community. We will remain strong. And, we will always be here, for anyone and everyone, within our community and, within our school.

This is the Fox News video of Chris Wallace’s interview of the Wasiks. The voice you hear is of a concerned citizen calling Connecticut’s child protective services about Joseph Wasik’s abuse of Alexis. (To see the original Fox News video, go here.)

Note how during the entire interview, Joseph kept his left hand right at his daughter’s throat. Alexis repeatedly tried to move his hand away….

Wasicks1

But each time the girl tried to free herself from Joseph’s hand at her throat, the man not only moved his hand back but clasped his left hand with his right hand to better control Alexis.

Wasicks2

For her part, Lynn reinforced Joseph’s choke-hold on their daughter by putting her hand on her husband’s left arm, thereby increasing the weight of Joseph’s choke-hold on Alexis’ throat. Poor girl.

Something very wrong was going on.
