3 days ago, I did a post on my discovery that, according to the information on genealogybank.com, the SSDI (Social Security Death Index) had changed the date-of-death for alleged Sandy Hook mass murderer Adam Lanza, from the previous Dec. 13, 2012 to Dec. 14, 2012. (Click here for my post.)
The date-of-death of Dec. 13, 2012 is significant because that means Lanza had died a day BEFORE the massacre of 20 first-grade school children (and 6 adults) which had ignited a nationwide move to “control” guns and ban “assault weapons.”
On January 20, 2013, I had taken a screenshot of that Dec. 13, 2012 SSDI record precisely as a safeguard against that record being altered or scrubbed. Here it is:
Well, it appears SSDI had communicated the change of date, from Dec. 13, 2012 to Dec. 14, 2012, only to genealogybank.com.
Sharp-eyed FOTM reader kab made an important discovery:
Another website, Ancestry.com, still has the SSDI date-of-death for Adam Lanza as December 13, 2012!
I just took a screenshot of that Ancestry.com page, as proof and also as a prophylactic against Ancestry.com altering or scrubbing that information in the days to come — as I’m sure it will.
Note that I had taken the screenshot at 7:08AM, on 2/5/2013.
When one sets out to deceive, it’d be helpful to get the story straight.
GenealogyBank.com and Ancestry.com really must do better at coordinating with each other. Tssk, tssk.
A big h/t to kab! 😀
Update (Feb. 18, 2013):
In a comment, a reader asked if Ancestry.com still has Lanza’s date-of-death as Dec. 13, 2012.
As we had expected, Ancestry.com finally got caught up with genealogybank.com. Ancestry.com now says SSDI’s date-of-death (DoD) for Adam Lanza is Dec. 14, 2012. LOL
Here’s a screenshot I just took of the Ancestry.com page with the new DoD:
