Dean Garrison of D.C. Clothesline is a good friend of FOTM.
Dean received an email from a man whom I’ll refer to as Mr. X, who says he was an employee in a department of the Connecticut state government when the Sandy Hook massacre occurred. Mr. X says that on December 15, 2012, a day after the murder of 26 children and staff at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT, he had overheard a conversation between two senior state officials who were making light of the massacre, implying that the whole tragedy was contrived.
In order to protect his source, Dean redacted Mr. X’s name, the department in which he worked, and other information that might reveal Mr. X’s identity.
Below is Mr. X’s email to Dean (in italics); I colored the most important paragraph in red. FOTM is grateful to Dean for allowing us to re-publish the email.

I am neither a paid researcher nor journalist. I am a citizen of the State of CT- and I was a State of CT employee for [xx-withheld] years, and recently resigned to pursue a career in personal/private professional investigations after, sadly, seeing the way my efforts were change were not only thwarted, but held in contempt. The frustration and cognitive (moral) dissonance of working for a [withheld-department that employed him] which was acting in ways so as to support [changed- term used generally means “immoral”] activity made me feel like a hypocrite, and I left a financially comfortable job to seek something more personally satisfying. I add this background because I’d like you to know I am college educated, worked for the government (got quite the inside look at some things, nothing huge, I wasn’t that important but enough), and continue to pursue higher education and my hobby of investigating. I do not simply buy the news I am fed, but likewise I do not simply buy a conspiracy theory. I inductively do my own investigating, research, collect data, etc. I like #s, charts, hard facts. I love a good mystery.
The day after 12/14/12- Sandy Hook- I overheard a snippet of a conversation between 2 very senior officials in the state dept in which I worked. I shouldn’t have heard it, I know, because they were whispering and did not know I was around the corner. Their tone discussing the ‘moment of silence’ we were about to be holding in the office in honor of the victims was a joking tone, and one of the 2 alluded to the other one something along the lines of “well that’s what we’re being fed, so just do it” and they snickered and I wish I had paid more attention, but it made me feel sick.
Prior to that date, the word conspiracy made me laugh, and I brushed it off. But something in their voices that day, caused me to file it away. Then…the reports of conspiracy surrounding SH were popping up. And little by little, the veil was lifted. At [xx-withheld] years old, I suddenly felt disdain for the media, and embarrassment at how much I’d believed. And, I was off. Researching, navigating public records, and sites as I’d been trained to do for work, I gathered much the same data on the homes assessment values that I saw you did as well [referencing this recent article by Dr. Eowyn]. I posted it on [extremely popular social networking site-withheld] under the username [withheld] (if you go to [site withheld]) and search for [username withheld] you may be able to see some posts, or click link below. However, posting what you did, the 12/25/09 $0 values, and my curious new finding that 3 of the victim’s families had won the CT lottery twice, caused me to have my post removed, and my username banned from the site-.my post was public info, in good taste, very factual and not at all breaking any rules of the site.
Within an hour, I got a message- from [withheld, very influential online executive]. He said he personally removed my post and username- which he has never done before- but that I was “making some people very uncomfortable”. I politely asked what crime I committed in others’ discomfort- much of the info in challenging govt and media is disconcerting, adding that I am uncomfortable with what I know as well. He said basically that my information was “very thorough and well researched and showed a lot of validity” and that he was contacted to remove it personally and he did not want me to post anything further as I could cause a lawsuit, essentially.
Well, I stopped posting under that name there, and yet the fire under my ass was lit even more.
I continue to research, the way I’m working now is victimology. (As well as look into the families of the Public Relations wave that occurred Post Event. I’ve steered away from exploring the more common names eg. Gene Rosen) I have noticed the importance of Karen Eifert (Tersak) Dr(e)yer, as well as Lillian and Tom Bittman, AND many of the people who volunteer for Sandy Hook’s Vol Fire Dept.
I’ve also noticed that there are areas of the town with a higher concentration of involved parties — of course there could be many reasons for this, but I’ve noticed a trend where some streets are entirely populated with either victims families, friends who spoke out in the media, and political figures/town employees.
There was either political and media manipulation and orchestration etc. ad nauseum, OR this is an absolutely fascinating case study in synchronicity and some form of anomalous coincidences occurring in a very Jungian collective unconscious.
Statistical anomalies abound and the reasons are either one of those, I think.
What is also interesting is that I do not have a theory- that is to say, I dont know WHAT happened that day, WHO orchestrated it, or HOW. I do not know what I think about if children were hurt, who the families were, what is true/real. I do know that what we are being fed is false, but I do not have a working theory that I am seeking to prove. All I want is the truth.
I think the lottery connection is something correlational– not positive- but it seems to be another corrupt/scandal issue that a few families have some cross over connections with. I will link you to a site that is interesting to research. Other states do not have so many repeat winners. CT is an anomaly, and searching for Newtown and Sandy Hook’s winners will return extremely anomalous results.
I suppose I’m reaching out to say thank you, to share my experience, and toconnect. Attempting to find the truth is lonely, and truly only personally morally rewarding. Following my heart has hit my bank account, and put a slump in my career, and yet I wouldn’t change it because I feel there is real merit here.
If I rocked the boat enough for [withheld identity and accolade mentioned, this is a very important and well-known online executive]– then I (and thus, you) are doing something right.
How goes it for you now? I hope to hear from you. Do you have any advice on how I can make a living in this field? it is a tough road, but I can’t seem to go back to the life I was leading now that I’ve lifted this veil, you know?
I hope we can share/discuss, or you can lend me some ideas/insight. Truth seeking is a thankless lonely road!
Thanks for taking the time to read this.
