Tag Archives: Adam Lanza’s date of death

The FBI says Sandy Hook school shooting was on Dec. 13, 2012

We are told that on the morning of December 14, 2012, a lone gunman named Adam Lanza entered the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT, shot and killed 20 first-grade students and 6 adults, then shot himself dead in the back of his head.

Adam Lanza’s December 13, 2012 Date-of-Death

One of the many anomalies about Sandy Hook is Adam Lanza’s date of death.

As I had first reported, on January 20, 2013, I went on GenealogyBank.com and confirmed a net rumor that Adam Lanza’s Social Security Death Index (SSDI) was listed as December 13, 2012 — a day before the shooting massacre.

Belows is a screenshot I took of the SSDI record on GenealogyBank.com as proof, in case the site scrubs the page. Note that I underlined in red “Date of Death Thursday, December 13, 2012” and painted the red arrow pointing to the time (2:29 PM) and date (1/20/2013) when I took the screenshot.

The information of Lanza’s strange 12/13/2012 SSDI went viral in the Alternative Media.

13 days later, on February 2, 2013, I discovered that GenealogyBank.com had changed Adam Lanza’s SSDI from December 13 to December 14, 2012. However, another genealogy website, Ancestry.com, was slower on the take and still had Lanza’s SSDI as Dec. 13, 2012.

But it’s not just genealogy websites. John Greenewald, Jr., of the website The Black Vault, obtained a Statement of Death by the Funeral Director for Adam Lanza, which also shows Lanza’s date-of-death as December 13, 2012. Greenewald explains:

As part of the research effort, The Black Vault filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for all documents relating to Adam P. Lanza, his death, and the social security record. Almost two months later, a response was received.

The Social Security Administration sent Greenewald two pages, both statements of death for Lanza by the funeral director.

The first, dated 1/15/13, showed Adam P. Lanza’s death occurred on 12/13/12; the day prior to the shooting. The second document, dated 1/24/13, showed Lanza’s death as 12/14/12, with a handwritten statement at the top, “Amended 1/24/13” and the initials “SMO.”

Below is a screenshot of the original Statement of Death by the Funeral Director, showing Lanza’s date-of-death as 12-13-2012. You can also see the Statement on The Black Vault, here.

Stranger still, the FBI‘s web page on “Active Shooter Resources” also has the Sandy Hook school shooting — and thus, the date-of-death of Adam Lanza and the 26 people he shot at the school — as December 13, 2013.

This is what the page says:

The reports listed below were not authored by the FBI, but links to the reports are being provided for general public information.

Here’s a screenshot I took of the page, showing the date (1/18/2019) and time (6:23 AM) when I took it, in the event FBI “memory-holes” the page. I painted the red arrows and underlined in red “12/13/12”:

Lastly, let us not forget that according to the FBI’s own crime statistics, no one died in Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 13 or December 14, 2012.

The FBI records crime statistics (“offenses known to law enforcement”), including homicides, for every state of the United States. This is what the FBI says about its “Crime in the United States” data:

Crime in the United States features data collected from law enforcement agencies regarding only those offenses known to police….

Since 1996, editions of Crime in the United States have been available on the FBI’s Web site, www.fbi.gov…. The FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program staff are committed to improving their annual publications so that the data they collect can better meet the needs of law enforcement, criminologists, sociologists, legislators, municipal planners, the media, and other students of criminal justice who use the statistics for varied administrative, research, and planning purposes. For more information about how the UCR Program collects data, see About the Uniform Crime Reporting Program….

This is how the FBI describes the methodology of its Uniform Crime Reporting Program:

UCR Programs gather crime information from the law enforcement agencies under their domain and forward the data to the FBI. Forty-seven states in the nation have their own UCR Programs that streamline the collection of UCR data from local law enforcement agencies, ensure consistency and comparability of data, and provide a higher quality of service to the law enforcement community. Establishment of a UCR Program is not limited to state governments. Territorial, tribal, and federal agencies may also institute UCR Programs. Agencies in states without a program, i.e., direct contributors, submit their crime statistics directly to the FBI, which provides continuous guidance and support to those participating agencies.

In other words, the FBI obtains its crime statistics for Newtown, Connecticut, from the city’s law enforcement agency, i.e., the Newtown police.

Table 8 of the FBI’s Crime in the United States 2012 is for the state of Connecticut. As you can see in the screenshot below, which I had taken this morning, January 18, 2019, more than seven years after the Sandy Hook school shooting, Table 8 still shows zero (0) “murder and nonnegligent manslaughter” for the city of Newtown, CT, in the year 2012.

Sandy Hook: Adam Lanza’s strange Dec. 13 date-of-death just won’t go away

In a post on June 5, 2014, C. W. Wade of SandyHookFacts.com announced that the website and that of Lenny Pozner (father of alleged child victim Noah Pozner), LenPoz.com, were releasing the death certificate of Adam Lanza, the alleged mass murderer of 20 first-graders and 6 adults at the Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dec. 14, 2012, in Newtown, Connecticut.

Below is the image of Adam Lanza’s death certificate, dated 1/3/2013. I circled in red the 12/14/2012 date of death and the peculiar skewed signature of Newtown town clerk Debbie Aurelia (why is her signature sprawled out of the box?).

Aurelia had refused Freedom of Information (FOI) requests from media and other sources seeking copies of the death certificates of Lanza and his victims, although death certificates are considered vital public records and historically available for public scrutiny. Aurelia justified her denial on the grounds of preventing identity theft and protecting the privacy of the deceased and their families.

On June 18, 2013, the death certificates were released in a belated response to a Freedom of Information request filed by The New York Post

The Post explains that the State of Connecticut’s Freedom of Information Commission “sided with The Post, maintaining the documents were public record.” In spite of efforts by Aurelia and the state legislature to pass bills to block the release of the death certificates, the bills “never made it to a vote in the Legislature, paving the way for the release of the documents.” (One bill was passed, banning the release of photos and videos of murder victims.)

But neither The Post nor other newspapers that reported on the release published any of the death certificates, not one. Thus far, only two certificates have been published:

  1. That of Noah Pozner, released by his father Lenny, and published by C. W. Wade on SandyHookFacts.com on May 12, 2013.
  2. Adam Lanza’s death certificate, also published on SandyHookFacts.com.

In other words, the public have not seen the remaining 26 death certificates — those of Nancy Lanza and the 19 children and 6 adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

C. W. Wade claimed that since Lanza’s death certificate lists his date of death as December 14, 2012, and was certified by Aurelia, who filed the certificate on January 3, 2013, this refutes the “gimmick” of  “the hoaxer community” (Sandy Hook skeptics) who claimed there is a discrepancy because the Social Security Death Index had listed Lanza as having died on December 13, 2012.

What Wade derisively calls a “gimmick” of “the hoaxer community” is no gimmick, nor is it something contrived by Sandy Hook skeptics. As I had first reported on January 20, 2013, I went on GenealogyBank.com and confirmed a net rumor that Adam Lanza’s Social Security Death Index was listed as December 13, 2012 — a day before the massacre. Here’s a screenshot I took of the SSDI record on GenealogyBank.com, as proof in case the site scrubs the page.

Note that:

  • I took the screenshot at 2:29 pm, 1/20/2013 (see bottom right of image).
  • SSDI says “Confirmation” is “Proven.”

The information of Lanza’s strange 12/13/2012 SSDI went viral in the Alternative Media.

13 days later, on Feb. 2, 2013, I discovered that GenealogyBank.com had changed Adam Lanza’s SSDI to December 14, 2012. (See “SSDI changed Adam Lanza’s date-of-death from Dec. 13 to Dec. 14, 2012 !!!.”)

However, another genealogy website, Ancestry.com, was slower on the take and still had Lanza’s SSDI as Dec. 13, 2012, days after GenealogyBank.com had made the change to Dec. 14. (See “Ancestry.com still has Adam Lanza’s date-of-death as a day before the Sandy Hook massacre”)

Despite Adam Lanza’s 12/14/2012 death date on his alleged death certificate, the matter is not settled.

John Greenewald, Jr., of the website The Black Vault, obtained a Statement of Death by the Funeral Director for Adam Lanza, which shows his date-of-death as Dec. 13, 2012. Greenewald explains:

As part of the research effort, The Black Vault filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for all documents relating to Adam P. Lanza, his death, and the social security record. Almost two months later, a response was received.

The Social Security Administration sent Greenewald two pages, both statements of death for Lanza by the funeral director.

The first, dated 1/15/13, showed Adam P. Lanza’s death occurred on 12/13/12; the day prior to the shooting. The second document, dated 1/24/13, showed Lanza’s death as 12/14/12, with a handwritten statement at the top, “Amended 1/24/13” and the initials “SMO.”

Below are:

  • A letter to Greenewald from Social Security Administration’s FOI officer, Dawn S. Wiggins, dated March 18, 2013 — 3 months before the New York Post received the death certificates of Adam Lanza and his victims.
  • A Statement of Death by Funeral Director for Adam Lanza, dated 1/15/2013, showing Lanza’s date of death as 12/13/2012. The funeral director is listed as Suzanne M. Ouellette of Brookside Chapel and Funeral Home, 116 Main St., Plaistow, NH 03865. (Brookside’s “About Us” web page, however, says its funeral director is Mr.  Francis J. Berube, Jr.  Suzanne Ouellette is identified on LinkedIn as a secretary at Brookside.)
  • An amended Statement of Death by Funeral Director for Adam Lanza, dated 1/24/2013, with Lanza’s date of death changed to 12/14/2012. This document was also signed by Ouellette.

You can also view the documents for yourself here.

From the beginning, nothing about Sandy Hook is transparent or straight-forward. Instead, everything about this alleged massacre has been complicated, convoluted, secretive and shadowy.

So, which document should we believe? —

  1. The original Statement of Death by Funeral Director for Adam Lanza, dated January 15, 2013, which listed Lanza’s date of death as Dec. 13, 2012, or
  2. Adam Lanza’s death certificate, signed by town clerk Debbie Aurelia on January 3, 2013 — with her signature sprawling out of the box (who signs an official document like that?) — which lists Lanza’s date of death as Dec. 14, 2012.

Update:

A reader Auntie Lulu asked a very good question about whether Debbie Aurelia’s home also was acquired for $0, with a sale date of December 25, 2009 when all government offices were closed, like the homes of Sandy Hook victims and those of the town’s three selectmen and non-victims Gene Rosen, the Phelps, and the Wasiks who made themselves readily available for TV interviews. (See “The strange purchase date and price of Sandy Hook homes” and “Sandy Hook: The girl who doesn’t exist and her parents’ $0 home”).

So I found Aurelia’s address and looked it up on Vision Government Solutions, which says her home at 23 Cherry St., Sandy Hook, CT, are co-owned by William Halstead, Sr. & Debbie Aurelia Halstead. There are two sale dates:

  • 12/25/2009: no price listed
  • 10/02/2014: sale price $0

Here’s the screenshot I took of the Vision Government Solutions page. In the lower right corner are the date and time when I took the screenshot. I painted the red boxes and the red arrow.

Sandy Hook families sue Lanza estate, as Newtown demolishes the Lanza home

Americans are notorious for our litigiousness. One of the many curiosities of Sandy Hook 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 are suing, although each victim family has 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:

Lawsuit #1

On Dec. 14, 2014, two years to the day after the alleged school shooting, the families of 9 of Lanza’s 26 victims, as well as a teacher who was wounded, filed a negligence and wrongful death lawsuit against the manufacturer, distributor and seller of the Bushmaster AR-15 rifle that Lanza allegedly had used to kill 20 first-graders and 6 adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School (SHES) in less than 5 minutes — a remarkable feat for a young man who reportedly had Asperger Syndrome, a form of autism that often results in impaired motor skills and coordination.

Note: By the way, have you ever wondered why Adam Lanza, described as a “genius” with computers by media reports and acquaintances, left no online footprints? — no email, no comments on blogs or news sites, no participation in online video games, although he was a member of a high school technology club that held LAN (local area network) parties, in which students would gather at a member’s home, hook up their computers into a small network and play games. The FBI claims that Adam had smashed his computer’s hard drive, but Adam could not have scrubbed every trace of his online footprints as well.

Then, there’s the curious matter of the Social Security Death Index having Adam’s date-of-death as Dec. 13, 2012, one day before he shot himself after killing 27 people. To this day, despite Freedom of Information Act requests, the State of Connecticut has refused to make public his death certificate, although death certificates are a matter of public record.

The lawsuit claims that the Bushmaster AR-15 rifle should not have been made publicly available because it was designed for military use and is unsuited for hunting or home defense, and that its manufacturer, Bushmaster, is clearly aware that the rifle has become the weapon of choice for mass shootings.

For the names of the plaintiffs, see “Sandy Hook families sue Bushmaster gun manufacturer”.

Lawsuit #2

Then, on Jan. 12, 2015, the parents of Jesse Lewis and Noah Pozner, who are also the plaintiffs in Lawsuit #1, filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the town of Newtown and its board of education.

Note: Noah is the same Noah Pozner whose image is among posters of the victims of a school shooting in Peshawar, Pakistan, seen in a BBC news video. Curiously, the BBC seems disinterested in why Noah died a second time, nor is Noah’s dad Lenny Pozner protesting against the inclusion of his son’s image among the Peshawar dead. This is the same Lenny Pozner who is waging a relentless campaign, prevailing on YouTube to take down videos uncovering the Sandy Hook hoax, and harassing bloggers like Timothy Hunter, a college kid, into silence. See also “The curious parents of Sandy Hook child victim Noah Pozner.”

BBC Noah
The lawsuit against Newtown and its board of education claims that security measures at the school allowed the attack to happen — that SHES had security policies and procedures in place that teachers weren’t able to follow on the day of the killings, including:

  • Classroom doors could only be locked from the outside with keys, leaving teachers vulnerable to intruders.
  • The front of the school didn’t have security glass to protect against gunshots.
  • A teacher in one of the two classrooms where students were killed was a substitute, didn’t have a key and didn’t receive training on the security protocols. (Daily Mail)

Lawsuits #3

On March 14, 2015, The Hartford Courant reports that in late January, two separate lawsuits were filed by the families of eight Sandy Hook victims against the estate of Nancy Lanza — Adam’s mother whom he allegedly had killed before he allegedly drove to the school on the morning of Dec. 14, 2012. The lawsuits claim that Nancy carelessly allowed her son access to the Bushmaster AR-15 rifle that he allegedly used in the alleged massacre:

  1. The plaintiffs of one lawsuit consist of the families of three child victims (Benjamin Wheeler, Dylan Hockley, Daniel Barden) and four adult victims (Rachel D’Avino, Mary Scherlach, Victoria Soto and Lauren Rousseau), as well as two teachers who were injured (Natalie Hammond and Deborah Pisani). Their lawsuit was filed by Bridgeport attorney Joshua Koskoff.
  2. The second lawsuit was filed by the family of child victim James Mattioli. The lawyer is Angelo Ziotas of Stamford.

The Lanza home at 36 Yogananda St.

The Lanza home at 36 Yogananda St.


Stamford attorney Samuel Starks, the administrator of Nancy Lanza’s estate, is named as the defendant. Starks estimates the estate is worth about $64,000, but attorneys have said Nancy also had as much as $1 million of insurance on her home that the plaintiffs could seek. Nancy’s estate is worth only $64,000? Her house at 36 Yogananda St., in an affluent section of Newtown, was assessed at $523,000 at one point, according to The Courant.

Curiously, 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

See “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, allegedly for asbestos contamination, with all the construction workers of Consigli Construction sworn to secrecy by signing confidentiality agreements forbidding public discussion of the site, photographs or disclosure of any information about the building.

Note: Newtown had known about Sandy Hook Elementary School’s asbestos and other environmental contaminants for years, which — together with other evidence — points to the school having already been abandoned long before the alleged massacre. See “Was Sandy Hook Elementary School already abandoned before the massacre?

Consigli is the Italian word for advice. Mafia dons or bosses have personal counselors called consiglier.

Needless to say, demolishing the school and the Lanza house is also a neat way to destroy evidence. Defendants in the aforementioned Sandy Hook lawsuits should take note!

Secrecy continues over Sandy Hook massacre

secrecy
Since it happened, the horrible massacre — of 20 children and 6 adults by alleged gunman Adam Lanza at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown Connecticut nearly a year ago on December 14, 2012 — has been shrouded in secrecy. Officials have refused to make public the following:

  • The 911 recording on the morning of December 14, 2012.
  • Autopsy results of the dead — Lanza and his 27 victims, including Lanza’s mother, Nancy, whom he had killed before he drove to the school that morning.
  • Death certificates of Lanza and his victims. Note that death and birth certificates are normally public record. Lanza’s death certificate is especially important because Social Security Death Index (SSDI) had his date of death as December 13, 2012, a day BEFORE the massacre.  SSDI later changed the date to December 14 only after bloggers had discovered the Dec. 13 date of death.
  • Mental health records, if any, of Adam Lanza.
  • Surveillance tape, if any, of the school’s newly-installed security and surveillance system.
  • Even the workers who recently tore down the school were sworn to confidentiality.

And it looks like officials are determined to continue to enshroud the massacre in secrecy.
The Associated Press reports, Nov. 24, 2013, that tomorrow, a prosecutor will release a report on the investigation into the massacre, but there’s one catch — the report will not be a full accounting of the crime. There will be no state police report, which is expected to total thousands of pages. It is not clear when the full report would be released.
Although alleged gunman Lanza allegedly took his own life, which means there will be neither a prosecution nor trial, Danbury State’s Attorney Stephen Sedensky III has gone to court to fight the release of 911 tapes and resisted calls from Governor Dan Malloy to divulge more information sooner.

Stephen SedenskyStephen Sedensky III

In defense, investigators cited the scale of the criminal investigation and consideration for the “feelings” of victims’ families, some of whom have lobbied for tighter restrictions on public information and complained of being harassed by conspiracy theorists.
But Dan Klau, a Hartford attorney who specializes in First Amendment law, said the decision to release a summary report instead of the full evidence file is a reversal of standard practice and one of the most unusual elements of an investigation marked by secrecy.
Klau said, “What I found troubling about the approach of the state’s attorney is that from my perspective, he seems to have forgotten his job is to represent the state of Connecticut. His conduct in many instances has seemed more akin to an attorney in private practice representing Sandy Hook families.”
Sedensky said he could not comment.
So far, investigators have released little more than search warrants, which detailed an arsenal of weapons found inside the Lanza home. The information that authorities have not revealed includes the timeline of the police response to the shooting, any mental health records for Lanza and whether investigators found any clues to a possible motive for the rampage.
The withholding of 911 recordings, which are routinely released in other cases, has been the subject of a legal battle between The Associated Press and Sedensky before the state’s Freedom of Information Commission, which ruled in favor of the AP. A hearing is scheduled Monday in New Britain Superior Court on whether the judge can hear the recordings as he considers an appeal.
One argument raised by Sedensky is that if identities of 911 callers are released, they could be harassed by conspiracy theorists accusing them of being “crisis actors.”
Morgan Rueckert, an attorney representing 22 of the Sandy Hook victims’ families, said some families still receive harassing phone calls from conspiracy theorists, but they are also concerned by the amount of attention that’s been paid to the case and the ease with which records, once released, could be widely published and duplicated on the Internet. “I think it’s appropriate under these circumstances to take a harder look now at what should be released and in what manner,” Rueckert said.
A Connecticut law passed this year in response to the massacre creates exemptions to the freedom-of-information law for the release of photographs, film, video and other images depicting a homicide victim if those records constitute “an unwarranted invasion” on the privacy of the surviving family members.
But why would the release of Adam Lanza’s or Nancy Lanza’s autopsy report and death certificate “invade” the privacy or hurt the “feelings” of the victims’ families?
Have Sedensky and the victims’ families considered this:
By your insistence on non-disclosure, you are feeding precisely the “conspiracy theorists” you’re using to justify your secrecy.
Those who have nothing to hide do not fear the light.

UPDATE (Nov. 25):

The state’s attorney report came out today. It details every step Adam Lanza allegedly took as he “shot his way” into the school building, as well as evidence seized from his possessions, including news about school shootings, a school shooting video game, and materials on pedophilia and rights of pedophiles.
