FBI releases heavily-censored documents on Sandy Hook massacre

Wolfgang Halbig, a former state trooper and current school safety consultant, repeatedly has asked entirely reasonable questions about the alleged massacre of 20 students and 6 women at the Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dec. 14, 2012. In his quest for answers, Halbig has even invoked the Freedom of Information Act. (Go here to see his questions.)

To this day, however, Halbig has received no response, not even one, to his questions from local (Newtown) and state (Connecticut) officials, even when he personally posed the questions to the Newtown Board of Education, after traveling thousands of miles from his home in Florida. (See “Citizens confront Newtown Board of Education about Sandy Hook hoax”)

One of Halbig’s questions is:

Why did the FBI classify the Sandy Hook massacre? This has never been done before. Even the Columbine School massacre was not classified information. To this day, the FBI report on Sandy Hook remains classified information, not releasable to the public.

On April 24, 2014, Dave Altimari reports for The Hartford Courant that, in response to a Courant Freedom of Information (FOI) request, the FBI has released about 175 pages of documents from the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre investigation. The Courant submitted its FOI request in January 2014 after Connecticut state police had released its report.

Alas, the documents “released” by the FBI were “heavily blacked-out,” i.e., censored.

Of the 175 pages released, 64 were completely redacted (blacked-out). Of the remaining 111 pages, “most were heavily redacted.” Below is an example:

As you can see from the page above, it is nearly devoid of information other than that Adam Lanza allegedly was “a troubled kid” and “interested in Japanese techno music.”

Assuming that the other 110 “heavily-redacted” pages are like the page above, this means that the FBI’s release is almost devoid of information.

The Courant says “The names of all witnesses interviewed by federal agents have been removed and there are no references to attempts by federal authorities in Washington, D.C., to recover information from a computer disk that shooter Adam Lanza destroyed.”

That is most interesting because in the days immediately after the alleged massacre, we were told by the news media that Lanza had smashed the hard-drive of his computer. Despite that, the State of Connecticut’s Final Report on Sandy Hook included detailed descriptions of what the FBI presumably had retrieved from Lanza’s computer — about pedophiles, child porn, serial killers, and hatred toward his grandmother. You name the vile evil, he (allegedly) was into it.

Having been trained in scholarship and research, I prefer to see for myself the primary source instead of rely on a secondary account. But The Courant provided no link to the FBI documents.

A blog called Sandy Hook Facts & Research claims that “What [Courant reporter] Altimari fails to point out, or intentionally hides, is that the documents that the FBI released to the Courant were the same public record that had already been released in the final report. There was nothing new here; he could have written that article in December; but the Courant wanted to feed the ignorant.”

But Sandy Hook Facts & Research didn’t give a link to the FBI documents either. So I went on the FBI’s website and searched for the elusive Sandy Hook documents but found nothing. The closest is a page on “Shooting Incidents Reports” that contains a report on the Sandy Hook shooting which, as the FBI admits, was not authored by the FBI, but instead is the Connecticut state police’s report.

The heavily-redacted FBI pages can be viewed here.

Also, day after I published this post, Sandy Hook Facts & Research posted this update:

***May 16, 2014 Update ***

  1. It has been pointed out that I did not include a reference to the documents I discuss.
    The original release of the FBI documents are here:
    Book 4 Doc # 182743 All FBI reports RE FOIA and the link is here:

In other words, one year five months after the alleged massacre, the FBI still has not released its Sandy Hook report.

The FBI is a bureau within the Justice Department of the Obama administration. On August 21, 2010, Obama grandiloquently declared: ““The only people who don’t want to disclose the truth are people with something to hide.”

What about the Sandy Hook massacre is the Obama administration hiding? Only those who lie and deceive fear the light of day.

In the meantime, never forget that according to the FBI’s own statistics, no one was murdered in Newtown, CT in 2012!

Been wondering what has happened with the Sandy Hook case? Want many of the weird questions settled? The legislature of Connecticut has been bypassing normal open procedures to craft a bill behind closed doors that would, if passed, keep basic evidence of the crime forever behind closed doors
From the Hartford Courant, “Bill Drafted In Secret Would Block Release Of Some Newtown Massacre Records”:

Adam Lanza

Adam Lanza


“The staffs of the state’s top prosecutor and the governor’s office have been working in secret with General Assembly leaders on legislation to withhold records related to the police investigation into the Dec. 14 Newtown elementary school massacre — including victims’ photos, tapes of 911 calls, and possibly more. The behind-the-scenes legislative effort came to light Tuesday when The Courant obtained a copy of an email by a top assistant to Chief State’s Attorney Kevin Kane, Timothy J. Sugrue. Sugrue, an assistant state’s attorney, discussed options considered so far, including blocking release of statements ‘made by a minor.’”
You have got to be kidding.
The bereaved Sandy Hook parents are going through hell, I’m sure, and will be doing so for years to come. But they are no more special than the bereaved parents of children who were murdered in Columbine High SchoolAs I wrote back when Michael Moore said he wanted the pictures released,
“If you use Google image search for words like crime scene columbine or Cleboldand Harris, you will find some pretty gruesome pictures. Why is Sandy Hook being treated so differently?”
This entire investigation has been shrouded in secrecy, as evidenced by repeated protests by local editorials (here and here). All this secrecy has been kept simply by the raw will of the police and whoever is overseeing them. What will happen if this becomes enshrined in law? Will it only be the bodies that are kept from view, or will we never get to see any more pictures of the bullet-ridden cars in the parking lot? Or will we be forbidden from seeing photographs of Adam Lanza’s Honda Civic with all four doors open and black sweatshirts strewn on the pavement around it? What about spent shells and the bullet holes in the interior walls? The official story makes Adam Lanza a lone gunman who managed to shoot 155 bullets in under five minutes and hit multiple targets multiple times.
Other than some professional local Connecticut Journalists, the major media has investigated nothing at all related to Sandy Hook, but rather considered it an opportunity to play Oprah Winfrey and to lobby for gun control. Many (Most? All?) of the Sandy Hook parents whose delicate privacy the Connecticut legislators are so concerned about have been aggressively lobbying in the news and in legislatures using their pain as a license to attack the second amendment. Showing the damage would further their cause, just likeMichael Moore said.
I’ve never in my life heard of the side of law and order wanting to suppress evidence. It is always the defense who wants the pictures concealed because of the fear that the jury will become enflamed with a sense of justice against the perpetrator.
What the Connecticut legislature is trying to do just seems backwards. The fact that they have tried to hide what they are doing makes it seem even more sinister.
