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.
