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!

Sandy Hook families sue Bushmaster gun manufacturer

Sandy Hoax
One of the many curiosities about the Sandy Hook massacre of Dec. 14, 2012 — in which alleged lone gunman, 20-year-old Adam Lanza, allegedly killed 20 kids and 6 adults in the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut — is the absence of lawsuits by the victims’ families. (See my post of March 29, 2014, “Why are there no Sandy Hook lawsuits?”)
That has to be a first in notoriously litigious America, where in 1994, 79-year-old Stella Liebeck who spilled a cup of hot McDonald’s coffee on herself sued McDonald’s restaurant and was awarded $2.86 million by a New Mexico civil jury. (The trial judge later reduced the final verdict to $640,000, and the parties settled for a confidential amount before an appeal was decided.)
On Dec. 14, 2014, two years to the day after the alleged massacre, the strange absence of Sandy Hook lawsuits came to an end when, as the AP reports, the families of 9 of the 26 people killed, as well as a teacher who was wounded, filed a lawsuit against the manufacturer, distributor and seller of the Bushmaster AR-15 rifle that Lanza allegedly used in the shooting.
The negligence and wrongful death lawsuit, filed in Bridgeport Superior Court, asserts 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. As attorney Josh Koskoff put it in a release, “The AR-15 was specifically engineered for the United States military to meet the needs of changing warfare. In fact, one of the Army’s specifications for the AR-15 was that it has the capability to penetrate a steel helmet.”
The lawsuit claims that Bushmaster is clearly aware that the AR-15 has become the weapon of choice for mass shootings: “Time and again, mentally unstable individuals and criminals have acquired an AR-15 with ease, and they have unleashed the rifle’s lethal power on our streets, our malls, our places of worship, and our schools.”
As one of the plaintiffs, Bill Sherlach, put it, the gun industry needs to be held to “standard business practices” when it comes to assuming the risk for producing, making and selling a product. “These [gun] companies assume no responsibility for marketing and selling a product to the general population who are not trained to use it nor even understand the power of it.”
The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages for the 10 plaintiffs, 9 of whom are the families of:

  1. Daniel Barden, child
  2. Rachel D’Avino, special ed teacher
  3. Dylan Hockley, child
  4. Jesse Lewis, child
  5. Noah Pozner, child
  6. Lauren Rousseau, teacher
  7. Mary Sherlach, school psychologist
  8. Vicki Soto, teacher
  9. Benjamin Wheeler, child
  10. The 10th plaintiff is Natalie Hammond, a teacher who was injured in the shooting.

The lawsuit names three defendants:

  1. Bushmaster Firearms, the manufacturer of the rifle.
  2. Camfour, a firearm distributor.
  3. Riverview Gun Sales in East Windsor where Adam’s mother, Nancy Lanza, allegedly had purchased the Bushmaster rifle in 2010.

Bushmaster Firearms International
There have been two notable lawsuits against gun manufacturers:

  • In 2002, a federal judge in California ruled that Bushmaster and other gun manufacturers were not responsible for a 1999 shooting spree that killed a postal worker and injured five people at a Jewish community center in Los Angeles. The judge said a lawsuit by the victims’ families did not show a link between the manufacturers and the shooting rampage.
  • In 2004, in a lawsuit over the .223-caliber Bushmaster rifle used in the Washington, D.C.-area sniper shootings that killed 10 people in 2002, Bushmaster and a Washington state gun dealer agreed to pay $550,000 and $2.5 million, respectively, to two survivors and six families. It was the first time a gun manufacturer had agreed to pay damages to settle claims of negligent distribution of weapons.

In 2005, Congress and President George W. Bush approved a federal law, the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, which shields gun makers from lawsuits over criminal use of their products, with 6 exemptions. One of the exemptions is the “negligent entrustment” exemption, defined in the law as “the supplying of a qualified product by a seller for use by another person when the seller knows, or reasonably should know, the person to whom the product is supplied is likely to, and does, use the product in a manner involving unreasonable risk of physical injury to the person or others.”
Dan Altimari reports for the Hartford Courant, Dec. 15, 2014, that the Sandy Hook lawsuit will test the 2005 federal law designed to protect gun companies by using the negligent entrustment exemption, normally applied to car accident cases. In a negligent entrustment case, a party (Bushmaster) can be held liable for entrusting a product, in this case the Bushmaster rifle, to another party (Nancy and Adam Lanza) who then causes harm to a third party (Lanza’s victims).
Albany Law School Professor Timothy Lytton, who has written a book about the history of lawsuits against gun companies, said an example of negligent entrustment would be the sale of a weapon by a gun retailer to a suicidal person. A negligent entrustment lawsuit would claim the retailer should have known not to sell that person a gun. Lytton said, “The court needs to decide whether they want to extend negligent entrustment from a retailer selling a gun to someone standing right in front of them to the theory that the manufacturer of the weapon is also responsible when the weapon they made is then sold by another party to a third person.”
Dennis Henigan, former vice president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, said that extending negligent entrustment to the gun manufacturer Bushmaster Firearms is unprecedented, having never before been brought before a court. It is therefore difficult to predict what will happen, although “Most state judges will want to find a way to allow these victims their day in court.”
There are rumors on the Internet that financier George Soros, a gun control advocate, had bought Bushmaster. If this is true, we would have good reason to question the Sandy Hook lawsuit and if the lawsuit would ever go to trial.
But the rumor is not true. (See my post of Nov. 1, 2011, “Is Soros Buying Up Guns in the U.S.?“)
Instead, Bushmaster and other leading gun makers had been acquired by a company called the Freedom Group that the New York Times calls “the most powerful and mysterious force in the American commercial gun industry today.” Behind Freedom Group is the private equity firm Cerberus Capital Management (CCM), which is named after Cerberus, the 3-headed dog that guarded the gates of Hades or Hell in Greek mythology. Steve Feinberg, CCM’s chief executive, co-founded CCM in 1992 with William L. Richter, who currently serves as a senior managing director.
From The New York Times, Nov. 26, 2011:

In recent years, many top-selling brands — including the 195-year-old Remington Arms, as well as Bushmaster Firearms and DPMS, leading makers of military-style semiautomatics — have quietly passed into the hands of a single private company. It is called the Freedom Group — and it is the most powerful and mysterious force in the American commercial gun industry today. […]
Even within gun circles, the Freedom Group is something of an enigma. Its rise has been so swift that it has become the subject of wild speculation and grassy-knoll conspiracy theories. In the realm of consumer rifles and shotguns — long guns, in the trade — it is unrivaled in its size and reach. […]
Behind this giant is Cerberus Capital Management, the private investment company that […] has been buying big names in guns and ammo. […] “We believe our scale and product breadth are unmatched within the industry,” the Freedom Group said in a filing last year with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
[…] Mark Eliason, the vice president for sales and marketing at Windham Weaponry, a new competitor of Bushmaster that was established by Bushmaster’s founder […] estimates that roughly 20 percent of the long guns for sale here are made by Freedom Group companies. […] About a third of it [ammunition] comes from the Freedom Group […].
Some gun enthusiasts have claimed that the power behind the company is actually George Soros, the hedge-fund billionaire and liberal activist. Mr. Soros, these people have warned, is buying American gun companies so he can dismantle the industry, Second Amendment be damned.
The chatter grew so loud that the National Rifle Association issued a statement in October denying the rumors. “N.R.A. has had contact with officials from Cerberus and Freedom Group for some time,” the N.R.A. assured its members. “The owners and investors involved are strong supporters of the Second Amendment and are avid hunters and shooters.”
Mr. Soros isn’t behind the Freedom Group, but, ultimately, another financier is: Stephen A. Feinberg, the chief executive of Cerberus {…] a Princeton graduate who [joined the Reserve Officer Training Corps while at Princeton].
Today, Mr. Feinberg presides over a private empire that rivals some of the mightiest public companies in the land. Cerberus manages more than $20 billion in capital. Together, the companies it owns generate annual revenue of about $40 billion — more than either Amazon or Coca-Cola last year.
Why Cerberus went after gun companies isn’t clear.
[…] Cerberus brings some connections to the table. The longtime chairman of its global investments group is Dan Quayle, the former vice president. The Freedom Group, meantime, has added two retired generals to its board. One is George A. Joulwan, who retired from the Army after serving as Supreme Allied Commander of Europe. The other is Michael W. Hagee, formerly commandant of the Marine Corps.

UPDATE (Oct. 15, 2016)

Yesterday, Oct. 14, 2016, Connecticut Superior Court Judge Barbara Bellis struck down the lawsuit that families of alleged victims had brought against Remington Arms, the parent company of Bushmaster, the brand of AR-15 that Adam Lanza allegedly used in the alleged massacre of 20 children and 6 adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
Bellis cited the 2005 Lawful Protection of Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which protects gun manufacturers from being sued in instances where the gun in question was legally made and sold — which was the case with the AR-15 allegedly used by Lanza. (Source: Breitbart)

No one died in Sandy Hook: Testimony from Social Security Death Master File

When a person in the United States dies, his/her death is recorded by the federal government.
The Social Security Death Index (SSDI) is a database of death records created from the Social Security Administration’s Death Master File (DMF). Most persons in the U.S. who had died since 1936, had had a Social Security number, and whose death was reported to the Social Security Administration are listed in the SSDI.
Unlike the Death Master File, the SSDI is available free to the public on several genealogy websites, such as Genealogy Bank. The “state of issue” refers to the state that had issued the individual’s Social Security number.
On January 20, 2013, I undertook a search on Genealogy Bank for the SSDI of Adam Lanza — the alleged mass murderer of his mother, Nancy Lanza, and 20 children and 6 adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, on December 14, 2012.
To my astonishment, Genealogy Bank had Lanza’s SSDI as December 13, 2012 — a day BEFORE the alleged mass shooting. (See “SSDI says Adam Lanza died a day before Sandy Hook massacre“)
Here’s a screenshot I took of Adam Lanza’s SSDI record on the website GenealogyBank.com. The date (1/20/2013) and time (2:29PM) when I took the screenshot can be seen in the lower right corner of the image below.

Click image to enlarge

Adam Lanza died 12-13-2012
After the discovery of Lanza’s 12/13/2012 SSDI went viral, on or around February 2, 2013, Genealogy Bank changed Lanza’s SSDI to 12/14/2012, the day of the alleged massacre. (See “SSDI changed Adam Lanza’s date-of-death from Dec. 13 to Dec. 14, 2012 !!!”)
Another genealogy website, Ancestry.com, was slower on the uptake. Three days after Genealogy Bank had changed its SSDI for Lanza to 12/14/2012, Ancestry.com still listed Lanza’s SSDI as 12/13/2012. (See “Ancestry.com still has Adam Lanza’s date-of-death as a day before the Sandy Hook massacre”)
Lanza’s curious SSDI aside, I was able to find on Genealogy Bank the SSDI (of 12/14/2012) of all of Lanza’s victims, except one — that of Ana Marquez-Greene, age 6, whose father is jazz musician Jimmy Greene. In my search for Ana, I had used every variation of her name: Ana Marquez, Ana Marquez-Greene, Ana Greene, to no avail. I hypothesized that the lack of a SSDI for Ana Marquez-Greene may be because her parents had not yet obtained a Social Security card/number for her. (See “Dec. 14 was date of death for every Sandy Hook massacre victim, except Adam Lanza“)

But wait!

Remember what I’d written at the beginning of this post — that the Social Security Death Index (SSDI) is a database of death records created from the federal government Social Security Administration’s Death Master File?
What if I were to tell you that the Death Master File does NOT contain the SSDIs for any of Adam Lanza’s victims?

In other words, according to the United States Social Security Administration’s Death Master File, nobody died at Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14, 2012.

That’s exactly what blogger LivingonPlanetZ of Chemtrails: The Exotic Weapon reported on Feb. 22, 2014.
LivingonPlanetZ refers us to what he calls an “originating website” — a document published on archives.org (date unknown), titled “Sandy Hook – NO DEATHS, NO VICTIMS; According to SSDI Official Master File.” (You can also read the document in PDF here or here.)
The anonymous person who uploaded the 107-page document to archives.org had accessed the Social Security Administration’s Death Master File, updated through January 1, 2014, and searched for Adam Lanza’s victims — in vain.
The document says:

You are invited to search all of these records for the putative ‘victims’ of the Sandy Hook massacre. The children should all be 6 to 7 years old (“born” 2005-2006), and should have “died” in 2012. The adult “victims” appear in the appendix. (Each entry is followed by a 6-7 digit serial entry number, which demonstrates the continuity of the alphabetical listing – in other words, that they are presented here unaltered.)

I did just that and can verify the claim that none of Adam Lanza’s victims is in Social Security’s Death Master File. But before I present my findings, here are the Sandy Hook victims (name, birth date, gender, age at death), according to news accounts:
CHILDREN

  1. Charlotte Bacon, 2/22/06, female (age 6)

  5. Mary Sherlach, 02/11/56, female (age 56)
  6. Victoria Soto, 11/04/85, female (age 27)

Here are the search results for each of the above names in the Social Security Death Master File (DMF). In the list below, the names of alleged child victims are colored pink; those of adults are colored green:

  1. Charlotte Bacon: DMF has 36 individuals named Charlotte Bacon, none of whom is Sandy Hook’s Charlotte Bacon.
  2. Daniel Barden: DMF has 6 individuals named Daniel or Danny Barden, none of whom is Sandy Hook’s Daniel Barden.

LivingonPlanetZ posted about the document “Sandy Hook – NO DEATHS, NO VICTIMS; According to SSDI Official Master File” on February 22, 2014.
It is noteworthy that a month later, Social Security Administration changed its policy on the public’s access to its Death Master File. On the website of the Social Security Administration, it says beginning March 27, 2014, the public can have only “limited access” to its Death Master File. To gain access to the DMF, we the American people must now jump through several hoops:

  • One must be “certified” (via having one’s application approved) to be granted “limited access”.
  • Only certain people are eligible to be “certified”. One must have a “legitimate” fraud prevention interest, or have a “legitimate” business purpose pursuant to a law, governmental rule, regulation, or fiduciary duty in order to be certified under the program. (The critical word “legitimate” is undefined, which means Social Security Administration’s bureaucrats decide what “legitimate” means.)
  • Those who are “certified” for access to the Death Master File must pay a hefty annual per-person subscription fee of $995.

Then there’s this cover-their-posterior all-purpose qualifier by Social Security Administration:

This [Death Master] file includes the following information on each decedent, if the data are available to the SSA: social security number, name, date of birth, date of death. The SSA does not have a death record for all persons; therefore, SSA does not guarantee the veracity of the file. Thus, the absence of a particular person is not proof this person is alive.

But wait!

We don’t just have to depend on Social Security’s Death Master File data to know that no one died at Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14, 2012.
How do we know that?
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) tells us so!
Adan Salazar reports for Infowars, Sept. 24, 2014, that recently released FBI crime statistics show that no murders occurred in Newtown, Connecticut, in 2012, despite reports that 20 schoolchildren, 6 faculty members, and Nancy Lanza were killed or, in the case of Adam Lanza, committed suicide on December 14, 2012.

Click image to enlarge

FBI 2012 crime stats1
In contrast to the Connecticut report, the 2012 FBI crime report for the state of Colorado shows that 29 murders occurred in the town of Aurora that year, a figure that takes into account the 12 people who died in the Century Theater during the midnight premiere of The Dark Knight Rises on July 20, 2012.
FBI crime stats2
To conclude, no one was killed on December 14, 2012 at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. More perverse still, according to the Social Security Administration’s records, none of the alleged Sandy Hook victims ever lived!
As the author of “Sandy Hook – NO DEATHS, NO VICTIMS; According to SSDI Official Master File” puts it:

ALL of the identities of the “children victims” of the supposed Sandy Hook massacre, are purely fictitious identities, with no record of either birth or death. As to the adult “victims”, the only one with an identity possibly verifiable from the intact SSD Master File, is Victoria G. Soto. The other identities may or may not have been assumed by real people at some time; but the identities themselves are nevertheless fictitious. Secondary copies of the Master File, or perhaps earlier versions, appear to have been altered or “corrected”, to include the fake identities. Such altered copies appear to be in use by popular genealogy search websites, though inconsistently.

Sandy Hook Massacre: 14 never-before-seen photos

Adam & Nancy Lanza

Adam & Nancy Lanza

Yesterday, State’s Attorney Stephen Sedensky released the long-awaited but not-a-full report* of the State of Connecticut’s investigation into the Sandy Hook massacre of December 14, 2012, wherein alleged shooter Adam Lanza killed 20 children and 6 adults in Sandy Hook Elementary School, after first shooting his 52-year-old mother Nancy 4 times in her face in their home at 36 Yogananda Street, Newtown, Connecticut .

* See “Secrecy continues over Sandy Hook massacre

Nancy Lanza had just returned from a 3-day “mini break” to Bretton Woods in New Hampshire, wherein she stayed at the Omni Mount Washington Resort, checking out at 12:27 pm on December 13. Nancy had left Adam alone in their $1.4 million mansion in Newtown, CT. Reportedly, these “mini-breaks” were something Nancy often took.

The Lanza family home at 36 Yogananda St., with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms on 2.19 acres. Curiously, the real estate website Zillow says the house is not for sale. Assuming Adam’s brother, Ryan, inherited Nancy’s estate (since she is divorced), why would Ryan hang onto the house?
The state attorney’s report details every step 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. The report describes Lanza as having Asperger Syndrome: a type of autism characterized by restricted and repetitive patterns of behavior and interests; significant difficulties in social interaction and nonverbal communication; and reduced empathy. But the report offers no motive for his alleged killings.

Newtown clerk refuses to issue Sandy Hook victims' death certificates

secrecy

Something really stinks about the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre.

On February 5, 2013, I tried to order alleged mass murderer Adam Lanza’s death certificate from Vitalcheck, but got this message: “Sorry, this Death Certificate is unavailable.”

Now I know why.

DebAureliaNewtown’s town clerk Debbie Aurelia

John Voket reports for The Newtown Bee that Newtown’s town clerk Debbie Aurelia is refusing Freedom of Information requests from media and other sources seeking copies of all death records, including burial locations, of the alleged victims of the shooting massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14, 2012, as well as the death records of alleged mass murderer Adam Lanza and his mother, Nancy Lanza.

The New York Post, the Connecticut Post, the Associated Press, the Hartford Courant, and other media have put forth requests for official death certificates of Sandy Hook victims.

Death certificates are part of vital public records, which also include birth and marriage certificates. They are public domain documents that serve as a mechanism for upholding the integrity of information in which there is a public interest, as it relates to voting, citizenship, and receiving public benefits. Abuses of voting processes involving voters who, unbeknownst to the public, are actually dead, are legendary. Death certificates typically contain little information about manner of death beyond categories such as “natural cause,” “homicide,” “accident,” “suicide,” or “other.” News organizations utilize such records in crime reporting as a standard part of normal, often tedious, fact-checking procedures. Death certificates also contain the sworn statement of the medical examiner.

What Aurelia is doing is contrary to the Connecticut Freedom of Information Act (CFOIA) as codified in Chapter 14 of Connecticut General Status. [Click here for the CFOIA.]

Section 1 (5) of CFOIA defines “public records or files” as “any recorded data or information relating to the conduct of the public’s business prepared, owned, used, received or retained by a public agency, or to which a public agency is entitled to receive a copy by law or contract under section 1-218, whether such data or information be handwritten, typed, tape-recorded, printed, photostated, photographed or recorded by any other method.”
Sec. 1-210 of the CFOIA specifies that “Except as otherwise provided by any federal law or state statute, all records maintained or kept on file by any public agency, whether or not such records are required by any law or by any rule or regulation, shall be public records and every person shall have the right to (1) inspect such records promptly during regular office or business hours, (2) copy such records in accordance with subsection (g) of section 1-212, or (3) receive a copy of such records in accordance with section 1-212. Any agency rule or regulation, or part thereof, that conflicts with the provisions of this subsection or diminishes or curtails in any way the rights granted by this subsection shall be void.”
More than refusing to comply with Freedom of Information requests for the death records of Sandy Hook victims, Aurelia is working with two Republican state legislators, Representatives Dan Carter and Mitch Bolinsky, and the leadership of the state association of town clerks to craft a bill that would provide the press and public with limited directory information from death and marriage records, but would withhold the actual death and marriage certificates from review except by legally entitled immediate family members or their representatives.
As reported by Christopher Keating of the Hartford Courant, Bolinsky’s one-paragraph bill, HB 5733 – An Act Concerning Access to a Child’s Death Certificate, states that the copy of the public record could be restricted “when the disclosure of the death certificate is likely to cause undue hardship for the family of the child.’’
But Jim Smith, a veteran journalist who serves as president of the Connecticut Council on Freedom of Information, said his group will fight against the bill in its continuing advocacy for open government. The certificate, he said, is a straightforward, factual document that lacks the details of an autopsy report: “There isn’t anything in a death certificate that is going to hurt the deceased. It’s not like an autopsy report. It’s been public for centuries. It’s not going to invade anyone’s privacy. We understand people, especially in Newtown, are aggrieved, but it shouldn’t lead to shutting off information in a democracy. There’s no real reason to do it. If a kid dies, we ought to know why. We shouldn’t be hiding why kids die.’’

HB 5733 is sponsored by Rep. Mitch Bolinsky and co-sponsored by Reps. Brenda L. Kupchick and DebraLee Hovey, and Sen. John McKinneyall Republicans. Two days ago, on Feb. 23, 2013, the bill was referred to Connecticut state legislature’s Joint Committee on Public Health.

SSDI changed Adam Lanza's date-of-death from Dec. 13 to Dec. 14, 2012 !!!

The Social Security Death Index (SSDI) is a database of death records created from the federal government Social Security Administration’s Death Master File Extract. SSDI data are available free-of-charge on genealogy websites, including GenealogyBank.com.
On January 20, 2013, I did a post on the curious discovery that, according to SSDI, alleged Sandy Hook mass murderer Adam Lanza had died on December 13, 2012 — one day BEFORE the massacre of 20 children and 6 adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. This was the information was on the website GenealogyBank.com:

Adam P. Lanza: Social Security Death Index (SSDI) Death Record
Name: Adam P. Lanza
State of Issue: New Hampshire
Date of Birth: Wednesday April 22, 1992
Date of Death: Thursday December 13, 2012
Est. Age at Death: 20 years, 7 months, 21 days
Confirmation: Proven

I took a screenshot of that GenealogyBank.com page on Adam Lanza, as a prophylactic in case the site scrubs or alters the page. As you can see (bottom right of the image below), I took the screenshot at 2:29 pm on 1/20/2013:

As recent as two days ago, on January 31, 2013, I again went on that genealogybank.com page and saw that the SSDI date-of-death for Adam Lanza was still listed as December 13, 2012.
I just checked the site again.
You’re not gonna believe this –

The date of death is now changed to December 14, 2012!!!!!!!!!

Here’s a screenshot I just took, where you can see that it was taken at 1:32 PM on 2/2/2013:

Adam Lanza's altered SSDI

It is also noteworthy that of the 28 people (20 children, 8 adults) who allegedly were killed on December 14, 2012, in Newtown, Connecticut, SSDI had the date-of-death for 26 people (Nancy Lanza; 19 children and 6 adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School) as December 14, 2012. (There is no SSDI for one child victim, Ana Marquez-Greene.) Of the 28 people killed that day, only Adam Lanza’s date-of-death was December 13, 2012that is, until SSDI recently changed it to December 14, 2012.

In other words, according to the original SSDI entry, the man who we are told was the lone gunman who perpetrated the Sandy Hook massacre, had died the day before he killed his 27 victims!

Will wonders ever cease…. [Snark]

Update (Feb. 5, 2013):

As of today, another genealogy website, Ancestry.com, says SSDI has Adam Lanza’s date-of-death as Dec. 13, 2012. See “Ancestry.com still has Adam Lanza’s date-of-death as a day before the Sandy Hook massacre.”

Dec. 14 was date of death for every Sandy Hook massacre victim, except Adam Lanza

On January 20, I did a post on the startling information that Social Security Death Index, as conveyed by the website GenealogyBank, says alleged Sandy Hook mass murderer Adam Lanza had died on December 13, 2012 — a day before the massacre.
The Social Security Death Index (SSDI) is a database of death records created from the federal government Social Security Administration’s Death Master File Extract. Most persons who have died since 1936 who had a Social Security number and whose death has been reported to the Social Security Administration are listed in the SSDI. Unlike the Death Master File, the SSDI is available free from several genealogy websites. The “state of issue” refers to the state that had issued the Social Security number.
The SSDI is not error-free. WSMV.com reports in 2012 that Social Security mistakenly declares about 1,000 people dead every month who aren’t, according to one government report.
After my post on Adam Lanza, a reader sent FOTM an email asking if SSDI has death records on the 20 children and 6 adults whom Lanza allegedly had killed in Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14. So we looked into this. Here’s our report.
According to genealogybank.com, SSDI has death records on all but one of the 26 Sandy Hook victims:

  1. Charlotte Bacon: age 6; born Feb. 22, 2006; died Dec. 14, 2012; State of issue (SOI) New Jersey.
  2. Daniel G. Barden: age 7; b. Sept. 27, 2005; d. Dec. 14, 2012; SOI New York.
  3. Rachel D’Avino: At first we couldn’t a SSDI for her, but when we conducted a re-search for “Rachel Davino” (instead of “D’Avino”) we did find her SSDI: age 29; b. July 17, 1983; d. Dec. 14, 2012; SOI Connecticut.
  4. Olivia R. Engel: age 6; b. July 18, 2006; d. Dec. 14, 2012; SOI Connecticut.
  5. Josephine G. Gay: age 7; b. Dec. 11, 2005; d. Dec. 14, 2012; SOI Maryland.
  6. Dylan C. Hockley: age 6; b. Mar. 8, 2006; d. Dec. 14, 2012; SOI Maryland.
  7. Dawn Lafferty Hochsprung: age 47; b. June 28, 1965; d. Dec. 14, 2012; SOI Connecticut.
  8. Madeleine F. Hsu: age 6; b. July 10, 2006; d. Dec. 14, 2012; SOI Connecticut.
  9. Catherine V. Hubbard: age 6; b. June 8, 2006; d. Dec. 14, 2012; SOI Connecticut.
  10. Chase M. Kowalski: age 7; b. Oct. 31, 2005; d. Dec. 14, 2012; SOI Connecticut.
  11. Jesse M. Lewis: age 6; b. June 30, 2006; d. Dec. 14, 2012; SOI Connecticut.
  12. James Mattioli: age 6; b. Mar. 22, 2006; d. Dec. 14, 2012; SOI Connecticut.
  13. Grace A. McDonnell: age 7; b. Nov. 4, 2005; d. Dec. 14, 2012; SOI Connecticut.
  14. Anne Marie Murphy: age 52; b. July 25, 1960; d. Dec. 14, 2012; SOI New York.
  15. Emilie A. Parker: age 6; b. May 12, 2006; d. Dec. 14, 2012; SOI Utah.
  16. Jack A. Pinto: age 6; b. May 6, 2006; d. Dec. 14, 2012; SOI Connecticut.
  17. Noah S. Pozner: age 6; b. Nov. 20, 2006; d. Dec. 14, 2012; SOI Connecticut.
  18. Caroline P. Previdi: age 6; b. Sept. 7, 2006; d. Dec. 14, 2012; SOI Connecticut.
  19. Jessica A. Rekos: age 6, b. May 10, 2006; d. Dec. 14, 2012; SOI Connecticut.
  20. Avielle R. Richman: age 6; b. Oct. 17, 2006; d. Dec. 14, 2012; SOI California.
  21. Lauren G. Rousseau: age 30; b. June 8, 1982; d. Dec. 14, 2012; SOI Connecticut.
  22. Mary J. Sherlach: age 56; b. Feb. 11, 1956; d. Dec. 14, 2012; SOI New York.
  23. Victoria L. Soto: age 27; b. Nov. 4, 1985; d. Dec. 14, 2012; SOI Connecticut.
  24. Benjamin A. Wheeler: age 6; b. Sept. 12, 2006; d. Dec. 14, 2012; SOI New York.
  25. Allison Wyatt: age 6; b. July 3, 2006; d. Dec. 14, 2012; SOI Connecticut.

There is no SSDI for one Sandy Hook victim: Ana Marquez-Greene, age 6. Ana was mixed-race; her father is jazz musician Jimmy Greene.
So we searched for her SSDI again, using two variations of her last name:

  • An SSDI was found for “Ana Delia Greene”: b. 1968; d. 2010; SOI Arizona.
  • A search for SSDI for “Ana Marquez” found 36 Ana Marquezes, none of whom was the age of Ana Marquez-Greene of Sandy Hook. 

The lack of a SSDI for Ana Marquez-Greene may be because her parents had not yet obtained a Social Security card/number for her.

Ana Marquez-GreeneL to r: Ana’s brother, Jimmy Greene, Nelba Marquez-Greene; Ana Marquez-Greene

Note that the Date of Death for all of the above 25 Sandy Hook victims, as well as Adam Lanza’s mother, Nancy Lanza, is December 14, 2012.
Of the 28 people (20 children, 8 adults) who allegedly were killed on December 14, 2012, in Newtown, Connecticut, only Adam Lanza’s date of death is December 13, 2012 — one day before the massacre.
In other words, according to SSDI, the man who (we are told) killed the other 27 had died the day before!
Here’s the screenshot I took on January 20, 2013, of the SSDI for Adam Lanza on genealogybank.com, showing his date-of-death as December 13, 2012:

As recent as two days ago, on January 31, 2013, genealogybank.com still had the SSDI date of death for Adam Lanza as December 13, 2012.
I just checked the site again. You’re not gonna believe this – The date of death is now changed to December 14, 2012!!!!!!!!!
Here’s a screenshot I took, where you can see that I’d taken the screenshot at 1:32 PM, 2/2/2013:

Adam Lanza's altered SSDI

We also came across this piece of oddity: The media used a photo of a different girl, Lily Gaubert, for Sandy Hook victim Allison Wyatt.

Lily GaubertLily Gaubert

On her Facebook page, Cathy Gaubert says someone lifted her very much alive daughter Lily’s pic from her Flickr page and used it as Sandy Hook victim Allison Wyatt’s.

Only when Cathy Gaubert found out that her daughter’s photo was identified to be that of the dead Allison Wyatt that the media replaced the photo of Lily Gaubert with a photo of Allison Wyatt.

Update (Feb. 5, 2013):

I ran all the victims on another genealogy website, Ancestry.com, and can confirm that the date-of-death for all of them, except Adam Lanza, is December 14, 2012. Unlike genealogybank.com that’s changed Adam’s date-of-death to Dec. 14, 2012, Ancestry.com still has the date as Dec. 13, 2012, according to SSDI.
I also found an obituary on Ancestry.com for Ana Grace Marquez Greene, died Dec. 14 2012. But I cannot find an SSDI for the girl on Ancestry.com, using variations on her last name of “Greene,” “Marquez-Greene”, or “Marquez.”

SSDI says Adam Lanza died a day before Sandy Hook massacre

Adam (l); Nancy (r)

Adam (l) and Nancy (r) Lanza


More “make crazy” information on the Sandy Hook massacre.
On December 14, 2012, beginning at around 9:30 a.m., a lone gunman, 20-year-old Adam Lanza, blasted past the security system of Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, and killed 20 first-grade students and 6 adults.
Before his killing spree in the school, Lanza had first killed his 52-year-old mother by shooting her four times in the face as she was lying in bed in the family mansion on Yogonanda Street.
When Adam heard police arriving at the school, he turned a gun on himself and committed suicide.
Or so we’re told.
A sharp-eyed citizen journalist, “Space Command” on Prison Planet Forum, discovered something amazing: a Social Security Death Index (SSDI) for an Adam Lanza, born April 22, 1992, who died at age 20 on December 13, 2012! That’s a day BEFORE the Sandy Hook massacre.

Adam P. Lanza: Social Security Death Index (SSDI) Death Record
Name: Adam P. Lanza
State of Issue: New Hampshire
Date of Birth: Wednesday April 22, 1992
Date of Death: Thursday December 13, 2012
Est. Age at Death: 20 years, 7 months, 21 days
Confirmation: Proven

Here’s a screenshot I just took of the SSDI record on the website GenealogyBank.com, as a prophylactic 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 State of Issue is New Hampshire.

GenealogyBank.com also has the SSDI record on Nancy Lanza, who died on the day of the massacre, December 14, 2012:

Nancy Lanza: Social Security Death Index (SSDI) Death Record
Name: Nancy Lanza
State of Issue: New Hampshire
Date of Birth: Tuesday September 06, 1960
Date of Death: Friday December 14, 2012
Est. Age at Death: 52 years, 3 months, 8 days
Confirmation: Proven

Here’s a screenshot I took of the GenealogyBank.com page:

Nancy Lanza died 12-14-2012

The “State of Issue” being New Hampshire jogged my memory. I had seen New Hampshire in reference to Nancy Lanza before.
Indeed, I had.
On December 19, 2012, Rachel Quigley reports for the Daily Mail:
Sandy Hook gunman Adam Lanza was left home alone with an arsenal of weapons in the $1.4million mansion he lived in with his mother for three days while she went on vacation, it emerged today. […] According to Headline News, Nancy Lanza had left Adam alone while she went on a mini-break to Bretton Woods in New Hampshire – something she often did. […] The 52-year-old checked into the Omni Mount Washington Resort at 12:10pm on Tuesday, December 11, and checked out at 12:27pm on Thursday, [December 13].

For our other posts on the massacre, see our “Sandy Hook Massacre” page.

Update:

SSDI’s “state of issue” refers to the state that originally issued the Social Security no. to the individual, not the state in which the death had occurred, although of course it can be the same state for some people.
According to this article in the Wall St. Journal, referring to Nancy’s marriage to Peter Lanza: “The troubles began shortly after Peter and Nancy Lanza moved in 1998 with their young sons to Newtown, Conn., from the New Hampshire and northern Massachusetts countryside where they both grew up.”
That suggests New Hampshire was the state that had issued Social Security numbers to both Nancy and her son, Adam, which would explain NH being the “state of issue” for their respective SSDI notices.
I did a search for “Adam Lanza” on emailfinder.com (paid membership), these are the results (name, age, residence):

  1. Adam H. Lanza, age 47, Lake Ariel, PA
  2. Adam Lanza, age 24, Glen Cove, NY
  3. Adam N. Lanza, age 32, Oceanside, CA
  4. Adamo (or Adam) Lanza, age 90, Epping, NH and Seminole, FL
  5. Adam J. Lanza, age 35, Albany, NY
  6. Adam H. Lanza, no age, Waymart, PA
  7. Adam M. Lanza, age 27, Kissimmee, FL
  8. Adam Carmellobergma Lanza, 24, Hartford, CT
  9. Adam J. Lanza, 35, Georgetown, KY
  10. Adam Lanza, Honesdale, PA
A search for “Adam Lanza” on Zaba Free People Search (data from White Pages) obtained these results:

  1. Adam N. Lanza, Las Vegas, NV
  2. Adam Lanza, New Haven, CT
  3. Adam Lanza, Exeter, NH
  4. Adam Lanza, age 32, San Diego, CA (same person as no. 1; see Intelius)
  5. Adam Lanza, age 47, Hicksville, NY
  6. Adam Lanza, age 27, Kissimmee, FL
  7. Adam Lanza, age 47, Lake Ariel, PA (same person as no. 5; see Intelius)
  8. Adam Lanza, age 24, Hartford, CT
  9. Adam Lanza, Seminole, FL

I searched for “Adam Lanza, Exeter, NH” on Spokeo (paid membership), and found:

  • Adam Lanza, age 80s, who lives on North Rd., Exeter, NH (he appears to be the same Adam Lanza, age 80s, who lives on Main St., Epping, NH).

Note that no Adam Lanza in the above lists is age 20.
What are the chances (statistical probability) that a different and unknown Adam Lanza, also age 20 and also originally from the state of New Hampshire as Adam Lanza of Sandy Hook, died one day before the massacre?
Therefore, in all likelihood, SSDI’s Adam Lanza, age 20, who Social Security Death Index says died on Dec. 13, 2012, is the alleged Sandy Hook mass murderer, Adam Lanza of Newtown, CT.

Update (Feb. 2, 2013):

1-2 days ago, SSDI changed the date of death for Adam Lanza to December 14, 2012! See “SSDI changed Adam Lanza’s date-of-death from Dec. 13 to Dec. 14, 2012 !!!.”
Update (Feb. 5, 2013):
As of today, on another genealogy website, Ancestry.com, SSDI still says Adam Lanza had died on Dec. 13, 2012. See “Ancestry.com still has Adam Lanza’s date-of-death as a day before the Sandy Hook massacre.”

Judge puts gag on what police can tell about Sandy Hook massacre

It is now one month four days since the terrible massacre of 26 at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.
Despite the passage of time, questions and skepticism about the official account of what happened not only persist, but are mounting. A main reason for that is the decision by a Connecticut Superior Court judge to gag law enforcement.
The normal sealing period on criminal cases is 14 days. In the case of the Sandy Hook massacre, however, as reported by John Pirro for the ctpost, on Dec. 27, 2012, State Superior Court Judge John Blawie ruled that search warrant affidavits for the cars and home of alleged lone shooter Adam Lanza and his mother would stay sealed for another 90 days, that is, until late March, 2013.
Blawie granted motions filed a day before by State’s Attorney Stephen Sedensky to extend the statutory sealing period for the five warrants, including three for the Lanza family home on Yogonanda Street where 20-year-old Adam had fatally shot his mother, Nancy, four times in the face on the morning of Dec. 14, before embarking on the rampage that left 20 first-graders and six educators dead. The judge’s order also covers the two other search warrants, for the 2010 Honda Civic Adam Lanza drove to the school and for Nancy Lanza‘s 2009 silver BMW, which was parked in the garage attached to the home.
Judge Blawie’s rationale is that “The court finds that due to the nature and circumstances of this case and the ongoing investigation, the state’s interest in continuing nondisclosure substantially outweighs any right to public disclosure at this time.” That is most curious because the alleged perpetrator of the killings, Adam Lanza, allegedly shot himself dead in the school when he heard police arriving — which means there won’t be a criminal trial. Nor are there any lawsuits pending. For that matter, the lawyer who had filed the only lawsuit about the massacre (on behalf of a 6-year-old girl who had witnessed and survived the shootings) quickly withdrew his petition “after facing strong disapproval from people across the country.”
State’s Attorney Stephen Sedensky said in his applications to extend the statutory sealing period, that the affidavits contained information “not known to the general public” and that premature disclosure would “seriously jeopardize the outcome and success of the investigation” by “divulging sensitive and confidential information” known only to investigators. Although no arrests have been made and “none are contemplated,” Sedensky also said the possibility has not been ruled out, and that releasing the information would make it difficult to solve crimes that others might have committed.
All of which leaves us wondering what exactly is the “sensitive and confidential information” “not known to the general public” but “known only to investigators”.
In addition to the questions raised in FOTM’s posts — about police and eyewitness reports of more than one gunman, Sandy Hook memorial and fundraiser webpages and documents dated BEFORE the massacre, the odd behavior of family members of the victims, and the role that professional crisis actors might have played — we have more questions about the massacre. (Go to FOTM’s “Sandy Hook Massacre” page for the questions we’ve raised.) Here is one for today:

Who is Christopher Rodia?

Initial news reports about the massacre, such as this one by Fox News on December 16, 2012, were that sometime before 9:30 a.m. EST on December 14, 2012, Adam Lanza fatally shot his mother, Nancy Lanza, age 52, with a .22 Marlin rifle at their Newtown home. Adam then drove his mother’s car to Sandy Hook Elementary School.
Yahoo! News on Dec. 16, 2012, even had a picture of the car said to be Lanza’s being impounded by police:

Rodia's carPhoto by Michelle McLoughlin/Reuters

On Yahoo! News below the above photo is this: “The car driven by Connecticut school shooter Adam Lanza is towed from Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, December 16, 2012. Lanza carried hundreds of rounds of ammunition when he killed 26 people and then himself at Sandy Hook Elementary School, police said on Sunday.”
Note that the car is a black Honda Civic with license plate “872 YEO”:
Rodia license plate
Adding more credence to the black Honda being the car driven by Adam Lanza is the video below, which shows the police taking a long gun (allegedly one of the firearms Lanza brought to the school) out of the trunk:

But the audio of the Newtown police scanner recordings on the morning of the Sandy Hook shooting referred to a Christopher Rodia as being the owner of the black Honda Civic.

  • An officer says “Connecticut 872 Y Yankee, E Echo, O Oscar, 872 YEO possible suspect vehicle.”
  • At 2:04, an officer with a deep voice, clearly NOT the officer that made the previous 872 YEO license plate report, says: “run the eh… operator, he’s a Florida license Connecticut as well, first name is Rodia, R-O-D-I-A, Christopher A. Date of birth is, eh… August 6th ’69.”


There is a Christo­pher A. Rodia in Connecticut, born in 1969. If you Google his name you will find a report by WTNH8 on July 29, 2012, about Rodia and a young woman (reportedly his niece) being arrested for stealing copper from a home construction site in Westport, CT: “Christopher Rodia, 42, was charged with 3rd degree larceny, conspiracy to commit larceny, criminal mischief, possession of narcotics and failure to carry prescription drugs in a prescribed container.” Their court date was set for August 7, 2012. Here’s Rodia’s mugshot:

UPDATE (Jan. 19, 2013):
We’ve found more info after we first published this post. Turns out Adam’s mom, Nancy Lanza, did own a black Honda Civic, as you can see in this document of her property/vehicle revenue record:

As you can see in the document below, Christopher Rodia owns a 1999 Chevrolet:

All of which just goes to show that rumors proliferate in the absence of official police information because they are gagged by Judge John Blawie!

The man responsible for the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre – Updates

Every day, we get news of yet another horror perpetrated in America — of yet another murder in the crime-ridden streets of a nearby city, of senseless acts like an argument in a New York subway station escalating to the pushing and death of a family man under an oncoming train….
America is no longer a country we recognize.
Yesterday, a new unimaginably EVIL horror was perpetrated in an elementary school in prosperous Newtown, Connecticut.
A young man first killed his mother, then drove in her car to Sandy Hook Elementary School. Calmly, without saying a word, he shot to death 20 little children and 6 adults.

Sandy Hook now has the distinction of being the second worst school shooting in U.S. history — second in the number of victims only to the 2007 Virginia Tech massacre, which left 33 people dead, including the gunman.
Before we even found out the name of the mass murderer, the usual voices on the Left already had started making political haystack out of this latest evil with their usual denunciations of private gun ownership and their usual calls for gun control. To them, I have this question:
“China has had a rash of incidents of lone men going into schools and killing and wounding little children — with a knife. The most recent incident took place just a day before the Sandy Hook massacre. Should America also ban the private ownership of kitchen knives?”
And predictably, the usual Leftist trolls came onto this blog, Fellowship of the Minds, to spew their hateful and very confused accusation, such as this gem by Tmaz123:

“Gun control need to be reviewed. No one needs an assault rifle. The blood of these innocent children are on your hands. Hope you are all happy.”

To Tmaz123 and her ilk, I say:

“No, neither guns nor gun owners are responsible for the Sandy Hook killings. The person who is responsible, who has blood on his hands, is the killer himself — and his parents.”

This is what we know about the Sandy Hook mass murderer, thus far:

Adam Lanza as a child (l) and adult (r)

Adam Lanza as a child (l) and adult (r)

  • He is Adam Lanza, age 20.
  • He lived with his mother, Nancy, in a well-to-do part of prosperous Newtown, a picturesque New England community of 27,000 people about 60 miles northeast of New York City. The Lanzas’ neighbors are doctors or hold white-collar positions at companies such as General Electric, Pepsi and IBM.

Newtown

  • Adam Lanza’s parents, Peter and Nancy, had filed for divorce in 2008. Peter Lanza remarried and lives in Stamford, Conn.; works as a tax director for General Electric; and found out about his son’s murderous rampage from a reporter. ABC News says Nancy was a kindergarten teacher. The AP says at least one Sandy Hook parent said Nancy Lanza mother was a substitute teacher there, but her name did not appear on a staff list. Police official said investigators were unable to establish any connection so far between her and the elementary school.
  • Adam has an older brother, 24-year-old Ryan, whom some reports had initially but mistakenly identified to be the killer. Ryan Lanza lives in Hoboken, N.J., and was at work when his brother committed the massacre. Law enforcement officials said they had questioned Ryan and do not believe him to have been involved in the shootings at Sandy Hook. Ryan told police he had not been in touch with his younger brother since about 2010.
  • Police first said they don’t have a motive for the killer, Adam Lanza, but later indicated they do have evidence for a motive although they refuse to say what it is. Investigators believe Adam had attended Sandy Hook several years ago but appeared to have no recent connection to the school. Daily Mail reports that Adam had “fought with” four Sandy Hook teachers the day before. He killed 3 of the 4 teachers; a fourth teacher wasn’t at the school that horrible day.
  • Adam Lanza was highly intelligent. People who knew him describe him as “brilliant but remote.” He was an honor roll student at Newtown High School, but was living at home instead of attending college or working at a job.
  • Adam Lanza showed signs of being mentally ill. An unnamed law enforcement official who was briefed on the investigation said Adam is believed to have suffered from “a personality disorder.” Neighbors described him as “odd” and displaying characteristics associated with mental illness. His brother Ryan reportedly described Adam as having Asperger Syndrome, a high-functioning form of autism that in some clinical studies has been shown to have a causal link to violence. But Adam’s aunt Marsha Lanza, of Crystal Lake, Ill., said her nephew was raised by kind, nurturing parents who would not have hesitated to seek mental help for him if he needed it. “Nancy wasn’t one to deny reality,” Marsha Lanza said, adding her husband had seen Adam as recently as June and recalled nothing out of the ordinary.
  • Adam Lanza was a Goth. Catherine Urso of Newtown said her college-age son knew Adam  and remembered him for his “alternative style”: “He just said he was very thin, very remote and was one of the goths.”
  • Adam Lanza played video games. He was a member of a technology club at Newtown High School that held computer gaming parties.
  • Adam Lanza killed his victims execution-style, shooting each child up to 11 times. The children were all 1st grade students, about 6 years old.
  • Adam Lanza hated his mother. Before he drove his mother’s car to Sandy Hook elementary school to massacre  innocents, Adam had shot his mother in the face — which, criminal psychologists will tell you, is indicative of a lot of rage and hate.
  • The guns Adam used belonged to his parents. Three guns were found — a Glock and a Sig Sauer, both pistols, inside the school; a .223-caliber high-powered rifle was in the back of the car driven by Adam. CNN reports that all three guns had been purchased by Nancy Lanza. In other words, no amount of psychological screening would have prevented Adam from getting hold of those guns. His access to those guns is his parents’ responsibility.

Like Adam Lanza, the killers at Columbine, Virginia Tech, Tucson AZ, and Aurora CO (Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold; Seung-Hui Cho; Jared Lee Loughner; James Holmes) are all young males from middle or upper-middle class homes.
There is something very wrong with our society and with American families. We are breeding heartless, soul-less, evil psychopaths.
