The strange purchase date and price of Sandy Hook homes

________________

There are those in the blogosphere who maintain or at the very least suspect that the official story of the Dec. 14, 2012 Sandy Hook massacre isn’t true, and who have raised the matter of the rather strange sale date and price of the homes of some of the victims. See, for example, this discussion on a Godlike Productions chat forum.

Their hypothesis goes something like this:

If the massacre, wholly or in part, were a contrived conspiracy — for example, a drill (or a drill that went very bad) — then the major participants or “players” in the elaborate charade would have to be paid off in some way or another.

Indeed, a year ago, in February 2013, I had noticed the same thing — that some of the homes of Sandy Hook victims all had an odd sale/purchase date of 12/25/2009, and an equally odd sale/purchase price of $0.

I had found that information on the website of Vision Government Solutions (VGS), a company that calls itself “a leading supplier of land parcel management software technology and services to local government organizations, enabling efficient assessment, billing, collections, mapping, and permitting.” One of the services provided by VGS is an online database of residential properties in nine states in the northeastern and eastern U.S., one of which is the state of Connecticut. If you know the address of a home in, say, Newtown, CT, you can look up the property’s value, present owner(s), and price history on VGS’s database.

At the time, in February of last year, puzzled by those strange 12/25/2009 sale date and $0 sale price of Newtown homes, I had sent this email to VGS:

Date: 02/05/13 01:43 PM

Subject: Feedback from the Newtown, CT page

Hello, While browsing real estate properties using this database, I noticed a number of homes have the same “date of sale” of 12/25/2009, and a “sale price” of 0 (zero). Please be so kind as to explain. How can a home be sold or purchased for $0?

Thank you,

Dr. _____

This was the response I received:

Feb. 5, 2013

Thank you for your inquiry Dr ____. In most instances of a sale price of $0 the reason would be because of a family sale where the house ownership is simply transferred. [In other words, no money actually changed hands.] The other reason for that to happen would be a town entering a parcel into their database for the first time they must put a first owner and a sale price. Often times they will put $0 as a filler price. The sale date of 12/25/2009 would be the same thing.

Kind Regards,

In addition to emailing VGS, I had also called the Assessor’s Office at Newtown, CT, and left a voice mail asking the same question about the 12/25/2009 sale date and $0 sale price.

An administrative assistant at the Assessor’s Office, Andrea Santillo, promptly returned my phone call. She said that the Newtown city government recently had switched to a new computer system and had not been able to enter the property data for all Newtown homes. So the computer used the 12/25/2009 and $0 as, respectively, a “filler” default sale date and price.

Ms. Santillo’s explanation seemed plausible, and so I did not pursue the matter any further. But that doesn’t mean I’d forgotten about it.

Flash forward a year. I decided to revisit this matter, and went back to VGS’s database. Lo and behold, the strange sale date and price are still there.

So I undertook a systematic investigation into the properties of every Sandy Hook (SH) victim, as well as those of certain non-victims, such as Gene Rosen, who had a prominent media presence in the days immediately after the massacre. What follows is my report on my findings, beginning with my methodology.

Methodology

  1. From media accounts, I made a list of the names of all SH victims, including:
  • The 20 school children who were killed, as well as the names of their parents.
  • The 7 adults who were killed: 6 at SHES; and Nancy Lanza, mother of alleged shooter Adam Lanza.
  1. To that list, I added 6 more people who are not victims but had played significant roles in the aftermath of the massacre. They are:
  • Gene Rosen, who live next to SHES and gave many TV interviews.
  • Laura and Nick Phelps, parents of unharmed SHES students who gave media interviews and who bear a striking resemblance to professional “crisis actors” Jennifer Greenberg Sexton and Richard Sexton. (See “Remarkable resemblance of Sandy Hook victims and professional crisis actors“)
  • The three members of Newtown’s governing body, the Board of Selectmen: Elin Patricia Llodra, William Rodgers, and James Gaston Sr. (Newtown does not have a mayor.)
  1. Using two people search engines, Email Finder and Spokeo, of which I am a paid member, I found the addresses of the people on the list.

  2. I then looked up the price history of those addresses on four websites:

  • Vision Government Solutions.
  • Trulia, a real estate website.
  • Zillow, a real estate website. (Neither Trulia nor Zillow gives the names of property owners.)
  • Connecticut Town Clerks Portal, a website of land records — including Newtown’s — which allows only those who have paid a fee to search its records. Interestingly, after I had paid for a 24-hour access to the site, I got this message about Newtown: “The mortgages, liens and probate certificates of the town of Newtown are not available online at this time.”

Zillow says “historical transaction data is not available for this home.”

20. E. (Elin) Patricia Llodra, 70:

Llodra is the First Selectman and head of Newtown’s 3-member Board of Selectmen who supervise the administration of the town. Like the other two board members (#21 and #22 below), Llodra was elected to a 2-year term (12/1/2011 to 12/1/2013), which means the three were in charge of Newtown at the time of the Sandy Hook massacre. All three were recently reelected to another 2-year term (12/1/2013 to 12/1/2015).

A year ago, when I looked up Ellin P. Llodra on people search engines, her address was listed as 90 Riverside Rd, Sandy Hook, CT 06482.

VGS a year ago and today says Owner of Record: Robert M. & Ellin P. Llodra
Ownership history: Sold to Robert M. & Ellin P. Llodra on 12/25/2009 for $0.

VGS does not list Woodbury, CT on its online database. Trulia says 11 Upper Commons is a condo that was sold on Sept. 22, 2003 for $136,000.

To do the property searches on VGS yourself:

  1. Go to Vision Government Solutions’ website: https://www.vgsi.com/vision/Applications/ParcelData/Home.aspx
  2. Click “Connecticut” on left side of page. This will take you to:
  3. Online Database for the cities of Connecticut: https://www.vgsi.com/vision/Applications/ParcelData/CT/Home.aspx
  4. Scroll down until you see “Newtown.” Click “Newtown”.
  5. This will take you to the Assessors Online Database for Newtown, CT: https://data.visionappraisal.com/NewtownCT/DEFAULT.asp
  6. Click the box “Enter Online Database”.
  7. You’ll be taken to the “Property Assessment Search / Newtown CT” page: https://data.visionappraisal.com/NewtownCT/search.asp
  8. Type in the number and street name, then click “Search”.

TO CONCLUDE:

The homes of 15 of the 20 Sandy Hook child victims, 1-2 of the 7 adult victims, and all 6 of the Sandy Hook adult non-victims (the Phelps, Gene Rosen, the three Selectmen) have the mysterious sale date and $0 sale price.

At the very least, that is interesting. The three Selectmen are especially interesting because if the hypothesis is that the massacre was a contrived event, then Newtown’s highest governing body would have to be “in the know.”

Your guess is as good as mine as to what all those strange 12/25/2009 sale dates and $0 sale price mean. I’d appreciate input from readers of this blog who are in the real estate business and can shed some light on what the odd sale date and sale price mean.

Great job, Dr. Eowyn, you and others, please keep up the good work. Mr. Kowalski owns 6 Bennetts Bridge Road, the same road as that on which Suzanne Summers, author of “Hunger Games”, owns property. And only one road lies between Bennetts Bridge Road and Yogananda Street. Also, Veronique Pozner has more than one residential and professional listing.

Yes, partly that, as a legal consultant on matters re gun control (and born in Switzerland.) Looked into it some time ago, will have to refresh my memory.
Regarding autopsy, Dr. Carver said that Noah was autopsied, Veronique said that he was not. It is not customary to allow cutting of the Jewish body to be buried.

There seems to be too many tracks for the perpetrators to cover all of them. Great work, Dr. Eowyn.

Another curious anomaly: Several of the “$0 sales” are preceded by a sale to the same person a few years before for what appears to be a “market price” — i.e. the Sandy Hook victim bought the house previously, then sold it to themselves for $0.00 a few years later.

It looks like the loan was paid off by some one else and the deed remained in the original buyers name.

Which ones specifically. I have looked at a bunch of the county records and am not sure there really is something off, except the actual docs are offline.

Looks like lots of refis and typical property record stuff. I have researched other county records before for different reasons and I think theses are not that abnormal. The Vision site seems to have the anomalies.

I am open to whatever and I know how to research. Tell me which property addresses are suspect.

Well think of it like this if a government agency cleared you of ever having to pay taxes on this property ever again how would you go about it? Why the same way you sell a used car to a second party you would sell the car for a certain price, say 5000 dollars but would document that you sold the vehicle for 500 what does that do? less price you have to pay to dmv to register it for the new buyer. so taking that into this situation if you could guarantee that no one would pay taxes on… Read more »

The sale price is not necessarily the taxed value. I am interested in the conspiracy angle and firmly oppose gun control, however, I don’t know if that’s a valid notion. I don’t know how CT works, but in MA, my property taxes are determined by the “assessed value” (likely to make sure you can’t do the “underdeclared price” scheme to avoid taxes.) So regardless of what I paid, the town assesses my property, usually higher than actual market of course, and taxes me on that number. Of course, MA’s rmv does the same b.s. So. You can’t sell your car… Read more »

Astonishing. Keep up the great detective work Dr. Eowyn!

If I’m understanding this correctly,and I could be all wrong,it appears that most of these homes were re-sold shortly after the “massacre”,which would lead me to think the residents moved in some time before the shootings and left not long after. seems odd that the sale prices of $0 were never corrected-I don’t know how the City could make their budget work with sloppy documentation like that.

The first 3 you list look like what I think is happening is in 2009 a new puter system was put on line. It shows a before price, a zero transaction in 09, but then it shows another sale price after. That explains 3. Umm the rest I can’t explain. I mean they have had 5 yrs in Mayberry to implement their new system so if that’s what they were doing I think they could have done it by now.
Great catch Eowyn.

I wonder if somebody could do a freedom of information act request to the newtown city council or the county clerks office or whatever the appropriate local agency is, in order to determine whether or not they actually did get a new computer system or a new software system installed at that time. Before leaping to conclusions, we need to rule out coincidence. Also, we have to wonder were there other homes in the area that were seemingly on related to sandy hook, that also had these same odd date and price characteristics? Or were these the only properties which… Read more »

Dr.Eowyn, you have done outstanding research on this! I have referred so many to these articles. Isn’t it something that this was not investigated by one single tv news reporter. Just like all of the other false flag events,clear back to the gulf oil spill.

There are not too many around = persistence + determination, combined with analytical thinking & “eagle eyes” (to see things that others don’t see), plus a “meticulous concern for detail”! You got it all! Great job (a lot of work!) digging up all those DETAILS & then making an exact 1-2-3 list for easy reading.

Mad Jewess, by my count, you’re talking about 70-80% or more of the population. PT Barnum said, “There’s a sucker born every minute.” and “No one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American people.” Turns out he’s right. And that was before television and mass media. God help us.

PS: That podcast I mentioned above, I just listened to the whole thing. Oh my goodness, that man is a saint, his name is Woolfgang W. Halbig. What sincere passion! He makes my heart ache. He is 67 years old, & began his Sandy Hook investigation about 2 months after the “event.” He went through all the normal legal channels, Freedom of Information Act, made numerous calls to EVERYBODY in Sandy Hook (school board, police, city, etc.) but says they won’t return calls. By the end of that year, Dec. 2013 (two months ago), he was visited at his home… Read more »

Well Dr. Eowyn, people selling houses to themselves for no price seems to be a rather sizable glitch, if glitch it be. Perhaps this is evidence of a “money trail” wherein many of the people in question were paid off by having debts “dissolved”, among other things? Another question that comes to mind is, did anything peculiar occur on 12/25 of ’09, of note to the research community, say psy-ops and the like? Also I should mention the pagan significance of the 25th, with the yule-tide and all, for those into witchcraft etc. that day or period of days has… Read more »

0 dollars, same name…follow the money trail…were their mortgages paid off as payment to keep quiet? All it would take is one simple bookkeeping (computer) entry in a credit based monetary system such as we have…also, here is a recent podcast…absolutely fantastic

My only guess would be that perhaps the homes sold to the present owners for $0 were refinanced at that time or something? However, I believe the entire event was a hoax involving fake people and no one actually died. I don’t doubt it took two years or more to plan and put into effect. Truth cannot be supressed forever, it always makes itself known in time.

It would only be “interesting” if this was something that only these homes had in common.
You obviously didn’t do a check of any other homes.
Because if 99% of the homes in Sandy Hook had that property (that the system lists the same sale date, $0 sale price and “previous owner = new owner”), you don’t have anything to complain about.

On 12/25/09 – Christmas – the Town Office, like ALL gov offices, would have been CLOSED.

Is there the same date/$0 sale price on, say, 20 random property owner’s records? Maybe it was an artifact of a switch-over in computer systems.

It was Santa who give them those houses?

Well, as i read it, the houses are sold to the city hall, and the people dissapeard. But that is from my perspective as IT guru.

I think the 12/25/2009 date is an arbitrary placeholder, but it may in fact represent a land transaction of some kind. In TN, at the state assessor level, many oldest or earliest entries on a property will show 01/01/1901 and $0, but give the deed book and page number, which of course would reveal the real date and price. This usually is the case with older farms and larger parcels that have been contiguous for 50+ years – or if the record is that old (usually only in book, not microfilmed or electronic record). The $0 transaction explanation is also… Read more »

Were there such sales to others that were not connected to Sandy Hook? Are there any development deals in the works that would explain a revaluation of property in Newtown (just thinking out loud)? Has there been any chatter about development deals with companies connected to the Selectmen? Perhaps a devaluation to essentially “steal” the land at rock bottom prices? Again, just thinking out loud here.

HI Dr. Eowyn. As usual….Great post! They have been posting your work over on Birther Report and here are a couple of other posts over there that I thought you might be interested in. I had not seen these before. I hope this retired cop can get to the bottom of this and expose this Fraud and Treason! I pray that God will keep him and all involved in his investigation safe.

James, if they had SSNs (which nearly all do from birth nowadays) then you “should” be able to find out when they officially died via the SS Administration site. Of course, I believe this will require the birth date, as you pointed out.

Dr. Eowyn,

You can search just by last name, select a names result, check the names for both parties, if a couple and see all the recorded docs.

Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this phenomenal post. Your extensive research and the time it took you to prepare this post cannot be more emphasized. I appreciate all of your hard work, your expertise and incredible effort. I read every entry in your report. As a person who is familiar with title searches, having been required to be in a former legal capacity, I cannot fathom why any of the owners in question would sell property back to themselves all on the date of “12/25/09”. I cannot understand it. Perhaps this fraud has been planned since 2009 and there is… Read more »

Personally I think this is totally debunked. If you simply go to the recorders office and look up any of those names you will see current mortgages listed. I looked up DETRICK, LYNN E DETRICK, D JEFFREY MORTGAGE ELECTRONIC REGISTRATION SYSTEMS INC QUICKEN LOANS INC DETRICK, DONALD J AKA And found their’s .

I am both glad & sad found this site. Glad because there is a chance the truth can be known. Sad because we live in a world where these lies can be even thought of, much less acted out to the degree they have been. Mr. Halbig is a very brave man. I have felt in my bones that Sandy Hook was a fraud since day one. Even more so after seeing some very fake newscasts of parents of the school children who were supposed to have been murdered. I am a parent myself. I know how I would feel… Read more »

Hey Doc,
The Newtown records are online now. I did not sign up to pay to see documents, but the docs are back online. Signing in as “Guest” still allows you to see the list of docs. If one is so inclined the can pay to see the actual documents ie. mortgages, etc.

I have checked many of the $0 properties on http://www.thewarrengroup.com/ and do not find any entries that relate to these”transactions” except Peter Lanza to Nancy Lanza for $1 on 2/8/2011. This is a very reliable source.

this was a great post. Did it ever occur to anyone that there is a cult that is/has taking/taken over there? The movie Hot Fuzz comes to mind. Think, cult members are some of the only people that could be talked into sacrificing their children for some kind of unorthodox religious cause (explaining the obvious lack of sincerity in virtually all of the witnesses media appearances). Cults also tend to covet the property of their victims, homes being among the most valuable. Cults prey on fear and grief. They would also eye the education of children to ensure compliance later.… Read more »

this doesn’t really scream ‘conspiracy’, accounting records and property docs are frequently pencil whipped and the truth is, people are stupid and don’t do their jobs well. So for tax purposes people will pretty much pencil whip whatever they can so long as the government has whatever they need. just because a online doc, or request for information appears a certain way doesn’t mean anything. Paperwork is just that. Paper that has been worked. Could go either way, the truth is this was a planned scam for this group of very smart people to deceive the public into donations, and… Read more »

The $0 appears to be a transfer or reset. I also have done research (geneology) in the court house. Those records are (for the most part) real and one can physically look at them and see deed history. Even if a town has started using computers or some data base, there are paper documents in the courthouse. You can also search names in the courthouse for any legal issues; this could be used to verify the name of the person is really associated with the town or even the county.

What i see on Zillow those are Public Records -so it has been recorded. Definitely some transaction took place. My guess is those houses being payed off. Most of them being sold, empty or for sale..I think they “who ever are” payed off their loan amount. Now they can all sell their homes for a good price,,,
