Nancy Lanza, Murdered Mother of Sandy Hook Elementary School Gunman Adam Lanza … Not a Teacher or Associated with School?
Was Nancy Lanza a teacher at the Sandy Hook Elementary school?
Hmm, with the fog of a horrific story like the shooting deaths of 20 elementary school children from the ages of 5 to 10 and six other adults, it is some what understandably that there might be some info got wrong. However, the following fact is kind of an important one and has not yet been addressed or brought up during this mornings police press conference, was Nancy Lanza a teacher, a substitute or associated with Sandy Hook Elementary School?
A former school board official in Newtown called into question earlier reports that Nancy Lanza had been connected to Sandy Hook Elementary School, possibly as part of the teaching staff.
“No one has heard of her,” said Lillian Bittman, who served on the local school board until 2011. “Teachers don’t know her.”
So many news outlets have reported and continue to report that the murdered mother of crazed gunman Adam Lanza was a teacher at the school. However, the above report contradicts that account. TPM has a good review of the many accounts of whether or not she was involved with the school? The Newtown School District website does not list Lanza as a teacher or administrator in the district school system.
Later Update #5: Here we seem to be getting a bit more of a handle on the origins of this. According to the AP, the origin of Lanza’s alleged tie to the school seems tenuous …
A law enforcement official speaking on condition of anonymity said investigators believe Lanza attended the school several years ago but appeared to have no recent connection to the place.
At least one parent said Lanza’s mother was a substitute teacher there. But her name did not appear on a staff list. And the law enforcement official said investigators were unable to establish any connection so far between her and the school.
UPDATE II: I had just heard it reported again on FOX News TV, it is being confirmed that Nancy Lanza, the deceased mother of shooter Adam Lanza, was not affiliated or working with the Sandy Hook Elementary School.
UPDATE III: Good grief, the mom was not a teacher or affiliated with the elementary school, so that means that this nut just liked to gun down little kids? Oh dear God.
