Mother of Newtown, CT Shooter Nancy Lanza Feared Son Adam Was “Getting Worse” … Was Burning Himself With a Lighter … “She Was Losing Him”
In the days leading up to the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre, Nancy Lanza, the mother of mass murderer Adam Lanza feared that Adam was “getting worse” and she was “losing him”. Nancy Lanza told a friend, that he [Adam] was burning himself with a lighter in his ankles or arms … “It was like he was trying to feel something.” Nancy Lanza stated that she was having trouble reaching her son and things were getting worse. That might be the understatement of the year.
Less than a week before her son would launch his horrifying attack on Sandy Hook Elementary School, gun-loving mom Nancy Lanza knew “she was losing him” and that “he was getting worse.”
A drinking buddy of Lanza’s told the Daily News that her son Adam had long been troubled and rarely came up in conversation.
“She just looked down at the glass and said, ‘I don’t know. I’m worried I’m losing him,’” said the bar pal, who asked not to be named, of the ominous conversation at the watering hole My Place in Newtown, Conn.
“She said it was getting worse. She was having trouble reaching him.”
The question remains, how does a parent knowing they have a troubled child who is getting worse not seek help and potentially institutionalize their child? This kid was obviously a danger to himself and as would play out last Friday morning in Newtown, CT, he became a danger to others. Before leaving for the Sandy Hook Elementary School, Adam Lanza shot his mother four times in the face in her bed at their home. Before leaving the home Adam tried to destroy one of his hardrives on his computer showing that he obviously knew what he was doing and was looking to cover it up. Adam Lonza then went to the Sandy Hook Elementary School where he killed 26 individuals, including 20 children, 6 adults and then committed suicide once he heard police sirens and authorities on the way.
Good grief, a child with bonding issues, severe mental issues who was getting worse, incapable of felling, exposed to guns as a form of bonding, who was only exposed to violent video games and a computer as his social outlet and no one thought this was a bad thing. UNREAL. I do not wanty to hear she did not have the resources to deal with this child because she was a single mom. Did she even try or are we presented with another moocher who had to have govermnet take care of her situation? How did that work out for everyone?
