Possible Motive … Mother was Planning to Commit Sandy Hill Elementary School Killer to a Psychiatric Facility


FOX News is reporting a possible motive for the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre …

According to a lifelong resident of Newtown, CT, 20 year old Adam Lanza may have done on a shooting rampage last Friday, killing his mother and then going to the Sandy Hook Elementary School and murdering 26 people, including 20 children after learning his mother had petitioned the court to have him committed.


The gunman who slaughtered 20 children and six adults at a Connecticut elementary school may have snapped because his mother was planning to commit him to a psychiatric facility, according to a lifelong resident of the area who was familiar with the killer’s family and several of the victims’ families.

Adam Lanza, 20, targeted Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown after killing his mother early Friday because he believed she loved the school “more than she loved him,” said Joshua Flashman, 25, who grew up not far from where the shooting took place. Flashman, a U.S. Marine, is the son of a pastor at an area church where many of the victims’ families worship.

“From what I’ve been told, Adam was aware of her petitioning the court for conservatorship and (her) plans to have him committed,” Flashman told FoxNews.com. “Adam was apparently very upset about this. He thought she just wanted to send him away. From what I understand, he was really, really angry. I think this could have been it, what set him off.”
