Newtown, CT Shooter Adam Lanza Researched Mass Murderers Prior to Sandy Hook Elementary School Massacre
In the end, are mass murders as simple as one sick, mentally deranged individual trying to out do the previous one?
As reported at the Hartford Courant, Adam Lanza, the individual responsible for the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings in Newtown, CT that left 26 dead, conducted research on several mass murders. There has been previous news accounts that investigators had found news articles about Norwegian mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik at Lanza’s Newtown home. Now sources are saying that the investigators also found articles and other documents related to other mass murders in one of two bedrooms he used in the house that he shared with his mother, Nancy. Lanza shot and killed his mother first in the home before he went to the elementary school and went on a mass murder spree.
Another reason to monitor your crazy children … Adam Lanza researched mass murders, prior to his own
As we have stated in the past, no gun ban that Dianne Feinstein, Democrats and Barack Obama can dream up to punish law abiding Second Amendment Americans is going to prevent a mass murder where we have severely deranged individuals who are hell-bent on outdoing the previous deranged mass murderer. These crazoids are trying to outdo each other. This is about crazy, not guns.
Before carrying out the Dec. 14 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School, Adam Lanza conducted research on several mass murders, sources close to the investigation into the shooting have told The Courant.
The Courant had previously reported that investigators found news articles about Norwegian mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik at Lanza’s Newtown home. Sources now say that investigators found articles and other documents related to other mass murders in one of two bedrooms he used in the house that he shared with his mother, Nancy.
Lanza killed 26 people, including 20 first-graders, on the morning of Dec. 14 before taking his own life as police closed in. Lanza had first shot and killed his mother at their house.
State police gave the victims’ families, Sandy Hook teachers and first-responders an update on the investigation last week in which, sources said, they discussed the theory that Lanza was trying to outdo other killers.
From The LA Times:
The Stamford Advocate, citing an unnamed source, said officials found documents on “virtually every mass murder” in the United States and elsewhere after searching the Lanza home.
The source said they found “a lot of material” in particular on Charles Carl Roberts IV, who attacked an Amish schoolhouse in 2006, killing five girls.
The Associated Press also reported that literature on other mass shootings was found at his house.
