Saddleback Church Pastor Rick Warren’s 27 Year Old Son, Matthew Warren, Has Passed Away … Commits Suicide, RIP
27 year old Matthew Warren, the youngest son of Saddlebrook Church pastor and the author of ‘The Purpose Driven Life’, Rick Warren, has passed away from an apparent suicide. In a statement from the Saddleback Church, “Matthew was an incredibly kind, gentle and compassionate young man whose sweet spirit was encouragement and comfort to many.” However, it appears Mathew struggled with extreme mental illness and depression. The statement went on to say that, “Unfortunately, he also suffered from mental illness resulting in deep depression and suicidal thoughts.” Sadly, Matthew Warren succumbed to his demons and took his life. According to police, Matthew Warren was found dead of what appeared to be suicide by gunshot in his home in Mission Viejo, CA. An autopsy is scheduled for this coming Tuesday.
Matthew Warren … Rest in Peace
The youngest son of Rick Warren, author of “The Purpose Driven Life,” has committed suicide, the evangelical pastor said in a letter to members of his church on Saturday.
Matthew Warren, the youngest son of Warren and his wife Kay, died after a long struggle with mental illness, according to the statement from Saddleback Valley Community Church in Lake Forest, Calif. The church asked for “everyone to join us in praying for the entire Warren family” on Saturday.
“At 27 years of age, Matthew was an incredibly kind, gentle and compassionate young man whose sweet spirit was encouragement and comfort to many,” Saddleback Church said in the statement. “Unfortunately, he also suffered from mental illness resulting in deep depression and suicidal thoughts.”
Pastor Rick Warren wrote about his son’s death in an emotional letter to his church:
“No words can express the anguished grief we feel right now.” He had a brilliant intellect and a gift for sensing who was most in pain or most uncomfortable in a room. He’d then make a bee-line to that person to engage and encourage them.”
“In spite of America’s best doctors, meds, counselors, and prayers for healing, the torture of mental illness never subsided.” Today, after a fun evening together with Kay and me, in a momentary wave of despair at his home, he took his life.”
As reported at CBS News, Pastor Rick Waren recalled his son’s past struggles with mental illness and depression.
“I’ll never forget how, many years ago, after another approach had failed to give relief, Matthew said `Dad, I know I’m going to heaven. Why can’t I just die and end this pain?”‘ Warren recalled.
Despite that, he said, his son lived for another decade, during which he often reached out to help others.
“You who watched Matthew grow up knew he was an incredibly kind, gentle, and compassionate man,” Warren wrote. “He had a brilliant intellect and a gift for sensing who was most in pain or most uncomfortable in a room. He’d then make a bee-line to that person to engage and encourage them.”
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.
Country Singer Mindy McCready Dead at 37 of an Apparent Suicide, Self Inflicted Gun Shot Wound … Rest in Peace
The troubled life of country singer Mindy McCready has come to an end.
Country singer Mindy McCready died Sunday afternoon at the age of 37 of an apparent suicide from what sis being reported at a self inflicted gunshot wound. The Cleburne County Sheriff’s Office is stating that deputies were dispatched to the home of McCready around 3:30 PM in Heber Springs, Arkansas after gun shots were reported. Police found Mindy McCready on the front porch with a single self inflicted gunshot wound. McCready was pronounced dead at the scene. McCready has had a long and troubled past in dealing with her demons. She has been arrested multiple times on drug charges and probation violations and has been hospitalized for overdoses on several occasions. McCready had attempted suicide twice before, once in 2005 and again in 2008. Also, the father of her youngest child, record producer David Wilson, was found dead in his home just last month on January 13, 2013 of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. Mindy McCready was such a talent, but just could not deal with her demons. May she finally rest in eternal peace.
Mindy McCready “You’ll Never Know”
Mindy McCready (November 30, 1975—February 17, 2013)
Mindy McCready, the country singer who soared to the top of the charts with her debut album, “Ten Thousand Angels,” but struggled with substance abuse, served time in jail and fought a lengthy battle with her mother over custody of her son has died of what appears to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound, police said. She was 37.
Deputies from the Cleburne County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to a report of gun shots fired at McCready’s Heber Springs, Ark., home at around 3:30 p.m. today.
There they found McCready on the front porch. She was pronounced dead at the scene from what appeared to be a single self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to a statement from the sheriff’s office.
20/20 from ABC News : Mindy McCready Tells Her Story … Sadly she talks about living for her son Zander. That came to an end today
More on the life and times of Mindy McCready and her star that flamed out far too quickly. Mindy McCready was a Nashville, TN sensation at the age of 20 and took the country music industry by storm. It’s just a shame and should be a wake up call to all as to the real dangers of substance abuse and major depression. Like many of the situations we have seen with mass murder violence, we really need to take a look at the mental health care system in this country. All this talent and she could not defeat the demons.
She arrived in Nashville in 1994 with tapes of her karaoke vocals and earned a recording contract with BNA Records.
In 1996, her “Guys Do It All the Time” hit No. 1 and its dig at male chauvinism endeared her to females. Her other hits included “Ten Thousand Angels,” also in 1996, and her album by that title sold 2 million copies.
However, personal problems plagued her beginning in 2004 and included a custody battle with her mother over one of her sons.
McCready took her older son Zander from her mother and the boy’s legal guardian, Gayle Inge, in late 2011. She fled to Arkansas without permission over what she called child abuse fears. Authorities eventually found McCready hiding in a residence without permission and took the boy into custody.
She and her boyfriend David Wilson had a son, Zayne, in April of 2012. The older son has a different father.
Maybe now Mindy McCready can finally rest in peace. I would rather remember Mindy from her early days in Nashville when her life and career seemed so promising. Mindy McCready’s lyrics of Ten Thousand Angels are rather prophetic on this sad day where she took her life … “It’s time to face my weakness, Look him in the eye. Lord knows it won’t be easy, But I’ve just gotta try.”
Mindy McCready – Ten Thousand Angels
Speaking of the devil
Look who just walked in
He knows just where to find me
Here we go again
I can tell he’s gonna ask me to dance
But that’s not as far as he wants to go
I need ten thousand angels
To help me tell him no
Lead me not into temptation
Heaven help me to be strong
I can fight all that I’m feeling
But I can’t do it alone
Help me break this spell that I’m under
Guide my feet and hold me tight
I need ten thousand angels
Watching over me tonight
It’s time to face my weakness
Look him in the eye
Lord knows it won’t be easy
But I’ve just gotta try
I can’t let myself get lost in his arms
That’s how I got my heart broke before
I need ten thousand angels
To walk me out the door

Ohio State University Study Shows Prolonged Exposure to Violent Video Games Increases Aggression … Newtown, CT Adam Lanza was a Gamer
Before everyone is so quick to blame only guns for the tragic events in Newtown, CT, parents might want to look at the below study and violent video games.
So you think it is all about the guns when it comes to violence. WRONG! Since the heartbreaking murders of 20 innocent children and 6 school staffers hit the news last Friday, many have been grappling with the question of how this could happen? What could have gone so wrong? How could 20 year old Adam Lanza shoot his mother and then go on a murdering spree at the Sandy Hook Elementary School. Many Democrat tragedy opportunists have blamed in all on guns. Sorry, but if we want to be honest about all of this and want to protect our children not only from future Adam Lanza’s, but from themselves, then we have to look at many other factors and issues in this case and many other recent mass murders.
Call of Duty
It is important to take a look at the following study from Ohio State on violent video games and human, or I should inhuman behavior. The study determined that More Playing Time Violent Video Games Equals More Aggression. Makes sense now doesn’t it. The study basically compares continued violent video game use to the use of cigarettes. The longer and prolonged Gaming and exposed to violent games, the greater the damage.
On each of the three test days, the study saw 70 undergraduate participants exposed to either violent games – including Call of Duty 4 (VIDEO trailer) and Condemned 2 (VIDEO trailer) – or passive titles – including DiRT 2 and Pure – for 20 minutes at a time.
After playing, participants were asked to then read the start of a story, and then at the end come up with 20 possible follow-on actions the protagonist could take, with the players of violent games opting for more aggressive solutions when compared to the passive players.
Then, participants were told that there was another participant in another room, and that they had to compete with them by playing a 25-trial videogame, with the aim of being the first person to respond to visual cues on screen.
The winner would then have the power of sending the other person a ‘noise blast’ through their headphones – such as the sound of nails down a chalkboard or a dentist drill. Players of violent games leaned towards sending their opponent a louder, more prolonged sound, while passive players were kinder to their fellow participant.
It should be noted however that there actually was no other participant, just in case someone got their ear drums blown out.
By the end of the study the research found, “people who played a violent video game for three consecutive days showed increases in aggressive behaviour and hostile expectations each day they played. Meanwhile, those who played non-violent games showed no meaningful changes in aggression or hostile expectations over that period.
Imagine what happens when an already disturbed individual with mental illness who has bonding issues is exposed to such violent videos over a prolonged period of time? Ever wonder how some one could become so desensitized that they would have no empathy in killing 6 and 7 year old children? These games reward you for for shooting your victims multiple times and multiple head shots folks. Hmm, sound familiar? What every happened to the video games Donkey Kong, Dig-Dug, Breakout and Space Invaders? What the hell happened to our country and culture that such violence like what exists in actual war is now the norm?
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?
Neighbors and Classmates Say Crazed School Killer Adam Lanza Was Troubled & Shy … Older Brother Ryan Said Adam was Autistic … Deeply Disturbed
As everyone breaks down the mindset of school shooter Adam Lanza, could he have just been pure EVIL?
So what is the personality make up of a 20 year old that would wake up one day, kill his mother and then head off to an elementary school and murder in cold blood 20 children from the ages of 5 to 10 and six adults? It is being reported in the NY Post that Adam Lanza, the individual responsible for the mass murder yesterday in Newtown, CT at the Sandy Hook Elementary School, was a troubled and shy individual. Many people, whether they be neighbors or classmates, noticed that Adam had issues, was socially awkward and was struggling to be social. Adam’s brother, Ryan, who was first inaccurately said to be the shooter, told investigators that his brother was autistic.
Shooter Adam Lanza, 2005 photo
Crazed kid-killer Adam Lanza was a troubled “genius” who was painfully awkward and shy.
“I know he had issues,” said Beth Israel, whose daughter, Alex, went to school with Lanza. “He was a really troubled kid. I think he had learning disabilities.”
Adam’s brother told investigators that the gunman was autistic, sources said. Israel described him to The Post as a sort of autistic savant, saying he was “very smart, but he had issues. He was a real genius.
“He was just a weird kid. He was a very quiet kid, a shy kid, maybe socially awkward,” Israel added.
Adam Lanza used multiple guns during the mass murder in Newtown , CT. Police found guns inside and outside of the school. The guns were registered to his mother, who Adam had killed earlier in the morning before he went on the school shooting rampage. Sadly, I have to ask the question how a child with such mental issues had any access to such guns?
Investigators said three guns were found – a Glock and a Sig Sauer, both pistols, inside the school, and a .223-caliber rifle in the back of a car.
A law enforcement official says that the weapons were registered to Lanza’s mother.
The official says that a fourth weapon was found outside the school and that investigators have been going to shooting ranges and gun stores to see if Lanza had frequented them.
But the question is, who does socially awkward, a learning disability or autistic savant turn into a cold blooded killer capable of such a heinous crime and the unspeakable act of killing young children? Such actions require such a black heart and soul that it is incomprehensible for any of us to understand. So, was he just pure evil without a soul?
UPDATE I: If Adam Lanza was such a “deeply disturbed kid,” had major issues, was “subject to outbursts” and was a was a “ticking time bomb”... then some one needs to explain to me how he had any access and even knew that his mother was in the possession of registered guns? As stated at The Dana Show, this is not a problem of gun control, its one of mental illness. Lanza, like many other mass shooters were disturbed young men that no law could deter from their intended destruction. Why were the warning signs ignored?
He was dark and disturbed, a deeply troubled boy from a wealthy family who unnerved his neighbors and classmates.
Mass murderer Adam Lanza, 20, was a ticking time bomb, people who knew him told the Daily News.
“This was a deeply disturbed kid,” a family insider told the Daily News. “He certainly had major issues. He was subject to outbursts from what I recall.”
Lanza, who friends and officials said suffered from Asperger’s syndrome or a personality disorder, had a tortured mind.
UPDATE II: It is now being confirmed that Nancy Lanza, the murdered mother of shooter Adam Lanza, was not affiliated with Sandy Hook Elementary School. Sorry, but this is not a gun control issue as Adam Lanza did not purchase these guns, they were registered to his mother. However, I will say that this is more of an issue of dealing with mental illness in individuals and those who own guns to keep them away from the criminally insane of those who like to go to elementary schools and shoot children.
