Sandy Hook Killer Was Obsessed With School Shootings
On December 14, 2012, 20 children and 6 adults were murdered by 20-year-old Adam Lanza, at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. Before driving to the school, Lanza shot and killed his mother Nancy at their Newtown home, shooting her 4 times in the head. Lanza committed suicide in the school as first responders arrived.
The State’s Attorney has concluded a report on the Sandy Hook Elementary School murders, including investigation into Adam Lanza’s past and actions. It turns out that Adam had a GPS device, and authorities concluded that he had driven to schools in the days prior to entering Sandy Hook Elementary.
The report includes the findings of newspaper articles and other materials indicating that Adam was obsessed with school shootings, including that at Columbine in 1999.
The official report is here and can also be found on the sidebar under “Documents.”
As the anniversary approaches, let’s remember the families who lost their loved ones.
