Adam Lanza: No Motive Found In Sandy Hook Massacre

Danbury State’s Attorney Stephen J. Sedensky III, officially closed the investigation of Adam Lanza, the sole mastermind behind the December 14, 2012 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Danbury, Connecticut. Lanza, 20, entered the school by shooting eight rounds through a window, letting himself inside the building where he would ultimately kill 26 people. The mass shooting was the second-worst in U.S. history, taking the lives of 27 people, including Adam’s mother, six school personnel, and, unfathomably, 20 first-grade children.

From the time Lanza entered the school until he shot himself was barely 11-minutes – but they are 11-minutes of the worst horror imaginable. The disturbed young shooter killed 20 six-year-old children with a high-powered Bushmaster .223. Officials say that Lanza, who weighed only 112 pounds, carried 31 pounds of ammunition into the building with him that day – he had 253 rounds of ammunition when he died.

Sedensky released the nearly 50-page report on Monday, saying that no charges would be filed, and that officials had assembled a comprehensive timeline of the fateful morning. Sedensky also reported that after the scrupulous investigation to find a possible motive was completed and fruitless, the reason behind the carnage would probably forever be unknown.

The investigation into Adam Lanza lasted eleven months, and included a painstakingly-thorough sweep of the 20-year-old’s bedroom at the home he shared with his mother, Nancy Lanza. Nancy had apparently been worried about her son in the weeks before the murders – Adam had not left the home in three months, and only communicated with his mother by email or text message.

The bedroom of Adam Lanza yielded a number of horrifying documents and evidence, such as the spreadsheet he kept that listed detailed accounts of mass murders that had taken place since 1891, as well as newspaper clippings. He was also reportedly captivated by the 1999 school shooting at Columbine High School in Colorado.

Other than the bizarre behaviors Lanza exhibited, police were unable to find anyone, or anything, to tie Lanza and his possible reasoning to the carnage. The most vital piece of evidence – Adam Lanza’s computer – was destroyed before he went to Sandy Hook on December 14th. Police believe he shot his mother in the head before destroying his hard drive and driving to the school.

In the timeline, investigators concluded that Lanza probably entered Sandy Hook Elementary around 9:29 a.m. by shooting eight rounds into a glass window. Once inside, the shooter fired sixteen rounds down the hall, which took the lives’ of Principal Dawn Hochsprung, and psychologist Mary Sherlach. After killing the two women, Lanza is believed to have walked to the office where he looked for anyone hiding. Finding no one, he then walked, and entered, the classroom of either Victoria Soto or Lauren Rousseau. (Police were unable to determine which room Lanza entered first, although he did eventually kill himself in Soto’s room.) In Rousseau’s classroom, Lanza shot and killed Rousseau, aide Rachel D’Avino, and fired 80 shots at the children. One child in Rousseau’s room survived by hiding behind her classmates in the bathroom.

Lanza then proceeded to the next classroom, presumably that of Victoria Soto, and fired 50 shots, killing Soto, aide Mary Anne Murphy, and 5 of the children. According to The Hartford Courant, one of the students was “found under Murphy. Nine children survived in Soto’s classroom, six after they were told by student Jesse Lewis to run when Lanza’s gun jammed. Lewis was one of the children killed.”

At 9:35:39, the first 911 call from the school was placed by the school janitor, Rick Thorne, who had been running to classrooms, locking the doors and telling children and adults to stay inside. Four minutes after placing that call, the first officers arrived on the scene, though they waited outside for two minutes before entering the building, to ensure there was not another shooter. Upon their arrival, officers reported hearing gunshots, and within six minutes, officials were inside the building. Lanza is believed to have shot himself within minutes of the first officer to arrive; he died at 9:40 a.m.

The report states that a more extensive narration of the murders will be released at a later time by the state police.

    1. Show me the shooter. Show me the video. They did this at Columbine.
    2. Show me bodies.
    3. Explain to me why you tore down the whole building and made every construction worker sign confidentiality agreements and forbade them to talk to the press. What are they covering up?
    4. Explain to me how the same “witness” was at both Sandy Hook and the Boston Bombings.
    5. Explain to me how when I look at the raw Helicopter footage of the event, I see 75 vehicles, one fire truck, one police car, and about 25 people standing around. I do not see a single ambulance. I do not see people rushing in and out of the building. I do not see panic and confusion. I do not see any injured.

    My God, 26 children just got murdered!!

    A mass shooting would have trauma helicopters flying children out one after another while performing CPR the entire way to the hospital and patients would be declared dead at the hospital after extensive measures were taken to try to save lives. The one thing that baffled me…was an interview with the ER physician who said no patients arrived. I’ve been in the ER for 5 years and we get ALL code blue patients. We get 80 year old nursing home patients that have not been breathing for 20 minutes with no chance of survival.

    Things don’t add up in Sandy Hook.

    It really is that simple. Show me. I am tired of the American media not showing us anything. They want us to have all the fear but they don’t want us to see details.

    After the Gulf of Tonkin incident, Iran-Contra, Benghazi, Jessica Lynch, Pat Tillman, Watergate, WMDs, countless drills going on when a terrorist event happens, and countless other government lies — the answer is simple.

    Show us details. Otherwise, what we see is just fiction with crisis actors.

    I agree. We need to see video tape and I don’t understand why we haven’t seen any. Columbine happened when I was in school. We saw tons of video tape of that. It was everywhere. I can still remember seeing it in school. Something isn’t right about Sandy Hook. What it is — I don’t fully know. I just find everything fishy. Why destroy the school? They just spent money upgrading the security system. Don’t give me this nonsense about the school causing bad memories. Kids still go to school at Columbine.

      Judy, We dont’ want to see gore. We are alarmed we haven’t been shown EVEN ONE FRAME of video showing Lanza holding the weapon he is said to have used (the one which gun control supporters nation wide want banned). What would be more inflammatory and supportive to the gun control story than a photo of the kid with his evil black gun!? Yet we dont’ see it. This on top of multiple conflicting reports of weapons used, the strange behavior of emergency personnel and police involved, and now the VERY unusual secrecy in the school cleanup smacks of some sort of deception.

      Sandy hook reportedly had a new state of the art security and surveillance system. We should be able to see footage of him entering the school carrying the reported weapons/ammunition (a long rifle, and likely over 30 lbs of gear — also hard to imagine for a 120 lb kid to perform an any inconspicuous fashion).

      Nobody wants to see pics of bloody kids. But we do want transparency. We want to trust officials handling the case and right now that is impossible to do given nearly all details are still barred from public viewing. Why? The killer is dead, there is no trial pending. Why secrecy? I don’t want to hear about privacy issues or respect for the victims. The criminal details of this case should be public record like any other and we’ve been cheated (and likely deceived) on several levels.
