    Uh....Clearly this killer wasn't just autistic. Adults were afraid of him the results of his behavior and he was tiny.

    I'm standing by my statement. This killer clearly wasn't just autistic.
    "Mr. Lanza's problems were more severe than most. Three security staffers were told to carefully monitor Mr Lanza......"

    Are we reading the same article?
    "The scrawny teenager with a mop of brown hair evoked feelings of sympathy, not fear, from teachers and the few classmates who even noticed him."

    It says that they were watching him, but trying to help him get in clubs and form friendships. They knew something was wrong, and that he needed help... but I'm not sure I got the impression they were afraid of him.

    eta- sorry, I see you've already clarified. I disagree on the afraid of him part, but I agree that he obviously had more going on than High Functioning Autism. That just seems obvious IMO.

    They explain very clearly why they were monitoring him. Not because they were afraid of him, but because out of their concern for his well being.
    Since he was apparently such an unusual person, I am sure they were concerned he would be bullied.
    Just my opinion

    “Nancy told me he was burning himself with a lighter. In the ankles or arms or something,” he recalled of a conversation they had about a year ago. “It was like he was trying to feel something.”

    Uh...nope. Self mutilation is an attempt to keep suicidal feelings and emotional pain at bay by relieving psychological tension. Ten percent of self mutilators will eventually commit suicide.
