    Oh no Izzy, not at all, I'm sorry you thought that. My comment landed at random and wasn't directed at you at all or anyone in particular. I'm just bothered that the media refers to him as the shooter when in fact he is a killer. Sorry you thought that I was directing my frustration at you.

    My questions. Did the shooter have any connection to the school? Previous attendance there, lived nearby, have friends whose children went there or who taught there? Previous problems there?

    Any reports of him leaving a letter or note about the shootings?

    Why the Ele school?
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    I have gone through numerous 'motive' scenarios, supported only by the flimsy and often erroneous reporting. This is a very interesting case. I speculate that the motive, is very child-like. E.g. AL blames his current condition, on his early years at this school; it is their fault that he has limitations. If teachers had recognized his special needs, he could have been like his brother. And this child-like motive, is in sharp contrast to the well organized, methodical planning & plotting, designed to exact the most painful degree of revenge.

    OMG!! OMG!! I just remembered!!! There was a link on the last thread! I believe teacher Victoria Soto's webpage (for the school??) announced the plans for the children to make Gingerbread houses that morning and Mr. Murphy was her aide in the classroom. I need to go find it, but could Adam have seen this and knew exactly where Mrs. Murphy would be??

    Here is an article. I won't quote it because I'm not sure what is accurate but it appears the aunt made the statement. A picture of NL is at the link.

    I am not sure he ever even attended that school. His mother was not a teacher there.
    Just my opinion

    I've been reading the Twitter account and personal blog of one of the men who is being widely quoted by media about his encounter/acquaintance with NL. He's rightfully upset that the media is pillaging his site and pulling quotes mish-mash. Of course, he did choose to share in public forums about her.

    However, he notes that he has friends who evidently knew her well and that there's evidently a lot that went on at home between NL and AL that isn't publicly known yet.

    Pretty interesting. And, a good reminder that we haven't even begun to get a glimpse of what led up to this horror.

    ""Construction is set for Friday morning December 14th at 9:45 in our classroom and should last for about an hour and a half. The more helping hands we have, the smoother the project goes. So if any of you moms or dads can spare the time, we could really use you! The gingerbread houses are going to be fragile until the icing sets, so I will keep them over the weekend to let everything harden. ""

He could be less than two years removed from attending school if he has just turned 20. Do we have a birth date for Adam?

    Obviously the High School was not the target of his anger/issues, but I find it interesting that he was removed and the returned to school.
    Adam Lanza was born on April 22, 1992.

    Let's not forget that some very serious conditions such as schizophrenia start to manifest themselves in males during young adulthood. AL was 20 so perhaps this was the case.

    The news is inferring that the CT State Police have some solid leads as to what may have been a motivator.

    Bet AL watched a lot of violent video games....
