Answers are blurry at best. Even police do not have a clear cut motive for Lanza’s horrific act, except for maybe that Adam Lanza reportedly is mentally disturb.
Product of a broken home, his father, a career driven Vice President tax official with the office of Ernest and Young and a mother, who allegedly was very strict with Adam, who still lived with her.
What possessed Adam Lanza to kill 20 young, innocent children without a possible cause? It will take some time before law officials will have the answers to this and many other pertinent questions about the deadly and senseless shooting.
Adam reportedly stole the guns he used during his killing spree from him mother. The young man had no problems getting into the school that normally has tight security, because his mother, who he shot dead as well, worked for the school.
The Sandy Hook Elementary school shooting is the second worst shooting incident in the United States after Virginia Tech where 32 people were shot to death in 2007.
Yet, considering that ages of the children robbed from their lives so very young, Sandy Hook school shooting may well be the worst.
Even President Barack Obama could not withhold tears when he addressed the nation earlier to day asking Americans to pray for the victims.
Adam Lanza had killing in mind, that much is sure. He started on his blood path killing his 52 year old mother Nancy by shooting her in the face.
Then he stole her car and drove to the school. Once there he went to work on his diabolical plan systematically. First he shot the headmaster Dawn Hochsprung (47), then he killed the school psychologist.
Wearing a bulletproof vest, black military clothes and a mask, Adam Lanza started spraying bullets throughout the school. Reportedly, he shot more than 100 bullets.
Most of the young victims were find in just two classrooms. Despite the horrific crime, sounds of jubilee were heard when rescues discovered one class of 15 students unharmed, hiding in a huge closet, thanks to their brave teacher who told them to go in the closet and stay quiet.
US Media paints Adam Lanza as someone born with autism. An old classmate of Lanza describes him as a loner, the nervous type that usually stayed away from other students but with a gifted mind, standing far above the other students when it came to intelligence.
Newtown, located about 85 miles from New York is by American standards a small town with just 27,000 residents. Just a few years ago, the ‘town’ was nominated as being the safest place in the United States to live and work.
Until this morning only one murdered occurred in Newtown over the past 10 years. That statistic has been shattered for ever; instead Newtown is now drenched in innocent blood.
