Let me start off by stating that this is a thread about FACTS.
I am not interested in the output of the active conspiracy-theory mill, which churns out tons of ludicrous claims.
Those who have followed my posts know that I take this topic seriously.
I just want the truth

Now, to the individuals here (you know who you are), who might otherwise start-in with the insta-comments 90 seconds after this thread is posted:

Look, inconsistencies aside, I know the story that the media has presented is very plausible. In fact, it's a fairly simple
A young man in an idyllic Connecticut exurb of NYC, son of divorced parents, suffering from the murky comorbidity of an Autism Spectrum Disorder and a
slew of various neuroses, develops what we are told was “a fascination with mass-murder”.
His murderous fascination soon leads to him becoming obsessed with chimpanzees as well as mastering the arcane skills required to edit all of the
Wikipedia articles on school-shootings.
By this time, his severe mental malfunctions led to the crystallization of a plan; a plan which would—once set into motion—would lead
inexorably to his demise, immediately succeeding the tragic deaths of his mother, six educators, and 20 first-graders at his boyhood school.
He does this after having spent years in utter seclusion. Black garbage-bags taped over his windows, blocking out the light. Henceforth his only
communication will be to his own, long-suffering mother. And even then—and though sharing a house—it is only via … email.
Nancy Lanza for her part was suffering from multiple-sclerosis, and this native New Hampshirite—at a loss for what to do in response to Adam's
increasingly bizarre behavior—fell back on her rural Republican roots:
She purchased him an arsenal of firearms.
Thus armed, Lanza began undertaking a strict training regiment consisting of:
- honing his imminent mass-murder capabilities by playing decade-old, ‘M-For-Mature’ rated video games on his 19 inch classic color television,
and first generation XBox.
- practicing yogic, mind-over-matter Discordian mental exercises in order to overcome his debilitating phobia of door-knobs, cats, gas-operated lawn
equipment, and metal objects.
- keeping in shape by playing Dance Dance Revolution for 8-10 hours at a clip, each weekend at the AMC16
Theater in Danbury.
On an unseasonably warm 34°F day in mid-December of 2012, Adam Lanza did the unthinkable, and then put a bullet into the back of his own head
(according to the police), or into his own mouth (according to the Chief Medical Examiner's office).
