Another neighbor did know Adam Lanza. Megan, who declined to give her last name, was a classmate of the shooter from kindergarten through middle
school. "He wasn't like a weird kid as a child," Megan told Yahoo News. "He was just quiet. He didn't put off a friendly vibe." But she said he was
one of the smartest students in school. "He was always participating in class and everything," Megan said. But she said her former classmate, with
whom she rode the school bus, sort of vanished after their junior high years. "He almost fell off the radar in middle school," Megan told Yahoo News.
The shooter's aunt, Marsha Lanza, told ABC News that his mother pulled him out of Newtown public schools because of a dispute over the district's plan
for her son. "She mentioned she wound up home-schooling him because she battled with the school district," the aunt told ABC News. Police said Adam
Lanza, dressed in all black, was armed with two handguns and a semi-automatic Bushmaster .223 rifle when he barged into the school. [RELATED: Obama to
visit Connecticut families] Dr. Carver, the medical examiner, said it appears that all the children were gunned down by the military-style rifle.
Authorities said all the weapons were legally owned and registered by Nancy Lanza, the shooter's mother. Newtown school superintendent Janet Robinson
told reporters Saturday that Nancy Lanza had no connection to the Sandy Hook school, despite initial reports Lanza was on the faculty or a substitute
teacher there. "I'm sickened that this mass murder was done with legal guns," said Strocchia, the neighbor. "I'd like to find out why. Why did she
have guns?" But acquaintances of Nancy Lanza told The New York Times that the 52-year-old mother was a big fan of guns. "She had several different
guns," Dan Holmes told the newspaper. "I don't know how many. She would go target shooting with her kids." Reports that Adam Lanza may have suffered
from a personality disorder are being supported by people who knew the mother to have a troubled son. According to the Times story, a friend said
Nancy Lanza was, "handling a very difficult situation with uncommon grace." Investigators revealed on Saturday that evidence found in the Lanza
residence might provide a possible motive for the massacre. State police spokesman Lt. Paul Vance declined to provide specifics about the evidence but
said, "we're hopeful it will paint a complete picture." Neighbors like Strocchia are searching for answers too. However, he said, said he harbors no
anger. "I'm thankful my children are alive," he said. "I have compassion and mercy. There was something wrong with him."
Seriously? oh and then in the same post they say he killed his mother before he left. I thought the mother was still alive? I'm very confused...
Just seems odd, another "brightly" educated guy goes on a mass homicide. I have a feeling they wanna make anyone who is smart just be led off to go
kill people. Its like they want us to be stupid.
