A man that had been released from federal prison earlier this year has been arrested by Federal agents for violation conditions of his parole.
The man was seen being interviewed by multiple media outlets presenting himself as the Uncle of Sandy Hook shooter, Adam Lanza.
In the interviews, he stated that Adam had mental illness, and was being treated with the anti psychotic drug, Fanapt.
Trouble is, this man is a known hoaxter, having been involved with multiple hoaxes involving the rich and famous, Justin Beiber being one among
This information, though unverified, was rapidly handled through the media outlets, proposing the entire mental illness issue now involved with the
gun control issue.
Amazingly, the police did state they had thus far found no evidence Adam was being treated for mental illness, let alone taking any drugs.
Follow the link above for the actual documents on the Federal arrest, as this man violated his parole by leaving the state to travel to Sandy Hook to
perpetrate the hoax.
He also video taped a lot of it, posting clips to Facebook and youtube. Very strange, as he also saw fit to attempt to involve himself with James
Holmes and the Aurora shootings.
Most interesting to me, though, is how his accusations grew to be such a huge part of the gun debate, and it was a hoax. A hoax of information is
leading a portion of the gun debate. Standing back and looking at how it evolved is impressive. Yet, how many people know he was a hoaxter?

ETA: quote from the article, no brackets on my phone:
" Riches, however, did turn up at a makeshift memorial site in
Newtown, where he identified himself to reporters as “Jonathan
Lanza,” uncle of the school shooter. As reported by the New York
Daily News and other media outlets, he told journalists that the
killer had been taking Fanapt, an antipsychotic drug prescribed
for the treatment of schizophrenia. As photographers snapped
away, Riches (seen below) dropped to a knee and feigned praying
for the young victims."
