What was ... Adam's relationship ...to Ryan?
The media would like to have us believe that Ryan and Adam were basically estranged, but they do seem to have had a closer relationship than is let
First remember the discovery on Ryan's ID on Adam's body. This implies close contact at some recent time in the past.
State police sources told The Courant that Lanza had his brother Ryan Lanza’s identification, which initially led to confusion about his identity,
And then there were the reports that said that BOTH brothers were at the scene:
...witnesses said a handcuffed man, dressed in camouflage was led out of a nearby woods by officers who reported to the shooting. The individual is
Lanza’s younger brother, according to the Associated Press.
2:15 p.m. CST -- The Associated Press reports: A law enforcement official says the suspect in the Connecticut school shootings is 24-year-old Ryan
Lanza and that his younger brother is being held for questioning as a possible second shooter.
Sunday Mirror (London, England)
Mother-of-one Kathryn Urso said her son described Lanza as a Goth who was very thin and "remote". She said: "He wore black clothing and his face
was white. He and his brother
hung around with a weird little gang
Another former school friend, Jamie Crespo, 19, said: ‘He(Adam) used to hang with the freaks, guys who dressed in trench coats.’
To help Mr. Lanza become more socially adept, school officials directed him to a "tech club," a broadcast class that filmed school events ...his
older brother, Ryan, had done well in the same group
And there was this comment by a poster who claimed to have seen Ryan Lanza's Facebook page before they took it down. It doesn't sound like he was
entirely divorced from his brother's way of life:
What they found played into all of the stereotypes. Ryan Lanza is a loner. He wears a trenchcoat
. He plays violent video games. He listens to
heavy metal. He’s depressed. He got jilted by a girl. His Twitter handle contained a curse word. He has a misogynist streak—three days ago he
tweeted, “amber’s a bitch slut.” He was deeply depressed, tweeting recently, “I would actually love if the world ended in 2 weeks.” Perhaps
most chillingly, on the morning of the shooting, he tweeted, “game day fellas
Though of skeptics might suggest this was a hoax site or perhaps belonged to a totally different Ryan Lanza.
--Pia Conte, 47, who lives in the neighborhood and has two sons in their 20s, said Lanza and his girlfriend
kept to themselves.
Adam Lanza had a girlfriend? Now that would be interesting, as he is being painted as such a loner.
