TextNEWTOWN -- Investigators have succeeded in recovering some data from one of the damaged hard drives in a computer used by Adam Lanza and have subpoenaed computers of people they believe were in contact with the Sandy Hook mass murderer, a law enforcement source said Friday. Another smashed hard drive still is being reconstructed by technicians with the U.S. Department of Defense, the source said.





Investigators also have concluded that Adam Lanza's mother did not restrict his access to the Bushmaster rifle and three other guns he took to Sandy Hook school to embark on his killing spree, according to another law enforcement source familiar with the investigation.



n addition to the high-powered rifle that Lanza wielded to blast his way into the school, the two handguns he was carrying and a shotgun police found in the trunk of the car he drove, there was one other weapon in the Lanza house -- an "old Springfield rifle" -- one of the law enforcement sources told Hearst Connecticut Newspapers.

I'm sure this is close to your heart
It would be fascinating to see into Lanza's thoughts on the lead up to the killings
Thanks for the update

So Lanza was forward thinking enough to disassemble his hard drives and smash the platters up in an attempt to cover his tracks but he wasn't forward thinking enough to zero them first? What have they found exactly? Cookies for youporn?

I will be very interested if the police admit discovering that he posted a youtube video on Dec 13 under the name trolley rulle. If that is true this gets very ugly........

Would you happen to have a link to this video? Or the title of it? Thanks.

The video is long gone but here is an article that explains what was posted.

www.examiner.com...




"We are those that are willing to die or kill to end the mind rape of our children. The war for your brain has begun!"





The video contains the following eerie message: "All she wanted was this picture perfect life. I guess me being raped was not in her idyllic plans. F__k her. I choose to go level 121 and kill Rulle. I will swing the sword of destruction and live forever! I am Adam Lanza. People hate me. I will be immortal."

Why the DOD? Isn't there even one law enforcement agency that could handle this?


"How Nancy Lanza's weapons were stored is of interest to state lawmakers as they draft gun-control proposals in the aftermath..."

This indicates that will try to force proper gun storage laws down your throat. Which will be enforced with home inspections.


"In addition to the high-powered rifle that Lanza wielded to blast his way into the school, the two handguns he was carrying and a shotgun police found in the trunk of the car he drove, there was one other weapon in the Lanza house -- an "old Springfield rifle"..."

What happened to the other weapons that they claimed to have found?

www.cbsnews.com...
The Associated Press reports a Henry repeating rifle, an Enfield rifle ... were recovered.


"There is a lot of evidence that was recovered, but the question is, what does it tell us?" said one law enforcement source. "This is not a who-done-it."

You WILL drink the 'Adam Lanza did it' kool-aid.

Really? more of this nonsense?

The crap i'm seeing in here is wrong on so many levels.....where do i begin?

1 - HDDs that are SO damaged that data recovery can only be accomplished by DOD....

this is bulls**t for a number of reasons...the first of which is the fact that HDDs are VERY robust, and VERY hard to damage with anything short of a pick axe, sledgehammer, or a small explosive of some sort.....secondly, any tech competent in computer forensics could get data off a damaged drive, and could reconstruct damaged data with off the shelf software that any state lab should have....this is just over-dramatized nonsense, to fool people who know nothing about such things into thinking that lanza was some kind of devious criminal genius...a homicidal mastermind, rather than a guy who was on psychiatric drugs, that caused a psychotic break...and even that is speculative, because the official report from the state police has not yet been released.


2 - Allegations of unrestricted access to firearms, for the alleged shooter

This is also VERY hard to believe...a "law enforcement source familiar with the investigation"..could they possibly be any more vague?....i sense something here was made up...OH! that's it..make some bulls**t up, say a "law enforcement source familiar with the investigation" said it, and nobody will question it.... How would this anonymous law enforcement insider know that this was the case? are they in some way related to the family, were they in a relationship with Nancy Lanza? ....if not, then i doubt they would have any way of knowing that this was the case....more speculation... and so what if he had access to arms? in america we have that right..unless he has proven himself a danger to those around him, there is no reason to restrict one's access to arms....this is just more nonsense to further demonize access to "omg scary black guns", that are functionally identical to their non-scary wood furnished counterparts...don't buy into the hype...

Because i just HAFTA quote this whole thing again for it's stupidity value..


3 - in addition to the high-powered rifle that Lanza wielded to blast his way into the school, the two handguns he was carrying and a shotgun police found in the trunk of the car he drove, there was one other weapon in the Lanza house -- an "old Springfield rifle" -- one of the law enforcement sources told Hearst Connecticut Newspapers.

High powered rifle?....don't make me laugh.... a 30-06 that you would use to hunt deer is a more powerful round...a rifled slug from a shotgun is a more powerful round....the 5.56/.233 in the bushmaster is a 22 on steroids....the 5.56, which is the military version of the round, it is simply a more powerful powder load, for greater muzzle velocity...this round is classified as an "intermediate power cartridge" by both the U.S. military, and i believe NATO, as well...calling the bushmaster a "high-powered rifle" is hyperbole, and shows a great ignorance on the part of the author, and anyone who would quote it as a factual statement.. Then there's this gem about how he used the bushmaster in the school, and left the shotgun in the trunk, which we know is a falsehood, because we saw the footage of them removing BOTH the "bushmaster" AR-15, AND the saiga-12 shotgun from the trunk of the car...that says to anyone with half a brain, that really, neither of them could have been used in the shooting....again, more bulls**t to demonize the "scary black guns". and who cares what other guns were in the house? unless they were used, there's no point in mentioning them...


4 - "Just up dating some important information for people one here to clear up what was speculated."

So you aim to clear up speculation with MORE speculation?...using an article, or articles loaded with speculative crap, half truths, disinformation, and sensationalist bulls**t language? I applaud your apparent desire to do the right thing here, but either you really think this crap is true, or you're here to deliberately misinform us....

1) I don't buy the hard drive crap either.......also ...........the police will NOT be telling the public if he used any drugs it is against the law.

2) Why does the MSM continue to conspire to not tell the truth about this one simple fact of this tragedy???? Adam Lanza stole these weapons from his mother PERIOD.

3) If you have not seen the newest video from the trunk I suggest you go look at it in the 2 rifles in the trunk thread. It shows IMO no other rifle only a large magazine taken out of the shot gun.

4) It looked to me like the OP was just showing an article that indicates they got some info from the drive. I see nothing wrong with the fact that the OP or anyone else here posts articles and let's the reader decide if they are true or not. I guess we will see if this is just speculation the next few days waiting for the police to release another statement confirming this.

Sounds fake. This is propped "evidence" to sell to us that lanza is what they want us to think he is.

I seriously don't believe anything from these people anymore. No. Not after No WMD in iraq and ndaa.

would you mind linking me to this video you're talking about? the original news chopper footage, clearly shows the officer remove a long gun from the trunk, and hand it to a forensic tech...then he takes another long gun out, and hands it to another forensic tech...its hard to see BOTH hand offs, but if you pay close attention, you can see it...2 forensic techs, each with a long gun from the trunk...

In addition to that..i don't know that i buy the whole "its illegal to disclose what drugs he was on" thing....if this were the case, we would not have known what drugs any of the other MSM superstar shooters was on..

I'll be damned if I don't get sucked into every last Newtown thread. So if Lanza was seeking "immortality" for his alleged actions, why would he destroy his computer? What sense does that make? I'm still not buying this lone gunman story AT ALL.

yeah, that little 40 second clip leaves out all the good parts....

there was a longer cut of that footage up on youtube, in HD, and you could clearly see that one guy takes the saiga shotgun you see the LEO clearing earlier, and another guy reaches in, and takes ANOTHER long gun, and has it in his right hand...because it's so dark, it's hard to make out...but the guy carrying the second long gun is to the left (towards top of frame) of the man, who has all the light on him, carrying the shotgun..
