The video of the home was strange to me. The house was odd inside. Very clean in the main living quarters, very unkempt everywhere else. I guess at
times, I kept my home like that in case someone came over, but usually, when I do the housework, I clean my bedroom and bathrooms, too.
The basement and all other rooms looed like storage areas. Adam's bedroom was upstairs, and we were led to believe it was downstairs. Downstairs
looked like his older brothers' bedroom.
The one thing I found odd was the lack of artwork, paintings, and real photo's, family photo's, in the house. There were three photos in the
livingroom, two old, childhood photos of Adam and his brother, and one of his brother, obviously at graduation. In one upstairs room, was one more old
photo. In Nancy's room, on her dresser, were two old childhod photos, and one of a little girl? I found it strangely out of place. It caught my
In the office, there was the common seen world map, in black and gold, there was a cermic piece on one wall by the entry way, and that was about it.
No clocks? No kitchen artwork? Nothing in the formal or casual dining? The lack of stuff on the walls struck me as very sanitary. Almost 'model home'
The home didn't look like a home, it looked like a house. Contrived. Sorry to say that. It didn't look loved, or lived in. It didn't look 'homey'.
Women, in particular, will know what I mean.
The cardboard storage boxes struck me as odd. Most women I know would use plastic bins. Maybe it's just me, but I associate those cardboard boxes with
males, men would go for those, for file storage. A woman would just not typically buy those to store things in her home. The house was literally
brimming with them.
The house, in more ways than one, struck me as the way a man would keep one, not a woman. Even the kitchen, very stale and plain. The only personality
to even speak of was the kitchen island, which was very sterile. Some things there, with a box of tissues tucked neatly along one side.
My parents divorced, and this was much how my dad kept his house. Clean in the living area, very sterile and uncluttered, easy to clean, and no
personality, but, he had lots of artwork on the walls.
Her bathroom stood out the most contrived to me. The clothing drying rack in the garden tub, with lots and lots of her 'unmentionables' in there to
dry. The entire house came across to me as something a bunch of men did, set up, then, when they got to her room, they set it up in a stereotypical
'she would have all this in the bathroom' kind of thing.
Try as I might, I just could not imagine someone, anyone, living in that home. It just wasn't lived in. It wasn't a 'living' space. For as messy as it
was in some ways, the toioets, sinks, and tubs, all were immaculate. Even in the basement where Adam allegedly 'hid' for the last two months of his
His bedroom, in itself, was odd. His blothes were all the same color. No shoes or personal belongings in the room. The alleged nightstand photo with
the school ID and valet key ends up being inside a bathroom cabinet. There is nothing on the walls, whete are these shooting targets, the serial
killer spreadsheet? The video games in the basement are in his brothers room, and those were obviously laid out for photography purposes in the second
Things like that didn't mesh. The kitchen itself, was too 'put together', again, like a model house. In particular, the silverware drawer. Now, I have
a silverware compartment, and keep my silverware seperated. All spoons here, forks there, etc. But, I don't stack my spoons in 4 seperate stacks. I
drop them in the rectangle for spoons, and move on. Even just the action of opening that drawer for a spoon would send them tumbling!
So, there it is. Watch the house video, and see if it makes you feel the same.
I also question why all of the exterior doors were kicked or broken IN, namely, the front entryway. You can clearly see leaves and debris tracked in,
into the downstairs powder room entry, and then straight up the stairs to Nancy Lanza's bedroom. It looked like tracks from more than one person. From
several. One person could not have had enough leaves and debris on their feet to track as wide on the steps, nor as much in the downstairs area, as
you see. They would have had to literally run in circles, and gone up and down the stairs in different paths each time.
If it was 'first responders', why be so careless as to track all of that debris into a crime scene?
So many odd things about that house. So many.But especially why, why, would first responders kick in every door? The videographer talks, but too soft
for me to hear.

P.S. I also noticed, the first time they showed the phone, it had a message light flashing, and it showed 50 messages. For someone who didn't know
many people, and kept to themselves, that's a LOT of messages. her cellphone was also photo'd on the footstool in the livingroom, her purse was in the
kitchen on top of some bottled drinks, I believe, as if she came home and dropped off stuff in the kitchen, then went to the livingroom to relax, then
went to bed.
The thing about the phone, in the still photos of the crime scene, which appeared to be being taken at the same time the video was being made, there
was a stack of sticky notes under the handset of the phone. That struck me as odd. They were not there in the video, why for the still? That was so
