Sandy Hook Spree Killer’s Mother Was About to Commit Him to a Mental Hospital

“The gunman who slaughtered 20 children and six adults at a Connecticut elementary school may have snapped because his mother was planning to commit him to a psychiatric facility,” reports. A former U.S. Marine appears to be Fox’s primary source for the story. “From what I’ve been told, [spree killer Adam Lanza, above second row, third from the right] was aware of her petitioning the court for conservatorship and (her) plans to have him committed,” Flashman told Fox. “Adam was apparently very upset about this. He thought she just wanted to send him away. From what I understand, he was really, really angry. I think this could have been it, what set him off.” The Sun newspaper [UK] cites local plumber Peter Wlasuk, who says Adam Lanza lived in the family’s windowless basement where he played Call of Duty. FWIW.
