Former Babysitter: Lanza Mother Told Me 'Never Turn My Back'


According to a former babysitter for Newtown, Connecticut mass murderer Adam Lanza, Nancy Lanza, Adam’s mom, told him “to keep an eye on him at all times … to never turn my back, or even to go to the bathroom or anything like that.”

The babysitter, Ryan Kraft, now lives in Southern California. According to Kraft, “Whenever we were doing something, whether it was building Legos, or playing video games, he was really focused on it. It was like he was in his own world.” Kraft was a teenager and Lanza was 9 or 10 years old when he babysat for him.

This is just the latest indicator that Lanza clearly had mental instability problems, and that his family knew about it. Their failure to take proper measures had tragic consequences for the children of Sandy Hook Elementary School, as well as for Nancy Lanza.
