The Connecticut State Attorney’s report which pronounced Adam Lanza “solely criminally responsible” for the heinous crime at Sandy Hook Elementary also says he had “significant mental health issues,” so much so that he was “particular” about his food and its “arrangement on a plate.”
Lanza viewed each type of food in “relation to other foods on the plate” and believed “only certain types of dishware could… be used for certain foods.”
According to the report, Nancy Lanza spent time shopping for her son’s eccentric tastes. She purchased food which her son would at times cook for himself to be sure it was right.
The report also indicates that Nancy spent a lot of time doing laundry because her son “often changed clothing during the day.” These things not withstanding, Nancy “was not allowed in [her son’s] room–[not] even to clean.”
The State Attorney’s report says Lanza had an obsession with violent actions like “mass murders–in particular the April 1999 shootings at Columbine High School in Colorado.” Yet the report says Lanza did not “voice or give any [prior] indication… that he intended to commit such a crime himself.”
The guns and ammunition used in the heinous crime at Sandy Hook Elementary were legally purchased by Nancy Lanza and then stolen by her son when he decided to carry out his evil intentions. The State Attorney’s report said Lanza planned the whole thing, including his own suicide.
