MOTIVE: Adam Lanza Was Upset His Mother Was Planning to Commit Him
#1
Quote:NEWTOWN, Conn. – 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, according to a lifelong resident of the area who was familiar with the killer’s family and several of the victims’ families.

Adam Lanza, 20, targeted Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown after killing his mother early Friday because he believed she loved the school “more than she loved him,” said Joshua Flashman, 25, who grew up not far from where the shooting took place.

Flashman, a U.S. Marine, is the son of a pastor at an area church where many of the victims' families worship.

“From what I've been told, Adam was aware of her petitioning the court for conservatorship and (her) plans to have him committed," Flashman told FoxNews.com.

"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.”

A senior law enforcement official involved in the investigation confirmed that Lanza's anger at his mother over plans for “his future mental health treatment” is being looked at as a possible motive for the deadly shooting.

"He thought she just wanted to send him away. From what I understand, he was really, really angry."

Flashman was told Nancy Lanza had begun filing paperwork to get conservatorship over her troubled son, but that could not be confirmed because a court official told FoxNews.com such records are sealed.

The move would have been necessary for her to gain the legal right to commit an adult to a hospital or psychiatric facility against his will. A competency hearing had not yet been held.

Adam Lanza attended the Sandy Hook School as a boy, according to Flashman, who said Nancy Lanza had volunteered there for several years.

Two law enforcement sources said they believed Nancy Lanza had been volunteering with kindergartners at the school.

Most of Lanza's victims were first graders sources believe Nancy Lanza may have worked with last year.

Flashman said Nancy Lanza was also good friends with the school’s principal and psychologist—both of whom were killed in the shooting rampage.

"Adam Lanza believed she cared more for the children than she did for him, and the reason he probably thought this [was the fact that] she was petitioning for conservatorship and wanted to have him committed," Flashman said. "I could understand how he might perceive that—that his mom loved him less than she loved the kids, loved the school. But she did love him.

But he was a troubled kid and she probably just couldn’t take care of him by herself anymore."

The Washington Post reported that the distraught mother had considered moving with her son to Washington state, where she had found a school she thought could help him. Either way, according to Flashman, Nancy Lanza was at her wit's end.

A separate neighborhood source also told FoxNews.com that Nancy Lanza had come to the realization she could no longer handle her son alone.

She was caring for him full-time, but told friends she needed help. She was planning to have him involuntarily hospitalized, according to the source, who did not know if she had taken formal steps.


Multiple sources told FoxNews.com Adam Lanza suffered from Asperger’s syndrome , a form of autism, and other unspecified mental and emotional problems.

If true it's even more astounding that she left even a chance he could get ahold of anything dangerous.
She must have lived in a bigger fog than her son.

I'll bet she told the kid that she wished she'd flushed him after birth.

Turns out there's a bit of informal rivalry for the top "score", he was trying to beat Anders Breivik.

http://www.newser.com/story/163037/adam-...ooter.html

Quote: Adam Lanza drew motivation from Norway's most notorious mass murderer when he opened fire at Sandy Hook Elementary School, CBS News reports by way of two sources. The officials, who have been briefed on the investigation, say Lanza considered himself in competition with Anders Breivik, who bombed and gunned down 77 people in July of 2011. Wanting to out-kill Breivik, Lanza picked Sandy Hook as the "easiest target" containing the "largest cluster of people."

Picked a gun free zone for the best chance of a high score and no opposition.

I thought this too. If she really knew he was dangerous, to where she wanted him committed...she should have had her gun collection put up FAR away until she got that paperwork put through.
