Nancy Lanza, the mother of suspected school shooter Adam, was believed to have been killed in her classroom. But updates in the investigation say she was found dead at her son’s residence — she wasn’t even a teacher at the school. So horrible.
After Adam Lanza was identified as the shooter responsible for the horrific shooting massacre at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT on Dec. 14, reports presumed that his mother, Nancy Lanza had been shot and killed in her classroom. However, CNN reports that Nancy was, in fact, found dead in Adam’s residence in Newtown and she wasn’t even a staff member at the school.
CNN’s Susan Candiotti reported that investigators confirmed to her that Nancy was found at the residence. “Earlier we had information that she was found in the classroom. However, now I’m being told that in fact her body was found at the suspect’s residence,” Susan reported. “We don’t know whether she also lived there. We also don’t know the timeline – when was she killed? Was she killed before the shooting began at the school? These are the things that authorities are still trying to piece together.”
Many questions still remain in this tragic situation, as investigators are still working to process the scene.
President Obama’s Address To A Saddened Country
Earlier in the day, President Barack Obama addressed a shaken and frightened nation, speaking not as a politician, but as a fellow parent. Overcome with his own grief, he had to take a moment to regain his composure and wipe tears from his eyes. “Tonight Michelle and I will do what I know every parent in America will do, we will hug our children a little tighter. And we will tell them that we love them,” he said.
Our thoughts remain with the victims lost, their suffering families, and the shaken community of Newtown, CT.
