Adam Lanza Physical Condition

Adam’s withdrawn shy behavior was coupled with a condition that prevented him from feeling any physical pain, according to a new report. Read on for the troubling details.

In the wake of the devastating Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in Newtown, CT on Dec. 14 that left 20 young children and six adults dead, new details continue to emerge regarding the shooter, Adam Lanza. After learning that he had been burning himself in an attempt to “feel something,” the Daily Beast reports that Adam was stricken by a condition that stopped his body from feeling any physical pain.

Adam Lanza Couldn’t Feel Pain

Richard Novia, the Newtown school district’s then head of security, tells the website that the condition required extra supervision for Adam whenever he was around or handling equipment with which he could hurt himself without knowing. He also said he remembered Adam having spells where something psychological happened in conjunction with his condition. Richard recalled him becoming so withdrawn that Nancy Lanza, his mother, would need to be sent for.

Speaking with the Wall Street Journal, Richard addressed Adam’s worrying behavior during high school. “He was very withdrawn and meek,” he says. He added that Adam “was one of those freshmen coming in very much in need of watching,” however, “At that point in his life, he posed no threat to anyone else. We were worried about him being the victim or that he could hurt himself.”

Marsha Moskowitz, a retired school-buss driver, told the WSJ that Adam stuck out in her mind because he never smiled. “He was so quiet,” she recalled. To encourage Adam to become more social, the officials at Newtown High School steered him towards the “tech club,” a group his older brother Ryan has been successful in. Richard says that while many other students were able to thrive once in the group, Adam did not.

As we continue to learn more about Adam, we also keep the victims of his attack, their families, and the Newtown community in our thoughts and prayers.

This still doesn’t explain why. What did he have against those 26 people? I think it’s time for police to seize his journals, cpus, etc. to see if he had any motives. Son of a b****. I hope he rots in hell for what he did. I have no sympathy for him.

my thought exactly.. he whimped out and shot himself… I would loved for him to have hit the nerve in his brain that causes pain and somehow fixed it and felt allllll of it as he died, but I guess we will never know that

A sociopath does not mean they are without conscience. They often lack ‘guilt’ because they view situations differently from other people. Please do not throw the word sociopath and monster around. A lot of people suffer from issues often shown by ‘sociopaths’. That does not mean they are going to hurt people. The choice one boy made should not leave a stigma on others. Not every sociopath is a psychopath.

A young sociopath ( And I believe the meaning for a person who is characterized by asocial or antisocial behavior. Sociopathic, person without conscience. I believe the mother knew her son had huge problems.It so easy to be in Denial of your child. And lets call it like it is, a monster within waiting to come out! And it did. That is a sociopath.
