On Dec. 14, Adam arrived at the Sandy Hook Elementary School and shot dead 20 children and six adults. Since then, everyone has asked the same question: why did he do it? His parent’s attorney reveals that he did not take their divorce well — did this have something to do with his actions?
Adam Lanza made global news when he killed 26 people in the second worst school shooting in American history. Adam had killed his mother Nancy Lanza in her sleep before he arrived at the Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dec. 14, and after the massacre in the Newtown, CT, he took his own life. As the victims of the people who were killed mourn, everyone is asking why he would take the lives of little children? In a shocking new report, Adam’s parents’ divorce lawyer Paula Levy said the Lanza’s went “out of their way to accommodate him” during their divorce, but was it enough?
Cause For The Shooting
Adam opened fire in the Sandy Hook school on Dec. 14, killing six adults and 20 innocent children. Adam had been taught how to shoot by his mother, whom he also tragically killed. As the funerals for the victims begin, now more than ever, people want answers. Why did he do this?
As previously reported by HollywoodLife.com, Adam is said to have suffered from Asperger’s syndrome which is a mild form of Autism. And Paula says that this was something his mother helped him with. “They worked together about it,” Paula told The Associated Press. “The mom, Nancy, pretty much said she was going to take care of him and be there as much as he needed her, even long-term.”
So why would he kill her?
His Parents Separation
Adam, 20, was 17-years-old when his parents separated, and Paula believes that this had a profound effect on him. “The only two things I remember them saying is that she really didn’t like to leave him alone and I know they went out of their way to accommodate him,” thr divorce mediator says.
Nancy and Peter Lanza separated in 2009 and Peter has since remarried. In a statement following the massacre, Peter said “No words can truly express how heartbroken we are. We are in a state of disbelief and trying to find whatever answers we can.”
What do YOU think HollywoodLifers? Do you think we will ever know why Adam committed the massacre?
