Adam Lanza DNA

A team of geneticists are reportedly set to examine Adam’s DNA in hopes that they’ll determine a genetic mutation that could’ve led him to commit his horrific shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Read on for all the details.

After Adam Lanza walked into Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dec. 14 and opened fire on the young students and heroic staff, leaving 20 children and six adults dead, the devastated community of Newtown, CT was left asking one question: Why? Though Adam left no note before taking his life, a team of geneticists at the University of Connecticut hope to be able to shed some light on this tragic mystery by studying the troubled 20-year-old’s DNA.

According to TMZ, a team of geneticists at UConn is set to examine Adam’s DNA. The department of genetics will be working hand-in-hand with the state’s Chief Medical Examiner during the study, which will investigate whether a genetic mutation was responsible for triggering Adam’s actions that day.

A representative for the medical examiner’s office says that they are not really sure what they are looking for. Results aren’t expected for several weeks.

Demi Lovato Shows Her Support For Newtown

As the community of Newtown continues to grieve their losses during this holiday season, several celebrities have stepped up to show their support. On Christmas Day, Demi Lovato posted a video of herself singing “Angels Among Us” to help benefit the victims.

The video opens with the message, “We can never imagine what the families in Newtown, CT are experiencing right now. And while there is nothing we can do to replace their loss, we can stand together and support them during this difficult time. This song is in honor of those angels we lost on December 14.”

After she sings, a message reads, “To support the families in Newtown, CT go to:”

Do you think that Adam’s DNA could be responsible for his actions, HollywoodLifers?

I cannot believe how the disinformation machine is at work here. Initial reports clearly stated he was under shrink’s care and taking meds with violence as a known side effect. This fact is now dropped and all types of prevarication is taking the place of the truth. I am not inclined to believe in conspiracy theories, but the change in the story is truly indicative that there were powers that did not like the original reports.

I’m beyond confused as to they feel as if thees reasoning behind his motives such as a genetic mutation. I really feel like there reaching for something to make the situation acceptable, something this horrific tragedy will never be. I truly believe if he was a person of a different race and if his father didn’t have money, they would not be wasting there time with these test.

Obviously, environmental and social influences are factors that led to the tragedy; however, researching about genetic mutations can provide insight into his motives. If you don’t understand biology and the reasons why researchers conduct research then do not leave an ignorant post.
