Peter Lanza, father of the Sandy Hook Elementary shooter Adam Lanza, has spoken out about his son’s horrific actions. The father reveals he wishes his son had never been born and that he does not go ‘a single hour’ without thinking about the victims and their families.
In a revealing interview, Adam Lanza‘s father opens up about the tragic Sandy Hook Elementary shooting and how he believes his son was ‘evil.’
Adam Lanza’s Father Wishes He Was Never Born
It’s been just over a year since 20-year-old Adam Lanza killed his mother and then opened fire inside her place of work, Sandy Hook Elementary School, killing twenty children and six adults. Now, Adam’s father Peter Lanza has decided to open up about his son’s actions and how his life has been affected.
“Any variation on what I did and how my relationship was had to be good, because no outcome could be worse,” Peter said. “You can’t get any more evil. How much do I beat up on myself about the fact that he’s my son? A lot.”
Peter admits that he had not seen his son Adam for at least two years before the shooting.
Peter Warns Parents This Could Happen To Anyone
Peter is also using the opportunity to warn parents that scary and dangerous situations like this could happen to anyone. Peter reveals that his ex-wife Nancy, Adam’s mother and first victim, was not afraid of her son despite previous reports.
“[Nancy] never confided to her sister or best friend about being afraid of him,” Peter shared. “She slept with her bedroom door unlocked, and she kept guns in the house, which she would not have done if she were frightened.”
Despite his son’s actions, Peter says that the public has been very supportive of him and his family and he has even received forgiveness from victims families. During his interview, Peter showed the journalist interviewing his attic which was filled with boxed that he calls “the stuff.” The boxes contain supportive cards, letters, gifts, handmade crosses, and many more items that Peter and his family has received since the shooting.
