The Sandy Hook Elementary School shooter had sketched disturbing images of a mother and child being gruesomely killed weeks before the Newtown massacre, according to emails from his mother Nancy Lanza. Read on for more shocking details.
Adam Lanza, the 20-year-old gunman behind the tragic Dec. 14 shooting in Newtown, Conn., had sketched gruesome drawings of children being murdered — and his mom Nancy Lanza found the disturbing images in his room two weeks before the shooting, according to emails sent by Nancy to a friend.
In an email exchange between Nancy and a friend of her Marvin LaFontaine, obtained by the New York Daily News, the single mother revealed her fears that her youngest son Adam had inherited a genetic disorder — a form of autism called Asperger’s syndrome.

She had also discovered disturbing images in her son’s room, according to the emails, and they were pictures that Adam himself had apparently drawn, Marvin told the New York Daily News.
“One (drawing) had a woman clutching a religious item, like rosary beads, and holding a child, and she was getting all shot up in the back with blood flying everywhere,” Marvin said. “Nancy was disturbed, really disturbed, but didn’t confront him. She wanted to think it over.”
Just two weeks later, Adam embarked on a deadly shooting rampage at Sandy Hook Elementary School, which killed 20 children and six adults. He also shot and killed his own mother in her bed.

Marvin also said that Adam had been the target of relentless bullying, which may have led to his violent shooting rampage on Dec. 14.
“Nancy told me he was being picked on at school. That they were just torturing him,” Marvin said. “Adam was an easy target. He was quiet and he would never fight back. “I think Adam felt betrayed by the school and this was his act of revenge.”
