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.
Rachel D’Avino‘s longtime boyfriend Anthony Cerritelli asked her parents to marry her on December 12. He planned to propose on Christmas Eve. Unfortunately just two days later, on Dec. 14, Rachel, 29, was gunned down by Adam Lanza in a horrific elementary school shooting.
Adam Lanza didn’t just want to hurt others — he also targeted himself. The 20-year-old was reportedly burning his ankles and arms in the days leading up to the horrible shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, which took the lives of 20 children and six adults.
President Barack Obama visited the community of Newtown, Connecticut on Dec. 16, where he promised to make changes in our country after 26 people, including 20 children, were tragically killed in a mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dec. 14.
Adam Lanza, 20, blasted his way into Sandy Hook Elementary School at around 9:30AM on Dec. 14, where he killed 20 children and six adults. Gov. Dannel Malloy said Adam shot himself as first responders entered the building, but had a lot of ammo on him when his body was found. They believe he would have continued to shoot and kill whoever crossed his path. How horrific.
The New York City Children’s Chorus opened the Dec. 15 episode of Saturday Night Live by singing “Silent Night,” a clear departure from SNL’s usual comedy routine-type opening. The song was performed in tribute to the 20 children and six adults who were shot and killed by Adam Lanza, 20, on Dec. 14 at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
