The public is starting to gain a clearer picture of Sandy Hook killer Adam Lanza, especially after hearing the haunting words of an old babysitter. Ryan Kraft says that Lanza’s mother Sandy used to tell him to never turn his back on Adam even if he had to go to the bathroom. He says that the boy suffered from a disease in which he could not feel any form of physical pain. “[She said] to keep an eye on him at all times…to never turn my back, or even to go to the bathroom or anything like that,” he said. “Whenever we were doing something, whether it was building Legos, or playing video games, he was really focused on it. It was like he was in his own world,” he told KCBS. Richard Novia, head of security for the Newtown School District, says that Adam needed extra supervision whenever he handled in the form of equipment that could injure him without knowing it. He also says that the boy would become so withdrawn from everyone else that his mother would have to be called to bring him out of his trance. “He was very withdrawn and meek, he was one of those freshmen in very much in need of watching. he would have episodes where he would just shut down. He’d sit staring at the ground and refuse to talk to anyone,” said Novia. “If that boy would’ve burned himself, he would not have known it or felt it physically. It was my job to pay close attention to that.” Novia also says that Adam’s psychological problems were so severe, that he needed to be assigned a permanent psychologist. They always kept an eye on “who he was with, what he was doing, and who he was doing it with.” Nancy’s friends say that there was a time when Adam was very sick but he did not want his mother to come into the room with him. Instead, she would sleep on the floor and outside his door. His mother took him out of his high school at the age of 16 because she was getting involved in a multitude of disputes with other students, faculty and staff. She felt that her son was not receiving adequate attention. “Nancy had issues with school…She battled with the school district,” said Marsha Lanza, Nancy’s sister-in-law. “I’m not 100 per cent certain if it was behavior, learning disabilities, I really don’t know. But he was very, very bright. He was smart.” Another factor that authorities are investigating is the impact that his parents’ divorce had on Adam’s activities.
