Report: Sandy Hook Gunman Snapped Due to Fear of Being Committed

The gunman who slaughtered twenty kids and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary reportedly snapped because his mother was adam lanzaplanning to commit him to a psychiatric institution, according to a family member.

Adam Lanza, 20, put four bullets into his mother and then headed to Sandy Hook Elementary to begin yet another slaughter, and a friend who grew up not far from Lanza says Lanza believed his mother “loved the school” more than she loved him.

“From what I’ve been told, Adam was aware of her petitioning the court for conservatorship and (her) plans to have him committed,” the friend told “Adam was apparently very upset about this. He thought she just wanted to send him away. From what I understand, he was really, really angry. I think this could have been it, what set him off.”

A law enforcement official confirmed that Lanza’s anger toward his mother was possibly over “his future mental health treatment.”

Nancy Lanza had reportedly begun filing paperwork to get conservatorship over her disturbed son, but that could not be confirmed. This would have given Lanza’s mother the legal right to commit him to a psychiatric hospital.

Adam Lanza reportedly attended Sandy Hook Elementary and Nancy Lanza volunteered there for several years. Authorities say they believe Nancy Lanza had been recently been volunteering with kindergarteners at the school.

“Adam Lanza believed she cared more for the children than she did for him, and the reason he probably thought this [was the fact that] she was petitioning for conservatorship and wanted to have him committed,”  a friend said. “I could understand how he might perceive that—that his mom loved him less than she loved the kids, loved the school. But she did love him. But he was a troubled kid and she probably just couldn’t take care of him by herself anymore.”

  1. It is a heartbreaker when you are faced w/committing a loved-one to an institution,when you see them going away.The PRIORITY is getting the HELP that’s needed. Not allowing personal emotions..guilt,fear of what others will say or you waiting on divine intervention. Step up and stand strong for those who can not for themselves that you love!Mental conflictions are not a joke these days. Too much can happen,as we see.

  2. She new when he was a child something was wrong cause its said he had problems at school she had to home school him so she knew he was sick and he should have been admitted a long time ago when he was a child the sickness just got worser and worse until not getting the medicine he needed push him to do this horrible crime rip babies your with god now gaining your wings i pray god heal your parents and one day yall be reunited i bet heaven is so beautiful rip sandy hook elementary kids (:) (; (;


  4. Sounds like another excuse for another white boy…..ijs!

  5. She and her husband should have committed this man before he became of age. I am sorry she lost her life and it is sad so many others are gone at the hands of this mentally disturbed person.

  6. The lady is dead. He killed her. Regardless of what she was trying to do to him he's still a sick bastard for taking it out on those babies and innocent teachers!! I know he's burning in hell where he belongs. All this is irrelevant stop making excuses for him! He woke up one day with cold blooded intentions to kill! Point.blank. End of story. He snapped?! No he didn't snap he was a deranged animal a sick individual! And denise its fucking ok to snap on innocent little babies and their teachers?! Fuck you! So if someone who had a so called "mental illness" snapped on your child or little cousins or nieces or nephews at their school and they all died….its fucking ok because he's mentally ill!!??? Fuck no!

  7. WHY DON'T YOU STOP? THE MOTHER WAS AS SICK AS HER CHILD. Who puts guns in the hands of a child who has brain damage? If you try to reationilize this behavior, then you are sick as well. Look at the type of guns that she had. And teaching her child to use them. What is wrong with you? Don't make excuses for sick people unless you are sick and want to cover it up. Some people say that guns don't till people. People do. That is CRAP.

  8. Sounds like she tried to save him all by herself for many years. After all, he was her baby.
    Maybe she perceive his illness as her personal failure, instead doing what was best for him years ago. So so sad. One family mental illness issue has become a overwhelming public tragedy. Where was the father in all this?

  9. Her first mistake was trying to commit him as an adult when she should have did this when he was a minor. She waited until he was an adult to make him feel unloved. That was mean and cruel. Perhaps she did love the school more than him because if she truly loved her son she would have gotten him help at an early age. Adam, was a grown man. Taking him from society to throw him into a rat cage was enough to make anyone snap. She couldn't handle him no more because she allowed the illness to spread farther and it became unbareful for her. Oh now she wants to put him away well people paid the ultimate price due to her failure to commit her child at an early age (minor).
