Adam Lanza, a Motive?

Police investigation into the motive behind the slaughter of 20 young children and 6 faculty members at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown by Adam Lanza has produced some answers and more questions.

They discovered the basement at the home he shared with his mother was completely blacked out.  He would practice a “shooting” video game for hours at a time.  The only way to score was to kill the victim.  His own room was described as an “isolation chamber”.

They also found that he had an obsession with Anders Behring Breivik, the Norwegian man who killed 77  Adam Lanza, Video Games, and Serial Killerspeople in July 2011, mostly teenagers on an island youth camp, after he killed 8 with a bomb in downtown Oslo outside the prime minister’s office.  It is believed he wanted to surpass the number killed by Breivk.

Sources from CBS claimed he went to the Connecticut school on December 14 because it was the “easiest target” and had the “largest cluster of people.”

Lanza also murdered his mother, Nancy.  Neighbors say the two would often go to gun ranges together to practice.

Those who knew the family said her death may have been related to fears by Lanza that her new “boyfriend” was taking his place in the family dynamics.

The investigation is ongoing.  “We’ll look at everything,” Lt. Paul Vance said. “One thing leads to another.”  He said that much of what was reported by the CBS investigator was pure speculation at this time.

Unlike Breivik, who surrendered to police, Lanza took his own life on December 14th with a handgun he brought with him.
