Sandy Hook Shooter's Mom Was Increasingly Worried About Her Son's Well-Being

nancy lanza adam lanza mom revealed sons troubling behavior bar friends

As we all continue to wrap our heads around one of our nation's most horrifically unnecessary tragedies, we are left with the lingering question of "why?"

Why couldn't this be avoided? Why would Adam Lanza feel compelled to commit these horrible crimes against innocent children?

We're still miles away from answering those questions, but we're gaining of a better sense of how worried Adam's deceased mother Nancy Lanza was about her son's well-being.

Nancy reportedly told an unnamed bar acquaintance at a watering hole she frequented that she feared "losing" Adam and that "he was getting worse.

One bar patron revealed details from a conversation he allegedly had with Nancy about a year ago. He said:

“Nancy told me he was burning himself with a lighter. In the ankles or arms or something. It was like he was trying to feel something.”

Clearly he was a troubled young adult.

As investigators dig deeper into Adam's background and mental state, hopefully they'll uncover information allowing them to spot similarly troubled individuals to prevent these catastrophes from happening ever again.

Our thoughts and prayers continue to extend to the victims of this horrific tragedy.

    Always take commentary at face value. The media is trying to get quotes from anyone they can, old school mates, someone who shops at the same grocery store anything. I don't believe anyone credibility at this point unless the police release a statement or an autopsy saying this is true. I'm not denying the possibility that he was a self harmer, I just don't trust random "acquaintances".

    First of all, he couldn't feel pain. That has been confirmed by many outlets. Secondly, a mental health bill was just defeated in CT before the shooting. If we did more for those who need the help, things like this could probably be avoided.

    The biggest mental illness problem in the U.S. is the obsession with guns.

    Maybe if she was this worried, she should have locked up her guns so he couldn't get at them?

    you can't hardly even believe the media anymore. the mother was supposed to be a teacher at the school, she had no connection. they said his name was Ryan Lanza, its the brother who was at work in NYC. they said his father was dead in New Jersey and the father is alive and well in Conn. and thats just part of the GOSSIP the news media spreads to keep people watching and reading. You really have to read the paper in Great Btitain to have a clue whats happening.

    Whether or not this specific report is true…numerous sources have said she was concerned about her son's well being and his challenging behaviour made it impossible for her work and was a continued stresser. If that's all true…why in the world would she keeps guns in her home???

    Please stop using his name, you are glorifying the killer rather than respecting the vitcim. STOP please!

    This is so sad, did any of you see the video posted of Emilie Parker's father? It was just heartbreaking and let tears in my eyes for many minutes after watching it. It was on Perez yesterday or you can Google it.
