Sandy Hook Shooter Adam Lanza's Parents' Divorce Papers Show No Sign Of Mental Health Issues

| Filed under: R.I.P.Sad Sad


While there is no doubt that Adam Lanza, the young man behind the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting, was mentally ill, papers secured from his parents' divorce show no indication that anything was wrong… at least not four years ago.

Peter and Nancy Lanza filed for divorce in 2008 and in the documents, Peter agreed to pay Nancy increasing amounts of spousal support each year. In 2010, Peter paid almost $250,000.

But there is nothing in the papers that mentions their son's mental state.

Adam's mother did seem to know something was wrong with her child a year or so before the attack took place, as recent reports claim she talked about her fears at a bar she would occasionally patronize.

We just cannot begin to imagine what would drive someone to orchestrate such a calculated attack on the most innocent of humans.

We only pray that anyone who feels depressed, isolated, numb, angry, — even insane — seek help immediately, before something treatable and manageable turns into something violent.

    PLEASE stop using the shooters name, all you're doing is glorifying him and encourages more people to do these horrific crimes because they are seeking attention. And YOU are giving it to them. People can argue about gun control, and the states need better mental health options, but the publicity that news reporters give and gossip bloggers such as yourself give to these murders only encourages more mass murders. I know you probably don't care. But PLEASE just say "the suspect" instead of his name!

    You know, a lot of news stories aren't referring the shooter by his name or posting his picture or other information about him. Lots of news outlets are not giving this man fame. I know I've already said it but Anderson Cooper really hit the nail on the head when he said he won't be repeating the shooters name over and over. He won't be making his name more famous.
    There's no need to make him a celebrity like you and other people did with the Aurora movie theater gunman.

    You are a piece of shit…
    You're body might of gotten smaller but your head is wayyyyyy toooooo big stilll….
    A person like you who tries and profit off a sad situation like this, is simply a P.O.S

    I as a gay man, like you, fight for our rights to be gay.

    However when i see someone like you trying to profit off a horrible event like this, is simply dissipabile…
    You are disgusting…

    really? Why does this matter?

  7. 7

    Why don't you start posting the names of the children and the other victims instead of sensationalizing this asshole….We should be hanging people like you but not for being gay, for being a real low life scum bag piece of shit that helps create these massacres because people like you turn them into celebrities.

    We all should be seeking intelligent thoughts on ways to eliminate these horrific attacks.Instead we are more worried about his name being printed over and over again..It is no wonder it's happens so often in our society .Look at the disfunctional way our chidren are being subject to.Computers,violent movies,unwanted pregnancies,easy access to drugs and neglect.Children are so angry today.Why is that!! No one is getting it.You have to be 100%o
    LOVE THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    @Petluva22. ADAM LANZA'S Name NEEDS to be in Print as to make aware of Who had Committed this Atrocious Act. The media is so afraid of "Profiling" that when a crime hsppens, they give a vague description without mention of Race at all. The More we are informed, the Mmore we are able to Adapt. Not saying Adams name won't change the fact that he was the product of a broken home, he gunned down his OWN mother & he tried to setup his Own brother for his actions. The More we know about Adam, the More we can understane and TRY to prevent further Tragedies from happening….the Less we know, well…. You see the results.

    Perez, I am struck by the similarities between Nancy Lanza and Sarah Palin as far as "family values" goes. I also wonder how you became what you are? Who was nurturing you? It's strange how many think your mother is the sweetest thing, and yet you are a product of her up-bringing and one would think that she would have instilled a sense of morality in her only son.
    Here we have 3 distinct mother/son relationships with 3 distinct educational levels filling in the backgrounds. The only common theme is a lying, secretive, self-centered mother (IMHO).
