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.

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:

Father Of Suspected Sandy Hook Shooter Releases "Heartbroken" Statement As Victims Are Formally Identified.

As the country still struggles to understand and make sense of the monstrous, unspeakable Sandy Hook Elementary School school shooting that took the lives of 20 children and six adults in Newtown, Connecticut Friday morning, the father and extended family of suspected shooter, 20-year-old Adam Lanza, have broken their silence.

Peter Lanza said in a statement:

"Our family is grieving along with all those who have been affected by this enormous tragedy. No words can truly express how heartbroken we are. We are in a state of disbelief and trying to find whatever answers we can."

Meanwhile, the family of Nancy Lanza, who was also found killed at another location and divorced her husband in 2009, continued:

"The family of Nancy Lanza share the grief of a community and a nation as we struggle to comprehend the tremendous loss that we all share. Our hearts and prayers are with those who share in this loss. On behalf of Nancy’s mother and siblings we reach out to the community of Newtown and express our heartfelt sorrow for the incomprehensible and profound loss of innocence that has affected so many."

Both Peter and Adam's older brother, Ryan - who was originally misidentified as the man responsible - have both been questioned by the FBI but at this point, are not considered suspects.

While authorities have informed the public that their investigators have found "very good evidence … as to how, and more importantly, why, this occurred," no further details have been released.

However, according to Nancy Lanza's neighbor, Dan Holmes, the first victim was an avid gun collector who was not only proud to own and have weapons registered in her name, but in the months leading up to the tragic, pointless events of Friday, often brought her children to several firing ranges to teach them how to shoot.

Sadly, these were the weapons that ultimately took the lives of 26 individuals, all of whom have now been identified.

Take a moment and pray for their souls, as well as their friends, family, and loved ones still struggling to come to grips with the profound, unspeakable tragedy that will hang heavily in all our hearts for a long time to come…AFTER THE JUMP.

Mother And Brother Of Sandy Hook Shooter Found Dead

This sick story has taken an even more twisted turn. If that's possible.

According to new reports Ryan Lanza, the gunman who killed 27 people at Sandy Hook Elementary School this morning, shot and killed his own mother, Nancy Lanza.

Nancy was kindergarten teacher at Sandy Hook, and believed to be the main target of the shooting.

Authorities say Ryan shot his mother inside her classroom, before he took aim at the students. The reports suggest that most of the children murdered in the school were in that classroom.

A law official has revealed further the gunman's BROTHER was found dead in a home searched in Hoboken, New Jersey.

So horrific!
