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:

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.

The people of the world may stop, but capitalism doesn’t.

Whenever a tragedy happens, everything changes, unless you’re Kmart.

The retailer took a break from promoting their 15 must-have toys for the holidays on Friday to tweet their condolences (above) for the people in Newton, CT affected by the shooting earlier today, but still threw in the hashtag #fab15toys.

Because what's a heartfelt tweet without a little shameless promotion?
