On Friday, December 14th, 2012, an event of horrific proportions took place at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut:  More than two dozen people were reported to have been slain by a lone gunman inside of Sandy Hook Elementary School.  Twenty of the victims are reported to have been children.  The suspected shooter is said to be 20-year-old Adam Lanza, a shy and reclusive young man whom the media is reporting suffered from obsessive compulsive disorder, personality disorder as well as Asperger's Syndrome (autism).  Adam was said to have been armed with as many as five weapons as well as a bullet-proof vest at the time when the murder took place.  Reports have surfaced from local police in which we are told that after opening fire and killing dozens of people, Adam Lanza then turned one of those guns on himself in an apparent murder/suicide.
     In the wake of this event, some very confusing details have surfaced in regards to the mainstream media's reports concerning the true nature of the events which took place inside the school.  The purpose of this write-up is merely to ask some very basic questions, as the media reports which have surfaced, when put together, seem to paint a very confusing picture.  
     This article is in NO WAY meant to confirm nor deny any of the reports coming forward.  It is merely meant as a forum for asking some deeper questions.  The scope of this tragedy is immeasurable, and we must all mourn deeply for the deaths of these innocent victims.  

Media reports on multiple suspects apprehended at the scene

The vast majority of mainstream media reports have stated that Adam Lanza acted alone in committing this tragedy.

However, several mainstream sources have reported that a second suspect was apprehended at the scene.

"A second man wearing camouflage trousers was seen being handcuffed. One witness described him shouting: “I didn’t do it.”

--from the UK Telegraph HERE

This was confirmed by a child inside the school:  

"One nine-year-old boy said: “I was in the gym. We heard lots of bangs and we thought it was the custodian knocking stuff down. Then we heard screaming. Then police came in and said, 'Is he in here?’ Then they ran out and we went to the closet in the gym and hid. Then we ran to the fire house and saw a guy on the floor in handcuffs. We were just happy to be alive.”

Live video footage of the child being interviewed can be seen HERE.
From CBS News HERE

"CBS News reports that a potential second suspect was in custody and that SWAT was investigating the home of the suspect. It was not known if that alleged second suspect fired any of the shots in the massacre.

A witness tells WFSB-TV that a second man was taken out of the woods in handcuffs wearing a black jacket and camouflage pants and telling parents on the scene, “I did not do it.”

A local news reporter live on the scene also made the statement that he witnessed a man in handcuffs being taken into custody.

So here we have a child inside the school, a local news reporter on the scene, and an unidentified witness all confirming having seen a second suspect in handcuffs.

Perhaps the most revealing angle of this concerns live aerial footage captured of police officers running in pursuit of a suspect through the woods just outside of Sandy Hook Elementary School.  In the footage, you will see a group of officers gathered around in a circle in the woods surrounding what appears to be an apprehended suspect.  If this is the case, then it appears as though there may be as many as THREE individuals involved in this affair:  The suspect apprehended in the parking lot, the suspect apprehended in the woods, and Adam Lanza, whom we are told shot and killed himself inside the school.  The video footage can be viewed HERE and HERE.  *Note:  It is recommended that you mute the sound when watching this video, as there is a rather irksome 'beeping' sound that accompanies the footage (perhaps something to do with the fact that it was recorded live from a helicopter).

The most important question that must be asked here is this:  Who are these additional suspects, and why, after being taken from the scene in handcuffs, are we told nothing more about them?

Police Scanners capture live feed of multiple suspects apprehended

Perhaps even more revealing than the helicopter video footage is live police scanner audio captured and uploaded onto the internet.  In this audio, the following conversation can be heard taking place between multiple officers:

Officer 1 (dispatch): 

"I have reports that the teacher saw two shadows running past the building, past the gym, which would be rear."

Officer 2 (in pursuit):

"Ya we got 'em."

"They're comin' at me (inaudible).  Comin' up the driveway, left side!"

"(Inaudible) I got 'em proned out." 

:  'Proned out' refers to an apprehended suspect laying face down on the ground

The live feed is available HERE.  The audio in question begins at :48 and ends at 1:34.

This live police scanner feed proves, unequivocally, that multiple suspects were apprehended ON SITE; so there is absolutely no doubt that Adam Lanza was not acting alone in this affair.  Seeing as the officer refers to 'THEY', meaning more than one, it means that we have multiple suspects apprehended.  When one considers that there was also a suspect (or suspects) apprehended in the woods, it begs the question:  Exactly how many additional shooters and/or accomplices were involved in this affair?

Reports surface that Nancy Lanza was not an employee of the school

On Saturday morning, December 15th, Dr. Janet Robinson, Superintendent of the Newtown Public Schools, was interviewed on the Today Show.  During this interview, Dr. Robinson is questioned about Nancy Lanza, the mother of Adam Lanza.  She makes the following statement:

"We have no Nancy Lanza in our database.  She may have been a substitute teacher but in terms of being a full-time employee, she is not...they asked me to look in the database to see if she was a teacher."

Report HERE

Also this from Yahoo News HERE

And this from the Wall Street Journal HERE

However, this information contradicts earlier reports which state that,

"The gunman walked into his mother Nancy Lanza’s classroom at around 9.30am and opened fire. It was unclear whether she died in the classroom, or earlier at her nearby home."

--from the UK Telegraph HERE

Also this from ABC News:

"According to ABC News, the shooter's mother, Nancy Lanza, worked at the school as a teacher's aide."

Report HERE

And this from CBC World News:

"At least one parent said that his mother, Nancy Lanza, was a substitute teacher at the school, but her name did not appear on a staff list, The AP reported."

Report HERE

Media reports that five guns were used in the assault and that 100 rounds were fired


"A mother who was in a meeting with the principal and half a dozen other people at about 9.30am described having heard a “pop pop pop” in the hallway.  The witness described cowering under a table and said that 100 rounds or more might have been fired. Two bodies were seen in the hallway in a pool of blood and children had to run past."

--from the UK Telegraph HERE

And this from CNN HERE

The Today Show went on to report that 'State and Federal Officials' had released a statement confirming that a total of FIVE weapons were recovered at the scene:  Four handguns and an assault rifle.  The handguns were said to have been recovered inside the school, whereas the assault rifle is said to have been recovered inside Adam Lanza's car.  

Report HERE

This, however, contradicts reports given by the chief medical examiner, who stated that,

"All the victims at the school were shot with a rifle."

--from ABC News HERE

And from CBS HERE

"The Associated Press reported that more guns were found inside of the school and that state and federal authorities were tracing them."

Additional reports surfaced that Adam Lanza was wearing a bullet-proof vest. 

--from ABC News HERE

All of this raises a legitimate concern:  Four handguns, a high-powered assault rifle, and a bullet-proof vest are an astounding amount of gear for a 20-year-old young man with autism to have in his possession.  Media reports have surfaced which state that all of this gear was registered under his mother's name.  Once again, according to reports, Nancy Lanza may or may not have been a teacher at the school.  If so, then the question must be asked:  Why is a purported elementary school teacher in possession of such an enormous arsenal of assault gear, including a military assault rifle?

As this story continues to develop, more details will be forthcoming.  We must all keep a vigilant eye on this story, most especially on the angle concerning the additional suspects apprehended on the scene.  In the meantime, please take a moment of silence for all of those poor souls who have died as a result of this massacre:  The teachers, the children, and Adam Lanza himself.  Yes, that's right, Adam Lanza:  A 20-year-old young man with Asperger's Syndrome and obsessive compulsive/personality disorder, a shy and reclusive loner, withdrawn from the world and called a 'nerd' and a 'goth' by certain people in the community.  We must ask ourselves:  How in the world is it possible for a man so young, (and, according to most reports, quite intelligent), to attain so many 'labels' in only the first twenty years of his life, and then somehow suddenly fly off the deep end and go on a shooting spree with thousands of dollars worth of assault gear, killing more than two dozen innocent women and children, as well as himself, in the process?
