Skip to comments.Gunman’s computers may be key in Connecticut school shooting investigation

For a young man who has been described as withdrawn from the outside world, Lanza's computer room is likely a gold mine for detectives, a veteran law enforcement source familiar with the investigation told Yahoo News.
"If he visited certain websites, they are going to glean whatever information they can from that and see what it means," said the source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to discuss the investigation publicly. "Does he have friends he communicates with online? Was there a fight with somebody?"
Lt. J. Paul Vance with the Connecticut State Police told reporters Sunday morning that investigators are scrutinizing the guns Lanza took to the school, including the semiautomatic military-style rifle the state's medical examiner said was used in the school killings.
"The weaponry involved, we are tracing historically all the way back to when they were on the workbench being assembled," Lt. Vance said.
However, he declined to discuss what else has been recovered from the Lanza home.
"Simply stated, we have a great deal of evidence that we're analyzing," Lt. Vance said. "The forensic part is an important part. That's not done yet."
While the gunman is thought to have acted alone, the law enforcement source said a deep dive into Lanza's computers could provide more clues.
"You don't know if this kid was put up to this by somebody else," the source said. "You don't know if there was a conspiracy of sorts. You don't know if there wasn't somebody who wasn't goading this kid on."

There is a video on youtube taken by MSM helicopter showing the cops arresting two men outside of the school (one was captured in the woods after a foot chase). No word from LE who these two were. At the time of arrest the shooter was already dead in the school with the victims. Like the Colorado shooter of the movie theater, both shooters have exec fathers who are scheduled to testify in the LIBOR fixing scandal that is rocking the banking community in US and EU. Coincidence or smoking gun??!!!!
Actually massive weight gain IS a side effect of a lot of psych meds - zyprexa, depakote, etc.
It is way too easy to plant evidence or lose evidence on a HD. No way is the truth going to come from any of these fishing expeditions.
That’s an interesting and eerie connection.
My guess is it just shows that high powered executives often are wedded to the job and don’t pay a lot of attention to their kids.
He must have gotten cleaned out in the divorce though, when the reporters informed him about the shootings, the story said he was driving a Mini Cooper.....
...or at least an interesting choice of car. Many folks with interesting political leanings drive those. Thanks.
Think the media would have reported on his political views if his Facebook page said Tea Party instead of Anarchist Communism?
I agree with you, but on some of the ADHD drugs, my grandson may have Aspergers, has taken, he gained weight when taken off the meds.
I noticed in those earlier pics of Adam, he was very skinny, like my grandson.
I’d expect a vice president at GE would be in a 7 series BMW, Merc S class, or Lexus LS. Maybe he borrowed the Mini from the household staff....
“Professor Raoul X: a guiding hand of history.”
I wonder if the fathers know each other and if the boys did too.
If there were 2 men picked up in the woods could they be spectators who knew it was going to happen?
The media is running with the picture of skinny teenager instead of a bloated middle aged man. If this is actually the shooter on the left the images being widely used are no where near accurate.
I’ve seen a claim out there that he made a statement on 4chan on Wednesday (IIRC) that something big was going to happen on Friday.
Like I said two days ago by the time the Ministry of Truth gets done he will be a founding member of the Tea Party.
BTW, faking that sort of thing is also quite likely for the 4chan crowd. So who knows?
