(INTELLIHUB) — Peter Lanza, father of the Sandy Hook elementary school shooter Adam Lanza, has apparently come forth in an exclusive interview with The New Yorker, shedding some insight into his sons world.
According to the report Adam’s father did not visit Adam Lanza for at least 2-years before the shooting on the request of Adam’s mother Nancy.
The report also indicated that Peter Lanza has not forgiven Adam for what he did in December of 2012, when he shot and killed his mother, 20 elementary school students, 6 staff members and himself.
NBC News reported:
New Yorker writer Andrew Solomon said Lanza approached him in September because, he quoted Lanza as saying, “I want people to be afraid of the fact that this could happen to them.”
Solomon was interviewed on NBC’s TODAY Monday morning.
“With hindsight, I know Adam would have killed me in a heartbeat, if he’d had the chance,” Lanza said. “I don’t question that for a minute. The reason he shot Nancy four times was one for each of us: one for Nancy; one for him; one for [his brother] Ryan; one for me.”
Lanza says that by the time his son entered middle school, “it was crystal clear something was wrong.” Adam was socially awkward, anxious, unable to concentrate and afflicted with insomnia.
The family thought they’d gotten an answer when Adam was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome, a high-functioning form of autism, at age 13. But after a severe reaction to the anti-anxiety drug escitalopram, he refused to take any psychotropic drugs thereafter — behavior that profoundly concerned a psychiatric specialist who treated him.
“While Adam likes to believe that he’s completely logical, in fact, he’s not at all,” the specialist wrote in an assessment.
Still, Peter Lanza says he is convinced the Asperger’s diagnosis had little to do with the mass killings. Instead, he said Asperger’s may have been masking schizophrenia.
However, some are not buying the report and question if the Sandy Hook school shooting even took place. New evidence will be reported on in the coming weeks by Intellihub News showing a lot more connections to the likely staged massacre.
