So the FBI just released 1,500 pages of documents on Sandy Hook. They mostly consist of documents on Adam Lanza’s life prior to Sandy Hook. I’m not sure what’s already known about the case I’m just gonna put it all here.
The information consists of school information and medical records. There are also accounts of the websites he frequented. He had been taking some online language and college courses and also sold National Rifle Association safety qualifications after visiting shooting ranges with his mother, who had been described as a “gun nut.” Some blame her for her son’s mental health and for having weapons in the house at the time.

In addition to these, there are also records of his relationship with his mother as he only communicated with his mother via email as he does not leave his room for three months prior to the shooting, some neighbours even said they had not seen him in years. In these three months, he did very little, mostly listening to Japanese techno music and playing video games. (Grand Theft Auto, Call of Duty, Doom, Left 4 Dead, Pikmin, Paper Mario, Shin Megami Tensei, Lego Star Wars, Kingdom Hearts.) The police discovered a number of gaming devices and computers upon searching the Lanza household which had been “significantly damaged by force trauma” and “scratched with an implement.”

In his medical records, it stated that he was a vegan who did not like the texture of food, he was only 111lbs (50kg) when he died. In addition to this Lanza adopted “strange behaviours” such as preferring to sleep on the floor instead of the bed. He also liked to go on walks but avoided bright and natural light. It is also worth noting that Lanza was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome (which is on the autism scale) though he had a hard time accepting this and refused to take his perscribed medicine.
In regards to his mother, it detailed that his mother once worked at a school, which Lanza also attended and he felt as though “his mother loved the students more than she loved him.” A witness told an agent that Lanza had been bullied at school though “not excessively” due to his “social awkwardness” and appearance. Also, when Lanza was in ninth grade he hacked through two levels of security to an undisclosed government computer. It was also reported that Lanza threatened to kill his mother sometime around December 2008.

An online friend he met on a website dedicated to Columbine said he was the “weirdest person online.” Lanza also used screen names based on Tim Kretschmer and Kimveer Gill. It was said in an interview that Lanza “was singularly focused and obsessed with mass murderers and devoted almost all his internet activity to researching and discussing mass murderers and spree killing.”
He also had an online relationship with a woman, whose identity was protected for privacy reasons whom he met through a website where players adopt the roles of the Columbine shooters. She noted that it was clear that he was depressed and viewed the world negatively. He expressed occasional suicidal thoughts but she did not think he was capable of killing himself nevermind others.
Despite this, the FBI concluded that Lanza had done “careful, methodical planning and preparation.” and could have possibly been planning the attack since March 2011. She also told authorities that he had gone into details about his sexuality, he also hinted at the fact he might’ve been asexual. She mentioned that he composed “at least one lengthy email” on his views about paedophilia. In which he expressed his hatred of it but also said it could be “possibly beneficial to both parties.” FBI agents found a file on Lanza’s computer ‘advocating paedophiles’ rights and the liberation of children’ as well as a screenplay about a relationship between a 10-year-old boy and a 30-year-old man.
Another online friend was quoted to have said that Lanza felt “pity” for children as they believed that authoritarian people were “improperly controlling” them. She added that Lanza possibly felt as though he was “saving” or “protecting” the children from “taking them away from harmful influences.” He also viewed death as “an escape from the pressures of life.”
Similarities Between Dennis Nilsen and Jeffrey Dahmer
• Both were gay serial killers
• Both frequented gay bars
• Both were in the army. Dahmer was a combat medic and Nilsen was a cook.
• Both had alcohol problems
• Both were in denial of their homosexuality. Nilsen tried to reassure himself that he was bisexual and dated a woman to prove this. Dahmer dated a woman as well, and his murders were seen as a way to rid himself of his homosexuality.
• Both killed because they wanted companions that would not leave them
• Both craved control over their victims
• Both were fond of animals. Dahmer had a dog and a cat as a child and fish as an adult, and was horrified after seeing a classmate run over a dog with his car. Nilsen had pet pigeons as a child and was extremely upset when a vandal killed them. As an adult, Nilsen had a dog that eventually became his only companion.
• Both performed sexual acts on corpses
• Both cooked parts of their victims
• Both had close relationships with one of their grandparents. Dahmer was close to his grandmother and Nilsen was close to his grandfather.
• Both stored their victims’ bodies in their apartments and had neighbors that became suspicious of the smell emitting from their homes
• Both were almost caught by the police. Dahmer was almost caught when victim Konerak Sinthomphone was able to escape his apartment and run into two girls who called the police. Dahmer was able to convince the police that they were lovers just having a disagreement. One of Nilsen’s victims woke up while being strangled and called the police, but the police did nothing, thinking it was a domestic disagreement as well.

“I believe in the, in the evil in human nature. This is a wicked, wicked world, and in a wicked world wicked people are born. I’m not gonna blame society, my race, or people, or anything. It is up to the individual like myself to keep on knocking on whatever door they want to get into. As far as Satan is concerned, I believe in a malevolent being whose description eludes me, but I have felt powers that are evil.”
After being charged with first-degree murder in the Aug. 20, 1989, for the killings of their father, defense lawyers say they acted out of fear for their lives. Three days after Lyle Menendez had threatened to disclose years of sexual abuse by his father. They say Jose Menendez sexually molested his older son from the ages of 6 to 8 and his younger son from the ages of 6 to 18.The brothers are claiming self-defense in the same manner that battered wives have successfully argued that killings of abusive husbands are justified even at a moment when they are not under physical attack.
“They didn’t even look like people. I didn’t relate to Sharon Tate as being anything but a store mannequin. She sounded just like an IBM machine. She kept begging and pleading and begging and pleading and I got sick of listening to her so I stabbed her” -Susan Atkins on the murder of Sharon Tate
“We’re told, everybody, that all things are bad. Bad is not good and good is not bad. Bad and good go together. You have to accept one to understand the other. You’ve got to accept yourself as God. You’ve got to realize you’re just the devil just as much as you’re God, that you’re everything and you’re nothing at all” -Charles Manson
Okay so like I feel like nobody knows about this and it’s kinda personal to me because I was staying in Whitehaven (one of the towns where this occurred) as it happened though I don’t remember much about it as I was only 10. Though I do remember being in a supermarket which went into lockdown.
Derrick Bird (pictured above) was a 52-year-old, self-employed taxi driver who, on 2 June 2010 shot and killed 13 (including himself) and injured 11 in Cumbria, England. This was the deadliest mass shooting since the 1996 Dunblane school massacre which left 18 dead. Bird even told a colleague, Peter McClean, that “Whitehaven will be a famous as Dunblane.”
The series of attacks began in Lamplugh and moved to Frizington, Whitehaven, Egremont, Gosforth, and Seascale. The perpetrator later committed suicide in a wooded area in the village of Boot.
Pictured above are the weapons used by Bird; a George Fisher 12 gauge double-barreled shotgun and CZ 452-2E ZKM .22-calibre bolt-action rifle. Both were recovered and were owned legally by Bird.
Derrick Bird was convinced that the world was turned against him. He was described as a “good bloke” by people who knew him. Yet others described him as “emotionally void” and a viewer of “extreme porn.” A psychologist desribed him as a “bitter, resentful and depressed man, blaming the rest of society for his failures” and that he suffered from a “delusional disorder.”
His victims were:
David Bird, 52 (his twin brother)
Jamie Clark, 23
Kevin Commons, 60
Issac Dixon, 64
Kenneth Fishburn, 71
Susan Hughes, 57
Jennifer Jackson, 66
Jimmy Jackson, 71 (killed as he went to save his wife Jennifer)
Photograph of one of the D.C. Snipers crime scenes, prior to the removal of the body of Sarah Ramos. 34 year old Ramos had been shot shortly after she had left her bus and sat down to read her book on the bench. The D.C. Sniper spree shootings resulted in ten deaths and three injuries, and were committed by John Allen Muhammed and Lee Boyd Malvo(who was only 17 years old at the time of the crimes). In total their true body count was 17 deaths, due to crimes they had committed prior to starting their shooting spree.
1. “I purposely bumped into you to pick your pocket and steal your phone and wallet. But when I got far enough away from you to see my score, my own wallet and phone were missing. So, like, come back because we’re totally meant to be!”
2. “I was left to lock up at work when someone in a mask walked in waving a gun around, demanding the money in the register andddd– ‘Person A, is that you?!’”
3. “I witnessed you and you’re partner commit a crime and now they’re making you hold me hostage. You seem to want to protect me from them, is there any chance you can get me out of here???”
4. “You came out of nowhere and saved me from being mugged and we eventually start dating. Recently, I saw you out and about, but before I could call your name, I watched you happily meet up with the person who tried to mug me. What the hell is going on?”
5. “We were both hired to carry out a hit on the person that lives in this house and I’ve never not completed a job. Either you let me do this, or I take you out, too. And that’d be a shame because, fuck, you’re cute and your methods are pretty impressive…”
6. “We’re both thieves/murderers that the government are trying their hardest to identify. They haven’t connected us to each other yet; no one knows that we’re married and pass our time by planning what crime the other commits.”
7. “We met in prison/ a holding cell/ the back of a cop car and fell in love/ bonded.”
Bonus: “Now we’re planning our escapes.”
8. “I’m a guard/cop and was tasked with keeping an eye on you until you’re processed, but you’re really hot and won’t stop flirting with me. I’m thinking about losing my job for you!?!?”
9. “You are undercover and had been assigned to eventually bring me in. Now that you’ve grown to know me, you aren’t sure they’ve got the right person. But you have a job to do so, what’s it gonna be? Do you trust me or them?”
10. “You’ve struggled you’re whole life and have never experienced luxury. I might be a criminal, but I seriously love you and I only want to give you the best. Nowadays, I do this for you.”
11. “I’m a bad person, but I am willing to change/ give up my lifestyle for you.”
12. “I will never change so you’re either with me or you’re against me.”
13. “We’ve been best friends literally since forever so it’s not much of a surprise that we both turned out so evil. Join me.”
14. “The cops are literally hunting us and it’d be best to split up, but I can’t leave you, not now. We’re going to have to have a stand off and shoot our way out of this. ’'Til death do us part, Baby.’ ”
15. “You woke up to me sneaking in the house covered in blood and with bags of money/jewelry in hand. But instead of freaking out, you’re telling me to undress so you can wash the blood out my clothes?! Remind me of your past again…”
17. “I’m a fighter, we both know this. And you never ask questions when I drop by after a bad fight. You just pour me a shot and get your first aid kit. God, I love you.”
18. “You hacked me and learned everything about me with the intent of stealing my identity, but now you feel bad because I literally have nothing.”
19. “We sort of have a kink for making love on a bed of stolen cash. I’m in the mood so what’s our next big score?”

One day before her execution, Aileen Wuornos was interviewed by producer Nick Broomfield. After the interview, Broomfield stated “my conclusion from the interview is, today we are executing someone who is mad. Here is someone who has totally lost her mind”
