Prior to the publication of a definitive criminal investigation report, due sometime in June, an unidentified “law enforcement source” is uploading data to Hearst newspapers.
The Greenwich Times has reported, only days before a General Assembly report on the mass murder in Sandy Hook is due, that Adam Lanza, responsible for killing 20 students and 6 faculty members at Sandy Hook Elementary School, was “obsessed” with other mass murders.
According to the source, Mr. Lanza was particularly interested in the Anders Breivik case in Norway. In July 201, Mr. Breivik bombed government buildings in Oslo, killing 8 people, after which he murdered 69 people at a camp on the island of Utøya. The camp he attacked was associated with the Workers' Youth League (AUF) of the Labour Party.
The source told the newspaper that investigators also had uncovered “a lot of material on the Amish case," a reference to a shooting at a one-room Amish schoolhouse in Lancaster County, Pa. in which Charles Robert “took hostages and shot 10 school girls, five of them fatally, before killing himself… Hearst Connecticut Newspapers previously reported that police had uncovered evidence leading them to believe Lanza was attempting to surpass the Norwegian killer's total.”
Investigators who searched Mr. Lanza’s Yogananda Street home, the paper noted, discovered “reams of documents related to ‘virtually every mass murder’ in the United States and abroad."
