Is this one of those Norman Bates (fictional, I know) type cases of a domineering mother wreaking havok on her offsping? She was his first kill in the rampage.


- Well she got 24,000$ a month to care for him + medical coverage paid by father
- did not go to support groups but would go to social scenes
- left a 20 year old that wasnt allowed to cook for himself in a house full of guns alone for days

They ended up donating his body to a DNA study:

I agree with you on his head being shaped abnormally. In the picture of him in the above link he looks like he is starving to death which can also make anyone snap.

I think she was in denial or tried to hide how bad it was. Kids that need to live in supervised care due to mental health issues are not going to "fit in" (an obsession of hers). Cutting off conversations and contact is the worst thing you can do to anyone let alone an autistic child. They need extra practice at socialization. Maybe she knew he would blurt out something that would get him taken away along with her 24,000 so she just butted in to prevent the discovery. We will never know.

The kid looks so ill in that photo like he NEEDS to be checked into a clinic just for weight gain.
Weight can be one of those issues with severe mental health issues.
I just don't get how you could look at his face and think you don't need to do more than babysit him some of the time.

Where/when is that photo from?
Anyone know?

note to poster. the family DID NOT donate, sell ,or even claim Adam Lanza's body. He is going to be cremated if the family does not claim him

Adam Lanza will be cremated in secret and his remains hidden ...

www.mirror.co.uk/.../adam-lanza-will-be-cremated-in-secret-and-his-...
Dec 23, 2012 – School gun maniac Adam Lanza is to be cremated in secret to stop ... If the family do not claim Lanza's body or refuse to identify him, then it is ...


The photo you are reffering to was taken when he was 15 an not current . He did not look like that before he died.

Lanza was still basically a teenager and may have been schizophrenic on top of it -- both groups look pretty underfed as a rule. Everyone keeps hinting around that he was psychotic.

The way he holds his lips closed suggests to me that he had bad teeth, which would also distort the shape of his face.

Interesting i have yet to hear if he was on Rx or illegal drugs via biopsy. Nor has a family doctor MD or Ph.D come to light. Makes you wonder ....... its possible maybe he was not under any medical care and was not taking any Rx.... Not sure if that is child / adult abuse when you know your child is sick and needs MD visits and Rx.


Not sure how it works maybe he has to be claimed first in order to autopsy and have doctors comment on his medical records

I think they usually need a clear ID before they'll start on an autopsy. If nobody claims the body, maybe they haven't even GOT a positive ID yet. Nobody has mentioned anything about prescribed or street drugs, and that's an excellent point Pat!

They already did the autopsy and toxicology is either underway or done. That doesn't mean info in this ongoing investigation will be released to the public imminently. And I don't think info about the disposition of his remains will ever be shared with the public.

I don't, but just google his name and the words autopsy results. Vance (CSP) announced it during one of his media briefings on that Sunday, if I recall correctly.
