Posted on 12/18/2012 7:00:28 AM PST by KansasGirl
Adam Lanza's hard drive, which was found destroyed in his Connecticut home, may be beyond repair police say, leaving them at a loss to explain the shooter's motive.
When police first discovered the tainted hard drive, they believed that it could serve as a key piece of evidence in discovering why a 20-year-old man would terrorize an elementary school filled with children. It appears, however, that the shooter did not want his motive unveiled.
"The computer's hard drive appeared to have been badly damaged with a hammer or screw driver," law enforcement authorities told ABC News on Monday. Two other sources reported to a local Connecticut paper that the hard drive had been in pieces.
"He was eliminating [investigators'] ability to figure out what websites he had gone to or who he might have been communicating with," one investigator told Yahoo.
The little information that police do have confirms that Lanza was an avid player of violent video games.

“Adam Lanza’s hard drive, which was found destroyed in his Connecticut home, may be beyond repair police say, leaving them at a loss to explain the shooter’s motive.”
Before they give up on the pieces, they ought to consider inviting forensics experts from the NSA, or other specialists (such as top data recovery firms) have a go at it.
I read a report that there were two computers in the home (other belonging to his mother), and that one should be checked as well.
I don’t believe there’s any conspiracy here, nor attempt to cover up findings “that don’t fit”, regardless of some of the posts made above.
I just don’t think the Connecticut State Police has enough resources to adequately piece together damaged hardware like this. They had trouble with evidence in the Peter Reilly case, too.
Exactly. I was going to posit that he was Lanza’s controller. But...demured because I didn’t want people to think I’m a conspiracy nut. I’m just asking questions.
There were reports he wore a mask. Hanging around with Anonymous?
which violent video game?
The LE has been very very stingy with info. Then they leaked a little to NBC, a favored media of the prog left.
Now they act like they can't crack a problem like this?
I don't care how tinfoil it sounds. The info that comes out is either mismanaged, or suggests political management of an agenda-driven narrative.
In this case, Yahoo is just a news source.
Scanning electron devices can do a lot with beat up platters, just depends on how bad they want the info.
The strange thing is that the police had the computer, and thought they’d find data.
But if the hd was removed, that is almost certain to be obvious at the first glance, laptop, desktop or tower.
What I've read about the two fathers of the two mass murderers is that both fathers were scheduled to testify at the same hearings, not that they were necessarily under investigation.
And the SVP of CNBC had his children butchered in NYC at home the day after publishing/going with the story on the theft of trillions by banks.
If the source for debunking is snopes, we know its important to debunk, dont we.
Real forensics do that of course, there’s a full snapshot which cannot be written, with audit for things like chain of custody and so on.
And platters can be bent or broken, you can still get data. The preferred method I’ve seen is cunntin in pieces with a couple plate shears, then dropping in wat of strong acid.
That 'fact' has morphed. In truth, both fathers have bank accounts.
Perhaps Ambassador Rice can help us understand the forensic nuances.
Better to research if first. :)
Can you explain?
I thot this dumbass kid was a flaming genius? His computer lab perfessor claims the punk was a real wiz putting stuff together. So the best he can do is take his computer apart with a hammer? Reminds me of a kid I grew up with——when he wanted to take something apart he always started with a hammer——but that’s the only tool he had so he finished with the hammer too. He was usually looking for ball bearings to play marbles with. Seems like the Newton Nutcase never had any marbles to start with? If he was a true geek and not just a gamer he would have known how to destroy memory /files/etc. More suspicions all around.
Sorcha Faal gotya again, LucyT!
He/She’s the one who started the rumor about the Conn. killer’s father due to testify at the hearings...
Faal is an expert deceiver. Since most of her “sources” come out of the “Kremlim” and serve the purpose of demoralization and fear targeted at Americans, I am guessing KGB. But I guess she could just be an independent evil manipulator. idk
The dad of the CO shooter was set to testify in front of congress (within 2 weeks after the shooting), in regards to the Libor Scandel. Against Tim Taxcheat Geithner. The Sandy dad is also a player in Libor Scandel but not sure what capacity.
Just a coincidence.
Also, study the make-up, Batman stuff and a skit from the most recent Olympics. Batman at the Olympics on about the same week as the CO shooting.
Is this Sorcha Faal’s website?
But apparently when she did so, she didn’t get enough of a concussion to warrant a trip to the hospital. Interesting.
Far be it from me to suggest that anyone with the last name of Clinton has ever been anything less than completely forthcoming with the American people/sarc.
