Morbid find suggests murder-obsessed gunman Adam Lanza plotted Newtown, Conn.'s Sandy Hook massacre for years
Law enforcement reportedly discovers a sickeningly thorough 7-foot-long, 4-foot-wide spreadsheet with names, body counts and weapons from previous mass murders and even attempted killings. 'It sounded like a doctoral thesis, that was the quality of the research,' an anonymous law enforcement veteran said.
It is three months since the killings in Newtown, since 20 children and six adults were gunned down at Sandy Hook Elementary School less than two weeks before Christmas. And as bad as the story was, and will always be, it is even worse than we originally knew because now we discover that this was slaughter by spreadsheet. It has been reported previously that law enforcement found research about previous mass murderers at the Newtown, Conn., home the shooter, video gamer Adam Lanza, shared with his mother, the first victim of Dec. 14. It was more than that, and worse than that.
What investigators found was a chilling spreadsheet 7 feet long and 4 feet wide that required a special printer, a document that contained Lanzas obsessive, extensive research in nine-point font about mass murders of the past, and even attempted murders.
But it wasnt just a spreadsheet. It was a score sheet.
We were told (Lanza) had around 500 people on this sheet, a law enforcement veteran told me Saturday night. Names and the number of people killed and the weapons that were used, even the precise make and model of the weapons. It had to have taken years. It sounded like a doctoral thesis, that was the quality of the research.
The law enforcement vet attended the International Association of Police Chiefs and Colonels mid-year meeting in New Orleans last week, a conference where state police colonels share...

Special printer my butt. Apparently these morons aren’t aware Excel automatically breaks it up for standard paper and you can customize it, too.
A huge 7x4 foot paper, with 9pt .
If I saw my kid printing something like that the first call is the shrink. Not sure I would even ask what it was. Just the sight of it would be creepy enough to me.
When they find Lanza's disk, they'll learn how this very old technology works.
Which means the media glorification of shootings in part inspired this demon to see if he could set a record
he wrote a doctoral thesis of murder but if we simply passed a bill against assault weapons it would have stopped him. /s
Notice how they withheld this information for over 3 months until all the gun grabs were well underway. Especially important was the fact that he searched out a vulnerable “gun free zone” to target. This kid, like the ones in Colorado and Arizona were easily identifiable but were protected by their progressive parents.
I would challenge anyone who says that this takes years to gather this data. I could probably assemble the same data from raw sources over the internet in six weeks. Excel simply makes it easy to package and display the data.
What I would say about this...is absolute obsession. At the moment when he started gathering this data....his mind was set and I doubt if anyone was going to stop him at that point.
But here’s the honest humble truth. There are likely 100k Americans today, who are mentally unhinged and could easily accomplish the same act. We aren’t willing to put them away into a state facility. We’ve accepted the fact that they must walk among us.
Weird, the first thing I did earlier when the story broke was dropped his name in the White Pages search and it came right up.
Not a moron and that’s the problem. A moron wouldn’t have been so damned successful.
The left refuses to admit that the worst criminals are getting smarter. So they pass dumbass gun legislation which is written for any literate criminal to see!
It is weird he didn’t have a Facebook unless he used either a private profile or an anonymous or character name like gamers and cosplayers sometimes do.
“Stebbins spoke for a long time about the morning of Dec. 14 at Sandy Hook Elementary”
Isn’t there a gag order during the investigation? If this guy can talk, why can’t everyone else?
Have any ties outside of country been determined? Getting a few rumblings on that question. Heard anything or read anything?
No but I haven’t looked that hard. Just a quick Google (dominated by the news story so useless), Facebook (no results), and White Pages (the hit linked above).
“the media glorification of shootings in part inspired this demon”
Archive news search just brings up two articles about a Thomas Seevakumaran in Florida, just some sort of golf listing (don’t know more w/ out buying the articles).
That may be a possibility. All of my searches have offered the name suggestion of Sivakumaran (Indian origin). Considering he apparently was arrested in 2006 (where the mugshots came from), I wonder if he tried to change it to hide a crime in his past.
She was trying to get him committed.
