Lanza Chose School for Shooting to Rack Up “Points” As Deranged Video Gamer


Investigators of Adam Lanza, shooter in the Newtown, Ct., school massacre, found a spreadsheet 7 feet long and 4 feet wide of Lanza’s research on mass murders of the past, and even attempted murders, reports the New York Daily News. A participant in a New Orleans law enforcement recounted a presentation by a Connecticut police official. “We were told (Lanza) had around 500 people on this sheet. 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.”

“They don't believe this was just a spreadsheet. They believe it was a score sheet,” the source said. “This was the work of a video gamer, and that it was his intent to put his own name at the very top of that list. They believe that he picked an elementary school because he felt it was a point of least resistance, where he could rack up the greatest number of kills. That's what (the Connecticut police) believe. They believe that (Lanza) believed that it was the way to pick up the easiest points. It's why he didn't want to be killed by law enforcement.”
