It was quickly deleted, of course, but people managed to save all the content before it went down. So, now we have new insights into the mind of Adam Lanza. Adam Lanza committed the Sandy Hook school shooting . On December 14, 2012, he killed his mother, and then went to an elementary school, where he killed 20 children and 6 adults. The children were in Grade 1. Lanza was 20 at the time. He lived with his mother and spent most
