The newly released prosecutor’s report on the Sandy Hook killings revealed that Adam Lanza played a game on his computer called “School Shooting.” The report, found at this link, also showed that Lanza was diagnosed with Asperger’s Disorder in 2005.
The report stated that Lanza “was described as presenting with significant social impairments and extreme anxiety,” and additionally “lacked empathy and had very rigid thought processes.”
It seems that Lanza lived his life in an online fantasy world. On page 26, the report revealed that “within the digital evidence seized,” was:
- Bookmarks pertaining to firearms, military, politics, mass murder, video games, music, books, Army Ranger, computers and programs, ammunition, candy, economic books
- Two videos showing suicide by gunshot
- Commercial movies depicting mass shootings
- The computer game titled “School Shooting” where the player controls a character who enters a school and shoots at students
- Screen shots (172) of the online game “Combat Arms”
- Images of the shooter holding a handgun to his head
- Images of the shooter holding a rifle to his head
- Five-second video (dramatization) depicting children being shot
- Images of shooter with a rifle, shotgun and numerous magazines in his pockets
- Documents on weapons and magazine capacity
Despite being “undoubtedly afflicted with mental health problems,” Lanza’s toxicology report indicated that he was not on medication at the time of his death. The motive remains a mystery.
