1. Sounds as if he was unaware of the news for hours

amazing - you'd have thought, with the name 'Lanza' getting out quickly, people around him would have been talking.

2. So who was the dead guy at the house? Or was that just more crappy,

 

irresponsible "reporting" from the MSM??

3. I think it was the Mom

Latest that I heard is that she used to work at the school but was not there now.

It's going to take a long time to get to the bottom of this horrific event.

5. It was the mom.

They didn't know she was there or even dead until they went to the house after noon sometime. Then they had to identify that that was her. She was a teacher's aid at the school.

7. Interesting from another angle

The weapons said to be owned by the mother are those normally associated with a shooting enthusiast of some sort. I was thinking they might have belonged a deceased spouse, since women are not nearly as into shooting as men (though the ratio is getting more balanced). Most people take their firearms with them in a divorce. Now its back to square one.

It will be interesting to see what else she owned, how she had them stored and why she owned them. Those identified to date are not inexpensive firearms.
