The post stated, ‘I’m going to kill myself on Friday and it will make the news, be watching at 9am.’

5Cold blood: Adam Lanza, seen here in middle school, opened fire on Friday morning at Sandy Hook Elementary School, murdering 26 people at the school before turning the gun on himselfAdam Lanza opened fire on Friday morning at Sandy Hook Elementary School, which teaches children aged 5 to 10. He murdered 26 people at the school before turning the gun on himself, as well as killing one other person – his mother – at another nearby site.


Investigators said they have found ‘some very good evidence’ to explain what drove gunman Adam Lanza, 20, to slaughter 20 children all aged six and seven and six adults at the Connecticut elementary school.

Newtown was ranked the fifth safest city in America by the website based on 2011 crime statistics.

‘This wonderful town that we all love for its peace, beauty, the great schools – all of that – has become Columbine,’ said Julie Maxwell Shull, a sixth-grade teacher at Reed Intermediate School, referring to the high school that was site of a 1999 shooting in Colorado.

‘We came here because it was going to be a good, safe community for our kids,’ said Catherine Hunyadi, as she and her husband wiped tears from their eyes. ‘You don’t send your kids to school thinking something like this might happen.’

Reports have also emerged that the Mr Lanza had visited the school the day before Friday’s massacre during which he was involved in an altercation with four members of staff at the school – three of whom are now dead.

It hasn’t been revealed what the argument was over or if it was reported to authorities.

The staff member’s testimony might be an ‘important piece of information’ for discerning motive in this case, reports NBC.

While initial reports had suggested school principal Mrs Hochsprung buzzed Mr Lanza into the building – bypassing the newly-installed security system – police have confirmed that the shooter forced his way in.
