Adam Lanza bullied: Relative says the Sandy Hook shooter was bullied in school

Adam Lanza bullied: Relative says the Sandy Hook shooter was bullied in school, Sandy Hook Elementary School shooter Adam Lanza, who in December of last year committed one of the worst mass murders in an American elementary school, was the victim of bullies, relatives say.

The NY Daily News reported April 17 that Lanza, who was 20-years of age at the time of the killings, was victimized throughout his school career with verbal insults and was physically accosted to the point where Lanza’s mother, Nancy, considered suing the school.

According to the relative, who asked to not be identified, teachers at Lanza’s school would turn a blind eye to the physical and verbal attacks from Adam’s classmates.

“Nancy felt fiercely protective of him,” the relative said. “She was convinced the school wasn’t doing enough to protect Adam. It made her irate. She was trying to get proof. She wanted to know where the bruises were coming from.”

The relative said Adam Lanza’s emotional state of mind was forever altered by his time early on in the Sandy Hook school system. Nancy Lanza switched him to another school after sixth grade, but he was continually bullied.

“Adam would come home with bruises all over his body,” the relative said. “His mom would ask him what was wrong, and he wouldn’t say anything. He would just sit there."

“He was a sick boy,” the relative told The News.

Before turning the gun on himself, Adam Lanza killed his mother after fatally shooting twenty children and six adult staff members at the Sandy Hook school.
