Adam Lanza: Did He Preview School Shooting on 4Chan?

by at . Comments

Did Connecticut school shooting perpetrator Adam Lanza preview Friday's stunning massacre on the online forum / bulletin board 4Chan two nights beforehand?

That's the rumor going around, anyway.

In the following 4Chan forum exchange, an anonymous user purported to be Lanza makes an ominous promise that he will kill himself Friday and it will make the news.

He adds that he lives in Connecticut.

The below screen grabs from 4Chan have been censored, but also appear to show other users egging Adam Lanza on (if it's really him). Take a look ...

Adam Lanza on 4Chan?

State and federal officials are still putting together the pieces of one of the worst mass murders in U.S. history and the 20-year-old who shockingly carried it out.

The first Adam Lanza photos released last night, in all their boyish innocence, belie the violent thoughts he apparently harbored - and acted upon. Horrifying.

For all the debate over gun control - and you can expect plenty of that - it is beyond tragic that no one saw, or maybe even could see, how troubled this young man was.

Twenty-seven people were killed, including Lanza, who began the day by shooting his own mother in the face, allegedly with weapons registered in her name.

Legend has it that if you travel east to Japan, you will find an old man living on the coast just 40 miles south of Tokyo. If you give this man $500,000 he will take you to an island just off the coast that can't be found on any map. This island is filled with people without faces or names, who hold grudges over the most trivial of matters. When you arrive at this island the first thing you will see is a swimming pool that is never open. Just beyond the pool you will find a town that is filled with cats. You must find a white cat wearing a pink bow. If you ask the cat how to get to Mexico, he will stand up and ask you for three things: Your name, your face, and your soul. If you agree to give them to him, your face will vanish and you will forget your own name. You can live on the island and have whatever you desire, but you can never leave the island. The only way to escape is to find the cat again and ask for a young child. The next day a van will pull up in front your house. You will hear a knock at the door, and a voice will ask if you want to come to a party. No one knows what happens if you answer the door. Their souls have been sold, and now they have everything they desire.

It was fake. There's a Ponychan fake too. Maybe you should run that story too.

Good lord, this is such an obvious troll. On top of the page at 4chan is a disclaimer Hollywoodreporter.com should READ the next time they want to publish such crap: "The stories and information posted here are artistic works of fiction and falsehood.
Only a fool would take anything posted here as fact." I suggest this be page gets taken down. It's just embarrassing.

As a moderator of 4chan I can confirm this is fake.

4chan's posts always have seconds withing the timestamp. These, however, have hours and minutes, no seconds. These photos are false. A simple trip to any 4can board will disprove any suspicion. Fact check, reporters. It helps.
