The Federal Bureau of Investigation’s records vault released a trove of documents Tuesday concerning their investigation into the December 14, 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook elementary in Newtown, Conn.
“Adam was a functioning autistic with a personality disorder and was a recluse,” one unredacted sentence from the agency’s summary reads (pg 6, 1 of 3).
In a section entitled, “Adam’s Physical Health,” the FBI explains Lanza may have had a “kidney/gastrointestinal health condition” and that he underwent kidney and gall bladder tests, had difficulty sleeping and weighed 85 pounds in 2010.“Adam was diagnosed with Ashberger’s [sic] Syndrome, a form of autism, in approximately the 8th grade. He left high school in either the 9th or 10th grade, and essentially became a ‘recluse,’ shutting himself in his bedroom, playing video games all day,” one anonymous source reportedly told agents.
The documents also highlight the FBI’s investigations of numerous death threats to various businesses and Newtown residents from copycats pretending to be Lanza in the days and months following the incident.
