Newtown shooter Adam Lanza was taunted and beaten when he attended Newtown Elementary School as a child, a relative has revealed.
The NY Daily News reported Saturday that Lanza's mother even considered suing Newtown Elementary School after teachers failed to address the bullying her son was subjected to while he attended to the school.
"Adam would come home with bruises all over his body,” the relative told the Post. “His mom would ask him what was wrong, and he wouldn’t say anything. He would just sit there."
According to the relative, Lanza's late mother was very upset at school officials for turning a blind eye on the situation and was trying to get more evidence before taking legal action against the institution.
“Nancy felt fiercely protective of him,” a relative told the post. “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."
Lanza's mother, Nancy Lanza, was murdered by her 20-year-old son on December 14th before he went on a killing spree at Newtown Elemendtary School ending the life of 26 people, 20 of whom were first graders.
The relative said Lanza was never "emotionally right" after attending Sandy Hook Elementary School and his mother switched him to a different institution after sixth grade.
“He was a sick boy,” the relative said.
