How would his subsequent life have turned out?


My theory.

Adam Lanza goes to college and studies computer studies and linux programming. I can see this happening.

maybe someone notices his mental health issues (and actually cares), and he gets put in a mental hospital

maybe he continues on a downward spiral until he kills himself

maybe he goes on a shooting spree anyway at somepoint in his life, or just kills Nancy/family

Adam would still be in his room, where he should have stayed, in my opinion.

Yeah. Unlike Eric and Dylan, he couldn't even fake being normal for five minutes.

This sounds weird but it would be cool talking with hin as long as he hadn't killed people. I think he had some abstract but interesting ideas.

My boyfriend talked to him back in 2011 and he told me that Lanza was weird, creepy and talked like he was a pedophile. I doubt that is anyone you'd be interested in talking to. Most people who knew him prior to the shooting said he was a weirdo.

He did talk like a pedo, but I don't think he WAS a pedophile. He didnt seem like he had sexual attraction to children, in fact, he seemed to want to "save" them (or at least in his own twisted way). I kind of see him as Holden Caufield, thinking he's righteous and he's saving kids from the phoney adult world.

Its tough to say if you read his private message he denies being a pedophile. He says something like I support rights for everyone and then defends being pedophile.
But why would you defend a sexuality unless you believe in it to some extent.

I think he did have an interest in children through.  Because even as young as ten he wrote in the big book of granny that he likes to hurt people especially children.

Some  he hated children for some reason.  Maybe when he was young people picked on him and made fun of him so in the end he went crazy. But we will never know.


We will never know his motives but here are three ones I can think of

1. The travis the chimp theory. He saw children as being indoctrinated by the society he hated and he did seem angry at civilization for some reason. Maybe he knew some of these children would thrive in society and he was envious at that because he failed to adjust. I mean elliot rodger another killer wrote about wanting to kill his younger brother because he would surpass him.

2. He was obsessed with mass shooting and he picked a place where he would expect the least resistance and kill the most people and he knew shooting an elementary school would make people pay attention because of the shock factor.

3. He had a power fantasy of hurting people. This seems to be true I mean he wrote even in middle school of wars and stuff.

I do not think he was a pedophile in real life, because he was so reclusive.

He was also on the autism spectrum, and people with ASD show less interest in sex.

He probably would have just lived the rest of his life as a hermit in his room, until he dies at some point, going unheard of by society. Or unless as other posters have said, he kills himself, or eventually goes on a shooting/killing of some sort, or maybe his life somehow turns around

The only way I see him not doing Sandy Hook is if he just plain shoots himself or chooses a different target.

If he just randomly decided to back out, I think he would have died later on because of his weight or he at some point, gives up and kills himself.

I honestly think he would have shot himself too eventually or perhaps be put in a metal institution.

Yeah suicide seems like the most likely scenario, or his health deteriorating.

He would either kill himself, his mental / physical health would decline to a point where he would have to be put away in a hospital or he would just shrink away and carry on with his normal routines.

If by some bizarre chance he decided to not commit any kind of murder-suicide, I think he would inevitably end up in some sort of psychiatric facility after Nancy’s death and stay there until his own since most likely he’d never be able to live independently. I believe in the last years of his life he was fully aware of that and it may have been one of the main factors that contributed to his final decision (and while I feel tempted to write a long novel of a post on whether or not he envied or hated “normal” kids like his would-be victims for having vastly different prospects for their future than he ever had, I know I probably shouldn’t do this right here, or right now). In contrast to that, he seemed to overestimate his capabilities greatly when he was younger. Just one example: in 2010 he in all seriousness contemplated joining the military even though it should’ve been clear as day to him that it was not remotely possible with all his issues. Makes me wonder if he was generally more delusional than I think he was.

He was in a very bad mental state which seems to have been only declining in his last 2 years. If he would not have killed himself, then it would remain to be seen how long would Nancy manage to keep it going.

I can see how Lanza would decide not to commit the spree killing, but I doubt he would stop himself from killing Nancy at some point. Then he would end up in prison, be diagnosed with the psychotic disorder that he had and placed in locked facility... which is where he belonged in the first place.

I do not usually blame people other than the shooter in most o these cases, but seeing all the evidence I will make an exception for Nancy. She seems to be more to blame for the death of those kids than Adam himself.

He would've killed himself or shot up some other place. There was no way Adam could ever enter society and go to college unless he started getting extensive and serious therapy.

The only way I could see Adam not ending in a murder or suicide is if he was (no doubt involuntarily) treated for years and given enough pills to make him a drugged-up zombie. He was more a mass of mental illnesses in the shape of a person (depression, anxiety, OCD, anorexia, autism, schizophrenia) and his lack of life / social / job / romantic experience didn't give much of a chance for a functional person to develop, even under all the disorders.

Maybe I'm just a pessimist, but here's what I see:
He is forced to go to college and suicides before be has to.
He is forced to go to college and suicides there, possibly publically.
He is forced to go to college, graduates, and returns to his cave at Yogananda, likely posting on SCMRPG to this day.

If left in his room, he'll probably take his life eventually, and a shooting (if not at SHES, than at another school or public location) would in all likelihood be involved and we would still have this thread.

Even for people less insane than Adam Lanza getting a good job and carrers in a field like tech/ IT is hard, most people end up wage cucking and I am not sure he could work at wal mart or mcdonalds or something like that because of anxiety, although other shooters like Randy Stair who was on a similar level of craziness held jobs as grocery store workers.

From what i've gathered, adam was a basement dweller who still lived with his parents and never left his house. He was a nerd. These two facts combined make me think this: He'd live out the rest of his life with no job, reading a lot, only leaving the house when he goes to anime conventions, and wasting his life away on this forum due to his columbine obsession. He'd most likely be in and out of psych wards due to his poor mental state. He would be like a failed boogie2988. I highly doubt he'd be an incel, he didn't show any misogyny or hatred for women, but his life would still be on a dark path nonetheless.

He would have killed himself at some point. There's no way he was going to properly function in the outside world. Adapting was not his forte. Once you are aware of the cold truth of the world, there's no going back.

Best case scenario, he would’ve kept staying inside most of the time still living with his mother. Same rigid routines, same lack of real social interaction outside of his internet usage. I could see him putting his tech skills to use for odd jobs here and there as he really was quite gifted, but I seriously doubt he would’ve been able to hold down a full-time job working in an office due to his mental health. No matter the situation, Nancy likely would’ve kept coddling him and sheltering him from the real world. He wouldn’t have been able to come close to being a normal functional member of society without being pumped full of medication, intensive therapy, possible inpatient treatment etc… and we all know neither Adam or Nancy would’ve ever allowed that to happen.

That being said, if he’d have kept playing DDR all these years… I think he would’ve ascended past the mortal realm into dancing god territory.
