A thought just struck me: we have no idea how Nancy really behaved when it was just her and Adam. Thus the question "why did Adam kill his mother?" becomes even more unanswerable. Maybe she was sweet as pie, trying to comfort him only to be rebuffed. OR, maybe she was mean to him, either explicitly or implicitly, implying that he was a liability or showing a general lack of affection. Reports from Peter Lanza and her friends suggest otherwise, but we can really never know when we don't have a direct account from either of them, which would probably be unreliable anyway. Plus, as C. W. Wade has pointed out, it's likely she was a alcoholic; there was a lot of wine in that house, and we know Adam didn't drink.

Just an interesting thing to think about.

One interaction between Adam and Nancy that is known about took place on a night in August 2008, when Adam was 16 years old. Adam and Nancy seem to have had cross words, which apparently stemmed from Nancy saying or implying that she thinks she wasted her life.

I think, personally, that Nancy was pleasant and accomodating to Adam. She seems to have done everything in her power to help Adam. Even the downstairs area of the Lanza household, where Adam rarely went, had its windows covered with mirrors or thick drapes.

Her being "mean" to Adam (who lived with her, rent free, for 20 years) is no justification for her murder.

Will never know. Whatever relationship they have/had was taken to both their graves
