Reports Lanza shared plans online were struck down

November 26, 2013

NEWTOWN, Connecticut (AP) — A report says early indications that the U.S. school shooter might have revealed his plans online were found to have no connection to the shooting.

In documents that were part of a report released Monday, authorities say a Texas woman contacted Connecticut police the day of the Dec. 14 attack to say her son had interacted with someone while playing a videogame who said there would be a school shooting.

And two days before the shooting, an anonymous user posted comments online saying that they planned to commit suicide Dec. 14 and that it would make the news. The poster said they lived in Connecticut.

The report says both leads were investigated by federal law enforcers. They were found to have no validity and no relation to the shooting.
