it's been a week since the newtown massacre and i still don't think that they have figured out why adam lanza attacked sandy hook elementary school. early on there were reports that his mother worked there, but those reports turned out to be false. so what was the reason?

lanza is dead, so we may never know. but for the last week i've had this theory. about 12 hours before the newtown shooting, there was an attack on an elementary school in china. the story made international news, i heard about it as i drove to my hearing that morning before the newtown attack occured.. but then the china story was buried under the news of the connecticut shooting (only to be revived later as a contrast to newtown as part of the current gun control debate).

did adam lanza hear the news about the china attack before he killed his mother? did that give him the idea to attack an elementary school to use his suicide to get international notoriety? i haven't heard anyone else voice that theory, so i guess i will just throw it out there.
