Adam Lanza's Parents

Divorce Shows No Evidence

Of Mental Health Problems

The divorce papers of Adam Lanza's parents reveal nothing that would indicate their son had mental issues.

TMZ has obtained the divorce docs between Peter and Nancy Lanza. The docs were filed in 2008 and the divorce became final the next year. 

One thing's for sure ... the family was financially well off. Peter agreed to pay Nancy $240,000 a year in spousal support for 2010. The yearly spousal support was to increase each year. In 2012 Nancy was to receive $289,800.

There is no mention or indication of any mental health issues involving Adam. There is a boilerplate reference, "The wife shall pay for unreimbursed medical, surgical, hospital, optical and psychiatric, psychological, and nursing expenses..." It continues, "Each parent shall be entitled to complete information from any physician, dentist, psychologist, consultant, or any specialist attending the children."

It's important to note ... the provisions (above) are standard and do not reflect specifically on this divorce.

And, in the docs, Peter agreed to buy Adam a car. Adam reportedly drove his mom's car to Sandy Hook Elementary school before going on his rampage.

No sign of mental illness??? Are you kidding? He killed 27 people before committing suicide. He was clearly mentally ill and whoever was involved with the divorce either didn't see it (it's usually not obvious people), or didn't include it. This article disgusts me and further promotes the degradation of people suffering from mental illnesses. Completely ignorant.

Check out this video on there being three shooters. Also, the picutre you see of Adam here is from junior high. His more recent picture looks like Mark David Chapman, he has tattoos, and says he is a communist anarchist.


Don't believe the media spin. The real story is being suprressed.

Stop saying his name! This is why these idiots keep doing this ****. They want their names to be remembered. They need to be forgotten. The victims names are the ones who should be remembered.
