Adam Lanza‘s brother Ryan, has this afternoon come out to state that he never gave an interview with the NYPost through Facebook, saying instead that any postings attributed to him were fabricated.
Said a statement: ‘This is a complete hoax.’
In the story, Ryan Lanza, who works for accounting firm Ernst & Young in Manhattan, purportedly told a New York Post reporter in a Facebook chat, “I am a victim. I loss [sic] my mom and brother.”
24 year old Ryan Lanza through a spokesperson went on to reiterate that he had in fact shut down his Facebook account shortly after the shootings which happened on December 15th. As an aside the two brothers had ceased all engagement come Christmas 2010, as of yet Ryan Lanza has offered no reason as to what may have preempted the abrupt seizure of their relationship. It has also been thought that Adam Lanza’s mother Nancy may have infuriated him in her attempts to follow his brother’s foot steps and finally move out of the home as she was increasingly despairing about her son’s inability to evolve.
At present it is still not understood how or who orchestrated the deception while a Ryan Lanza’s spokesperson went on to describe the NYPost story as the ‘unfortunate result of a poor editorial process.’ Or should we just cross that out and wonder a desperate bid for a scoop?
