Was Sandy Hook a Hoax? Part 6: Adam Lanza May Not Have Existed

Just when the Sandy Hook conspiracy allegations seemed to be dying down, a vigilant "truther" seems to have recently uncovered some new facts which are unsettling, to say the least.

A few days ago, on March 2, a YouTube video was posted by a gentleman going by the username of 1mYourGh0st.  The video, which is over 13 minutes in length, consists mainly of the standard, run-of-the-mill conspiracy theorist dialogue we've all heard countless times before.  But the video's creator may have stumbled upon a big honking smoking gun, which he reveals near the 11:00 minute mark.  Folks, hold on to your hats....

Using a real estate database, the uploader establishes that the Lanza home, at 36 Yogananda Street, was built in 1998.  These records show that the home was purchased in July of the same year by the Lanzas, making them the home's first inhabitants.  The creator of the video then searches for records pertaining to Ryan Lanza- the shooter's brother- and up pops his Newtown address, 36 Yogananda Street.  The interesting part?  Under the part of the results which list "other people at this address" the following names appear: Nancy Lanza, Peter Lanza, Ryan Lanza, and John Riebe.

That's right- the name Adam Lanza does not appear as one of the persons who were living at this address.  Just the parents, their son Ryan, and someone named John Riebe. 

The video's creator clicks on the man's name, and (surprise), John Riebe's age and date of birth are listed as "unknown".  This is interesting, because the same database provides the ages and dates of birth of the other individuals living at 36 Yogananda Street.

So who the heck was this mystery tenant living with the Lanzas?

On Jan. 14, the National Enquirer published an exclusive interview with the man who built the Lanza home- a builder by the name of Robert J. Riebe.  This could possibly explain why a "John Riebe" was listed as one of the occupants at 36 Yogananda.  However, this doesn't explain why there is a mention of everyone in the family who lived at the address except for Adam Lanza.  It is also interesting to note that the Enquirer interview lists the contractor's age, while the property records lists Riebe's name and date of birth as "unknown".  Could there have been a different person with the last name living with the Lanzas?

In all likelihood, "John Riebe" probably refers to the builder of the home, yet it is strange that Adam's name has been omitted from the records.  However, this seems to be par for the course.

If you perform a search on Intelius for Nancy Lanza, among the information will be a list of relatives.  Peter Lanza appears on this list, as does Ryan Lanza.  Guess who's missing?

Perhaps the most bizarre part of this story is an article which was published the day after the shooting.  This article, published on, discusses how an innocent guy in Hoboken named Ryan Lanza was deluged with spam and hate mail after the media erroneously identified him as the shooter.  In the article, Adam's brother Ryan is quoted as saying on Facebook: “So aperently im getting spammed bc someone with the same name as me killed some ppl.,”

Seems like a rather odd reaction after learning about a shooting in your old hometown.

When Ryan Lanza heard about the shooting in his own hometown, why did he think it was someone else with the same name?  A more believable reaction would've been something along the lines of "Holy sh*t. I used to live there!" or "OMG, maybe it was my little brother" or "Oh! Well that explains why I couldn't find my ID- someone else must've had it."  In other words, the fact that Ryan thought it was another person with the exact same name who killed dozens of children in the town where he grew up smells fishier than a tuna boat.

You might say that Ryan acted as if he didn't even have a brother at all.

The Incest Capital of the World?

At the far eastern edge of Kentucky, nestled in Appalachia, resides Letcher County. In spite of its isolation and poverty (approximately 30% of the county's population lives below the poverty line), Letcher County has managed to grow at an impressive rate, from a population of just 9,172 in 1900 to a present-day population of nearly 25,000. However, even if Letcher County tripled or quadrupled its present population, there's still a pretty good chance that virtually all of the county's inhabitants would be related to each other-- thanks to one particularly fertile family whose astounding rate of reproduction can put even the friskiest rabbit to shame.

Around the year 1900, Letcher County was the home of a man by the name of Jason L. Webb, who made national headlines for having the one of the largest families in the world. According to newspaper reports of the era, Jason had 19 children, 175 grandchildren, and 100 great-grandchildren. Perhaps even more impressive was his b…

Black Eyed Children Finally Explained!

Last month, we received an email from a reader in Michigan, in response to our article debunking the "black eyed children" phenomenon, which links these so-called "paranormal" entities to recreational drug use.  The reader, whom we will call Onizuka in order to protect his identity, claims that not only is he familiar with BEKs- but that he was one.  "Onizuka" agreed to speak with JOTB via Yahoo instant messenger.  Ironically, this conversation took place on 4/20, a date which is embraced by those who are part of the drug culture.

JOTB:Thanks for taking the time to speak with us.  In one of your previous emails, you stated that you were a "black eyed kid".  What did you mean by that?

Onizuka:  Last November I was driving late at night at turned on the radio and came across an episode of Coast to Coast AM and the topic of the show was black eyed children.  It convinced me to do some research on the topic, and that's how I found your article.  A…

Remembering the ill-fated voyage of the Aerowagon

From 1917 to 1922, the Bolshevik-led Red Army battled the anti-Communist White Army during the Russian Civil War.  By the end of 1919 the Bolsheviks had taken the cities of Omsk and Kiev, and had successfully repelled the White Russian siege of Petrograd.  However, the Bolshevik's momentum would be short-lived as the White Army, after retreating across the Baikal, regrouped and joined forces with Gigory Semyonov's Transbaikal Cossacks.  As the Red Army's losses began to mount, especially in Poland, the Bolsheviks attempted to gain a competitive advantage by embracing new technologies, sometimes with disastrous results.  Such is the sad tale of young inventor Valerian Abakovsky and his Aerowagon.

Abakovsky was a Latvian-born inventor who earned his living as a chauffeur for Cheka, the state security organization created by Lenin.  His position granted him access to many high-ranking Soviets and, although details are scarce, Abakovsky most likely used his influence within t…
