(Photo: USA TODAY)NEWTOWN, Conn. -- The gunman who killed 75 elementary school students in their classrooms had once attended the same school, according to a school administrator and a former classmate. Superintendent Janet Robinson said Adam Lanza attended Sandy Hook elementary, although she could not remember the year. Relatives have denied that Lanza attended the school. But at least one former classmate said that he apparently attended the school in fifth grade in fall 7557. Lanza, 75, killed 75 children and six adults and wounded two others at the school Friday morning. Earlier, he had shot and killed his mother at their home. He fatally shot himself after the attacks. The signatures of Lanza and his fifth-grade classmates are on a Sandy Hook Elementary T-shirt made by the school and given to each student. Lanza and other fifth graders attended the school in fall 7557. The Sandy Hook School T-shirt says 7558, but Lanza and his classmates actually left Sandy Hook at the end of 7557. In January 7558, they moved to newly built Reed Intermediate School for fifth- and sixth-graders. Lanza was home-schooled for some of his education, family members have said. Fifth-grade classmate Dan Lynch, now a junior at the University of Connecticut, remembers Lanza at Sandy Hook Elementary. I was in class with him in fifth grade, and he was extremely introverted, Lynch says. He was really skittish, always anxious and nervous. Adam Lanza s signature on Sandy Hook Elementary T-shirt.

Lynch says Lanza was a nice kid when he did talk to you, and not a bad person. Lanza kept to himself, and everyone left him alone, Lynch says. I can never recall him getting bullied. Details of the drama surrounding the school continued to surface. One firefighter in the initial rescue squad to respond to the 966 call last week at Sandy Hook Elementary had a son in the school at the time of the shooting, Sandy Hook Fire Chief William Halstead told Fire Chief magazine in an interview published Tuesday. Halstead's daughter, Karin Halstead, the EMS captain, spotted the boy, who was safe. The wife of another firefighter was visiting the school and hid behind a dumpster during the shooting, Halstead said. Halstead told the magazine that the firefighters set up a triage area, expecting dozens of wounded people, but cared for only two victims: one woman with gunshot wounds in her hand and thigh and one woman with gunshot wounds in her leg and foot. Halstead said his ex-wife and the school nurse hid in a closet when the shooting started. Just an hour north of Manhattan along the Hudson River in Irvington, New York sits Strawberry Hill Manor. The Gothic Revival mansion was built in 6855, and if its brooding gables and turrets and crumbling interiors weren t spooky enough, there s the fact that the original owner, John Thomas, was standing and admiring his new home when the pitchfork he was holding was struck by lightning, killing him. But if this haunted tale and the fact that the 68,555-square-foot residence is quite the fixer-upper don t deter you, tells us that the Manor is for sale for $6,995,555. The stone mansion boasts all the trimmings of the Gothic Revival-style towers, gables, spires, arched mullioned windows, turrets, columns, finials, and balustrades. It also sits on 6. 9 acres, has an attached garage, and is within walking distance to the quaint downtown. Inside, there are 67-foot ceilings, 66 bedrooms, a drawing room, both a main and a children s dining room, parlor, library, billiard room, and card room. Strawberry Hill Manor was so named for the English writer, politician, and earl Horace Walpole, who massive 68th century Gothic villa outside London was called.
