The New York Daily News calls it an "exclusive" and the Huffington Post calls it a "possible motive": As a child, Adam Lanza was bullied and even beaten by his fellow students at Sandy Hook Elementary School, a relative of Nancy Lanza tells the Daily News. Nancy Lanza was so angry over the situation and her perception that teachers ignored the abuse that she considered a lawsuit, the relative claims. "She was convinced the school wasn't doing enough to protect Adam. It made her irate."

In the family member's telling, Nancy would ask Adam, who came home "with bruises all over his body," what happened, but he would not respond. "He would just sit there," the relative says. At one point, Nancy even accompanied him to school to try and catch his classmates attacking him. The relative says Adam seemed to have emotional problems after his time at Sandy Hook. (Meanwhile, more details have emerged on why the gun shop that sold to Nancy Lanza lost its license.)
