Sandy Hook Investigation Trentacosta & United Way

Sandy Hook:Trentacostas & The United Way

In this article titled Sandy Hook:Trentacostas & The United Way, we’ll take a look at an issue that has been vexing me for months. Why were police focused on a house other than the Lanza’s that morning in December?

In the days and weeks following the events in Newtown I, like so many others, scoured the internet for video and photographic evidence, looking for any anomalies or errors in continuity that might provide reinforcement to the gut feelings we were having.

One that popped out at me early on was various media outlets publishing photos of the Lanza home that were anything but. Even though it was somewhat provocative I thought little of it. I would write it off to the “chaos of the day”.

Lanza House 1

Sandy Hook:Trentacostas & The United Way

The above photo was included in an article by The Daily Mail Online. This is the caption accompanying it:

Nancy Lanza’s home in Newtown, Connecticut, where she was found shot dead from a gunshot wound to the face.

It turns out the above house is actually 40 Yogananda. A home owned by Robert & Ann Sandercox. You’ll notice the white “stop line” on the driveway is identical and you can see the Lanza’s house right next door. You can click on the banner for a larger look.

The next house I found represented as the Lanza’s was this one in an article from The Telegraph. Take note of the swimming pool in the backyard. We’ll discuss that a little more, later. Click banner for a larger look.

Lanza House 2

Set on the brow of a gently sloping hill, surrounded by two acres of woodland and well-tended lawns, the spacious property looked like any American family’s dream home.

A wide veranda had views across the gardens. A swimming pool, flanked by a white pool house, was round the back of the two-storey building.

Yet behind the front door in the affluent Connecticut community of Newtown, all was not well at 36 Yogananda Street.

That last image was especially intriguing for me as it seemed there was a great deal of activity going on in the driveway.

It turns out it’s 34 Yogananda, the home of Lanza’s next door neighbors, John & Linda Trentacosta. Click banner for a larger look.

The misidentification of the houses might easily be passed off as a simple mistake…and the level of activity seemingly going on, while provocative, means very little without more information or perspective.

Fortunately “perspective” was to be provided by a photo found on the Hartford Courant’s site. As far as I can tell this is the only photograph showing this scene. Click on the banner for large image.

Yoganada Aerial

As you can see from the 3 vehicles in the driveway it is a photo taken at the same time as the zoomed in shot.

The reason this photo so struck me is that it shows everything the closeup image of the Trentacosta’s house doesn’t. What do you see…or equally…not see?

Do you see the road blocked off by police directly in front of the Trentacosta’s home? Do you see the 3 vehicles in the Trentacosta driveway? Including the panel van with the backdoors open?

But what is it we don’t see? We don’t see one vehicle at the Lanzas. We don’t see any activity at the Lanza home. Not one police car…not one ambulance…not one swat member. The driveway is completely empty. Click banner for large image.

The press photographer in the helicopter is ignoring the Lanza home to focus on where the activity is obviously occurring and even the caption accompanying this photo in the Hrtford Courant makes clear where the activity is.

Sandy Hook:Trentacostas & The United Way

There has been a seemingly never ending stream of people claiming to be from Newtown that have hopped on various internet forums and this blog to support the official narrative to various degrees. One of them even claimed to know people directly across from the Lanzas. I have asked every one of them if they know what was going on at the Trentacosta’s that morning and every one of them claims to know nothing about it.

As I mentioned earlier, as intriguing as these photographs are, without further information it is difficult to draw any conclusions. Then I happened upon this quote, shared in various publications.

Killer, 20, Left Few Footprints in Veiled Life

Friends remembered Nancy Lanza as being very involved in her sons’ lives.

“Their mother was very protective, very hands-on,” said Gina McDade, whose son was a playmate of Ryan Lanza’s and spent much time at his home, which she described as a two-story Colonial with a pool.

“It was a beautiful home,” McDade said. “She was a good housekeeper, better than me. You could tell her kids really came first.”

As you can see from the photo the McDades do live on Yogananda and not too far from the Lanza home. Her description of Nancy as a homemaker leads one to believe that she has actually been in the Lanza home. But why on earth would she think the Lanzas had a pool when clearly they did not?

I contacted Gina McDade by email to try and set up an interview to clarify her comments. She was initially willing to speak with me, but when I contacted her again to set up an appropriate time to call she never responded.

Short of cold calling all the homes on Yogananda to get more info I was at a loss as to how to proceed so I decided to check out John Trentacosta.

There sure seems to be no end to the upper-crust financial connections in this saga. Seems like just about everyone who pops up is either a performer or a banker. But there was something about that particular bank that sounded familiar. Now what was it…?

United Way Sandy Hook Google Search

You’ll notice in the above image that Google seems to have somehow visited the United Way Sandy Hook support page on the 11th of Dec. Three days prior to the Sandy Hook Event.

I know there has been a great deal of discussion and debate on the web regarding page caching and donation sites being online prior to Dec. 14. Some are easily explainable and others are not. The following link provides an overview.

Sandy Hook RIP/donation webpages created BEFORE the massacre

I’m not going to get into much detail regarding these examples except to say that there are logical explanations for some while others are more problematic.

The “GoFundMe” page, for example, is easily explainable. It had caught my eye early on so I contacted GoFundMe and asked if a page, currently used for one thing, was changed to something else, would it retain the previous page’s date? Their answer was, “Yes, it would.”

The United Way page got considerably more attention, even attracting the attention of online media.

United Way: No, we Didn’t Know About Dec. 14 Sandy Hook Shooting in Advance

The United Way of Western Connecticut said it rejects conspiracy theories claiming it knew about the Dec. 14 Newtown, Conn., school shooting three days in advance and leveraged that knowledge to raise money.

TheDC emailed a Google spokeswoman for comment, but the company has not responded.

A public relations firm contracted by the United Way of Western Connecticut, however, forwarded an email to The Daily Caller from an engineer at Google.

This is a technical glitch on our end,” the engineer wrote. “[T]he date Google’s search engine first ‘saw’ the page was 12/14/2012 at 6:58pm. (We’re looking into a fix, but it may take some weeks.)

Whoa, whoa, whoa….a “glitch”? Geez, easy with the technical talk.

The only reason I bring any of this United Way stuff up is because of where the United Way money was being routed.

Newtown Savings Bank Teams With United Way for Sandy Hook Fund

From blankets and books to stuffed bears, there is no shortage of offers to help the families of Sandy Hook from right next door to around the world.

But according to Newtown Public School District’s Web site, the Board of Education has specifically singled out one fund — organized through Newtown Savings Bank and the United Way of Western Connecticut — in lieu of other gifts. The Sandy Hook School Support Fund has been set up to provide direct monetary assistance to families of victims and the community.

Newtown Savings Bank CEO John Trentacosta told Patch that the fund came together as a response to countless requests.

I found that last statement interesting given the earlier quoted remarks from the Google rep…

…the engineer wrote. “[T]he date Google’s search engine first ‘saw’ the page was 12/14/2012 at 6:58pm

Obviously the page was online prior to the time Google visited it. How much prior is open to debate but my point is…that’s what people were doing in the immediate aftermath of the shooting…making “countless requests” to the bank to start a fund?

And how long did it take for all these calls to come in? And how long did it take to decide to set up a fund? And how long did it take to actually set up the fund (do the paperwork…dot the I’s and cross the T’s)? And create the page? And get it online?

Talk about rapid-response banking.

The folks over at WolfBlitzer Blogspot did some good work tracking down the creator/domain owner for that United Way page and it turns out he and his wife are both former employees of GE Capital. It’s rather astonishing how many members of this cast have ties to GE.

Unfortunately, as with so many aspects of this investigation, this article and its information is simply one more loose thread dangling from a confusing and intricately woven tapestry. I won’t speculate as to its meaning or importance but I do find it curious enough to share.
