Adam Lanza's Body Reportedly Shown Off by Morgue Staffer Before Autopsy

Twisted 35

Adam LanzaThis country is full of some truly sick people. Take Jean Henry. She works for the Connecticut Office of the Chief Medical Examiner. Or should I say worked? Henry has been suspended from her job as an administrative assistant for allegedly allowing her husband to sneak in to ogle at Sandy Hook shooter Adam Lanza's body.

What kind of people work at a medical examiner's office and think this is acceptable? No. Wait. What kind of people think this is acceptable?

Sources say the Henrys went into the room where Lanza's body was awaiting a post-mortem, unzipped the bag, and Jean's husband took a good long look at the shooter before they zipped it back up and walked away. At least it sounds like the body wasn't disturbed so much as used as a source of entertainment by a looky loo.

But even that is unsettling ... at best. We're still talking about a dead body here, someone who was once walking around and breathing. This isn't a movie. This isn't fun and games.

Look, we all know by know that Adam Lanza was the man responsible for the heinous murder of 27 people. His suicide in the middle of that school as police streamed in to save the children and school staff is -- to many -- the easy way out.

But he was still a human being, still the child of a man who eventually claimed his body for burial. If there's no respect for Lanza's humanity, shouldn't there have been respect at least for what his body represented to his family?

Do you think this medical examiner staffer should be fired for this breach? Would you have taken a look at Adam Lanza's body if given the chance?

Inappropriate. Completely someone getting a thrill gawking at something they saw on the news.

Anytime anyone thinks of making a spectacle out of this, think of the mothers without their child.... the very children that were with them just a few short weeks ago. This isn't a spectacle to them. It's a harsh horrible reality that they neither anticipated nor deserved.

While you're playing looky loo, they are living a nightmare.

Mankind takes pleasure in the death of the wicked, the world itself is calling the Lord God a liar. Ask the media questions! They rather probe people minds, looking for lies to promote debate. (Rom 1:29) No man can make money off the truth! The media is against humans, they love mankind. And what kind of man is that?

Why is the media always asking questions to the people? The people do not ask the media to take questions from them, why because they are all brainwashed, afraid of grace and truth. Satan chose the word God, but where is The Word of God.


Stop being such a baby. He was a mass murdering fuck head. Doesn't make it right what the Henry's did but I really don't have a problem with it.

I honestly couldn't care less who took a peak at his body. Just because he's dead doesn't mean he deserves any kind of respect. Screw him.

This to me is such a non-story. Who cares if a staffer looked at the body. Anyone associated with the ME's office would have seen it. Maybe it gave the hubby peace, who knows, and who did it harm? The guy is/was dead, doesn't sound like the hubby took pictures to sell, do anything to him just looked. Victimless crime IMO.

I continue to ask myself why I read Jean's post, I guess I just can't drive by a car wreck without looking.........I'm such a dumbass.

Jeanne, I want to thank you for including 27 murders everyone you mention this. I applaud you.

She has no right to show her husband. How many other people has she done this too?

I am also curious on who ratted her out

Personally I must think that looking at a dead body that is not you're kin is gross and twisted in a way. I couldn't even go to the viewing of my great grandmas body at the funeral home. It disturbed me... There's something wrong with this guy.

alway... alwayscurious

Well, I would totally be ok if he was thrown to the wolves and vultures, buuut it was very unprofessional of her, and most probably against the rules. And WY would her husband even want to look...weirdo.
