Radio show host recalls 'chilling' phone call from Newtown shooter Adam Lanza

Is the Sandy Hook elementary gunman speaking from the grave?

According to the New York Daily News, Adam Lanza called into an Oregon radio show almost a year before he massacred 26 people in Newtown, Connecticut and the disturbing recordings may give some insight into what motivated the 20 year-old killer.

The 2011 call to a show called "Anarchy radio" lasted nearly seven minutes and focused on a story about a chimpanzee in Connecticut named Travis who mauled his owners neighbor.

Newtown shooter may have called radio show year before attack, newspaper says

The caller, who identifies himself as Greg compares the chimp attack to a teenage mall shooter. Take a listen.

"His attacks can be parallel to the attacks the random acts of violence that you see on your show every week, committed by humans which the mainstream also has no explanation for. An actual human I don't think it would be such a stretch he very well could be a teenage mall shooter or something like that…."

OutFront: John Zerzan is the radio show host who took that call and Katherine Newman is the Author of "Rampage: The Social Roots of School Shootings."

    Internet is now going to be censored so the country will probably never know the truth regarding this matter.

    There is no way at all that this is Adam Lanza.
