Adam Lanza would burn himself "to feel something"

http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/nancy-lanza-feared-son-adam-worse-article-1.1221505?localLinksEnabled=false

EXCLUSIVE: Nancy Lanza feared son, Adam, was ‘getting worse’; told friend ‘he was burning himself with a lighter’Less than a week before her son would launch his horrifying attack on Sandy Hook Elementary School, gun-loving mom Nancy Lanza knew "she was losing him" and that "he was getting worse."

A drinking buddy of Lanza told The Daily News that her son Adam had long been troubled and rarely came up in conversation.

"She just looked down at the glass and said, 'I don't know. I'm worried I'm losing him,'" said the bar pal, who did not wish to be named, of the ominous conversation at the bar My Place in Newtown, Conn.

"She said it was getting worse. She was having trouble reaching him."

(article also says Nancy was into falconry):
She "was a country girl" who loved to hunt with a falcon that would scare game she'd blast out of the sky.
