Sandy Hook: The case of Adam Lanza’s ex-con funeral director

Originally posted on Fellowship of the Minds.

Adam Lanza was the 20-year-old alleged mass murderer of Sandy Hook who, on December 14, 2012, first killed his mother, Nancy, with four shots to her face in their family home, then drove a short distance to Sandy Hook Elementary School. There, in the space of 11 minutes, he shot to death 20 first-graders and 6 adults, before killing himself with a shot to the lower back of his head.

Sandy_Hook_LanzaAmong the many curiosities about Lanza, such as not leaving any online footprints despite being a computer wiz, is the fact that genealogy websites, e.g.,, initially had Lanza’s date of death, according to the Social Security Death Index, as a day before the massacre, on December 13, 2012. It was only after the curious date had been discovered by bloggers, did the websites revise it to the day of the massacre. (See “SSDI changed Adam Lanza’s date-of-death from Dec. 13 to Dec. 14, 2012 !!!” and “Sandy Hook: Adam Lanza’s strange Dec. 13 date-of-death just won’t go away”)

This post is about another Adam Lanza oddity: The funeral home and director who cremated his body.

Adam Lanza’s Death Certificate

On Dec. 23, 2012, the UK’s Mirror reported that Lanza was to be cremated in secret “to stop hater mobs targeting his remains”. On Dec. 31, 2012, ABCNews reported that Lanza’s “body” (presumably his ashes) had been claimed by his father, Peter, whose divorce from Nancy was finalized in 2010, and that the funeral home wanted to remain anonymous.

It turns out there is good reason for the funeral home to “remain anonymous”.

The alleged death certificate for Adam Lanza, published by the Sandy Hook skeptics-bashing, identifies two businesses that were involved in Lanza’s funeral arrangements:

  1. Linwood Crematory as the business in charge of “Disposition” of Lanza’s body (see Box #29 of death certificate).
  2. Hartford Trade Service as the “Funeral Facility” (Box #33), next to which is an illegible scribble as the “Signature of Funeral Director” (Box #34), whose license number is 2698 (Box #35).

Adam Lanza death certificate

Linwood Cemetery and Crematory is at 41 John Ward Ave., Haverhill, MA 01830. Why Linwood was chosen is a mystery because it is located in Massachusetts — not Newtown, Connecticut, where Lanza killed himself; nor Stamford, Connecticut, where Peter Lanza resides; nor Kingston, New Hampshire, where Nancy Lanza was buried. (See Daily Mail)

To add to the confusion, a blogger has “A Statement of Death” for Adam Lanza by a funeral director at an entirely different funeral homeBrookside Chapel and Funeral Home in Plaistow, New Hampshire. (See my post, “Sandy Hook: Adam Lanza’s strange Dec. 13 date-of-death just won’t go away”.) Stranger still, that “Statement of Death” initially also had Lanza’s date of death as 12/13/2012 – a day before the alleged massacre. Nine days later, on 1/24/2013, Brookside made an amended “Statement of Death” with Lanza’s date of death changed to 12/14/2012. 

Hartford Trade Service & the Ex-Con Funeral Director Kevin Riley

That leaves Hartford Trade Service as the “Funeral Facility” for Adam Lanza’s body, and its funeral director who had signed Lanza’s death certificate with an illegible scribble, and whose license number is 2698.

Hartford Trade Service

We did an Internet search for Hartford Trade Service and found several news reports on HTS’s crooked funeral director Kevin Riley.

Kevin Riley, director of Hartford Trade Service
Kevin Riley, director of Hartford Trade Service

According to Hartford Courant, on January 25, 2011, Kevin Riley, 54, funeral director and owner of Hartford Trade Service, was sentenced to eight months in prison for using “a body-removal contract with the state medical examiner’s office to gain access to the estates of people who had died and stole assets from some of them,” and for double-billing state agencies for body removal. 

Prosecutors said Riley had himself appointed administrator of the estates of people with no relatives, giving him access to money and property with little or no scrutiny. Riley and his co-conspirator, Yolande Faulkner, who also was charged with larceny, would then steal money, jewelry and paintings and sell some of them through an auction house where Faulkner also was the bookkeeper. All told, Riley, through Hartford Trade Service, billed the Department of Social Services and the Office of the Chief State Medical Examiner more than $25,000. In many of those cases, Riley also charged the state $1,800 in burial fees — while also charging the person’s estate that same amount.

Riley surrendered his funeral director and embalming licenses to the state Department of Public Health and agreed to repay the estates he stole from as well as two state agencies that he had double-billed. Additionally, he must perform 50 hours of community service during each of 3 years of probation once he is released from prison.

Below are the State of Connecticut Department of Public Health‘s notification of Riley’s voluntary surrender of his license, and the discipline citations against him and Hartford Trade Service:

The Phonecall

We looked up Hartford Trade Service (HTS) on and found its address and phone number:

Hartford Trade Service: 623 Main St., East Hartford, CT 06108, (860) 282-4500

We called that number, and had an interesting and cordial conversation with HTS’s owner, Kevin.

After 4-5 rings, a man answered. We asked if Hartford Trade Service is a funeral home. He paused, then answered hesitantly, “Yes,” and explained that HTS is a “non-traditional” funeral service because it:

  1. Only does cremation; and
  2. Does not deal with the public but works “behind the scenes” as a “subcontractor” (presumably to regular funeral homes).

He said HTS does not have a website and that his name is “Kevin.” He said HTS is still in business, despite some accounts that it had closed in 2011. Kevin also confirmed that some employee at HTS was in legal trouble a few years ago. He said he’s been HTS’s owner since 2010.

From the phone conversation, in all likelihood “Kevin” is Kevin Riley, funeral director of Hartford Trade Service, who in 2011 was convicted and sentenced to 8-months in prison for overbilling the State of Connecticut (for which HTS must have served as a subcontractor); and for stealing from the homes of deceased, then selling the stolen goods to antiques dealers.

Hartford Trade Service on Google Map

Zillow says Hartford Trade Service’s address, 623 Main St., East Hartford, CT 06108, is a single-family home (lot 5.6 acres), last sold in Jan. 2011 for $280,000. has HTS as “Open Now”, M-F 8am-5pm.

But when we searched for 623 Main St., East Hartford, CT on Google Map, the building is identified as River Bend Funeral Home Crematorium! Below is a screenshot from Google Map:

623 Main St., East Hartford, CT

Indeed, Funeral Home Resource and both say River Bend Funeral Home & Crematory is at 623 Main St., (860) 282-4500 — the same address and phone number as Hartford Trade Service’s.

The Visit: Who’s Kevin Davidson?

An in-person visit to 623 Main St. confirms that the building carries only a sign that says “River Bend Funeral Home”. No where is there any indication that the building also houses Hartford Trade Service.

Kevin wasn’t there, but a male employee was, who said that River Bend Funeral Home’s owner is Kevin Davidson (not Kevin Riley)Here’s Kevin Davidson’s business card, identifying him as the owner of Hartford Trade Service:

Kevin's Business Card copy

The only problem is this: The website ConnecticutCorps: Company Profiles of Connecticut, has Kevin Riley as the owner of River Bend Funeral Home, 623 Main St., East Hartford, CT 06108 — which means the assistant lied. More disturbing still is what ConnecticutCorps says about River Bend’s “Company Overview”:

RIVER BEND FUNERAL HOME AND CREMATORIUM, LLC is a Domestic Limited Liability Company in Connecticut and its company number is 0901394. RIVER BEND FUNERAL HOME AND CREMATORIUM, LLC was registered on May 29, 2007. The company’s status is listed as Dissolved.

As proof, here’s a screenshot of ConnecticutCorps page on River Bend, with the time and date (4/27/2016) when the screenshot was taken:

The Search for Licenses

We then went on the State of Connecticut’s eLicensing website to search for the licenses of Hartford Trade Service, funeral director Kevin Riley, River Bend Funeral Home & Crematory, and funeral director Kevin Davidson. Alas, we came up empty-handed on all four:

  • We searched for Hartford Trade Service and got this: license expired 1/5/2011.
  • We searched for River Bend Funeral Home and got this: license expired 1/4/2011.
  • We searched for Kevin Riley, funeral director of HTS, and got this: No records found for the criteria entered.
  • We searched for Kevin Riley, funeral director of River Bend Funeral Home, and got this: No records found.
  • We searched for Kevin Davidson of River Bend Funeral Home, and got this: No records found.

Below are screenshots of the search results:

That the State of Connecticut’s eLicensing has no records for funeral home Hartford Trade Service is also confirmed by an anonymous tipster to Professor James Fetzer. In an email, the tipster wrote:

Hartford Trade Service’s business expired 1.5.2011! This is very big as Hartford Trade Service not in business when Sandy Hook occurred! Closed for almost 2 years!

Hartford Trade Service
License type: funeral home
Licence no: 467
Expiration date: 1/05/2011
Granted date: 6/1/1989
License status: Inactive


To summarize, our investigations — online, by phone, in person — found that:

  • The funeral home for Adam Lanza was Hartford Trade Service, which has an expired license, but its owner said on the phone it is in business.
  • Though in business, the building that houses Hartford Trade Service does not identify itself as HTS, but as River Bend Funeral Home & Crematorium instead.
  • The funeral director of Hartford Trade Service, Kevin Riley, is a convicted felon, whom an employee claims to be Kevin Davidson.
  • But a website on company profiles in Connecticut identifies Kevin Riley, not Kevin Davidson, as the owner of River Bend Funeral Home.
  • The State of Connecticut eLicensing website has no records for funeral homes Hartford Trade Service or River Bend Funeral Home, or for funeral directors Kevin Riley or Kevin Davidson.

However, if the Sandy Hook massacre never took place, and Adam Lanza never died (or, as some say, never even existed), then an unlicensed funeral home with an unlicensed funeral director who’s an ex-convict would be the perfect candidate to pose as the “funeral facility” for a non-existent corpse.

  1. MHB attempted to “boost” a post on Facebook today for the James Tracy Legal Defense Fund. Yet after the promotion ran for just a few hours Facebook shut it down, claiming “unusual account activity,” and thereafter provided a very opaque and confusing process to allow us to clarify the payment method and pay for the “boost,” which was repeatedly unsuccessful.

    Please help us get the word out on Tracy Legal Defense #TracyvFAU in any way you can. Thank you for your support!


  2. I called River Bend very early this morning, Kevin answered with ” hello”
    which took me a bit by surprise, as I was expecting “Riverbend Funeral Home.” I then asked “Is this Kevin Riley?” And he said ” no, this is Kevin Davdson” and I askd if Kevin Riley was the same as Kevin Davidson?” He tried to convince me they were different people, then said ” I bought the company in 2010.” I ended up by reading this entire article and he said ” it’s shoddy reporting” We ended the conversation after I told him something to the effect ” indictments are coming, and said ” goodbye Mr. Riley”

    I talked to Memorial Park Cemetary for over an hour ( located in my hometown) and they told me there are subcontractors like Kevin but they never bill the client! She also had a 2009 Funeral Home book which listed all funeral homes, she said and sent me a copy, their license number for Hartford Trade Service was 26108.

    1. Thank you, Kelley, for the phonecall. The man pretending to be Kevin Davidson accuses me of “shoddy reporting”? LOL

      As I stated in my post, the website ConnecticutCorps: Company Profiles of Connecticut, identifies Kevin Riley as the owner of River Bend Funeral Home.

  3. Such excellent research! There is something almost poetically incriminating about a crematory having had been “dissolved”. So many “oops” details constituting the Sandy Hook story. It seems the hubris of the conspirators was greater than their expertise and/or budget. What we may also be seeing are the false flags of older intel planners who haven’t completely grasped the complexity of sanitizing a paper trail which is penetrate at so many points by conscientious, fastidious researchers.

    It seems the gun-control cabal were (at best) B students while Dr. Eowyn and other fine researchers committed to the pursuit of truth were the overachievers who were intrinsically motivated.

    So either the gun-control crew don’t actually believe their own cynical agenda, or the goons at their behest have no artful attention to detail necessary to pull off a passable, plausible crime.

    There was a crime (many) at Sandy Hook, but it wasn’t murder. It was fraud. And by the national security state’s own draconian standards, it was also unequivocally terrorism: a government terrorizing its own people.

    My congratulations and profound thanks to the researchers who put together this bit of sleuthing.

    Let’s not forget that Guy Bannister’s office in New Orleans was one space with two entrances. Being on a corner, its two addresses seemed to indicate two businesses. But it was in fact a detective’s office (retired intel) and the Cuban resistance headquarters to which Oswald was concretely connected.

    Perhaps it’s an endless riddle…such as a bar doing business as DBA.

    Furthermore, the funeral director in question seems to have paralleled Clay Shaw/Clay Bertrand in being rather lazy with the whole alias activity.


  4. The creators of S/H really thought they had everything covered. I would like the scoop on Gene Rosen, has he moved, what is he doing and does he have a job? This is never ending and one of the players will talk.

  5. I wish someone would research Nancy Lanza’s friend who gave an interview at Sandy Hook, and an interview at the Boston Finish line, an interview at Watertown, and then showed up at the Wild Life Refuge in Oregon. Does she live in Atlanta and work for CNN?

  6. It seems that a rap sheet is a common denominator among the Sandy Hook players. I love Kevin’s “signature” on the death certificate. This article was a joy to read as it represents a rare breakthough of solid investigative journalism.

    It seems logical that no was willing to forge 20 death certificates for the children. However, Adam Lanza had no such protections. Someone had to concoct the paperwork, so Kevin was the perfect guy for the job. It woud be interesting to see the trail on the other adult death certificates, especially since it was rumored that Mary Sherlock renewed her teaching certification in 2014.

    1. Do Social Security death records substantiate that “27 people died at Sandy Hook”?

      Who would have entered them, the medical examiner?

      1. As I recall, there was something published by the New York Daily News that indicated that that newspaper had in their possession the “death certificates” of the Sandy Hook “victims.” Dr. Tracy, I believe, tried to contact that newspaper to see about getting that information but was stonewalled and received no reply. There was much subsequent evasive actions by the records officials of Newtown and other state and local governmental entities.

        Here is a quote from attorney Dean Hartwell’s book.

        Was 9/11 a Movie? Paperback – July 5, 2015
        by Dean T. Hartwell (Author)

        regarding his search for information about the alleged dead passengers of the four planes of 9-11.

        “It should be noted that the FBI, which gathered the names, also controlled the autopsies of the “passengers.” And the report of the autopsies is what is typically needed to obtain a death certificate and to place a name on the SSDI.”

        “Doctor” Wayne Carver controlled the autopsy info on the SH victims

        Then later in the book, Hartwell explains in detail the incompleteness and gaps in death data that is can be and is part of the Social Security Death Index [SSDI] track record.

        Hartwell came up with basically a big zero score when trying to find out which alleged 9-11 passengers had clear SSDI records.

        “When someone dies, the death must be registered with the local or state vital records office within a matter of days. The vital records office can then issue copies of the death certificate, which you may want or your personal records or to handle a deceased person’s affairs.

        Dachsie says … The local of state vital records office sends the death certificate information to the federal Social Security Death Index department and that department enters the data on the database.

        Who Prepares the Death Certificate?

        The funeral home, cremation organization, or other person in charge of the deceased person’s remains will prepare and file the death certificate. Preparing the certificate involves gathering personal information from family members and obtaining the signature of a doctor, medical examiner, or coroner.”

        We know about the lyin’ Wayne on MHB so there are a million ways from Sunday to falsify all of the records associated with death certificates and SSDI records on the SH vicsims.

        1. I was always under the impression that in order to be listed on the SSDI, that first you had to die, and then a family member or heir had to APPLY FOR THE SS DEATH BENEFIT. For years the death benefit was a paltry $250. That may have been a substantial sum when SS was first started, but it is peanuts today. In other words, just because you died did not automatically get you listed on the SSDI. If this is wrong, please supply me with the facts, and only the facts please.


          The Social Security Death Benefit is now $250, but that is not what we are talking about here.

          As the Wiki article indicates, there ts the Social Security Death Index SSDI and there is “the Death Master File” — two different databases.

          The Death Certificate gets recorded with the appropriate state or local agency which in turn reports the death to the Social Security Administration. I am not sure what the name of the state or local agency is but it is Office of Vital Records for county or state.

          There will be no death benefit unless the SS Admin. receives and records the death certificate so that the deceased names appears on the Death Master File.

          For purposes of 9-11, and Sandy Hook and Boston, I think this quote as taken from Was 9-11 Was a Movie book by Dean Hartwell applies.

          “But it should be noted that there is no way to verify any particular name from the four alleged flights of 9/11 because the chain of evidence in the government in producing these names is unclear. And, as noted above, the SSDI list simply does not prove or disprove much about strangers.”

          There are many reasons, valid and invalid reasons, a dead person’s name may not be on the SS records. It has about an 85% accuracy rate.

          I suggest you seek out “only the facts” by calling the SS Administration.

        3. Correction to my previous posting which is in moderation.

          The SS Death Benefit is now $255.

      2. Gil, I would assume either the M.E. and/or the mortician would be responsible for notifying the Social Security Administration. It would not be the family, since this is ripe ground for fraud.

        I do not believe ANYTHING controlled by ANY level of government substantiates ANYTHING conclusively.

  7. Why, at 9:33 EST are there only 11 comments to this post? What has happened to the MHB frequenters who routinely devoured Sandy Hook material posted here? This is disconcerting to me.

    Where is Patrick, Lophatt, Ric, Anne B., Musings and many others who, in the not so distant past, have been latched onto anything SH like pit bulls?

    It is my sincere hope that they are all well, very busy and unable to continue to contribute to this blog. I know how it is. However, their insights are sorely missed by this man.

    Man, this life is so damn strange. Anyway….

    In November of 2015 I was working in the home of a former Philadelphia police officer and detective. At some point, and I do not remember specifically why, the subject of Sandy Hook came up. I bluntly stated to him that Sandy Hook was a ruse. His immediate response was bewilderment. He quickly, however, rebounded to claim that he had “seen the crime scene photos.” I pressed him further.

    “Did you see the dead bodies?” I asked.

    “Yea, I saw all of the crime scene photos.”

    “No, did you see the dead bodies?”

    “Well, no….”

    He went on to explain to me that he was involved with some program which involved a specific type of law enforcement training, which he had shared with a peculiar order of nuns who had a presence in Sandy Hook on the day of the alleged massacre.

    I continued to challenge his position. He was intrigued.

    There was a point where I was working in another room in this mans house, when I heard him shout, “You gotta be kidding me! This guy is an asshole!” I ran into his office to see that he had pulled up, on his office computer, a Fellowship of the Minds Sandy Hook article which had to do with the nuns present that day.

    “This asshole is trying to say that these nuns are men!”

    I tried to calm him down, but he went on to point out that Eowyns suggestion that the habits worn by the nuns that day were no longer worn, was “bullshit.” He showed me and printed out an article by that particular order of nuns that those habits were still in use.

    The article he printed out indeed showed that the habits worn by the nuns captured on film in Sandy Hook were still in use.

    Here is where I really get pissed. What that former Philly cop printed out for me has disappeared from my possessions. I cant find them anywhere. So I cannot recall the specific order of nuns. I do, however, remember that they were connected to St. Rose of Lima in Newtown, Ct., and that these nuns were crying out for gun control ( I will find the material mentioned, and disclose to MHB audience).

    Here is where this story turns.

    I show up for work at this former Philly cops house in the same time period, and he pulls me aside.

    “Joe, you are not going to believe this.” So I am thinking…not good.

    He goes on to tell me that he brought up the subject of Sandy Hook with his wife (why never before…?), who went on to tell him that her sister and husband ( air force) who live in Connecticut, do NOT believe the official story.

    So this ended with the former Phiily cop telling me that he would continue to look into Sandy Hook, and would keep me posted.

    I am convinced that he was sincere in that he had a genuine curiosity regarding Sandy Hook, but somewhere along the line he was discouraged to continue. By whom I do not know.

    He has not contacted me since doing the work in his house.

    I believe he has encountered the same roadblock every other Sandy Hook curiosity seeker has encountered. But what is particularly troublesome to me is that this seeker has an official capacity, in that he has many ties to the Philadelphia law enforcement community.

    Oh well, I guess if the truth isn’t honored in Newtown, I shouldn’t expect it to be in Philadelphia, Pa. either.

  8. In November of 2015 I worked in the home of a former Philadelphia police officer and detective. Shortly into the work the subject of Sandy Hook came up (I don’t remember why). He was bewildered when I told him flatly that Sandy Hook was a massive ruse. He went on to share with me that he, during the course of specialized training, had seen the crime scene photos. It wasn’t a hoax, he tried to assure me.

    “You saw the bodies?” I asked.

    “Yeah, I saw all the photos.”

    “No, did you see photos of the dead BODIES?”

    “Well, no, but I talked to one of the nuns who was there that day.”

    He was actually referring to the taller of the two nuns captured in a photo that day in Sandy Hook. He told me he was involved in some form of special training exercises which was shared with that specific order of nuns, whom he had had past experience with.

    He was emphatic that he was well acquainted with this specific nun, who was apparently on Riverside Drive that day.

    Later that day, obviously unsettled by my position, I heard him yell out from his office.

    “What an asshole!” he screamed. I ran into his office.

    “This guy is a friggin asshole!” He had pulled up Eowyns website with the Sandy Hook nuns. “He is trying to say the habits these nuns are wearing aren’t in use anymore, and that they may even be men! This guy is #*%@’ed up!”

    He pulled up the Nuns website to show that they still wore the same habits. He even showed me a picture of him with the nuns from the website.

    After calming him down I told him that researchers aren’t perfect. We make mistakes, but that to throw the baby out with the bathwater would be foolish, ignorant and dangerous.

    The next morning he pulled me aside and told me that he had brought this up with his wife (which I found terribly strange, nearly 3 years later?).
    He said his wife was a bit taken back, because she had recently discussed Sandy Hook with her sister, and that she and her Air Force husband, who live in Ct., both believe Sandy Hook was a fraud.

    This former Philly detectives juices were flowing. He seemed genuinely disturbed that he may have fallen for a titanic deception.

    NOTE: This Philly cop had printed out a number of articles from this particular order of Philadelphia nuns, which detailed their presence in Sandy Hook that day. All of what he printed out has disappeared from my possessions. I do not misplace research material. I turned my library upside down looking for these articles. A quick internet search turned up zilch.

    If and when I find them I will provide the link.

    Anyway, these nuns were gung ho for gun control. The Philly cop assured me he would address Sandy Hook with these nuns and get back to me.

    That was 5 months ago.

  9. The last trip I made to Sandy Hook (July, 2015) I visited St. Rose of Lima cemetery, a stones throw from the school. Five of the children are “buried” there. Daniel Barden, Olivia Engel, Catherine Hubbard, Caroline Previdi and Jessica Rekos.

    There are five headstones, from left to right; Previdi, Barden, Rekos, Hubbard, Engel. The Previdi headstone does not have any dates, nor the full name, just “Previdi.” All others have full names and dates.

    When I was there, an older man and woman were tending to one of the graves. I watched from afar, waiting to see the graves close up.

    I found it VERY strange that the five child “victims” would be buried next to each other. However I am sure most would cite this as a beautiful thing.

    If you Google you can see where all the children are allegedly buried, except for Josephine Gay, Dylan Hockley, Madeleine Hsu, Chase Kowalski, Grace McDonnell and Avielle Richman.

    No Cemetery information is given for these six.

  10. James, I have attempted twice now to post my interactions with a former Philadelphia police officer/detective while working in his home, regarding Sandy Hook.

    Is there some reason WHY you have not posted them? I am bewildered by this.

  11. this is some good info. I have recently had a ‘holy cow’ moment about this whole mess that seems to be further proof this did not happen as advertised.

    the fake close-up pix of the evacuation of the children posted in the press were not the only pix taken that day. there are other pix floating around showing parents standing around the edges of the parking lot (wearing summer clothes too) waiting for the kids to finish their evacuation practice. at least that is what they appear to be doing. I recently saw these other pix again on a u.t. video.
    according to the official version, these 500+ k-4 kids evacuated the school about 10:04 am. I figured this was a reasonable max. amount of time to keep this many kids focused and contained. I checked the local weather reports and the temp. was in the low/mid 20’s that night. the high that day was in the mid 40’s much later. it was a cold day.
    I was watching this whole thing unfold from the news chopper above on my office computer as I prepared my eoy bridge insp. reports. I watched from about 9:45 until lunch time. NOBODY except cops, not even ambulances were allowed anywhere near the school while I was watching. the road was blocked down at the fire station.
    if this was a real evacuation, and these were real parents waiting for their kids, how the heck did they get to the school. NOBODY came up that road from the fire station until much later. the parents were supposedly picking up their kids at the fire station.
    wonder what ever happened to the news footage from those choppers? the only things moving in the school parking lot all morning were the cops stationed in the parking lot trying to stay warm. no parents or children were ever seen anywhere near the school. so how did these parents pictured (not even wearing sweaters) in the evacuation pix get up to the school at a time when ambulances weren’t even allowed there yet?
    all those parents and nobody had a cell camera and thought to record this historic event? yeah, I believe.

  12. HTS, Making bodies disappear without the hassle of licensing or accountability since 2012! HTS, we take out your trash. Just don’t die alone.
