Overlap between “Smiggles” and “Kaynbred”

Adam Lanza used the moniker “Kaynbred” on wikipedia when he obsessively updated the profiles of mass shooters. He used the name “Smiggles” on forums to talk about them. In several instances, the content he posted was identical.

Kaynbred’s changes to the Wikipedia page for Kip Kinkel:

kipkinkel-edits01

Before Lanza made his changes, the “weapons” section of the article read:

9 mm Glock 19 pistol, Ruger .22 semi-automatic rifle, Ruger .22 pistol

Lanza apparently felt this was insufficient in its detail, and refined it to read:

9 mm Glock 19 pistol, sawn-off .22LR Ruger 10/22 rilfe, .22LR Ruger MK II pistol

Indeed, the note he left explaining the reason for his update reads “Specifying the weapons”.

This edit was made on December 9th, 2009.

In the thread* “Guns and You,” on September 13th, 2011 on ShockedBeyondBelief, Smiggles emphasized the same information about Kip Kinkel’s arsenal:

Kip Kinkel used a rifle and two pistols. sawn-off Ruger 10/22 (one 50-round magazine) Glock 19 (one shot while being tackled) Ruger Mark II…

The overlap occurs again when Kaynbred edits the Wikipedia page for Richard Farley. There, he again clarifies details about the shooter’s arsenal. The original page read:

At about 3 p.m., Richard Farley loaded up his various guns, including a .38 automatic, a .357 Magnum, a .22 rifle, and two shotguns. He put on an ammunition vest, inserted earplugs, and put on leather gloves. He then walked into a side door by shooting the glass, and began shooting while heading toward Black’s office on the second floor. Several employees were killed by his shots as he made his way through his former employer’s building. Arriving at Black’s office, he opened her door which she slammed in his face. He fired one shot through the door, which missed Black. The second shot hit her left shoulder and sent her unconscious to the floor. Farley moved on.

Kaynbred’s contributions, this time, are voluminous, and indicate a particular interest in this event:

At about 3 p.m., Richard Farley loaded up his various guns, including a Benelli semiautomatic shotgun, a .22-250 rifle with a scope, a pump-action shotgun, a Sentinel .22 WMR revolver, a Smith & Wesson .357 Magnum revolver, a Browning .380 ACP pistol, and a Smith & Wesson 9mm pistol. Along with having a foot-long buck knife and smoke bomb, he put on an ammunition vest, inserted earplugs, and put on a leather glove.

Carrying over 1000 round of ammunition with him, he then approached the building while shooting toward bystanders. He entered into a side door by shooting through the glass, and shot at employees he encountered while heading toward Black’s office on the second floor. Several employees were killed by his shots as he made his way through his former employer’s building. Arriving at Black’s office, he opened her door which she slammed in his face. He fired one shot through the door, which missed Black. The second shot hit her left shoulder and sent her unconscious to the floor. Farley moved on.

This mirrors Smiggles’s interest in Richard Farley, expressed in a forum post to the thread “Lifetime Movie About Lauren Townsend’s Mother?” where he expressed admiration for the TV movie about Richard Farley, based on it’s level of detail and accuracy:

The best movie I’ve seen about a mass shooting was from Lifetime. Other than the issue of portraying Richard Farley as a cute engineer instead of a creepy technician, its immense amount of accurate details warrants its “based on a true story” status.

Later in the same thread, Smiggles endorsed Farley as “the ultimate stalker”:

In another post on December 2nd, 2011, Smiggles supplies a link to the California Supreme Court appeal document where Kaynbred gleaned the information that was added to the Wikipedia page (the inclusion of the buck knife, for example):

SHL-Smiggles-Farleyfootage

Indeed, news reports after the Sandy Hook shooting would note how Lanza seemed to have taken Farley’s rampage as a blueprint for his own:

There are striking similarities between the ESL massacre and the Sandy Hook shooting more than 20 years later. Farley, carrying more than a thousand rounds of ammunition on a vest and wearing earplugs, shot through the glass of a doorof ESL, gunning down employees as he encountered them in the building.

All of these were steps that Adam Lanza would repeat at Sandy Hook.

At this point, it is quite apparent that Adam Lanza, “Kaynbred”, “Smiggles”, and the “Greg” who called AnarchyRadio in 2011 are all the same person.

      kinda weird lol my name is bryan also and im interested in lanza as well

      • Bryan says:

        ha! I wish we could get a hold of more pictures of Adam. Preferably high school age and up. They found an entire box of photos in his house yet they have only released the one of him as a child surrounded by firearms and that wasn’t even found in the box of photos. Also I find it weird that during the video of the walkthrough of the house there are pictures of adam and ryan as kids but only pictures of ryan as an adult graduating from school. I was bummed about that because I was hoping to see more pictures of him. the only one was from the ID underneath the bathroom sink and that’s a tiny picture of just his face. I did however find a video on YouTube that was very interesting. After learning that Adam had videos of himself playing DDR on his computer I was hoping they would possibly be made public, or any of the other non-violent videos/photos he took of himself. While I was searching around online for new information I found this video on YouTube, taken at a Danbury Theater on June 02, 2012 (which is at the same theater Adam was said to go and play DDR for hours every weekend, at around the time it was said he was last seen there). The video is of someone (probably adam) playing DDR. If you look at him his clothing is the same style that I’ve seen in pictures and read of descriptions of him and his haircut is the same. If you look at the facebook posts people say that he is there all the time playing the game and that he is really good at it. Both which have been stated in the police reports. Unfortunately you don’t see his face so im trying to find someone to definitely verify that it is in fact, Adam. Take a look, tell me what you think. Please pay no attention to the name of the video because some people are stupid. just look at the comments on the video.

    Real research, documented facts…
    Or “sandy hoax” with bloviating hucksters like Fetzer?
