Teenage Adam Lanza would come in for a haircut about every six weeks without speaking or looking at anyone and always accompanied by his mother.
That’s according to stylists at a salon in Newtown, Connecticut, where Lanza gunned down 28 people last week, including his mother and himself.
He stopped coming in a few years ago, and employees at the salon thought he had moved away, said Bob Skuba, who reflected on his former client.
The comments from Skuba and his colleagues were among the first describing how the Nancy and Adam Lanza, who was 20, interacted with each other.
Lanza’s hard drive was damaged by the killer himself, rendering it unreadable and making it even more difficult to discern the CT shooter’s motive or motives.
Cutting Adam Lanza’s hair “was a very long half an hour. It was a very uncomfortable situation… [he would only speak] when his mother told him to.”
“I would say, ‘Adam, come on.’ He wouldn’t move,” Skuba said. “And his mother would have to say, ‘Adam, come on, he’s ready.’ It was like I was invisible.”
He said Adam also wouldn’t move from his chair after his hair was cut until his mother told him to. If a stylist asked Adam a question, his mother would answer.
“He would just be looking down at the tiles … the whole time,” Skuba said.
“It’s just weird that I actually touched him. That’s the worst part about it … he was in one of our chairs. I’d try to joke with him. He wouldn’t even look at me.”
Admittedly, he has a terrible thought: He wishes he’d have killed him.
“I wish I would’ve killed him then,” the barber confesses.
“Or he should have killed himself a long time ago.”
“He would have saved us all the trouble. He should’ve run in front of a bus, or some other type of terrible death he should’ve done to himself.”
“It would’ve saved all those kids and parents the trouble. I should’ve slipped and stabbed him by accident. It would’ve been a lot better for those people.”
Skuba’s not sure if he cut the hair of any of the slain children. He hasn’t let his mind go there. “I don’t really want to talk about that,” he said, sighing.
Holly Madison: Also Hospitalized With Morning Sickness!
Hey! What about me!
Nearly seven months pregnant with her first child, Holly Madison has been hospitalized due to severe morning sickness, the Playboy model confirmed via Twitter:
“Almost seven months and morning sickness took hold! Glad to be otherwise OK, though.”
Holly’s Tweet comes just after the British royal family confirmed that the pregnant Kate Middleton is suffering from similar complications, albeit much earlier in pregnancy.
Middleton, 30, was admitted to King Edward VII Hospital in London to receive treatment for Hyperemesis Gravidarium, or HG, which occurs in 1 percent of pregnancies.
HG is not threatening to the unborn child, but is not fun; it’s characterized by nausea, vomiting, weight loss, dehydration, lightheadedness and fainting.
It may be linked to women carrying multiple children, leading to immediate speculation that Prince William and Kate are expecting twins in the new year.
As for Madison, her health is improving, she says, adding “Thank you for all the get well wishes! Keeping me entertained – forgot to bring a book with me.”
Here’s wishing her nothing but the best – and rest – going forward.
