    Out of the box: Personal effects.

    After the traumatic death of a loved one, his or her things live on. Clothes, hairbrushes, books, cell phones, journals, toothbrushes, CDs, plants, recipes, jewelry, memorabilia add to the burden of loss. It falls to the survivors to deal with these personal effects, and it is never easy. Take, for instance, the case of Amy Lawton, the youngest daughter of George Hochsprung from his first marriage to Janet (Walzer) Hochsprung. Amy gave an account of her experience receiving her step-mother’s personal effects in a New York Times article, dated April 28, 2013. Here is an excerpt from that article (boldface is mine): “Last week the pain and grief from these…

    Cinderella’s Fake News Forum: #1

    Occasionally, Cinderella will be posting items on the Sandy Hook 12-14-12 Event that give you, the reader, a chance to exercise your wits in determining whether or not a news story or social media item (posts, Tweets and messages) is true or false. Most will be small items not previously closely examined in the continuing Sandy Hook narrative. Some may seem trivial to the point of pettiness, but Cinderella has found that many tiny hanging threads eventually unravel a whole sweater, especially if the sweater is cheaply made. We’re calling these little threads Cinderella’s Fake News Forum. Cinderella will do her best to provide  background, research and commentary to aid…

    Revisiting a storybook character.

    As Sandy Hook records another 12-14-12 memorial event, Cinderella has been opening her scrapbook and examining old pictures and clips. It never hurts to review our history, and, not surprisingly, others are following suit in an effort to understand what really happened that day and in the weeks and months (and years) preceding it. One photo that appeared in the pages churned out by the mainstream press continues to haunt: Principal Dawn Lafferty Hochsprung dressed as a storybook fairy queen in a high-necked bridal gown while holding a star-tipped wand. The full-length photograph can still be viewed with a Google image search and a little luck. Here it is below:…

    In search of Dawn.

    Where lie the remains of Dawn Lafferty Hochsprung, former principal of Sandy Hook Elementary School, reported to be slain by Adam Lanza during the Sandy Hook massacre of December 2012? The answer isn’t found in Mrs. Hochsprung’s obituary, which lists the burial site as “unknown.” We hit another impasse in a Huff article about Mrs. Hochsprung’s funeral on December 19, 2012. We’re told that it took place at Munson-Lovetere Funeral home in Woodbury, Connecticut, but the funeral and burial were “private.” That left us with our assignment, one that took us to Broadalbin in Fulton County, New York during two trips earlier this year. Broadalbin is where George and Dawn…

    When “mum” was the word: July 19, 2012.

    Cinderella was going through an old trunkful of Sandy Hook Elementary school memorabilia and came across this scrap. Mr. Halbig’s recent appearance in a hearing room in Connecticut reminded her, so in we went, rummaging until we found it. It’s all about an email exchange on July 19, 2012  between Dawn Lafferty Hochsprung, the former headmistress of Sandy Hook Elementary school, and the school janitor, Kevin Anzellotti. Many of you know about it. But for the sake of new SH event skeptics, go here to Memory Hole blog for a quick jog. You’ll find this tete-a-tete: On the morning of July 19 Hochsprung emails Anzellotti: “How does this look? [Apparently…
