The Smoking Gun :Felon who claimed to be gunman Adam Lanza’s uncle is collared

DECEMBER 26–A convicted felon who traveled to Newtown, Connecticut and masqueraded as the uncle of Sandy Hook Elementary School gunman Adam Lanza has been arrested on a federal probation violation charge, The Smoking Gun has learned.

Jonathan Lee Riches was busted late last week and booked into the Chester County jail. Riches, 35, has been living in West Chester, Pennsylvania since his release earlier this year from federal prison, where he spent a decade in custody for conspiracy and wire fraud.

On December 16, two days after the school massacre, Riches drove to Connecticut and sought to visit the home of gunman Adam Lanza. Riches, who videotaped part of the trip and uploaded clips to his YouTube page, was turned away from the Lanza family’s street by a police blockade.

Riches, however, did turn up at a makeshift memorial site in Newtown, where he identified himself to reporters as “Jonathan Lanza,” uncle of the school shooter. As reported by the New York Daily News and other media outlets, he told journalists that the killer had been taking Fanapt, an antipsychotic drug prescribed for the treatment of schizophrenia. As photographers snapped away, Riches (seen below) dropped to a knee and feigned praying for the young victims.

According to a U.S. District Court filing, Riches–who is serving a five-year federal probation term–is not allowed to leave Pennsylvania’s Eastern District judicial boundaries without permission from a judge or his probation officers.

When Riches’s federal probation officer learned of the ex-con’s car trip to Newtown (and the existence of his YouTube travelogues), he drafted a report noting that he had “reason to believe that the supervised releasee has violated the terms and conditions of his supervision.” As seen in the below video, Riches’s auto contained dolls to which he affixed photos of Adam Lanza and the gunman’s older brother Ryan.

    Barracuda, was there any indication whatsoever, why this jerk off did this??? What was his purpose? I can’t figure this one out, was he the ower of the car that had the AR 15 in the trunk that was suppose to have killed all those kids? Any speculation on your part as to why he did this? This entire operation stinks. You even have a state police guy threatening bloggers for exercising free speech. The whole thing reeks of false flag.

    I hardly doubt this guy is anything but a gov. Patsy, Baracuda u r smarter than that, the popo said we will investigate and prosecute any mis- information and mentioned social media. It is a scare tactic, they want to shut our free speech up. Sandy Hook is getting all the alternative news & media coverage it so deserves, and people r not buying this 1. I would loved to have been a reporter that day the popo press release, the question should have been. “ARE YOU GOING TO INVESTIGATE, ARREST, AND PROSECUTE YOUR OWN POLICE DEPT.? Talk about mis-info 1st. Ryan Lanza 2nd. Mom was a teacher at the school 3rd they were killed w/223 semi- auto 4th nope .223 was in trunk 5th some1 buzzed him in & he was dresses in full body armor w/4 guns ( now who would buzz that person into a school). So talk about dis- info the police are the WINNERS…. Then we have actors, bad ones, then a pathologist w/a last name CARVER, r u kidding me, he does autopsies and his name is CARVER, no way, then just when it could not get more bizarre here comes Anderson Cooper (VANDERBILT ) is his real name, & BLOODLINE, W/an owl, moloch the worshipped owl of CHILD SACRIFICE. We haven’t even touched on both Lanza & Holmes both dads are to testify on the LIBOR SCANDAL, the largest monetary scam in World’s History. Mrs. Lanza is also a now labeled nut case cuz she was a PREPPER. 6 months ago the FEMA put out commercial, have a plan, have a bag w/the whole emergency thing playing out in a families home, but now PREPPERS r crazy, terrorist. We also haven’t touched on the whole list of common things 2 do w/a DARK NIGHT RISES, the ad campaign for that batman was released 12-14-2011 where the map was rolled into a canister like w/a t-shirt in it, then aurora listed in movie, sandy hook in movie, NEW TOWN, NEW CENTURY theater. SANDY HOOK, HURRICANE SANDY. I COULD GO ON BUT I FEEL CARPAL TUNNEL. I didn’t talk about the sick movie from 2000 the sandy hook lingerie massacre, or the Illuminati card end game. Now a genius de-coded the map & it really makes sense. 1 thing I’m unsure if any1 has heard but when in the dark knight rises, the guy puts his hand on sandy hook, Gordon get a GPS ON IT, WE HAVE 18 hrs. To bring it down. They might really mean 18 days, he says this exactly when he points to Sandy Hook, 12-14 day of sandy hook,+ 18 days is, Jan. 1, 2013 as possibly as early as midnight, does anyone know if there is more to this, could this be y the movie is called a, DARK NIGHT (they spell KNIGHT) RISES, Could it be NEW YEARS EVE, we have the word NEW, AGAIN. People please stay home on New Years Eve w/your families. That alone by not visiting N.Y. City ( if something happened there, u have NEW) again would send a message, and a lot of tourism dollars away from Mr. Control himself, Bloomberg. Sorry so long, I’m worried for us all. Baracuda, I always read ur BIN STORIES, cuz I know ur AWAKE.
