As more details have emerged, though, we are getting a clearer picture of Nancy Lanza. Adam’s barber said that not only was she not negligent, she shadowed him and barely let him speak.  His former babysitter, Ryan Kraft, claims that she warned him to never turn his back on her son, not even to go to the bathroom.
