ARRESTED: Deranged Sandy Hook Truther Who Stole and Desecrated Memorial Signs

The culprit behind the thefts of two memorial signs dedicated to Sandy Hook victims has been caught. Andrew Truelove, 28, contacted the Daily Banter under the pseudonym “Mark Felt” to claim responsibility for the thefts of the two 50-pound vinyl signs honoring Grace McDonnell and Chase Kowalski, two of shooter Adam Lanza’s 26 victims.


When the Banter asked for evidence, Truelove sent photos of the missing signs…and his middle finger.


In each instance, Truelove had contacted the parents of the child to let them know that Sandy Hook was a hoax, and their children “never existed.” The “truther” is of the opinion that, since he has not see any dead bodies, and the parents have, according to him, never cried on camera, the entire Sandy Hook “story’ must be a lie.

The Banter’s Chez Pazienza assisted police in uncovering Truelove’s identity and locating him. “He was deliberate. He wasn’t ranting,” Pazienza said of his call with Truelove. “However, he was saying things that made no sense whatsoever. At the same time, he was having the type of conversation that you and I would have about going to Starbucks for a coffee.”

Truelove was arrested in Herndon, VA, where he was renting a room. Grand larceny charges are pending in both New Jersey and Connecticut, where the signs were stolen.

    Generalizations are mental calisthenics for the intellectually lazy.

    Clearly, an Alex Jones fan

  • Nick

    He’ll end up with probation. He will continue his rants and ramblings. These nuts are very rarely ever REALLY punished.

  • Bob

    To what end would this “hoax” be perpetrated. No new gun laws of any consequence, and none coming down the pike in the forseeable future. Why be even more hurtful? Looks like he is getting what he deserves, and probably a little more.

    • https://www.facebook.com/dONTbEdICK Jeffrey Edmonds

      exactly, to what end. That is what I have always asked. They have been crying about someone wanting to take their guns for decades and no one has even tried.

      The most Ironic thing about these nuts, is that they refuse to acknowledge that Ronny Reagan signed the most sweeping gun control law in recent history.

      How do they keep this knowledge from making them question their own reasoning?.

      • JFischer

        ‘What Reagan did is not the same as what Obama wants to do,’ is how they phrase it in their heads.

        When Republicans do or propose X, that means X is good and right.

        BUT, let a Democrat propose the same thing, and suddenly X is evil and wrong. Heck, the Democrat X is NOT the same as Republican X (and if you give them a minute, they’ll find a bit of phrasing to brandish as ‘proof’).

    • Old-Fashioned Quaalude

      Conspiracy nuts never think that deep or far ahead. They ain’t got all the details (yet), but they know, THEY KNOW, that it’s all false flag ops what ends with That Kenyan takin’ away America’s guns an’ makin’ us all gay with the fluoride and the vax and whatnot.

  • Yea really!

    Scariest thing is who is teaching these people all this hate and lies. Cannot all Fox News. The person teaching this crap needs to be found.

    • JFischer

      It’s all those assholes who call everything awesome (such as the Moon landing) a hoax, but everything bad (Challenger and Columbia disasters, 9/11, Sandy Hook) is a government conspiracy. For some reason, they find it easier to believe they’re victims than to accept that the universe doesn’t care.

        “I used to think it was a terrible thing that life was so unfair. Then I thought, ‘what if life were fair, and all of the terrible things that happen to us came because we really deserved them?’ Now I take great comfort in the general unfairness and hostility of the universe.”

      Who’s teaching them this “truther” crap? Two of the primary suspects are The Blaze (Glenn Beck’s psychobabble channel) and InfoWars (Alex Jones’ own psychobabble fountain).

    Well, he’ll have fun. Even convicts have kids, and a dim view of those who would try and hurt them… Even those who have already died.

    • https://www.facebook.com/mark.lysle1 Mark Lysle

      And I’m sure he’ll be thanking Glenn Beck or Alex Jones every time he drops the proverbial soap.

  • Missy L

    He is spot on. He is not the one responsible for you having to live in fear. That is the media and these false flag scare tactics. You sheep are eating it up!! Yum yum!!

    • Alex Corbett

      You’re ridiculous. Seek help

    • X


    • Chas

      It is certainly obvious you or your family did have to endure what the families of 26 victims faced.

  • ddl

    I don’t think he’s sick, I think he’s an ahole that needs to be jailed for a nice long time.

  • https://www.facebook.com/edward.j.belanger Edward J. Belanger

    He needs to be sat down and forcefully shown ALL the pictures of the crime scene, every single dead body and if he looks away for even so much as a second, should have to do 1 full year in prison for EVERY second that he looks away. THEN, he needs to be given five years on TOP of that just to make sure that he learns his lesson.

  • Deborah Dietz

    I hope something terrible is done to him in his first incarceration in this matter, and I hope he is unrecognizable in short order.. I have run out of compassion for the mad things that are making us all live in fear and hatred in this nation. ENOUGH.

  • http://gravatar.com/kimwimgoddess otto katz

    If found guilty, will this necessitate his losing any guns he may own? In either state?

  • E.A. Blair

    He can go to prison and we can insist that he never existed.

  • Highlander

    Truelove, eh? Absolutely no irony in that name whatsoever!

  • Richard Bradley

    Ok, let’s stop calling them truthers. There is no truth here they spout lies, and half-baked conspiracy theories. Using truth in anything they do just gives them false credibility.

  • Chas

    Kudos to law enforcement for tracking down this NRA representative.

    • Ian

      NRA representative? Now anyone who is crazy and a criminal has to a member of the NRA? I’ll be the first to admit there are a lot of crazies who also are pro-gun but your post shows me that for everyone that I wish didn’t share some of my views, that there is one on the anti-gun side just as wacked out.

      • NRA LOL

        LOL @ NRA representative. Clearly the NRA is the new “Thanks Obama” meme… except I think most of you actually believe that the NRA is involved in stealing signs.

        Someone stole signs! – Thanks NRA!
        My beans cooked too long! – Thanks NRA!
        My hot water heater broke down! – Thanks NRA!
        I ran out of soap in the shower! – Thanks NRA!

      • Chas

        I am willing to wager there is an NRA sticker affixed to his pickup truck’s window.

        By the way I am a non-NRA card carrying gun owner so I guess that makes me another gun carrying wacko.

  • Lester Milroy

    I hope they put a mental health check on this idiot. The sick mind and these stupid conspiracy theories are just too much. Where do people come up with stuff? To desecrate a memorial for these victims is just wrong!

  • paul fredine

    if he tries to cop an insanity plea i hope it fails miserably. but he’ll probably get a gig with alex jones since their delusion trains appear to run on the same track.

    • Random Guy

      Let’s hope they crash into each other.

    Good guy with a gun, I’ll wager.

    • NRA LOL

      Does one need to own a gun to steal signs? Your deductive reasoning astounds.

      • http://gravatar.com/pienoceros pienoceros

        No, but one does need to understand why these idiots think Sandy Hook was staged to use the punch line “Good guy with a gun”, effectively.

  • Bob K

    On another site RWNJs were claiming this twit was a Democrat committing some kind of conspiracy to blame conservatives because he used the name Mark Felt who was (in their minds, anyway) a Democrat.

    • https://www.facebook.com/Armybrt59 Carol Pullum

      That’s funny. A conspiracy theory about a conspiracy theory. These nut jobs are wound up just a bit too tight.

    • Liz

      They try disown all of their criminals.

      • E.A. Blair

        If a crime is committed by a Republican, it was a lone actor; if a crime is committed by a Democrat, it’s part of a conspiracy. I though everybody knew that.
