Dead Principal Who Gave Statement -- Screen Capture
It appears the Newtown Bee has pulled their story directly quoting principal Dawn Hochsprung after the attack. (She was later reported as one of the first who was murdered.) Here is a link to a screen capture of that article for anyone interested in saving it:

[link to imageshack.us]

Alive and well.


"Sandy Hook School Principal Dawn Hochsprung told The Bee that a masked man entered the school with a rifle and started shooting multiple shows – more than she could count – that went "on and on."



[link to www.dailymail.co.uk]

One of the first murdered.


"An open intercom broadcast the murder of school principal Dawn Hochsprung, 47, to terrified students at Sandy Hook Elementary School providing teachers and students with vital time to run and hide."


The article originally ran at this web address:

No retraction, no correction. The article was just pulled.

It should not be swept under the rug.

Retraction And Apology

An early online report from the scene at the December 14 shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School quoted a woman who identified herself to our reporter as the principal of the school. The woman was not the school's principal, Dawn Hochsprung, who was killed in the Friday morning attack. The quote was removed from subsequent online versions of the story, but the original story did remain in our online archive for three days before being deleted.

We apologize for whatever confusion this may have caused our readers and for any pain or anguish it may have cause the Hochsprung family.

I know. But, I wouldn't have believed any excuse they gave anyway, at this point. When you take a statement you ask for the person's name. I once worked at a newspaper. That's how it works.

Okay, Mr/Ms investigative reporter, how about locating the mystery woman who identified herself as the principal and inquiring as to why she would do such a thing?

If it happened as reported, one might consider that she was part of it, no?

It's apparent that they are just assuming it was not her because the official story says she was one of the first murdered.

Obviously, it is a giant red flag.

It's just bullshit and most of us know it. The principal was probably killed after the fact because she saw too much...but oops, she already alerted the local news as to what was going on.

Two minutes is just not enough time for one guy to have done all this killing in the office, a classroom, and then another classroom where he allegedly tried to get to children hiding in a closet.
