We now know of four condolence/donation websites and pages that were created 1-3 days BEFORE the massacre. Please note that the date when a website or webpage is created is not up to the person setting it up. Instead, the date is automatically set by the webpage’s server, such as Facebook, WordPress, etc.
1. “R.I.P. Victoria Soto” Facebook Page
Victoria Soto was a teacher at Sandy Hook Elementary School who was killed that terrible morning of December 14, 2012.
Soto’s friends and family (presumably) created a touching “Rest In Peace Victoria Soto” Facebook page.
The only problem is the page was created on December 11, 2012 — three days before Soto was killed.
After somebody discovered that and the discovery went viral, excuses were made that the December 10 date was a glitch.
United Way extends our most sincere condolences and prayers to all those families affected by the devastating events in Newtown/Sandy Hook, Connecticut. While the eyes of the world may be on Newtown/Sandy Hook, to several staff, volunteers and contributors, Newtown is home. We will stand with the community and everyone affected directly and indirectly by this tragic event as we face the days and weeks ahead.
The only problem is United Way’s Sandy Hook School Support Fund webpage was created on December 11, 2012, three days before the massacre.
Ed Thomas of Daily Sheepledid a Google search for ‘Sandy Hook United Way’ and found a cached page dated December 11, 2012, stating “United Way extends our most sincere condolences and prayers to all those families affected by the devastating events in Newtown/Sandy Hook, Connecticut.”
