Bing Cache Shows Local Paper Reported Sandy Hook Shooting Before it Happened

The Richard Dawkins Foundation reports the extraordinary case of Logan Dryer, 5, a student at Sandy Hook Elementary school who became so anxiety ridden that his mother pulled him out of school just two weeks before the deadly massacre. And these were not unspecific anxieties. As his mother related:

I remember the principal, Dawn Hochsprung, getting on her knees and saying to Logan, ‘We love you and this is a wonderful place.’ Logan screamed back saying, ‘No, no! It’s not a safe place. I am scared.’

The decision to take Logan out of school, a decision that may have saved his life, was taken at the suggestion of the family doctor.

But it seems that Logan Dryer is not the only psychic connected with the Sandy Hook massacre. Quite extraordinarily, the local newspaper, the Newtown Bee, published their first report on the massacre the day before it occurred.  (It would be interesting to know how the Richard Dawkins Foundation would explain that.)

Here is a screen shot of the story, which was dated December 14, 2012, but which, according to the Bing cache (which may or may not be available — the text of the cached page is available here), was published on the web on December 13, 2012, the day before the massacre. (If the link to the Bing cache bring up a page, hit your browser’s refresh button.)

The story relates that:

Sandy Hook School Principal Dawn Hochsprung told The Bee that a masked man entered the school with a rifle and started shooting multiple sho[t]s – more than she could count – that went “on and on.”

 But it seems the Bee’s unnamed psychic reporter didn’t have 20:20 vision of the future, for according to MSN:

Dawn Hochsprung, the slain principal of Sandy Hook, died confronting the gunman on Friday. Newtown’s Board of Education chairwoman explained that administrators were leaving a meeting when the gunman forced himself into the school and ran toward them, at which point it’s reported that the principal lunged at the gunman, trying to overtake him.

So it seems that the bit about the Ms. Hochsprung being interviewed by the Newtown Bee after the event was mere fiction. Still, getting the main fact right, that there was a massacre coming down, was good.

But perhaps there is an explanation for the apparently premature reporting of the massacre. If some techie knows how the Bing cache could have misdated the story, it would be good to hear from them.

Yet we know that the interview with Dawn Hochsprung was a pure fabrication because she was killed before there was the slightest possibility of a newspaper interview. So it seems most reasonable to suppose that the whole thing was fabrication based on foreknowledge of the massacre to be carried out the following day.
