The psychiatrist who treated Sandy Hook shooter Adam Lanza has been arrested for sexual misconduct with a 19-year-old patient, for distribution of controlled substances, and for questionable billing practices and patient records retention. When detectives investigating the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School talked with Paul Fox in 2012, he told them that he had destroyed any records he had of his treatment of Lanza — two years too soon.
According to the Hartford Courant, the New York Daily News, and the website AbleChild, Paul Fox - the psychiatrist who treated Sandy Hook mass-murderer Adam Lanza - has been arrested for, among other things, conducting a year-long relationship with a 19-year-old client. Fox was prescribing numerous – “three or four” – mind-altering drugs to the patient, according to AbleChild, as well free drug samples. The patient’s mother reported that, “she was turning into a zombie.”
