Sandy Hook parents sue Alex Jones for calling massacre a hoax

Both families are represented by Houston attorney Mark Bankston, who filed a previous lawsuit against Jones and Infowars for misidentifying the shooter in the recent Parkland school shooting.

Almost six years after gunman Adam Lanza killed dozens of children and faculty members at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, a major conspiracy theorist has been sued for his incendiary comments. The first of which occurs during an Infowars segment, aired last April, entitled 'Sandy Hook Vampires Exposed.' In the show Jones references an interview given by De La Rosa, after the murders, with CNN's Anderson Cooper.

Last May, Jones had to settle a lawsuit with Greek yogurt manufacturer Chobani for claiming the company was importing "migrant rapists" in Idaho.

Both lawsuits are seeking more than $1 million in damages from Jones and his Internet news show Infowars. Six educators were also killed, along with the gunman and his mother.

In a 2017 interview with Megyn Kelly, Heslin spoke of holding his dead son "with a bullet hole through his head".

Jones later took umbrage with this statement claiming that: "Quite frankly, the father (Heslin) needs to clarify, NBC needs to clarify, because the coroner said none of the parents were allowed to touch the kids or see the kids and maybe meaning at the school". Infowars reporter Owen Shroyer is also named in one of the suits.

Our clients have been tormented for five years by Mr. Jones' ghoulish accusations that they are actors who faked their children's deaths as part of a fraud on the American people.

Shroyer said it couldn't have happened because the victims were identified through photographs - but the suit says the bodies were ultimately turned over to the families.
