Defamed by the devil: Sandy Hook parents take on Alex Jones' lies

In a segment from April previous year on Jones" radio show, which was called "Sandy Hook Vampires Exposed', he claimed an interview De La Rosa gave to CNN's Anderson Cooper after the shooting was fake. "They glitch", Jones said, per a transcript of the show in the lawsuit.

The two lawsuits filed Monday accuse Jones - a noted conspiracy theorist who has claimed the Sandy Hook Elementary school shooting was a hoax - of peddling lies that have resulted in death threats, HuffPost reported.

InfoWars and Jones have allegedly pushed since the day of the 2012 shooting that the massacre did not happen, that it was staged by the government and that the parents of the victims are participants in a cover-up.

Leonard Pozner and Veronique De La Rosa, parents of Noah Pozner, filed a lawsuit against Jones, InfoWars and Free Speech Systems. The New York Times reports the suits were filed in Travis County District Court in Austin, where Jones resides, by Houston lawyer Mark Bankston.

Heslin said on that show through tears that he "held my son with a bullet hole through his head" before he was buried.


Heslin's lawsuit names Shroyer for making the "heartless and vile" claim that Heslin lied during an interview with NBC News' Megyn Kelly about holding his dead son's body.

Jones has repeatedly questioned whether 20 children and six adults were gunned down in Newtown, Connecticut, on December 14, 2012, deriding the shooting as a "hoax" concocted to chip away at Second Amendment rights.

Soon after the segment, Infowars reporter Owen Shroyer told viewers that the father's claim wasn't possible because the coroner identified victims through photos and not in person.

"The whole thing is a giant hoax". In 2017, InfoWars accused De La Rosa of being an actor, rather than the parent of a child killed in the CT mass shooting, according to the complaint. "Those statements in 2017 were part of a long history of lies peddled by Jones".

The parents made a decision to sue more than five years after the attacks because they had concluded Jones has no intention of leaving them alone, Bankston said. Jones didn't reply to a request for comment sent through his website.
