No SSDI for One Sandy Hook Massacre Victim

Posted on the 02 February 2013 by Eowyn @DrEowyn

On January 20, I did a post on the startling information that Social Security Death Index, as conveyed by the website GenealogyBank, says alleged Sandy Hook mass murderer Adam Lanza had died on December 13, 2012 — a day before the massacre.

The Social Security Death Index (SSDI) is a database of death records created from the federal government Social Security Administration’s Death Master File Extract. Most persons who have died since 1936 who had a Social Security number and whose death has been reported to the Social Security Administration are listed in the SSDI. Unlike the Death Master File, the SSDI is available free from several genealogy websites. The “state of issue” refers to the state that had issued the Social Security number.

The SSDI is not error-free. WSMV.com reports in 2012 that Social Security mistakenly declares about 1,000 people dead every month who aren’t, according to one government report.

After my post on Adam Lanza, a reader sent FOTM an email asking if SSDI has death records on the 20 children and 6 adults whom Lanza allegedly had killed in Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14. So we looked into this. Here’s our report.

According to genealogybank.com, SSDI has death records on all but one of the 26 Sandy Hook victims:

  1. Charlotte Bacon: age 6; born 2006; died 2012; state of issue (SOI) New Jersey.
  2. Daniel Barden: age 7; b. 2005; d. 2012; SOI New York.
  3. Rachel D’Avino: At first we couldn’t a SSDI for her, but when we conducted a re-search for “Rachel Davino” (instead of “D’Avino”) we did find her SSDI: age 29; b. 1983; d. 2012; SOI Connecticut.
  4. Olivia Engel: age 6; b. 2006; d. 2012; SOI Connecticut.
  5. Josephine Gay: age 7; b. 2005; d. 2012; SOI Maryland.
  6. Dylan Hockley: age 6; b. 2006; d. 2012; SOI Maryland.
  7. Dawn Lafferty Hochsprung: age 47; b. 1965; d. 2012; SOI Connecticut.
  8. Madeleine Hsu: age 6; b. 2006; d. 2012; SOI Connecticut.
  9. Catherine Hubbard: age 6; b. 2006; d. 2012; SOI Connecticut.
  10. Chase Kowalski: age 7; b. 2005; d. 2012; SOI Connecticut.
  11. Jesse Lewis: age 6; b. 2006; d. 2012; SOI Connecticut.
  12. James Mattioli: age 6; b. 2006; d. 2012; SOI Connecticut.
  13. Grace McDonnell: age 7; b. 2005; d. 2012; SOI Connecticut.
  14. Anne Marie Murphy: age 52; b. 1960; d. 2012; SOI New York.
  15. Emilie Parker: age 6; b. 2006; d. 2012; SOI Utah.
  16. Jack Pinto: age 6; b. 2006; d. 2012; SOI Connecticut.
  17. Noah Pozner: age 6; b. 2006; d. 2012; SOI Connecticut.
  18. Caroline Previdi: age 6; b. 2006; d. 2012; SOI Connecticut.
  19. Jessica Rekos: age 6, b. 2006; d. 2012; SOI Connecticut.
  20. Avielle Richman: age 6; b. 2006; d. 2012; SOI California.
  21. Lauren Rousseau: age 30; b. 1982; d. 2012; SOI Connecticut.
  22. Mary Sherlach: age 56; b. 1956; d. 2012; SOI New York.
  23. Victoria Soto: age 27; b. 1985; d. 2012; SOI Connecticut.
  24. Benjamin Wheeler: age 6; b. 2006; d. 2012; SOI New York.
  25. Allison Wyatt: age 6; b. 2006; d. 2012; SOI Connecticut.

There is no SSDI for one Sandy Hook victim: Ana Marquez-Greene, age 6. Ana was mixed-race; her father is jazz musician Jimmy Greene.

So we searched for her SSDI again, using two variations of her last name:

  • An SSDI was found for “Ana Delia Greene”: b. 1968; d. 2010; SOI Arizona.
  • A search for SSDI for “Ana Marquez” found 36 Ana Marquezes, none of whom was the age of Ana Marquez-Greene of Sandy Hook. 

The lack of a SSDI for Ana Marquez-Greene may be because her parents had not yet obtained a Social Security card/number for her.

L to r: Ana’s brother, Jimmy Greene, Nelba Marquez-Greene; Ana Marquez-Greene

We also came across this piece of oddity: The media used a photo of a different girl, Lily Gaubert, for Sandy Hook victim Allison Wyatt.

In this video, Cathy Gaubert says someone lifted her very much alive daughter Lily’s pic from her Flickr page and used it as Sandy Hook victim Allison Wyatt’s:

Only when Cathy Gaubert found out that her daughter’s photo was identified to be that of the dead Allison Wyatt that the media replaced the photo of Lily Gaubert with a photo of Allison Wyatt.
