Was the Same Woman at the Aurora, Sandy Hook, and Boston Tragedies?

Was the Same Woman at the Aurora, Sandy Hook, and Boston Tragedies?

An image circulating online claims to show the same woman at three different tragedies: The Aurora, Colorado theater shooting, the Sandy Hook shooting, and the Boston Bombing.

The claim is false.

The identities of all three women are known, and they are not the same person. Let’s take a look at the image being circulated, the claim associated with it, and the identities of the women in the photos.

 

Aurora Shooting

The woman in the photograph is Amanda Medek. Some press photos taken of her sitting on a flight of steps included the caption, “Amanda Medek, who is looking for her sister Micayla, sits outside Gateway High School, Friday July 20, 2012, in Aurora, Colo.”

Here is the well-known photo of Amada Medek, along with a clearer portrait.

Amada Medek at Gateway High School after the Aurora shooting, and in an undated candid.

Sandy Hook Shooting

The woman shown in the Sandy Hook photo above is Carlee Soto, who had just found out her sister was dead. A caption for the iconic photo read: Carlee Soto learns that her sister Vicky Soto is among those killed in the school shooting.

Boston Bombing

The official caption for the image being circulated stated: Emma MacDonald and two friends were photographed at a vigil for the Boston victims.

We could not locate a candid of Emma MacDonald, but below is are two images of her snapped at the Boston vigil:

Bottom Line

The same woman was not photographed at three different tragedies. The images show three different women who were photographed crying at the tragedies. The identities of each of the women are known, and they are completely unrelated.

    james…you are a fukin joke! nice try bud..nobody was allow to see any bodies so its very funny how you had access. The school WAS closed for years…how does it feel to know that the majority of people online who look at this stuff know better and are calling you out?? pos

    The uncomfortable but inescapable truth is that the December 14, 2012 Sandy Hook event was a complete hoax, a staged event. Think about it — was anything about Sandy Hook consistent with our own experiences and personal observations?

    Remember all the inconsistencies in the official story? The actions, events, and behavior completely inconsistent with a real attack? For example,

    1. The “Check in” sign near the fire station for the crisis actors to, well, check in;

    2. The absence of the 600 students who allegedly attended the “school” (no more than 20 or 25 were ever shown at one time);

    3. The total departure from standard emergency procedures by emergency workers and medical personnel;

    4. The lack of any evidence that “shooter” Adam Lanza even existed;

    5. The awkward interviews, such as with the smiling children who said they didn’t hear any shots and with “Medical Examiner” Wayne Carver;

    6. The laughing parents, including parents whose children were allegedly killed;

    7. The strong evidence that the school had been closed years before the “attack” and was being used as a warehouse;

    8. The immediate tearing down of the school after the “attack”;

    9. The raw news helicopter footage of people walking in one door of the infamous fire station, emerging from another door, walking back to the first door, then emerging from the second door in an endless loop to create the impression that more people were present (hundreds of anxious parents!) than were actually there; and

    10. The harassment of independent journalists who attempted to interview persons in Newtown.

    One could go on and on and on.

    As for the three photos of the traveling mourner, there is even stronger evidence of a crisis actor appearing in multiple roles. The same woman appears as a witness to the “bombing” in Boston and later as a witness to the “shootout” in Watertown; she was also used as a witness at Sandy Hook — youtu(dot)be/JeXG3uQu8ZU?t=171 — and later played a Syrian on CNN News.

    It is difficult to accept just how extensive and well coordinated the deception promoted by the government and corporate media is — but we must accept it if we are to understand what we are really up against.

    You are a liar!!! There is a video on you tube showing one of the supposed grieving fathers laughing and joking with a news crew member!! Then when he was told he was on the air…he got into character and tried acting distraught!!! He was a crisis actor!!! Nobody died!!! You are a LIAR!!!

  • jaguar

    Yeah right!!! Everybody and their hamster claimed they had a friend whose cousins sisters brother had a child that died at sandy hook!!! You are a liar!!! Sandy Hook School was closed for years before Sandy Hook shootings due to Asbestos!!! And now the school has been bulldozed… You are a LIAR!!!

  • Richard Harney

    The same girl was just spotted in the LA shootings today. ANOTHER HOAX!!!

  • Pat

    Why all this name calling and insulting is beyond me. The bottom line…many innocent people died because of mentally sick, evil people. Many, many family members and friends were/are hurting. Did any of your senseless banter help even one of these poor individuals??? No.

    • Tomas Anderson

      PAT…you are not getting it…nobody dies man. period.

  • susan

    You saw the body? That’s amazing since no one else did! Even parents didn’t identify their child(ren), they just took the word of the police. One set of parents intervied, said they didn’t see their child. Really? Your child is dead and you just put it in a coffin, close it, and bury it with out seeing your child and saying goodbye? BS. There were no bodies to be seen, that’s why. Where are the crime scene photos? Columbine has them why not Sandy Hook? Too many inconsistencies in the story. May have happened but not the way they said. Do some research into the whole story and don’t beleive what the mainstream media tells you. learn for yourself.

    Which Child. Don’t be shy.

  • vinny criss

    The people that believe and spread this rubbish fall into the same profile as the outcasts that perpetrate these mass killings. Losers, no life, easily led, and better off institutionalized.

    • Tomas Anderson

      Actually I think there is a big difference man…one is committing
      high treason at the highest level of manipulation and deception…and the other is simply exercising the essence of free speech…your emotions got in the way of your logic man.

  • Mark A Raymond

    The photos theyre showing of the supposed individual people dont even match the ones from the incidents. Can we say diversion. The pics from boston are not even matching up to the person they say it is and the actual photo during the event. It dont take a forensic scientist to see that the face is way different from actual pics to incident pics. You cant change the bone structure of your face even in a stressfull incident. And now the same woman showedup in the colorado shooting again. Just saw it on the morning news here in Ky. so if these idiots want to lie to us and say that theyre different, they are lying.

  • waffles

    It’s not Tom Cruise.

  • He’s right on two of them

    He’s right about the bottom two being the same. Loot at the dimple at the end of her nose. Also, look at the slight snaggle tooth of her upper-right tooth. The two bottom women are the same. The top, chubby actress is a different actress.

    The NWO is real. These are all staged, media events to envoke fear in the populace … Ahhh, the slow, steady march into the NWO corporate/police state.

  • Conspiracythis

    It’s not the same girls. Digital measuring and comparison have been done and the noses and ears are all different.

  • Boredgimp

    I do not agree or disagree with the findings shown i think the one thing people do more often these days is chalk things up to mere coincidence & take what their told is gold in their hands rather then looking down & seeing its purely fools.
    Whatever happened to reporting no matter the outrageousness?
    Would Watergate have ever come to fruition if a person like “Deep throat” didn’t come forward? Also what are the chances of it being the same girl? calculate, map quest, look deeper, check out a yearbook or two, contact your local newspaper & bring it to them & maybe (Just Maybe if they aren’t to busy they will look into the reasoning behind the incidents as well rather then the cover story so commonly dulled out these days then ever to the masses) then the truth will actually become evident as evidence is actually collected rather then speculating or using a computer program that isn’t even admissible in a courtroom on faces that are primarily covered..
    It seems like horrible tragedies are becoming more frequent & the reporters, detectives & outcry for justice become whispers rather then roars. No more are the days when the truth comes out no matter the circumstance as that is i think the saddest part the lack of not only empathy but also personal responsibility. We blame the president? the police? but not the parents? rather then the opposite which should be the case. Until the mirror is facing all of us, everyone these horrible tragedies will become more common place and maybe thats the saddest fact of all…… The problem is us it’s not gun legislation or more police but the two words nobody does anymore (TAKE RESPONSIBILITY)… I am so tired of hearing blame being passed around like hot potato but maybe thats the sad age we are living in.

  • Junior

    I’m not against thinking that these three events are strange. But anyone who thinks the ladies are the same person is seriously blind. They don’t have the same body types, face structures, teeth, or hair lines even. I’m not trying to debunk any theories out there other than the one that states these totally different looking women are the same person. Come on people, put your glasses on.

  • Barry

    Just goes to show, the tinfoil hat crowd DOES NOT CARE ABOUT FACTS. These 3 girls could be interviewed together, at the same time, sitting right next to each other, and the tin foil hatters will still insist it’s the same one girl. Very pathetic.

    • Insomniac

      Barry, you get these girls lined up beside each other for an interview and I will eat my tin foil hat!! Lol. I think it’s the same girl in all three photos.

  • Seriously?

    Does anybody even really look at these girls. I mean, come on. The first girl is a little on the chubby side. I say that with no offense, but to lose that amount of weight and then go to CT and be perfectly skinny with no signs of weight loss and a different shaped face. Then you have the Boston girl who is just different completely. A very homely looking woman whose features are nothing in comparison to the previous two and none of their body shapes match up in any fashion. I’m sorry, but if you were in a tragedy and found out one of your loved ones had died, don’t you think you would be freaking out on the phone as well? I know I HAVE when it has happened to me.
    And good call Prettylucky, anyone ignorant enough to think CO is a four hour drive from the east coast would be ignorant enough to believe in these what do they call them… “crisis actors”
    Get a life, not just people in here but anyone to nit pick if a female looks like another. Get a grip on the fact that a tragedy happened and focus on that and the lives that were affected instead of “Is this the same woman?”

    • sandy

      Idiots have been saying this for generations, yet here we are not freaked out for your paranoid “reality”.

      • jaguar

        So are you saying the government never lies and always tells us the truth no matter what??? I have some beach front property in Arizona to sell to you !!! Ignorance is not bliss!!!

  • Heretic

    Bull. They’re called “crisis actors” and they’re provided with a new set of credentials for each job. Digital measuring will confirm that they are all the same woman. There are many more that have been outed without a shadow of a doubt.

    • Jonathan

      “Digital measuring”?

      The girls look NOTHING alike, having seen these new photos. Why must you insist on clutching for straws? I find it barbaric and insensitive that you would spread such lies, ignoring the grief these women went through/are going through.

      • Dustin

        To say they looking nothing alike is also barbaric and insensitive, since the sandy hook and boston marathon girl look very similar.

        • Tomas Anderson

          thats because they are the same girl.period.

      • Brian

        You’re very easily swayed aren’t you??? How are you so sure these ‘new photos’ are even of the same people? Where did this site get it’s credibility and photos? If you think they can just pick pictures of three random girls and identify them, get their full name, AND find a close up picture of them….you’re VERY gullible!

        The ‘new pictures’ aren’t of the same girls in the tragedy pictures. Why don’t you compare those…

      • jaguar

        You need to do research!!! Watch the movie BATMAN…DARK KNIGHT RISES…You see the word AURORA in bright RED letters on a building and you see the name SANDY HOOK on a map they are pointing to!…that movie Dark Knight Rises came of the same night Aurora movie shootings happened and before Sandy Hook happened!!! Coincidence??!! I think not!!! People grow a brain!!! They were both planned events!!!

      • Tomas Anderson

        JONOTHAN…stop taking everything spoon fed to you for face value…ie..what makes you thing this guy comparisons are accurate and not disinformation??….the picture matching is not accurate to begin with.

  • PrettyLucky

    I can promise you that Aurora, CO, is much more than a 4 hour drive from both Boston and Newtown, CT. Maybe a 4 hour PLANE RIDE, but you definitely couldn’t make it to Colorado in 4 hours from there!

  • JR

    Suzy you need to repeat Kindergarden!!! 4 hours drive??? your not too intelligent are you?4 hour flight from co to ma… dumbass

  • OhTheIrony

    JR, looks like Suzy isn’t the only one who needs to repeat KINDERGARTEN! Yes, Suzy is an idiot, but YOU’RE not too far behind for questioning someone’s intelligence while proving a lack of your own. 😉

  • Michael

    OhTheIrony, just because one can’t spell doesn’t mean they are an idiot. Einstein couldn’t spell to save his life and he was a genius. JR might just be dyslexic and spelling words how they SOUND, which is what most dyslexics do. Also dyslexics tend to be of above average intelligence. I should know I am dyslexic and was teased for being stupid. The stupid people are you who don’t know what they are talking about.
