Florida Atlantic University canned James Tracy, an associate professor, for harassing the parents of a child killed during the Sandy Hook school massacre. He claimed the shootings never happened.
A twisted professor at a Florida college was finally fired Wednesday after waging a sick three-year conspiracy campaign against the parents of one of the children killed in the Sandy Hook massacre.
James Tracy, a Florida Atlantic University professor, was let go after years of wild claims that the shooting was staged. The nutty professor received notoriety in 2013, after he wrote a blog that the Sandy Hook massacre in Newtown, Conn., may have been a hoax.
He then began targeting and harassing Lenny and Veronique Pozner, claiming that their son Noah never existed.
Veronique Pozner, mother of Sandy Hook Elementary school shooting victim Noah Pozner, walks to his gravesite on Dec. 17, 2012.
In an op-ed piece written last week for the Sun Sentinel newspaper, the couple outlined the depth of Tracy’s lunacy.
“In fact, Tracy is among those who have personally sought to cause our family pain and anguish by publicly demonizing our attempts to keep cherished photos of our slain son from falling into the hands of conspiracy theorists,” they wrote. “Tracy even sent us a certified letter demanding proof that Noah once lived, that we were his parents, and that we were the rightful owner of his photographic image.”
The Ponzers’ six-year-old son Noah was one of 20 children who were killed when gunman Adam Lanza stormed the Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012. The unhinged shooter also killed six staff members at the school.

Conspiracy theorists have alleged that the tragedy was a hoax and the Obama administration staged the “event” in order to enact strict gun control measures.
Tracy was a regular commenter on the Sandy Hook Hoax Facebook page and issued a statement responding to the Ponzers on Sunday.
“The Pozners, alas, are as phony as the drill itself, and profiting handsomely from the fake death of their son,” he wrote.
FAU announced Tracy, an associate professor in the School of Communication and Multimedia Studies, was terminated in a statement on the school’s website.
