The hoaxers were completely debunked on their claim as documented here:
The fraudulent contention of the hoaxers fell apart when actual research was conducted and it became quickly apparent that the individual in the photo was Special Agent William Aldenberg of the New Haven FBI:
Aldenberg's name was on the back of his vest:
Further evidence, the agent is bald and obviously not Mr. Wheeler:
An email was sent to to the Special Agent in Charge of New Haven Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation on 12-29-15 asking the FBI to confirm that the photograph is of Special Agent William Aldenberg at the Sandy Hook Shooting on December 14, 2012. S.A. Aldenberg was himself contacted; although he has chosen not to respond.
Over the next couple of weeks, two more requests were sent to the Community Specialist requesting confirmation, going so far as to point out that this Special Agent appears on TV interviews and providing the photo of the agent's name "emblazoned on his back". The third request "came clean" that this information was wanted for debunking purposes and basically pleaded with him to identify the agent.
I could understand if this SA operated in secret on same level and I would very much respect that and not even publish this article; however, SA Aldenberg does not. S.A. Aldenberg is a public figurehead out of the New Haven Office, is in the press often, and walks around with his name on his back.
Sandy Hook Facts is not giving up on this and if there are any updates, we will provide them.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation could easily do the same. Special Agent Aldenberg and Special Agent in Charge Ferrick apparently would rather let a Sandy Hook victim carry their load.
With all due respect, if anyone from the FBI wants to "Ranger Up" a little and stop forcing this parent to carry your load, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
