A grandmother in Tulsa, Okla., has reportedly made it her mission to harass the families of victims who were killed in the mass shooting that took place at Sandy Hook Elementary School back in 2012.

According to Business Insider, Kelley Watt has reportedly spent much of the last 10 years conducting "research" to uncover what she believes really transpired on that horrific day in 2012. Per the news outlet, Watt believes mass shootings are considered to be "false flag operations intended to push gun control legislation through the United States government, despite the fact that no significant legislation has been passed in response to such shootings."

Speaking to Slate's Elizabeth Williamson, Watt weighed in with her perspective ahead of the release of the book titled, "Sandy Hook: An American Tragedy and the Battle for Truth."

"I just had a strong sense that this didn't happen," she said. "Too many of those parents just rub me the wrong way."

As part of her so-called research, she reportedly sends messages to the victims' families. Under the username "gr8mom," Watt reportedly demanded that Lenny Pozner —who lost his 6-year-old son Noah doing the Sandy Hook shooting— "prove to the world you've lost your son."

According to Watt, she spends a great deal of time researching in hopes of connecting the dots between baseless theories about the shooting. Per Business Insider: "Some of her theories include: that the photos of the shooter's bedroom were too barren to have a teenager living in it; that Chris and Lynn McDonnell – whose seven-year-old, Grace, was killed in the shooting – didn't cry enough for parents who had just lost a daughter; and that other parents were 'too old to have kids that age.'"

Despite having absolutely no evidence to support any of her baseless theories, Watt still refuses to believe that she may be wrong. Watt's daughter has also expressed concern about her mother's obsession with conspiracy theories.

"There's a great deal of narcissism in this idea that 'everyone's got it wrong and we're in this select group of people that knows.' It would explode her own persona to allow any doubt to come in," Madison said of her mother's accelerated theories. "Her whole identity has been built on this for so many years. She's invested so much."
