As reported earlier, Newtown, Connecticut was rocked to its core yesterday when 20-year-old Adam Lanza opened fire in Sandy Hook Elementary School, killing 27 people, 20 of whom were children.

User @joearmstrong24 posted this note on Twitter, claiming it was written by a young victim, moments before her passing.

The note is signed Ellie and is addressed to her mother, whom she would never see again. The girl's father is described as a cancer patient, for more drama, hence more retweets. She tells him they will meet up in heaven “for a coffee.”

4,000 shares later, that phrase is what tipped Twitter users off to the fact that the note is a fake. It most likely wouldn't have been used by a dying, elementary school student from Connecticut. Also, "mummy" and "tumour" are spelled as they would be in Britain.
