Colorado Theater Shooter James Holmes Handwriting Analysis and Signature
CENTENNIAL, Colo. — In the weeks before a mass shooting at a packed movie theater that left 12 dead and dozens wounded, James E. Holmes received six packages from an online ammunition dealer, according to newly unsealed court documents.
Mr. Holmes has been charged with 166 counts of murder, attempted murder and other charges in the attack, which took place last July 20.
The shipments were among other details scattered through search warrants and affidavits that were unsealed here on Wednesday. Much of the information had already emerged in earlier court hearings.
James E. Holmes, after his girlfriend broke up with him and dropping out of a Ph.D program at the University of Colorado, Denver, he went on a rampage and killed 12 people and injuring 70 others at a sold-out Century movie theater in Aurora, Colorado in July 2012. While Holmes was in jail, he was hospitalized for attempting suicide multiple times. He is held without bail and has no previous criminal history. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty. james-homles-notebook-p26-smalljames-homles-notebook-p23-smalljames-homles-notebook-p22-smalljames-homles-notebook-p21-smalljames-homles-notebook-p20-smalljames-homles-notebook-p19-smalljames-homles-notebook-p18-smalljames-homles-notebook-p17-small On Tuesday, May 26, 2015, a spiral notebook was submitted into evidence in the murder trial against him. This notebook was mailed to his psychiatrist shortly after the the shooting. With this new evidence, Prosecutors hope that this would help jurors understand and enter inside the mind of Holmes. On the flip side, the Defense lawyers, while not disputing that he is the killer, want to argue that this notebook would help his plea of ‘not guilty’ by reason of insanity and revealing his ‘mental illness’. “The notebook is going to prove extremely important to both sides,” said David M. Beller, President of the Colorado Criminal Defense Bar. james-homles-notebook-p9-smalljames-homles-notebook-p8-smalljames-homles-notebook-p7-smalljames-homles-notebook-p6-smalljames-homles-notebook-p5-smalljames-homles-notebook-p4-smalljames-homles-notebook-p3-smalljames-homles-notebook-p1-smalljames-homles-notebook-p34-smalljames-homles-notebook-p33-smalljames-homles-notebook-p32-small james-homles-notebook-p31-small james-homles-notebook-p30-small james-homles-notebook-p29-small
