    Movie theater shooting trial: What have pre-trial proceedings revealed about James Holmes' notebook

    AURORA, Colo. - Based on past hearings and court documents we know a great deal about the evidence that will be presented during the Aurora movie theater shooting trial, but one piece of evidence has remained almost completely concealed: the defendant's notebook.

    Inside the Mind of the "Batman" Killer..... A 2 page article....snippets below

    'Batman' Killer Studied Brain Disorders Before Mass Murder
    CENTENNIAL, Colo. — Apr 26, 2015, 10:55 AM ET
    By SADIE GURMAN Associated Press

    He was a sought-after neuroscientist-in-training, but he was falling apart. He told a classmate he wanted to kill people, prosecutors say. He fell out of favor with his professors, who suggested he find a new career. He stopped seeing his psychiatrist, then sent her text messages so threatening that she alerted University of Colorado campus police. He even mailed her his journal, in a package with burned $20 bills.

    Prosecutors say the meticulous plotting shows Holmes was deliberate and calculated, and that evidence suggests he knew right from wrong. For example, Holmes searched online for "rational insanity," and took haunting selfies the night of the shooting, sticking out his tongue and smiling with a Glock under his face.

    Graduated with highest honors from the University of California, Riverside, and then applied for elite doctoral programs. In one essay, he wrote of mentoring a schizophrenic as a summer camp counselor. The boy "vacuumed the ceiling of our cabin. These kids were heavily medicated but this did not solve their problems, only create new ones. ... I wanted to help them but couldn't."

    In another, Holmes hinted at how his own mind worked, writing that he was "fascinated by the complexities of a long lost thought seemingly arising out of nowhere into a stream of awareness. These fascinations likely stemmed from my interest in puzzles and paradoxes as an adolescent and continued through my curiosity in academic research."

    Meet James Holmes Trial Jurors

    When the trial of James Holmes, accused of murdering 12 people and wounding 70 in an Aurora, Colorado, theater gets under way today, his fate will be decided by a jury that includes a retired Army ICU nurse, an explosions expert, and a plumber.

    One of the jurors used to be a victim's advocate in Aurora, Colorado, the city where the theater shooting happened, but she left in 2010. Had she stayed in that job she would have found herself counseling traumatized survivors the early morning of July 20, 2012, instead of deciding the fate of the man accused of murdering 12 and injuring 70.

    Trial begins Monday for James Holmes in Colorado movie theater massacre

    CENTENNIAL, Colo. – James Holmes was growing volatile well before he put on a gas mask and body armor, strapped on a rifle, shotgun, pistol and ammunition, and slipped into a midnight premiere of the Batman film "The Dark Knight Rises."

    He was a sought-after neuroscientist-in-training, but he was falling apart. He told a classmate he wanted to kill people, prosecutors say. He fell out of favor with his professors, who suggested he find a new career. He stopped seeing his psychiatrist, then sent her text messages so threatening that she alerted University of Colorado campus police. He even mailed her his journal, in a package with burned $20 bills.

    Knowing right from wrong: James Holmes trial begins

    CENTENNIAL, Colo. - A prosecutor declared Monday that two psychiatric exams found Colorado theater gunman James Holmes to be sane as he meticulously plotted a mass murder, considering a bomb or biological warfare before settling on a shooting so that he could inflict more "collateral damage."

    sbm
    Defense lawyers say Holmes was in the grips of a psychotic episode and could not tell right from wrong when he went on the rampage. His parents, Robert and Arlene Holmes, in pleading for his life, have called their son a "human being gripped by a severe mental illness."

    King said that 20 doctors who examined him in custody as well as the therapist who saw him before the shootings all agree he suffers from schizophrenia, a psychotic brain disease that skewed his thoughts and compelled him to kill.

    Movie theater shooter asks if children were hurt, during interrogation; Video played in court Monday

    ARAPAHOE COUNTY, Colo. - During the police interrogation of the movie theater gunman, it appears as if James Holmes asks an officer, "There weren't any children hurt, were there?"

    Holmes asked that question during the interrogation, which occurred about two hours after the shooting.
