Before James there was Jimmy.
Jimmy Holmes was well liked, was social and was brilliant. He had numerous friends.
He was happy.
But then something happened.
A downward spiral.
This is part of the story I’m working on for this Thursday about the suspect at the center of the Aurora theater shooting case.
Earlier this month I spent several days in California with the intent of showing our viewers who James Holmes was and his life leading up to his move to Colorado.
We are finally putting this piece together, which includes interviews with a teacher and childhood friends.
We also tap into the perspective of a local criminal forensic psychiatrist who will offer his fascinating opinions on the Holmes criminal case and the suspect’s mentality.
While I may receive some criticism from viewers for profiling the suspect, I do believe there remains significant interest in the behavior of Holmes leading up to the shooting.
A gag-order and sealed documents continue to cloak many details, including alleged motive and intent.
I hope to provide a little piece of the puzzle on Thursday.
