James Holmes
Cops Investigating
Sex Site Profile




A man claiming to be James Holmes created a profile on a popular sex website just days before "The Dark Knight Rises" massacre ... in which he described his penis as "short/average" ... and law enforcement sources tell TMZ investigators are now looking at the site to determine its authenticity.

"Holmes" created the profile on AdultFriendFinder.com July 5 -- and included a picture of himself with reddish, orange hair ... just as officials in Aurora, CO said he looked when he was apprehended Friday morning.

"Holmes" -- who used the screen name classicjimbo -- included a cryptic message on the top of the profile which reads, "Will you visit me in prison?"

Aspiring Sportscaster Among 12 Killed At Colorado Movie Theater; Last Blog Entry Was First-Person Account Of Eaton Centre Shootings [UPDATE]
July 20, 2012

Jessica Ghawi, who wrote and tweeted about hockey under the name Jessica Redfield, was among the 12 people killed early this morning when a gunman opened fire during a midnight screening of Dark Knight Rises in an Aurora, Colo., movie theater. KENS 5 in San Antonio received confirmation from family members. Ghawi had recently moved to Denver from San Antonio, according to the TV station. This was Ghawi's last tweet:
@jessespector MOVIE DOESN'T START FOR 20 MINUTES

— Jessica Redfield (@JessicaRedfield) July 20, 2012

Ghawi wrote for Busted Coverage and kept a blog of her own. Her last entry was an account of the Eaton Centre shooting last month in Toronto:

Questions remain over mass shooting at Batman screening in Colo.
July 20, 2012

 ::snipping2::
Aurora Police chief Dan Oates said a total of 71 people were shot, including the dead. Of the 59 people wounded, some were critically injured, though Oates couldn't give an exact figure.

Jennifer Seeger told CBS station KCNC the suspect first fired up towards the ceiling, as if to scare people, and then started spraying the audience. He pointed the gun directly at her; she ducked. "He had a gas mask on so I couldn't see his face," she said. "All I smelled was gunpowder in the air, and gas was getting to me."

The suspect marched up the aisle in the stadium-style theater, picking off those who tried to flee, witnesses said. Authorities said he hit 71 people. One of them was struck in an adjacent theater by gunfire that went through the wall.

"He would reload and shoot and anyone who would try to leave would just get killed," said Seeger, adding that bullet casings landed on her head and burned her forehead.
Within minutes, frantic 911 calls brought some 200 police officers, ambulances and emergency crews to the theater. Holmes was captured in the parking lot. Police said they later found that his nearby apartment was booby-trapped.
Authorities gave no motive for the attack. The FBI said there was no indication of ties to any terrorist groups.

Holmes wore body armor, used an assault rifle, a shotgun and a Glock handgun, Oates said. He said investigators are confident the gunman acted alone. A second Glock handgun was found in Holmes' car. All the guns were purchased legally between May 22 and July 6 at three Colorado stores, CBS News correspondent Bob Orr reports.

FBI agents and police also discovered Holmes' apartment was booby trapped. Authorities evacuated five buildings as they determined how to disarm flammable and explosive material.

"It's something I've never seen before," Oates said.

CBS News has learned that some loud music blaring from Holmes' apartment around the time of the attack allegedly was designed to draw a noise complaint from a neighbor, thus luring police into his residence, sparking a firebomb and diverting resources from the movie theater.

A federal law enforcement official said the suspect bought a ticket and went into the theater as part of the crowd. He is believed to have propped open an exit door as the movie was playing, put on protective ballistic gear and opened fire. The official spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the ongoing investigation.
After initially cooperating with police, Holmes has since gone quiet, leaving authorities still searching for a possible motive, Orr reports. Police confirmed that he had dyed his hair red, CBS News senior correspondent John Miller reports. New York City Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said Holmes told authorities he was "the Joker," a reference to one of Batman's arch-enemies. Kelly didn't reveal the source of his information, but he is reportedly close to Aurora Police Chief Dan Oates, who is an NYPD veteran.

Robots may defuse Colo. suspect's booby-trapped apartment
July 20, 2012

At least 12 moviegoers in Aurora, Colo., died early today when a heavily armed gunman opened fire at the midnight premiere of the new Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises. A 6-year-old girl was among the dead, and 59 people were wounded.

The suspect, identified as James Eagan Holmes, 24, a San Diego native, was arrested in the parking lot behind the Century 16 multiplex wearing tactical body armor and a gas mask. Police recovered a military-style assault rifle, a shotgun and two pistols.

Police say his Aurora apartment is "extensively booby-trapped" with chemicals and trip wires.

Update at 8:16 p.m. ET: The Medical Center of Aurora says it received 18 of the wounded and injured. One remains in the emergency room and seven were admitted, with two in critical condition and five listed as stable.

Family and friends of patients can call 303-873-5292 for information.

Swedish Medical Center also received victims, but it has not posted any updates on its "breaking news pages." The family-support line is 303-788-5000.

Update at 7:50 p.m: A law enforcement source tells CNN that Holmes' booby-trapped apartment is so intricately rigged and dangerous that robots may be used to disarm the flammable or explosive materials.

A decision about entering the apartment isn't expected until tomorrow.

"There's so much circuitry and collapsing circuits, it's a difficult process," the source told CNN.

Robots were sent inside earlier today to gather video.

At an evening news briefing, Aurora Police Chief Dan Oates said that the dwelling is booby-trapped with "various incendiary and chemical devices and trip wires," and that the operation could take days.

Four surrounding buildings were evacuated, Oates said.

Fire trucks that had stood by all day were withdrawn tonight.

Victim names emerge in Colorado rampage, as authorities plan to probe suspect's apartment Saturday
July 21, 2012

 ::snipping2::
Relatives of two of the dead confirmed late Friday that their loved ones were killed during the midnight showing of "The Dark Knight Rises."

The family of Alex Sullivan issued a statement confirming his death. He died on his 27th birthday.

Twenty-three-year-old Micayla Medek was also among the dead.

Her father's cousin, Anita Busch, says the sad news at least brought peace to the family.

The brother of Jessica Ghawi previously confirmed his sister's death.

The suspect, James Holmes, is in custody, though police have yet to gain entry to his apartment, which they say appears to have been booby-trapped with explosives. Police Chief Dan Oates said Friday evening that efforts to enter the apartment were postponed until Saturday, when more resources would be brought in.

"He looked like an assassin ready to go to war," said Jordan Crofter, a moviegoer who was unhurt in the attack early Friday, about a half-hour after the special midnight opening of "The Dark Knight Rises."

Holmes, used a military-style semi-automatic rifle, a shotgun and a pistol, stopping only to reload.

The suspect marched up the aisle in the stadium-style theater, picking off those who tried to flee, witnesses said. Authorities said he hit scores of people, with a few of the 70 victims suffering their injuries not by gunfire but in the ensuing chaos. At least one person was struck in an adjacent theater by gunfire that went through the wall.

 ::snipping2::
Authorities started to remove the bodies from the theater on Friday afternoon. Officials wheeled a black bag on a stretcher out of the front entrance, placing it in the back of a minivan. Ten people died in the theater, while two others died from their injuries later.

Oates said officers planned receive a list of those confirmed dead and meet with the family members of the deceased Friday night to tell them the fate of their loved ones.

Holmes enrolled last year in a neuroscience Ph.D. program at the University of Colorado-Denver but was in the process of withdrawing, said school officials, who didn't provide a reason. The school later said in a statement that he left the program in June 2012. ::snipping2::

As part of the advanced program in Denver, a James Holmes had been listed as making a presentation in May about Micro DNA Biomarkers in a class named "Biological Basis of Psychiatric and Neurological Disorders."

In academic achievement, "he was at the top of the top," recalled Riverside Chancellor Timothy P. White.

Holmes concentrated his study on "how we all behave," White added. "It's ironic and sad."

From a distance, Holmes' life appears unblemished, a young man with unlimited potential. There are no indications he had problems with police.

Somehow, the acclaimed student and quiet neighbor reached a point where he painted his hair red, called himself "The Joker," the green-haired villain from the Batman movies, according to New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, who said he had been briefed on the matter.

Authorities say Holmes arrived at the theater dressed in black, outfitted in a gas mask, ballistic helmet, vest and leggings, black tactical gloves and protectors on his throat and groin. He was armed with an assault-style rifle, a shotgun and Glock handgun.

Police said he started his attack by tossing two gas canisters into the theater, where he had bought a ticket for the midnight showing of "The Dark Knight Rises," the new Batman movie.

Aurora police ready ‘controlled detonation’ at home of alleged shooter James Holmes
July 21, 2012

AURORA, Colo. — As the names of the 12 victims of Friday’s mass shooting in a Denver suburban movie theater were slowly released by grieving families, federal and local bomb squads prepared Saturday to disarm an elaborate set of booby traps set up inside the apartment of the suspected shooter.

A law enforcement official said this would happen in three phases, for the three types of explosives that James Holmes left behind in his 800-square-foot apartment.

 ::snipping2::

 The apparent intent of all this, the official said, was “to kill and maim any first responders or anyone that came in there.”     The official said that authorities hoped to complete the touchy work of disarming the apartment by the end of Saturday.

Aurora Police Sgt. Cassidee Carlson said at a morning briefing outside the apartment building that the bomb experts may conduct “a controlled detonation” that could result in a fire, so fire trucks are stationed in the neighborhood. She said those living in the area would be notified via a reverse 911 call of a possible explosion.

Authorities disarm trip wire, first explosive deivce in Colorado movie theater massacre suspect's apartment
July 21, 2012

Authorities say they were successful in disarming a trip wire and first explosive device in the booby-trapped apartment of the suspect in the deadly shooting spree at an Aurora, Colo., movie theater Saturday.
 ::snipping2::
Aurora police Sgt. Cassidee Carlson says the booby trap was "meant to kill," the first person who opened the door to the apartment.

"This is some serious stuff that our team is dealing with," she said. Witnesses have reported hearing two small booms during the disarming process.

Holmes' apartment is believed to be loaded with explosives. Attempts to enter the apartment Friday were unsuccessful and police postponed efforts until Saturday.  The FBI, ATF and local authorities are working together to enter the apartment.

Sgt. Carlson said that authorities had broken the mission down into three phases and plan to carry them out Saturday.

"There are still unknowns, w're not exactly sure of everything that's in there" Sgt. Carlson said. The unknown includes jars that are believed to contain accelerates. Authorities say there are balloons filled with gun powder and bullets littered throughout the floor.
 ::snipping2::
Authorities say they will send a robot into the apartment.

The second phase will be to dispose of the aerial shells which will include placing the devices into sand trucks and taken to a disposal site for a controlled detonation. Authorities believe there may be up to as many as 30 shells.

The third phase will be the investigation of the apartment itself.

"There is no timeline, there is no end time,” Sgt. Carlson said. "We don't need to rush anything," she said.

James Holmes Adult Friend Finder sex profile believed to be authentic. Will you visit me in prison?





James Holmes Adult Friend Finder sex profile believed to be authentic. Will you visit me in prison?

Scallywag July 21, 2012 2

James Holmes on adultfriendfinder with what appears to be poster in the background.

James Holmes was high on prescription drugs hours before shooting.

A sophisticated rouse or the read deal?

Authorities are currently in the midst of verifying whether a sex site profile, Adult Friend Finder belongs to mass murderer James Holmes this evening.

The tip off came after reddit userscame up with what looks like to be a profile of a man claiming to be James Holmes created days before the ‘Dark Knight Rises’ massacre.

The profile includes a picture of a man bearing a close likeliness to that of James Holmes albeit with red hair as he was described at the time of today’s arrest. Even ominous was a cryptic message on the top of the profile which reads, ‘will you visit me in prison?’

Holmes profile says he is 6’0 and single with an athletic body. Yet FBI reports at present have Holmes at 6’3. What is also off about the profile is the registered birthday: Dec 10 1987 despite official reports that Holmes’ birthday is December 13 1987.

Other corroborating features also include the following:

The username “ClassicJimbo” includes Jim, which is a common short-hand for James. The user lives in Aurora, Colorado. The user is a “Gold” member, which seems to mean he could not have signed up just today (if this were a Reddit hoax).

Notes Holmes’ profile:

 ::snipping2:: Edit to snip article.  TMI Folks can read details at the link.  MB

According to the website, “Holmes” last logged in to the site sometime in the past 3 days.

“Holmes” posted 2 different photos of himself — including one shot in which he is posed in front of an image of a woman while wearing headphones.

Time will tell if the above account actually belongs to James Holmes or whether it’s some astute photo shopping on account of some talented reddit users.

It has been reported that James Holmeswas as high as a kite prior to walking into the cinema complex where Batman Dark Knight rides again was playing.

How high was he you wonder? Very high:

The report of “100 mg of Vicodin” is somewhat misleading, since all Vicodin pills weigh more than 100 mg. What the sources most likely meant was 100 mg of hydrocodone, the actual narcotic in Vicodin, which means Holmes took ten high dosage Vicodins, or twenty weaker ones. And yes, that’s a lot.

I'm not sure if this is real?

James Holmes
Reportedly Took Drugs
Before Shooting Spree
7/21/2012 7:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
James Holmes took Vicodin 2-and-a-half hours before yesterday's shooting rampage ... this according to a new report.

According to KMGH TV in Denver, Holmes took 100 mg of Vicodin late Thursday night.

Meanwhile a man who lived across the street from Holmes told the NY Post he used to "see him smoking weed behind the apartment." He told the paper, "Nobody ever really talked to him. He was alone a lot."

Holmes remains in custody and is scheduled to be arraigned at 8:30 AM on Monday.

After a neck injury, I told 10mg Vicodin.  It would knock me out for hours.  Unless this guy has some sort of strange body chemistry, I would think he'd be out cold.  But, then again, he was a whiz at chemistry.  Maybe he was cooking up his own special brand? 

The tmz photos look like he had shaved his eyebrows and drawn them back on.  I'm wondering how often his family spoke with him and if they'd noticed a change in him recently.  Something in this guy just wasn't right.

He had to take much more than 100 mgs if it were Vicodin.  I'm thinking he took another drug.  If it was hydrocodone then that's another story.  It's powerful and a lot of younger people take that to get high.

Vicodin Dosage
Before prescribing a dosage of Vicodin, your healthcare provider will consider how you respond to the drug and other medical conditions you have, among other things. The maximum recommended doses are designed to limit the total dose of acetaminophen to 4 grams (4000 mg) a day or less. If you take higher doses of acetaminophen, it may cause serious liver damage.
Dosing With Vicodin: An Introduction
The dose of Vicodin® (hydrocodone/APAP) your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
 

    How you respond to Vicodin
    Other medications you are taking
    Other medical conditions you may have.
    

As is always the case, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
 
Vicodin Dose for Pain
For regular-strength Vicodin (5/500 mg), the recommended dose is one to two tablets every four to six hours as needed, but not to exceed eight tablets in 24 hours. For Vicodin ES® (7.5/750 mg), the recommended dose is one tablet every four to six hours as needed, but not to exceed five tablets in 24 hours. For Vicodin HP® (10/660 mg), the recommended dose is one tablet every four to six hours as needed for pain, but not to exceed six tablets per day.
 
The maximum recommended Vicodin dosages are designed to limit the total dose of acetaminophen to 4 grams (4000 mg) a day or less. Higher doses of acetaminophen increase the risk of serious liver damage. Therefore, make sure to watch for any other sources of acetaminophen, including other prescription pain relievers and many over-the-counter products, such as Tylenol®. To be safe, all other acetaminophen products should be avoided while you are taking Vicodin, unless you are extremely careful to limit your total acetaminophen use (from all sources added together) to 4 grams per day. The acetaminophen content of Vicodin is 500 mg per regular-strength Vicodin tablet, 750 mg per Vicodin ES tablet, and 660 mg per Vicodin HP tablet.
 
You should not take Vicodin around the clock at the minimum interval between doses. For instance, even though it is okay to take a dose four hours after a previous dose, you should not take the maximum dose of Vicodin dose four hours around the clock, as this would exceed the recommended maximum daily dose.
