Aurora theater shooting: Meet Jonathan Lee Riches, prime suspect in bizarre court filings
The most recent register of events, published on Friday, mentions an order denying a motion requesting access to records in order to present "newly discovered evidence." That document is referenced by the initials "A.M.E.," which correspond to Allison Michelle Ernst -- the name of a young woman who interrupted an August 9 hearing in the case; she claimed to have information vital to the investigation before she was escorted from the courtroom.
The original A.M.E. motion hasn't been made public by the 18th Judicial District, either -- but lo and behold, there's an Allison Michelle Ernst blogspot that includes just such a document. And again, it bears a close resemblance to the ones pertaining to the unnamed victim and Y.P.L. It reads:
Another look at Jonathan Lee Riches.
Comes Now, Allison Michelle Ernst , moves this honorable court to intevene in the the James Eagan Holmes case for access to all judicial records and to intervene to produce newly discovered withheld evidence. Further , movant intervenes to appeal this courts ruling denying the defendants constitutional right to have they're own experts present as the state examines scientific evidence, which this denial is a violation of confrontation clause James Holmes is a innocent man , James holmes must be released to me asap, this is a huge conspiracy. I am the allison ernst who came to court bald with a red dress. This court and the media must go to " james holmes is innocent " facebook page to look and read about all the evidence which will show James is truly innocent and that the guilty party is philip anschutz who owns half of regal cinemas and Anschutz mind controlled James to go to the theater to knock out Anschutz's competitor. Anschutz is involved with new world order and a group of cabal evil worldwide crooks who want control of the world through false flag attacks akin to george orwell 1984 , where james holmes is now the new emmanuel, and Anschutz's fingerprints are all over this tragic event and he must be investigated. Anschutz also killed michael Jackson. I fear for my life, i can be found in " james holmes is innocent ".Ernst's address is listed as Philadelphia, Pennsylvania -- and the person who posted it is identified as Jonathan Lee Riches.
The shtick doesn't stop there. Riches's Facebook page, which describes him as a "rogue detective" at the Aurora Police Department who studied at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, currently features a video that purports to show James Holmes masquerading as Ernst. Here's a screen capture:
Other Holmes-related ephemera on the page includes an application for the Aurora City Council, a letter to a local attorney asking him to take Holmes's case and a petition to formally change Riches's name to "James Eagan Holmes."
We'll be reaching out to Riches with a request for a response to this post. When and if we receive a reply, we'll update.
