James Holmes's alleged "confession" about theater shooting: The National Enquirer version
|Art from the Enquirer's story.|
"Holmes said he initially went into the theater for the sole purpose of finding his therapist, who he believed would be waiting there for him," the insider revealed.There's also this:
"While he said he was programmed to commit a shooting spree, he wasn't exactly sure if he was supposed to do it on that particular night.
"But once he got inside the theater, Holmes claimed that he heard something in the movie's musical score that told him it was time to shoot certain people, though not everyone."
"Incredibly, Holmes said he didn't mean to shoot that particular person but was too amped up on adrenaline to take good aim," said the source.By presenting this material without contextualizing it, the Enquirer lives up -- or down -- to its journalistic reputation. Don't be surprised, though, if its account travels far and wide. Even though the judge in the case has unsealed some documents, and the University of Colorado has released a few others, there's essentially an informational vacuum in the case at this point that's begging to be filled. And the Enquirer appears happy to oblige.
"He showed no emotion in describing how the bullet hit the victim in the eye, and it exploded like glass. And he didn't even wince as he recalled seeing brain matter splatter on the people sitting directly behind the person. After that, he said everything was just a blur."
