mlswogan-  It is possible that the discovery of being adopted is what was disturbing. It is possible that his biological parents are not bad people, perhaps they were young, perhaps they were deceived, perhaps they were not even aware. Please dont assume his biological parents are unfit. However, any links or information re: this subject on James that you can share with me would be most appreciated. Thank you.

Only if hang yourself with that rope afterwards, douchey. Spare humanity further degradation by removing yourself from the gene pool.

Here is a site you might find interesting that also concludes Holmes was experiencing a psychotic break:

http://drlillianglassbodylanguageblog.wordpress.com/2012/07/25/james-holmes-courtroom-body-language-and-phd-program-pressures/

Dr. Glass goes into a lot of detail about his childhood, background,etc.

He was adopted, if you choose not to believe this, fine.

There is a lot of evidence that James Holmes frantically attempted to obtain mental help prior to the break thru The University. My suspicion is that he may have looked into the background of his biological parents & discovered something very disturbing.

 

There are many children who are put up for adoption due to unfit biological parents. There is a case I know of where an eventual serial rapist/killer discovered his biological father had been similarly charged & was eventually executed. Like The Columbine Case, pain will reverberate forever as no one will stop feeling the loss of their loved ones. I wish all their families peace this day of Thanksgiving through the memory of happier times before this terrible event.

@dcCU Please read my comments in response to Nandrolone below at bottom. I am not asssuming anything about his biological parents. That is part of the puzzle that is missing. No information I am aware of has been released about them.

I was positing the theory that the shooter's interest in the field of neuroscience may have been motivated by fear of his personal discovery that he was the product of a parent (or both) plagued by mental illness. As an example, late adolescence to early adulthood are peak periods for the onset of schizophrenia which is highly linked to a genetic predisposition.

That would account for a previously brilliant mind that won grants to study a related field dissolving into the person who became a mass killer in this terrrible crime. There is also a high correlation between a transitory psychotic break & schizophrenia. I don't think people wanting to understand why something like this happens is unusual or should be criticized.

The reason why I engage in the work I do on my ad free, open to anyone site that covers many different cases including 2 other Colorado based crimes, the death of 10 year old Jessica Ridgeway & that of  6 year old JonBenét Ramsey is because it is human nature to wonder why as well as hope that greater understanding will prevent such crimes in the future.

Feel free to take a look while you wait. I have compiled a lot of info, witness statements, crime scene photographs that many people have never seen before. http://formercriminalprosecutor.blogspot.com/2012/10/jonbenet-patricia-ramsey-her-mother.html

As to Jessica Ridgeway, this will get you started on how I was the only profiler to posit that the killer was a juvenile as well as this was his first event: http://formercriminalprosecutor.blogspot.com/2012/10/profiling-101-jessica-ridgeway-dc.html

I don't blame his parents either. For the record: as I profiled in real time, I was getting many hits from a location that made me wonder if his mother was reading my comments. I urged her to turn him in & all I know is within a few hours, that is exactly what happened.

@Nandrolone I haven't been following this case all that closely. I will do a blog piece on it next week in light of new info that makes the premise of a psychotic break impossible: the long planning & trial runs.

I am still at http://formercriminalprosecutor.blogspot.com. Changed twitter feed to https://twitter.com/sexyvillelulz .(Problems with nut in Colorado named Toni Ingram who falsely claims someone stalked & raped her 20 year old daughter.) Will let you know when blog on the Aurora massacre is posted.

My most popular piece remains the death of 6 year old JonBenét Ramsey, which I still update & has been read by over 25,000 people. Feel free to take a look while you wait. I have compiled a lot of info, witness staements, crime scene photographs that many people have never seen before.  http://formercriminalprosecutor.blogspot.com/2012/10/jonbenet-patricia-ramsey-her-mother.html

I haven't changed my theory that the Aurora killer was studying neuroscience due to fears that he was inheriting mental instability from 1 or both biological parents.

There is a lot of evidence that James Holmes frantically attempted to obtain mental therapy & psychological aid prior to the killings thru The University. My suspicion remains that he may have looked into the background of his biological parents & discovered something very disturbing. Thanks for letting me know people are still interested in my take on his motivation.

I am still not aware of any information yet released on his biological parents. It will be very ironic if I am correct about the existence of mental illness in the family as I believe that the killer was trying to stave it off until it overcame him. No one enters this world hoping to grow up into a monster murdering children in a movie theatre someday. It is a very tragic outcome for everyone touched by the events of that night.
