What I find most interesting about this case is that Holmes was in the process of withdrawing mid-term from his University and that he went to allot
of trouble to collect the appropriate attire, weapons and even booby trapped his apartment. He worked out the details of his attack and may have even
had an accomplice to help him get into the theater unnoticed.
It seems quite apparent that this was planned several weeks in advance. There must be some material and circumstantial foundation, a witness or two
that will emerge as the investigation winds up.
I would consider theories along the lines of some obsession with an antisocial ideology or something along those lines. I find it unlikely that
someone with his potential would crack on account of being jobless. Something anomalous got into him.
Another factor that is quite odd, is that he didn't commit suicide after this horrific act. The propensity for suicide after such an event is
statistically prominent. If he were suicidal, he would have taken his own life on the scene, but instead returned to his vehicle where he was arrested
without resistance in the parking lot.
I'm looking for a message in all of this, although I can't imagine exactly what that might be.
