FBI investigators have begun amassing evidence in an attempt in to try and understand how James Holmes underwent his brazen mission that to date has killed 12 and injured 58, some critically.
Since detonating the suspected assailant’s 800 square foot Aurora, Colorado apartment they have encountered a web of diabolical evidence that had one former FBI agent, Ray Lopez commenting that Holmes house was a booby trapped entity rarely seen out of war zones;
“This would be one of the first times I think we have ever seen what we can describe as a house bomb in the United States,”
“We’ve seen them in places like Iraq and Afghanistan,”
“But this is the first one that I can actually recall ever reading or seeing about in the United States where it was actually set to destroy the home.”
Obviously this throws up the question how does a neuroscience student who has never served in the military or any militia squad, seen active service, learn to hard wire such a contraption that according to investigators included 30 aerial shells filled with gunpowder, two containers brimming with liquid accelerants and numerous bullets that would have led to a raging fireball had it exploded?
According to authorities the intricate handy work involved grenades being wired to a control box in the kitchen, which police were only able to disable with the help of a remote-controlled robot. Not bad work for someone many are claiming discovered all his tricks by simply going to the web.
One can now only imagine the depth of destruction wrought had the detonation taken place, something that Holmes had been betting on as a way to deflect authorities from him as he set about killing cinema goers 5 miles away. It’s been reported he had left loud techno music blaring in the hopes that authorities would turn up and not finding him there be forced to enter the house and thus setting off the horrid chain explosion that would have consumed at the very least the entire third floor of the apartment complex before possibly spreading to the rest of the building and nearby apartment complex’s. A plan that Batman’s Joker would surely have approved of.
