Investigators discovered a Batman mask in the home of the man who opened fire at the midnight premiere of ‘The Dark Knight Rises.’
After the shooting, James Holmes, 24, told police he was “the Joker, enemy of Batman,” and even painted his hair red to resemble the Batman character. Now, the discovery of a mask in James’ apartment implies that the shooter had a full blown Batman obsession.
On July 22, police told The Associated Press that a Batman mask had been found in James’ apartment. Investigators discovered the mask after clearing James’ apartment of ammunition and booby traps.
James has been held in solitary confinement at an Arapahoe County detention since his arrest on July 20. He will be moved after his arraignment, which takes place at 11:30 A.M. PST on July 23.
