New information on the man accused of killing 12 people and injuring 70 others at a Colorado movie theater last year.

 

Colorado police say they believe James Holmes might have “role-played” a serial killer on the streets of Denver in a made-up “maze game” before the shooting took place. (Via CNN)

 

Police testified at a preliminary hearing Wednesday that, while searching Holmes’ apartment, they found “a spiral notebook with a drawing that depicted a serial killer navigating the maze in a section of Denver called LoDo, or Lower Downtown.” (Via NBC)

 

At this point it appears this fantasy was just acted out in drawings, not in reality. 

 

An FBI agent also gave testimony, saying an evidence team found a Batman mask and a calendar with the date of the massacre, July 20, 2012, marked “with a unique symbol." (Via New York Daily News)

 

According to Fox News, Holmes also sent a notebook full of violent drawings to a psychiatrist before the deadly rampage.

 

The pre trial was held to determine if those items and other evidence uncovered at Holmes’ apartment can be introduced at his trial.

 

Holmes’ lawyers are asking for that evidence to be thrown out. They say investigators searched his apartment without a search warrant, which would make any evidence obtained there unusable in court. (Via ITN)

 

But prosecutors argue authorities needed to enter the apartment immediately to clear it of any explosives or traps Holmes might have set up. 

 

Police say they used a bomb robot to knock down Holmes’ apartment door the morning after the attack. And through the robot’s camera, authorities reported they saw fireworks shells, wires, ignition boxes, and a trip wire. (Via The Denver Post)

 

The judge has not said when he will make his decision on the motions made in the preliminary hearing. 

 

Holmes is scheduled to go on trial in February for allegedly firing a semiautomatic rifle into a crowd of people attending the midnight screening of “The Dark Knight Rises.” (Via ABC)
