Since waking up to this tragic news yesterday, I cannot get James Holmes out of my mind. Holmes is the man who murdered twelve innocent people in the movie theater in Aurora, CO, who were there to watch the premier showing of the new Batman movie, the Dark Knight Rises. Why did he do this? I cannot stop wondering why. So many questions, so many things left unexplained. Holmes does not fit the typical profile for a mass murderer, other than a high level of intelligence – which is very common among serial killers. It’s the challenge, the game many love. To outsmart and beat the system. However, most serial killers and mass murderers have something in their past which, although may not be enough to raise red flags to the public, indicate some sort of imbalance or traumatic event that forever affects them.
