Gumbinner said Holmes also told him he rigged a fuse between three glass jars that would explode. He filled the jars with a deadly homemade chemical mixture that would burn so hot it could not be extinguished with water.


Ban cleaning products and common household chemicals...

From your post it looks like he set 2 in his apt and 1 outside, yet none of them acutally worked (I guess, I figure I would have heard if they did work).


They didn't say but I remember a lady said she went to his room and almost opened the door but she got an eerie feeling and turned around and left.

The real question is why didn't he just detonate it himself or set a timer?

If he was at the theater he probably wouldn't have a remote with enough range to do it himself. I'm just amazed that none of the 3 worked. The police went to his apt and searched. How did they not set those off? Did they just open the door and say "shite, we need some bomb experts in here" and let some other people look at the trip wires and debug everything?

You're dumb.

For big movies, most places start selling advance tickets weeks ahead of time.

Didn't he mention something about his apartment being boobie-trapped?

I can't remember.

I'm thinking they had a pretty good idea the place was a bomb zone. I remember it taking a few days for them to get in and clear things.

Also remember seeing videos of police looking in and climbing in the windows.

King asked if Appel was also aware that the officer "observed Holmes take a staple out of the table and tried to stick it in an electrical socket?" Appel confirmed Holmes' actions.

Aurora Police Department homicide detective Matthew Ingui testified that there is no video surveillance of the actual shooting, but there are several photos of Holmes checking into the theater kiosk with his cellphone. He scanned his phone three times.

They don't have at least one camera in each individual theater?

You're completely wrong. I bought my tickets for TDKR on fandango at least three weeks in advance.
