First Home Video Of James Holmes Emerges On ABC News

Earlier today, ABC News ran footage from a video unearthed showing James Holmes, currently being held by the Aurora police for the shootings in a Colorado movie theater, speaking at a science camp several years ago. In the video, he is giving a lecture on temporal illusions.

One of the other students introduces him with this statement: “His goals are to become a researcher and make scientific discoveries.” She continues to say that Holmes enjoys soccer and strategy games, and his dream is “to own a Slurpee machine.” ABC revealed that Holmes’ interest in science won him a federal grant from the National Institutes of Health to study neuroscience.

ABC also aired video footage of police setting off several explosives taken from Holmes’ apartment in the middle of a large field in carefully staged conditions.
