By most accounts, Holmes lived the life of a normal teen -- with a particular interest in science.However, there's a second segment at ABC News, available at the YouTube clip here, in which correspondent Pierre Thomas reports that a computer was found in the suspect's apartment. I'm interested to hear more of Holmes' academic record and work product, as I mentioned last night at my report: "James Holmes' Academic Frustration and Social Isolation."
The video shows him being introduced at the seminar as someone whose "goals are to become a researcher and to make scientific discoveries. In personal life, he enjoys playing soccer and strategy games and his dream is to own a slurpee machine."
Though Holmes was apparently a gifted scientist who had received a federal grant to work on his Ph.D. at one of the most competitive neuroscience programs in the country, he was a loner who -- oddly for a young scientist -- seemed to have no Internet presence.
I'll be updating throughout the day, so check back.
