It would appear the the prosecution is withholding crime scene photos and recordings of interviews with James Holmes from the defense. Again, reports are that he seemed “distracted” and didn’t say a word in court while some woman jumped up in the back of the court room claiming to have important information for the defense. She was immediately removed. I’m surprised the lynch-mob didn’t string her up immediately or burn her at the stake for being a witch.
“King said that so far the defense team has received 2,677 pages of documents from the prosecution. Most of those are written reports by police officers. King said the prosecution has not yet shared any photographs, recordings of interviews or expert reports.” Denver Post
According to reports, some woman stood up in the courtroom during the proceedings and claimed to have “important information” for the defense. She was removed.
A woman who said she had information helpful to lawyers defending James Eagan Holmes disrupted the hearing about whether to unseal the files in the murder case this afternoon. Denver Post
There is no telling what she was talking about but the article claims a reporter spoke to her before the hearing and that she left her computer bag in the media area… seems like she might be a blogger?
The judge did not issue a ruling but the media are starting to report on a few of the conflicting reports that were put out immediately after the shooting.
I also found out that the case was originally sealed by the judge, by request of the prosecution, on Friday the 20th of July, the same day of the attack. Pretty odd there for them to make that request so early in the process.
