The kangaroo court trial of James Holmes just took another, bizarre and potentially illegal twist.
Yesterday we talked about how this trial was turning into a freak show, today it seems it’s more staged than I originally thought.
It seems like someone involved in this case took a corrections department employee from the neighboring county and booked her on a trumped up charge which would be easily dismissed later and stricken from her record, then put her in protective custody on the same medical ward that James Holmes is on, so that she could falsely claim that he confessed to the killings.
Chillingly, this jailhouse plant, the corrections employee, hinted in an earlier Facebook comment that Holmes may kill himself in jail.
Turns out the “former inmate” who gave an interview to FOX31 Denver’s Justin Joseph in which she claims to have heard him admit to committing the July 20th massacre at the Century 16 theater in Aurora, just happens to have posted comments in the past (July 23rd) condemning Holmes and stating that he’s “not going to get away with it”
Not only that, but it appears she may even be a correction officer in a nearby county.
This is a still of “Marie” taken from the Fox31 interview that came out just the other day in which she claims James Holmes confessed to the Aurora Massacre.
The second: You said Holmes has made a confession of guilt. What did he say? “His words were, ‘Yes, I did it. I did it,’” Marie said.” Fox 31
A reader here, Sheila Aliens , posted a comment about this woman’s real identity. Great work Sheila.
I took a look at it, and turns out, she’s correct. This woman is either Desira Keys or she is going by that name now that “Desiree Mayberry” is associated with “Marie”. I don’t know.
But, I do know, Desira Keys is the woman who gave the Fox 31 interview and claimed she heard James Holmes confess to the murders.
Problem is, Desira Keys seems to be working for the corrections department in a neighboring county and she had been convinced long ago of Holmes’ guilt.
Here’s Desira Keys’ Facebook page and a photo of her from that page with the image of her child removed for her protection. This is definately “Marie” from the Fox 31 interview. Notice the purple band on her left arm and the tattoo on her right forearm. If you watch the Fox 31 interview here, you can see the purple band and the right arm has what appears to be the same tattoo, only she is careful to hide it as much as possible.
- Im Desirae..26yr old Mother of a BEAUTIFUL lil girl [edit name removed to protect identity]! I love being a mother, work hard to be the best for her that I can be. I enjoy spending time with my family (siblings) and friends. I love to be silly n mke ppl laugh, being outside, dancing, shopping…retail therapy is the best lol! Im just me..ready to be done with school and begin Grad school..I would like to get out of the Corrections side of things and do more transitional and one on one work with at risk youth. That’s been my passion from a young age and a career I think ill continue to pursue!
- Lives in Parker, Colorado
Notice what she says in her profile description: She will “continue” working in “the corrections side of things”… that means she works somewhere in a jail or sheriff’s department and according to her map, she is in Parker Co. a neighboring country to Aurora. It also claims she is from Aurora.
It’s no doubt the same woman who claimed James Holmes confessed to mass murder.
But think about this, back on July 23rd of this year, she posted these comments on Facebook under her name:
“Desira Keys: prison is the best place for this man. yes he gets 3 hots and a cot but when ur on death row which he will be..you r in a cell the size of a bathroom or walk in closet 23hrs a day, no physcial contact with ne1 not even visitors…so this man will suffer n personally id rather c him sit n rot in a cell going insane from being isolated from the rest of the world with hopes that his day to die comes soon. and being that Nathan Dunlap is still waiting to be executed and that was in 93, this guy is going to have a nice cold sement cell in Sterling Correctional facility as his home for the next 15 plus yrs…and that right there is what he deserves. yes we as tax payers are paying for it, but thats the way it wrks…we r gnna pay taxes either way. He will get what he deserves…with more then a few a** whoopins along the way!!
Desira Keys: the insanity plea will NOT wrk in this case…this was premeditated..no way he vjust snapped idc what lawyer he gets its not hppning this guy will pay for what he has done if he dsnt kill himself first.” Facebook chat log
Desira Keys was arrested on a trumped-up charge of violating a protection order when she got back together with her ex-husband. She was then put in a protective custody type cell just feet from James Holmes, where as a corrections employee she would be safe and she could “inform” on Homes.
Is that illegal? Is the fact that this corrections department worker foresees Holmes killing himself in custody before he goes to trial relevant? Is it cause for concern?
Someone in Aurora County has a lot to answer for. It could be Chief Dan Oates or even the prosecution.
If she had anything relevant to add to the case, my guess is that she would have kept her mouth shut and turned state’s evidence. As it is, since the judge issued a gag order on the trial, she may not be allowed to testify in court now that she has given this interview and she may not want to anyway in fear of perjuring herself.
Either way, this was an outrageous move by the prosecution or the sheriff’s office and equally dishonest on the part of Fox 31 for broadcasting her statements without publicizing her personal interest in the case.
