Forensic Psychiatrists Weigh in on What the Ramblings in the Colorado Theater Shooter's Journal Mean
There are explicit plans to murder people in James Holmes's journal. But does any of the material suggest the guy behind the Aurora murders is "not guilty by reason of insanity"?
The suspect had recently sought psychological care and has claimed to be suffering from insomnia, dizziness, depression, and "a disconnection from reality" at the time of the poisonings.
The verdict came after a bizarre trial that was heavily covered by the national media and renewed focus on the problem of mental health among America's veterans.
Prosecutors pinned Californian Joseph Corey as a cold-blooded murderer who laid in wait to kill any lawman who showed up at his door, but evidence suggests he was a mentally ill hoarder who had lost his grip on reality.
