Email: James Holmes explored being subject for researcher doing brain scans on schizophrenic people

CU releases documents on theater shooting suspect

AURORA, Colo. – Accused Aurora theater shooter James Holmes in 2011 expressed interest in being a test subject for a University of Colorado researcher who was using brain scans to study schizophrenic people.

Yet, within hours Holmes said he couldn’t participate in the study, CALL7 Investigator Keli Rabon reports….

Holmes had been a neuroscience graduate student at CU’s Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora and was in the process of withdrawing from the program at the time of the shooting.

Holmes was also a patient of CU psychiatrist Dr. Lynne Fenton, who reported to campus police she had concerns about Holmes six weeks before the shooting.

On Sept. 18, 2011, Holmes emailed a CU Department of Psychiatry researcher who does functional magnetic resonance imaging — or fMRI — research on people with schizophrenia.

“The fmri study sounds interesting and I would like to be a subject if possible. Cheers, James Holmes,” he mailed the researcher.

Yet, when the researcher emailed Holmes a list of testing times, Holmes replied, “Ah, I can’t make any of those times, best of luck.”
