9. James Holmes – Colorado Theater Mass Murderer
The scary thing about looking into information regarding serial killers and mass murders is finding that it’s been happening for quite some time, and even more recently it continues to be a thing that is nearly impossible to predict. While I don’t necessarily condone how much the media likes to latch onto the acts of recently convicted mass murderers and serial killers, they are still worth mentioning. James Holmes falls into this category, and I’m sure we all remember what happened.
If you can’t recall, James Holmes is the perpetrator that brought the 2012 Aurora shooting. This is an event that happening during a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises, and even today there are people that won’t step foot into a theater as a result. Although I’m sure theaters have taken the necessary security precautions to defend themselves from things like this, it just goes to show you that it is nearly impossible to look at someone and know everything about them right away. James Holmes is currently incarcerated and serves 12 life sentences on top of an additional 3,318 years without parole.
