James Eagen Holmes Born: 12.13.

1987 Birthplace: San Diego, CA Parents: Robert and Arlene Holmes, sister Chris Holmes

2002-2006 Westview High School
• Poway Unified School District has confirmed James Holmes was a graduate of Westview High School, Class of 2006 • Played soccer #16, ran cross country • Ritchie Duong: Friend. Knew James from Middle school through college. Those who were friends with him called him “Jimmy James.”: http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/ lanow/2012/07/colorado-shooter-enjoyed-video-games-movies-school-friendsays.html • Was an honors student • Did not walk in graduation ceremony: http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/ 2012/07/23/james-holmes-6-reported-facts-about-the-alleged-aurora-shooter.html • Jordan Toth: High school classmate said if you teased him, he would sit there and smile and really not do anything about it. http://abcnews.go.com/US/coloradomovie-shooting-james-holmes/story?id=16829552#.UCu9wo6KEno • Are we able to track down Ritchie Duong’s facebook or other social network profiles? • For this entire timeline is would behoove us to look into James’ father, Robert. Though the gossip involving Darpa and the banking system are extraordinary, it needs to be looked into for thorough investigating. At this stage, there will be little if any information I will be providing at this time regarding this. • Did James have any legal issues during high school? Have we verified and checked local clerk of courts records?

June - August 2006: Salk Institute of Biological Studies and Miramar College’s biotechnology boot camp
First summer internship for James at Salk Institute Worked in Terrence Sejnowsky’s computational neurobiology lab Worked with computer programming - flash programs. Flash programs - “Purpose of constructed model was to show an illusion between cause and effect relationships. In this illusion, the mind is actually tricked into believing an action precedes the event that caused it.” - J. Holmes resume • Salk Institute President: Prof. William R. Brody, 68 • Miramar College: • Careers/Internships: http://faculty.sdmiramar.edu/biotech/careers.html “California is fortunate to be home to approx. 30% of all US biotech companies with more than 400 in the San Diego region. The many job opportunities presented by such a wealth of biotechnology here in San Diego equals rewarding careers for those interested in the biosciences. • http://www.matsc.org/Internships.htm • • • • • Video obtained of him speaking at science camp (Temporal Illusions): http:// abcnews.go.com/GMA/video/james-holmes-video-alleged-killerreleased-16830275 • http://www.bagnewsnotes.com/2012/07/already-bats-some-thoughts-on-the-jamesholmes-science-camp-video/ • Above website claims: Holmes troubling behavior may have been manifesting in “temporal illusions” summer camp • John Jacobsen interview says James was rigid, stubborn, pronounced introversion • “As a senior in high school, James should have realized it was an ethical breach to name his mentor.”: John Jacobsen. Jacobsen denies being his mentor. • Designed computer program to illustrate temporal perceptions of causality • Programmed a flicker fusion utility • Do we have full “Temporal Illusions” presentation video downloaded anywhere? • Did James Holmes help develop “Flicker Fusion” (subliminal messaging), forms of mind control being implanted in movies and video games? • Any papers Holmes may have written from high school through summer 2006 • Did James Holmes write a paper entitled, “Temporary Perceptions of Causality?” • Susanne Posel interview on The Pete Santilli Show: MKUltra/Salk Institute? • No idea what this article is saying but someone linked it to James/Aurora/Mind Control - anyone want to take a look: http://the2012scenario.com/2011/01/ backgrounder-sorcha-faal/

• James states that the Flight Lab from 2007 - 2009 was the most recent lab he had worked in in his resume to U. of Illinois. QUESTION: When was this resume turned into U. of Illinois, for sure? He hasn’t worked in any labs since 2009? (Excluding Anschutz Medical Campus). What I mean is during the end of 2009 until the Fall of 2011 he didn’t work in any labs according to his resume? Really? • Did James have any legal issues during college? Again, have we verified through local clerk of courts? • Are the UCR dorms coed? • Can we verify his addresses in Riverside. Records show he lived at 3 Riverside addresses, two on campus and one off campus. The off campus address appears to be vacant.

! ! ! ! ! ! !

Thank you for offering me a position in the Neuroscience Program at UIUC but unfortunately I will not be accepting your offer of admission. My apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused. Best wishes in your candidate search. Regards, Interesting, because all earlier emails sent by James to University of Illinois ! were signed with a “Cheers” NOT “Regards” James Holmes

• Roberto Galvez offered to admit James into his lab at U of Illinois • Joseph Lee offered to admit James into his lab at U of Illinois • March 22, 2012 “Glad we put the $$ and effort into bringing him.” - Samual Beshers

• Going through emails and such and I’m trying to figure out exact date of James’ application submission • James was possibly looking at schools in Iowa and Alabama? (notebook notes) • “Lee” and “Roberto” offered to admit James into their labs from U of Illinois, full names? • Did he hold any jobs? • Was he volunteering at any labs? • Why couldn’t James go to the Februrary 17-19 U of Illinois Open House?

NEUROSCIENCE POST-ROTATIONAL TALKS: First year classes are generally scheduled in the morning to give students the afternoons free to do research in a laboratory. Students rotate through one lab each semester. These laboratory rotations are an excellent opportunity for students to experience the approach and environment of laboratories they are considering for the Ph.D thesis work. *Following the completion of each rotation, the student is required to schedule and present a seminar on the the research conducted in the present laboratory. http://www.ucdenver.edu/academics/colleges/medicalschool/programs/Neuroscience/ Curriculum/Pages/First_Year.aspx NEUROSCIENCE PRELIMINARY EXAMINATIONS: Graduate school mandates a preliminary evaluation of a student’s fitness to proceed to the Comprehensive exam. The preliminary exam consists of a one hour discussion with three faculty to assess how laboratory and course material of the first year have been integrated by the student. http://www.ucdenver.edu/academics/colleges/medicalschool/programs/Neuroscience/ Curriculum/Pages/Preliminary_Examinations.aspx NEUROSCIENCE COMPREHENSIVE EXAMINATIONS: Students will choose a thesis mentor at the beginning of the second year of study and begin preparing for the Comprehensive Exam. The examination will have as its focus a thesis research proposal written by the student using the form of an NIH grant application. The student must adequately demonstrate the scientific knowledge and ability to defend this proposal, as well as satisfying the overall requirements for the examination as set forth by the CU Graduate Student Handbook. Once the Comprehensive Exam is passed, students become candidates for the Neuroscience Ph.D. Students are encouraged to submit their proposal as a predoctoral NIH grant. (Several students have been recipients of these grants.) http://www.ucdenver.edu/academics/colleges/medicalschool/programs/Neuroscience/ Curriculum/Pages/Comprehensive_Examinations.aspx NEUROSCIENCE THESIS: Students will give annual reports on the progress of their thesis research to the Neuroscience faculty in the form of 30 minute seminars, and meet at least annually with their Thesis Committee. Upon completion of a body of original research that constitutes a significant contribution of new knowledge to the field of Neuroscience, students will write a Ph.D. thesis containing this information, and defend this document at an oral examination. NEUROSCIENCE PROGRAM STUDENT HANDBOOK: http://www.ucdenver.edu/academics/colleges/medicalschool/programs/Neuroscience/ Curriculum/Pages/Handbook.aspx **revised July 2012 • Students accepted in the Ph.D program are provided full tuition, health insurance and a stipend of $26,000 per year for living expenses.Continued support is contingent upon satisfactory academic and research performance by the student. When a student enters a thesis lab, the thesis mentor assumes complete responsibility for the studentstipend, tuition, fees, and associated research costs. Out of state tuition is paid

only in the first year. All students must establish Colorado residency during and by the end of their first year in the program. 3.0 Graduate Training Committee (GTC). Every first year student is assigned a member of the GTC as a mentor. Students are required to meet with their GTC mentors every month to update them on their progress. GTC members provide feedback to first year students on choices of rotation and thesis labs. The students also need to rehearse their rotation talks with their GTC advisors. ...In this regard, students should expect to be in the lab beyond the normal working hours, i.e., at evening, on weekends, and possibly over vacation days during the term. This commitment of time is especially important when long, complex experiments are being done. A major part of the mentor’s rotational assessment (as well as his/her willingness to accept a student) will be based on the degree and quality of lab effort. Students should always discuss time off and/or vacation days with their lab mentor in advance, both in their lab rotations and once they enter a thesis lab. 4.1.3 Transfer to Thesis Lab at End of First Year: An important aim of the rotations is to enable the student to find a thesis mentor. After the completion of the three rotations for regular graduate students or two rotations for MSTPs, the student should come to a mutual agreement with a faculty member to act as thesis mentor. Feedback from the GTC mentor or Chair is essential to this process. The chair of the GTC and the Program Administrator should be notified on the choice of mentor on or before June 15th of the first year. Official transfer to the thesis lab takes place on July 1st. 4.1.4 Preliminary Exam at the End of the First Year: The preliminary exam will be an oral one. An examining committee will be drawn from the course lecturers of NRSC 7600, 7610 and 7615 (see section on first year courses). Each of these courses will have one representative on a student’s exam committee. The exam will last about 45 - 60 min. While the basis of the questions will be integration of material across the courses, the examiners will expand the scope based on perceived strengths and weaknesses of the student. If a student demonstrates appropriate knowledge and integration of the material, no other action is required. However, if deficiencies are noted during the exam, the student will develop a plan to address these weaknesses in consultation with the GTC Chair. In some cases, reexamination might be required. In all cases, problems noted during the exam should be addressed by the end of the fall semester of the second year. 5.5 Due Process: A student will have 7 days to appeal any decision of the GTC that affects them. Such appeals must be in writing and delivered to the Program Office. The GTC will respond to appeals within 7 days of receipt. Students will be given the opportunity to meet in person with the GTC to discuss their appeal if they so desire. 5.6 Further Appeals. Unchallenged decisions or decisions after appeal to the GTC regarding the correction of academic deficiencies are final. Decisions regarding recommendation for dismissal to the Graduate School may be appealed to the Dean of Graduate Studies as described in the Graduate Student Handbook. 5.7 Illness or Personal Problems. Students are encouraged to bring any problems that might affect their academic performance to the attention of any GTC member. This must be done as soon as possible, preferably before such problems result in academic difficulties.

Dunwiddie, Ph.D • Journal Club: N. Program runs weekly journal club for graduate/post-doc students • Winter Brain Conference: Annual meeting

FURTHER NOTES ON ACTIVITIES AVAILABLE TO HOLMES: 6. Other Neuroscience Program Events and Related Activities 6.1 Neuroscience Seminar. During fall and spring semesters, first year Neuroscience students are expected to attend all Neuroscience seminars (NRSC 7660). In subsequent years, attendance at a minimum of 50% of the seminars is required. Speakers during the academic year include Neuroscience students, Neuroscience faculty, and numerous invited guest speakers from other institutions. From time to time, students will be invited to luncheons or discussion sessions with these guests and are encouraged to take advantage of these opportunities to interact with top scientists from around the world.

6.2 Neuroscience Annual Retreat. The Neuroscience Program holds an annual weekend retreat during the academic year to foster faculty student interactions with lectures, poster sessions, and opportunities for informal discussions during meals and free time. The event provides an opportunity for faculty members to present brief overviews of the research being conducted in their labs, and for students to present posters showing their own research from lab rotations or thesis work. One visiting speaker from another institution is usually invited to give lectures. The Neuroscience Program covers the cost of the retreat for all Neuroscience students. Neuroscience faculty members may partially cover the retreat cost for themselves and must cover all costs for postdoctoral associates or other members of their labs who attend. Since time with family members may diminish the time available for interactions with faculty and students, the Neuroscience Program discourages family member attendance at this function. 6.3 Rocky Mountain Regional Neuroscience Group (RMRNG) and Front Range NeuroscienceGroup (FRNG). The RMRNG and FRNG are chapters of the Society for Neuroscience dedicated to promoting communication and interaction among area neuroscientists. The RMRNG is based in Denver and the FRNG is based in Fort Collins (CSU). You automatically are a member of the other group if you are a member of one. You do not have to be a member of the Society for Neuroscience in order to join the RMRNG or FRNG. Annual Neurosymposium are held in the spring and fall, including lectures by visiting speakers and members, a poster session, and evening banquet. 6.4 Opportunities for Student Research Presentations. The NeuroscienceProgram encourages students to present their research findings through various poster presentations throughout the year. The following is a list of student poster presentation opportunities and the approximate time of year each event is held: Neuroscience Annual Retreat September/October Neuroscience Meeting Practice Session October AMC; Student Recruitment Weekend in February. Students also get to present their work during the RMRNG and FRNG annual meetings
