Residents of shooting suspect’s apartment allowed to return home
AURORA, Colo. — Last Friday the bomb squad broke through a window of James Holmes’ third floor apartment in north Aurora to find it booby- trapped.
It was rigged with explosive devices and trip wires designed to kill whoever entered and to hurt others in the building according to police.
It took several days for police to clear the apartment and make it safe.
Residents were finally allowed to cross the crime scene tape and go inside Wednesday night.
They can go home, but none are staying so far.
One man went in, and came back out carrying bags and containers to his car… everything from personal items to food from his kitchen.
One woman parked and went inside without saying a word.
Another resident spent about an hour inside and left, also without comment.
Earlier in the day Holmes’ defense team did their thorough look around the apartment. It was a scene which will result in numerous criminal charges against Holmes according to authorities.
Restoration crews broke out the remainder of the glass in the windows of Holmes’ apartment Wednesday night and boarded them up.
