29 Apr Criminal Defense Attorney, Iris Eytan, Says James Holmes ‘Out of His Mind’
As investigators probe into the mental state of Aurora movie theater shooter, James Holmes, criminal defense attorney, Iris Eytan, who initially represented Holmes, but is no longer involved, said, “He [James Holmes] was absolutely out of his mind,”
Eytan, who is an expert Denver trial lawyer, and deals largely with mental health issues, compared Holmes to schizophrenics she has defended: They are erratic and irrational; they hallucinate.
“Look at his eyes, they’re completely dilated,” she said, referencing a mug shot showing Holmes with hair dyed comic-book orange. “He was under the influence of something, and I believe it was mental illness.”
