There are always more questions and answers in situations like the one today in Aurora, CO. A gunman opened fire inside a movie theater, killing 12 and injuring dozens more.
The biggest question: Why?
A University of Akron professor and retired Akron Police detective who specializes in criminal profiling says accused shooter James Holmes had a reason for his alleged actions.
"In this kind of a case, where he deliberately planned this, obviously planned it out, so he has a huge motive," said Mary Myers. "Whether we can understand it, I don't know."
Authorities report that Holmes' apartment was booby trapped.
"So, obviously he's into the game of it," said Myers. "He's doing some magical thinking. He's probably had a psychotic break. He's not in touch with the same reality that we are. He probably believed he was doing some courageous or vengeful act."
Myers says she would look into the gaming world to get some insight into what makes James Holmes tick.
"There's a real probably that this person took on this persona in real life or in his games, so I'd be looking for who disappeared from that gaming world in order to try to better understand his motive of his personality, said Myers."
