Blogger and aspiring broadcaster Jessica Ghawi ( also known as Jessica Redfield) is at the cinema. She sends what will be the last SMS message of her life. Texting a friend, she types “Movie don’t start for 20 minutes.” Holmes is also eagerly awaiting the start of the movie.
Holmes lives just three kilometres from the cinema. Having loaded his car with weapons, he leaves over 30 improvised explosive devices ( IEDs) planted in his apartment. Making a final check on his arsenal and hell- bent on mass murder, Holmes leaves and heads for the cinema.
