Independent Investigation Reveals Additonal Suspects in Aurora Mass Shooting CaseChristian Petersen and Thomas Brinkley Salem-News.com
Part 1 : The police radio tapes
(SALEM) - The morning of July 20th we were told by Aurora Police chief, Dan Oates, that he did not have any evidence to suggest there were additional suspects in the Aurora massacre at The Dark Knight Rises premiere. A limited amount of evidence is available to the public, and it tells a startlingly different story. Let's take look at the police radio transmissions from the night of the incident...
The first mention of other suspects comes over the radio around 10 minutes and 10 seconds after the recording begins at 12:39am. Let the reader be mindful that it is at 12:39am is when the first 911 calls went out soon after the shooter began firing. www.youtube.com/watch?
According to the police booking report, and from the Aurora PD Chief's official statement, James Holmes was apprehended at 12:40am that night. None of the actual 911 calls have been released from the incident, but that didn't stop some major news outlets from reporting that: Not only had the 911 calls been released, but they were acting as though the audio taken from the police scanner were the 911 calls. While this may seem trivial, it is indicative of how unprofessional the mainstream media has been with regard to their investigative reporting on this case.
Once again, James Holmes was apprehended immediately, already outside the theater, in or at his car according to the authorities, at 12:40am. This is one to one and a half minutes after the first 911 call. The following quotes are from the minutes following the time of his official apprehension:

(For some reason this live police radio does a loop right here and repeats the last 2 statements)

32:38 Denver 316 it'll be in between theaters 14 and 15 I believe. If you face the theater it's on the right hand side

42:17 Come back over here with me we need to clear this to the east
43:59 ...(staff?) in front of the theater. They're asking if our Air One is up and need a flyover over the theater
44:05 Clear. We're calling air one out right now, they will be...called out from the airport
44:18 And Denver be advised, air one does have capability to patch into our channel one, and that is patched into the other channel so they'll be able to feed in directly to our command staff
44:25 (Fire) All units, all AFE units, please...that are in your divisions, just meet with your division leader and sit tight. All ambulances that are not being used, I need you to report to staging at Exposition and Sable
45:06 Metro 10 any unit on the back, I know we cleared it out, but I need somebody to reconfirm the white vehicle outside the door's plate
45:20 The plate will be 119 Robert Ocean Charles
45:30 Confirm 119 ROC?
45:35 119 Robert Ocean Charles
45:40 Metro 10 to people with those key witnesses that were inside the theater, we need to start, quickly as possible, getting suspect descriptions, because we intially got some conflicting information. I wanna make sure we're not looking for anybody else
46:20 Yes ETA is about 25 minutes now. And we told them to respond to the east side of the theater
46:30 All units on the scene, if you run across a victim, do not tell them to leave, tell them to proceed to the north side of the parking lot by the fire trucks, where people will take their information
54:13 Is there one supervisor that is dealing with all of the witnesses? Or at least organizing all the witness?...
54:26 Lincoln 25 have you designated which supervisor is handling all of the witnesses?
54:33 uh uh...Denver's kinda tryin to coordinate that for me, the other juristictions are trying to coordinate that for me
54:40 Radio I need...I know we can merge our channels, you need to get ahold of Lakewood or somebody to figure out how we can merge Denver and Aurora channels so we can start talking to each other
54:50 Copy we'll try and figure that out
56:15 (Silva Dejobzar)
56:20 Cruiser 11 go ahead
56:23 Where exactly are you?
56:25 I'm at the rear, I've got the theater, securing that...securing the suspects vehicle. I'm back here on the east side, theater 9
56:50 Three 21 I had another witness say green camoflauge pants
56:58 Everybody hold your communications until we get patched here...Dispatch are we done?
56:03 No its not working...I'm having a supervisor figure it out right now
57:45 (Fire) ...so I'm gonna keep that crew that just went intact as a pronouncement group, for lack of a better term, simply because there's a secondary device, reported to be in one of these SUV's at the front of the building. The pronouncement team's on the other side of engine 8 for safety. We still have truck 2's crew inside, waiting for word from police on ventilation. And I think that's why we have the resources right at the theater
58:08 [whispering] We have an open door at the mall...it's gonna be on the east side, next to the food court
58:15 (Fire) Command also to let cha know, police have assured me that they've swept the theater 3 times, shouldn't be any other patients in there that we haven't discovered
58:20 Copy Aurora copies open door at the mall, east side at the food court
58:27 Denver (SAC 8) All of our (TAC?) cars are out on that...if you could get ahold of one of our K-9's, or if Aurora has a K-9, so we can start a search
58:36 Any available K-9 on Blue SE that can help search the mall? Again east side, open door at the food court
58:50 (Fire) Mark I'm gonna assist command, you're gonna be police liason, and assisting with staging
58:55 (Fire) Negative on the staging, a watch commander came out and wanted a chief officer present with him. He had a degreee of urgency, so while I was still getting briefed, so I spun off and left Chris in command, and came up here to find out what was going on. I don't know if you heard my last transmission, police told me they surveyed the theater 3 times. They've swept it 3 times with personnel. They think all victims are accounted for. We've got 10 black patients inside, and we're not gonna send another team in further, per the original request to survey if any of em are salvagable. Possible secondary device here in front of the theater, in an SUV. As well as reports of possible device inside the theater. I've got truck 2 inside, standing by, because originally police wanted them inside for ventilation
58:55 (K-9 unit) Where do you need me?
59:00 East side next to the food court, they have an open door
59:13 Copy any units not holding a perimeter or at the command post, please go to the east side of the Aurora mall, for an open door at the food court
1:01:27 Officers be advised the media is on the scene
1:01:35 Metro 24 we got media walking around, on the far east side of sable behind the theater
1:01:40 (Fire) [Extended solid horn heard blaring in background]
[Now this is an interesting statement. This officer has been talking to people for probably a little over an hour and taking statements from witnesses. He is coming to the conclusion, based on the information he's gathered over the time since the shooting has occured, and he seems fairly confident of his working theory at this point. This officer is drawing the conclusion, from what he knows, that it sounded like a coordinated attack]
1:16:30 "I'm not sure if this information's already been put out, but I've been talking to people who've been giving statements, it sounds like we have possibly 2 shooters, 1 that was in Theater 8 seated, another one that came in from the outside into Theater 9. Sounded like it was a coordinated attack."
1:16:50 Aurora Mall we do have the main entrances covered, we have a perimeter set up. Denver K-9 is coordinating the search of inside the mall at this time
1:17:00 I just wanted to share if we didn't have the information out, there is possibly 2 shooters
1:17:06 That is new news, break, Every unit on Blue SE, possible second shooter still at large
1:17:15 ...message to keep the media away from them
1:38:26 We're in the mall by the Best Buy mobile...top floor
1:52:10 We have a siren and a red light outside Sears
1:52:15 Copy, let me double check with my primaries
1:52:25 Looks like we did have one alarm, an hour ago at Macys. But since you were all inside, it has been cleared out
Unfortunately, there was plenty of people that got out of that parking lot of Century 16 right after the incident, in cars and on foot, dressed in all black, running...with backpacks, and driving away. By the time the police got the information pointing them towards additional suspects, it was most likely too late. Multiple witnesses from Century 16 describe walking or driving away without being even stopped by the police on their way out of the area.
As reported by ABC news early Friday morning, the police were still searching for a suspect.
This report from International Business News explains how the police were conducting a manhunt at the nearby mall for an Indian male.
This is by no means a comprehensive analysis of the entire police radio recording, I encourage you to do your own further research on the radio recordings.
So what we have here is a small sliver of the evidence that we have for multiple suspects. This should initially raise some suspicions of multiple suspects escaping from the scene in the early morning hours of July 20th, 2012. Wait till you see what else there is.
