With the country still reeling from the horrific tragedy that took place late Friday night at a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises in Aurora, Colorado, more and more information is being revealed about the young man responsible for it all, as well as how its devastation continues to affect those directly - and indirectly - associated with it.

Two more victims of the devastating shooting have been revealed to be six-year-old Veronica Moser, whose mother remains in critical condition, and 27-year-old Navy sailor Matthew McQuinn, who died after jumping in front of his girlfriend and blocking her from a bullet's path.

Meanwhile, authorities with FBI are still struggling to disarm and preserve the extremely sophisticated explosive devices left by shooter James Holmes in his apartment, which they confirm were "designed to kill."

Holmes was also revealed to have set up a Match.com profile when a young woman, identified only as Diana, revealed that she received him as a potential interest from the website only hours after the news broke of the shooting. This profile's headline matched that of his on AdultFriendFinder: "Will you visit me in prison?"

While reports also surfaced that he may have had an accomplice in the shooting with a former doctorate classmate, authorities quickly clarified that he was merely an "associate of Holmes" who had not yet been in contact with police, and had since been interviewed.

This was further proven to be true when it was confirmed that he had legally obtained a AR-15 assault rifle, Remmington 12-guage shotgun, 40-caliber glock handgun, and the 40-caliber glock himself.

Dark Knight Rises star Anne Hathaway followed in the footsteps of her co-star and director by releasing a statement regarding the tragedy, and
expressed that her heart was broken "for the lives taken and altered by this unfathomably senseless act."

Studio bosses, in the meantime, held true to their word and withheld the box office numbers for the weekend, despite reports circulating that The Dark Knight Rises had made $160 million. They also canceled the film's premieres in Mexico and Japan, while contemplating whether or not to cut a scene from the upcoming crime drama Gangster Squad in which members of the mob opened fired on an unsuspecting audience in a movie theater…or just delay the film entirely.

Lastly, President Barack Obama flew up to Aurora, Colorado today to visit with the victims of this awful tragedy and their families, as well as local officials.

James Holmes is expected to make his first appearance in court tomorrow morning.

In the meantime, we once again send as much love, light, and prayer as we can to everyone still struggling to make sense of this all.

Stay strong.

    Re: Joshua – explain yourself. like i said before the GOP wants to take away my right to chose, i mean i am a women how can i be trusted to make the proper decision regarding my body. but please let any dumb ass with money buy any kind of auto or simi auto gun he wants. what is that kind of gun for anyway? home protection, hunting, making unsuspecting city folk squeal like a pig. Of is it to take out as many people at one time as you can. realistic they should be outlawed to the general public, so unarmed people who only want to watch Batman or get through a day of school stand a chance.

    Re: RELALA – You're simply a product of fear mongering. You aren't aware of the numbers at hand. You just simply hop on the bandwagon under wrong conclusions put out by anti-gun news outlets. 311 million people in this nation, 200 million firearms. Theres almost one gun per person. Half of our population owns a gun. A quarter owns firearms similar to this. Every person I know has a semi automatic rifle with a 30rd magazine. In 13 years, 5 PEOPLE total. Get that? Can you get that through your head, 5 people, in 13 years went on a killing spree..FIVE OUR OF THREE HUNDRED AND 11 MILLION, and you wan't to take away the guns of 150+ million LAW ABIDING CITIZENS that would never use their gun for harm? Shut up, just shut up and don't breed. I do love how you think abortion should be ABSOLUTE. But our constitutional right should be taken away..Thats hilarious.
