It's hard to blame anybody but James Holmes for the tragic shooting in Aurora, Colorado last month, but one of the victim's mothers believes the Century 16 movie theater should share some of it.
Shirley Wygal lost her 32-year-old daughter, Rebecca Wingo, in the massacre and has hired Jose Baez to prove the theater's culpability.
If that attorney's name sounds familiar it's because it is. He's the guy who defended Casey Anthony so well that she was found not guilty of killing her 2-year-old daughter.
Wygal explained her decision to pursue legal action against the Century 16 by saying:
"When police came that night with official word, Rebecca's baby asked, 'How did he get in?' Dissatisfied with the answer, she asked again. At just 5 years old, she wants to know how it could happen and so do I. If any entity had an obligation to protect the innocent and did not, then every survivor and loved one left behind must hold them accountable. The first step is a timely and thorough investigation. I've engaged a firm large enough to help us all. I am confident in their expertise and appreciate their making this a priority. Rebecca would love these attorneys. As a mom, she'd want her girls to have the truth. As a daughter, she'd insist I find that truth for them."
We wish her the best of luck finding whatever truth there is left to discover.
