    The attorney for James Holmes's family, Lisa Damiani, said she could not comment on the whereabouts of Holmes’s family, but insisted that they support the shooting suspect, during a press conference on Monday. Holmes is accused of killing 12 people and wounding 58 during a midnight showing of The Dark Knight Rises on Friday in Aurora, Colorado, and he appeared in court on Monday. Damiani read a statement from Holmes’s mother, Arlene Holmes. Arlene Holmes reportedly told ABC News “you have the right person,” in the statement, Damiani said Holmes “was referring to myself” when asked if she had a 24-year-old son named James who lived in Aurora.
