Obviously, the midnight movie theater massacre in Aurora, Colorado was a big international news. A high profile event like that is bound to attract a lot of attention and with it – a lot of possible fakery. Everybody is all too keen to see crime scene photos from the Dark Knight shooting and that can propel people into bringing anything up to claim that they have the real crime scene pics.
With this prologue out of my way, I’m sharing these photos with you in belief that they could be genuine crime scene photos of the Aurora massacre aftermath. Blood splatter on the sidewalk looks pretty real to me – in terms of both color and shape. Likewise, the car, the assault rifle James Eagan Holmes used, the ATF agents – everything looks very authentic so there’s a good chance the photos are genuine.
As we all know, crime scenes are quickly contained by the authorities in the first world countries so leakage of genuine photos or videos is not as common as in developing countries. In this case, the photos appear to be aerial so they were either taken from a helicopter or from a nearby tall building, though varying angles tend to hint the helicopter.
Give me your input, Best Gore detectives. What do you reckon? Are these genuine crime photos taken after the Aurora massacre or are we looking at a fugazy?
Props to Best Gore member W3 TeRRoRiiZe for those:
