What Do Colorado Shooter James Holmes And Obama Staffer Alex Okrent Have In Common?
Western Journalism ^ | 7/23/12 | Kris Zane

Posted on 07/23/2012 12:18:24 PM PDT by Nachum

Bloggers have been noticing since the Colorado massacre that James Eagan Holmes lacks what is called a “digital footprint”—that is, when one does a normal Google search or even an advanced Google search (using date, filetype, special keywords, etc.) of James Holmes, James Eagan Holmes, or Jimmy Holmes, you get nothing on this individual prior to the shooting.

As anyone who has Googled their own name knows, anyone that walks the face of this Earth is found all over the Internet—schools they went to, clubs, social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, etc.

Prior to the shooting, there is absolutely nothing about James Holmes. I personally spent about twelve hours doing extensive searches. Well known private investigator Bill Warner searched Social Security, credit rating, etc. databases and came up with nothing. One calls these kinds of results “off the grid.” Usually these relate to some guy in the middle of the desert living off of solar power, living in a bunker waiting for the end of the world, not a neuroscience Ph.D. grad student like Holmes.

What makes it doubly suspicious is the fact that James Holmes was in school via government grant to get his PhD in Neuroscience.

That makes his lack of a “footprint” almost impossible.

Okay. read it now. Seems to be more about Okrent than Holmes. Is interesting though that this guy missed the adult friend finder that others found so soon after the shootings.

Bloggers have been noticing since the Colorado massacre that James Eagan Holmes lacks what is called a “digital footprint”

This claim is specious at best. He didn't lack a footprint. Because of the commonality of his name, it is more like his footprint is buried by hundreds upon hundreds of other footprints and it will take longer to find his particular footprint.

Take Facebook for example. A search on the name James Holmes yields hundreds of results. Many of these results come up with profiles that have high security settings so you can't see profile images (or they are not actual 'person' images but another avatar) or locations. His footprint there could be buried by all the other James Holmes.

There is also the case where he may go by a different handle on the internet. For example, he seemed to have an obsession with The Joker, so he may have used the name behind the make-up from the 89 movie- Jack Napier. Again, a search on Facebook comes up with hundreds upon hundreds of accounts using that handle.

It may be a long time before we find his footprint unless a friend or classmate comes forward to provide a unique identifier to his online footprint.

When you get through, you will see this nutjobbery:
"Is there some dark secret connecting Alex Okrent’s anti-Israel connections to Obama that put into action an army of Internet scrubbers? Was James Holmes, as Alex Jones at Infowars conjectures, under some kind of mind control, and was his online footprint also scrubbed?"

And in addition to being nuts, he is completely incompetent when it comes to searching the Internet, since others have found an online Holmes footprint.

A simple 30 second search now ZABA found his father in Aurora.

Shooter has to have a net trail out there.

The guy was a psychotic introvert. Why would be go on Facebook and have like 2 friends? The conspiracy theories are embarrassing.

About every six months or so, I go on an internet “walkabout” attempting to find myself. When I do, I take what actions I can to remove myself.

I do not have twitter, facebook, linkedin or any other social media accounts. While it is not impossible to find me, it is rather difficult for most.

He shows up in Intelius, with matching residences and parental names as James “C” Holmes.

Unusual mistake or deliberate?
