Denver Post reporter says 'The defense is expected to seek a competency exam' for suspect

Denver Post reporter Jordan Steffen says police officials have removed the suspect's computer and are still interviewing neighbors to gather more information about the 24-year-old shooting suspect who was found at the scene. Steffen says authorities are also investigating how various materials arrived at the apartment. The suspect received some around forty packages in the months leading up to the massacre.

Steffen says while he did seem introverted, he also seemed very normal to a lot of people. Steffen went on to say, that "whether or not Holmes is deemed competent could determine if the defense will enter a not guilty plea by reason of insanity."
