Fmr. FBI Special Agent Steve Moore on Holmes' homemade death trap

Fmr. FBI special agent Steve Moore weighs in on the exclusive new details surrounding the booby-trapped apartment of shooting suspect James Holmes.

Moore, who primarily worked overseas on crimes and counter-terrorism says, "when you get into that kind of complicated device...you really have to know what you're doing, you really have to put a lot of thought into it... you don't just come up with this kind of thing."

Law enforcement officials said that the apartment which contained 30 homemade explosive devices rigged to a control box in the kitchen, 10 gallons of gasoline in glass containers and various wires would have consumed the entire third floor.
