The Crime Museum, located in Washington DC, has acquired items that one of the theater shooting victims wore during the shooting
Last week the jury in the trial of James Holmes found him guilty on all counts of first-degree murder, helping bring some closure to the surviving victims and families. Working with one of the survivors, the National Museum of Crime & Punishment has acquired the jacket and purse worn during the vicious attack. The items will be put on display at the Crime Museum, in keeping the museum’s mission to stay as current as possible.
“We always try to work with victims whenever possible to share their stories and experiences,” states Janine Vaccarello, chief operating officer of the Crime Museum. “We are thankful that we are able to work with this survivor and keep victims at the forefront of what happened at the theater that night.”
