"When he got out to his car, he wasn't programmed no more," Unruh says. "It sounded kind of crazy. He was trying to run it by me, basically."
Officials at the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office Detention Facility deny that this conversation took place, and even claim this type of conversation would be impossible, given the jails layout. Steven Unruh also has a lengthy criminal past, which can be used to discredit his character. But Unruh claims conversing between cells is possible, and the conversation did take place.
What Unruh can prove is that he was booked into the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office Detention Facility on drug and theft charges at 6:44 p.m. on July 19 -- just hours before the attack in Aurora at a midnight showing of The Dark Knight Rises that left twelve dead and dozens wounded.
