A Prescription for Murder?

A Prescription for Murder?


With exclusive access to psychiatric reports, police footage and drug company data, reporter Shelley Jofre investigates the mass killings at the 2012 premiere of a Batman film in Aurora, Colorado. James Holmes, a 24-year-old PhD student with no record of violence, murdered 12 people and injured 70 others. Could the SSRI anti-depressants he had been prescribed play a part in the killings? This programme explores the devastating side effects of being prescribed SSRI anti-depressants, that might lead to psychosis, violence, and even mass murder.
