Aurora Tragedy Hits Crystal Lake

A Crystal Lake man was one of the victims of the mass shooting in the Aurora, Colorado movie theater. John Larimar, who graduated from Crystal Lake South High School in 2003, was stationed at Buckley Air Force Base. He went to the midnight showing of the Dark Knight Rises with friends and is remembered by friends and family as a kind humorous person who will be missed. Larimar’s body is being flown back to Illinois by the Navy and will be buried near bis home.

Larimar is one of twelve victims, while dozens more were wounded. There has been a vigil outside of the theater. James Holmes is in custody and expected to face a judge this morning.
