Jessica Ghawi (Redfield) Picture and Bio, Batman Massacre Victim

Jessica Ghawi, a woman who went by Jessica Redfield on Twitter, was one of the victims in the horrific shooting that took place in Aurora, Colorado at the midnight premiere of Dark Knight Rises. Ghawi was among the 12 people shot and killed when suspected gunman James Holmes opened fire in the packed theater.

Ghawi was an aspiring sportscaster and kept a blog and prolific Twitter feed. She wrote a blog entry on June 5 of this year detailing how she left a mall in Toronto just before a man opened fire on a food court, killing one person. Ghawi wrote about opting for a "greasy burger" instead of the sushi. She posted: "Had I had sushi, I would’ve been in the same place where one of the victims was found."

After getting her meal, she decided to go outside and get fresh air, for no apparent reason. Three minutes after her purchase, the gunman fired shots inside the mall food court.

Last night, Ghawi tweeted about having to "coerce" a guy to see the late screening with her.

Her brother, a firefighter and student, tweeted and confirmed the death of his sister. "It appears that my sister has been fatally wounded in a mass shooting at a movie premiere in Denver, CO," he wrote. He also wrote a post on his website to share how he found about out the senseless death and his trip to Denver.
