US cinema shooter's eerie online message

2012-07-23 13:16

Cape Town - An online profile of the 24-year-old suspected of killing 12 people and wounding 58 others at a premiere of the latest Batman movie The Dark Knight Rises has surfaced with an eerie message: "Will you visit me in prison?" set as his status.

According to reports, James Holmes set up the account on 5 July on AdultFriendFinder as 'ClassicJimbo'. On the profile, an orange-haired Holmes says he is "Looking for a fling or casual sex girl".

"Am a nice guy," he says. "Well as nice enough of a guy who does these sort of shenanigans."

He continues to state that he is a "light/social drinker" but declines to say whether he uses drugs or not.

Searches for other profiles of Holmes on social networks have so far come up empty.

Holmes is in custody and is expected to appear in court on Monday.

    His parents were aware of his problems and did nothing they belong in the cell next to him.

      It's easy to say that, but most parents will not believe their child is capable of these kind of acts. Even if it is a solid 100% fact most parents are blind to such faults in their children. Would you believe your son is capable of mass murder?

      Where does it stand anything about his parents? He is a grown adults who lives on his own!

      james + jaco - and you know for a fact that they "did nothing" ??? Trust me, some people are plain born evil and nothing you say or do, no amount of discipline,therapy or any other method while they grow up makes any difference. Been there, done that. Until such time as they actually do something to get the police involved, you are snookered. In South Africa you can forget about getting social services department on to get involved in any way whatsoever. Just thank your lucky stars you are not in that position.

      James and Jacob - dumb and dumber.

      There is more to this story! An Arapahoe County Court judge has granted a request to seal the case against James Holmes" (Question is WHY?) The motion, filed in Arapahoe County court, asks for the records in the case to be sealed, including search warrants, affidavits, orders and the "case file." The District Attorney's affidavit says prosecutors are investigating first-degree murder charges against Holmes, but that disclosure of the court records would be "contrary to public interest" and "could jeopardize the ongoing investigation." (Question is Who is behind all of this?)

    those eyes tell the whole story - evil lives here and it's just waiting to get out.

      chris.debeer1 - 2012-07-23 14:07

      Ok now that is perception for you!! I looked at him and thought,what went wrong in this bright eyed kid to change to THIS monster!! You see a monster

      stefan.vanderspuy - 2012-07-23 14:40

      The photo also looks pretty dated; looks about 16-17 on this photograph.

      john.turner.58760608 - 2012-07-23 14:50

      What a dumb statement! On this basis 90% of the adult population would be behind bars or executed if people were judged by such stupid perceptions.

      elmarie.viljoen.7 - 2012-07-23 17:08

      I agree with Chris here! I look at him and think what went wrong, he sure does not look like a killer.

      cgaybba - 2012-07-23 18:06

      I'm not taking sides, but evil appears in the most attractive and beautiful ways. That is why evil is so dangerous.

  • zaakiro - 2012-07-23 14:07

    So this is the "Terrorist" that killed & wounded innocent people, why waste time with a court appearance, send him straight to Guantanamo

      john.moodley.7 - 2012-07-23 14:15

      Straight to the gas chamber more like it.

  • john.moodley.7 - 2012-07-23 14:13

    He looks like a Ted Bundy, Serial Killer type

  • richard.hipkin - 2012-07-23 14:30

  • felix.lee.507 - 2012-07-23 22:07

    Quite a portrait. With pupils dilated and goofy grin, one can only ask if he was on meds when it was taken. Or perhaps it was a dark studio.
