Reports stemming from celebrity news site TMZ indicate that James Holmes, the 24-year-old man suspected of opening fire inside a crowded movie theater last Friday in Colorado, was frequently involved with prostitutes in the weeks leading up to his alleged rampage.
TMZ claims to have tracked down Holmes' online screen name, finding it linked to a message board where Colorado males post reviews for prostitutes in their local area.
Holmes allegedly posted multiple comments on this prostitution message board, as well as frequented other sex websites.
TMZ claims to have spoken to three of Holmes' suspected prostitutes, two of whom claimed to have had sexual relations with him.
"I had no issues with him … he was really nice," one of the alleged prostitutes, Tiffany, told TMZ.
Holmes also had a Match.com profile under the username "Classic_Jim." The suspect, donning bright orange red hair and long sideburns in his Match.com profile picture, described himself as an agnostic student whose political views were "in the middle of the road."
TMZ has also reported that sources close to the company have confirmed that a man resembling Holmes had a profile on the adult sex website "Adultfriendfinder.com."
The most chilling aspect of Holmes's Adultfriendfinder.com profile, according to TMZ, was Holmes asking in the questions section of the profile "will you visit me in prison?"
Holmes is suspected of killing at least 12 people and injuring 59 others during a midnight showing of "The Dark Knight Rises" at a movie theater in Aurora, Colo., on July 20.
Holmes had four guns with him, one of which was an assault rifle. He sported orange red hair, and told the police when he was arrested by his car outside of the theater that he was "the Joker," a villainous character from the Batman franchise.
