James Holmes Associate Interviewed - Batman Massacre Suspect Still Acting Like the Joker in Jail

Jul 22, 2012
Holmes is in solitary confinement and spitting at the guards - he is still acting like the Joker, an inmate has said.

A person first identified as an associate of James Holmes has been interviewed in Aurora, Colorado.

Holmes is the suspect in the shooting spree Friday at the Century 16 Movie Theaters in the Denver area suburb.

12 were killed and more than three dozen people were shot during an assault at a movie theatre midnight premiere of the latest Batman film "The Dark Knight Rises."

There have been reports that the person interviewed is a second suspect, but according to TMZ, those reports are "unconfirmed and inaccurate."

The website cites Aurora PD who says:

"There are multiple unconfirmed and inaccurate news reports about a second suspect. In regards to those reports: An associate of Holmes was interviewed this evening. There is no reason to believe that he is involved. Further details of this investigation will not be released at this time."

According to FOX News, police were looking for this associate because he was the only student from Holmes' program police had not been able to reach.

He still thinks he is the Joker...

According to police, Holmes referred to himself as "The Joker."

Pictures taken of Holmes for his active profile show the original color of his hair has been bleached out and died orange.

Now a new report reveals he has remained in his murderous 'Joker' persona after arriving at the Arapahoe Detention Center, a jailhouse worker told the Daily News.

Are inmates threatening James Holmes in prison?

"All the inmates were talking about killing him. Everyone was looking for an opportunity. It's all they could talk about," a recently released inmate told the NY Daily News.

The paper says Holmes is in solitary confinement and was placed on suicide watch.

A jail employee said Holmes "hasn't shown any remorse" while an unidentified inmate told the paper, "He was spitting at the door and spitting at the guards. He's spitting at everything. Dude was acting crazy."

Holmes is due in court for the first time on Monday.
