Real life monster James Holmes, the same monster who killed 12 people and injured 70 others during his shooting spree before a midnight showing of The Dark Knight Rises, has had two of his internet dating profiles revealed due to prosecutors investigating what evidence can be used against him in court to prove he knew the killing spree he was planning was wrong. The two profiles, one from Adult Friend Finder and one from Match.com, were both headlined with the question, “Will You Visit Me In Prison?”
The Match.com account was created in April of 2012 and the Adult Friend Finder was created just 15 days before the Colorado shootings. Judge Carlos Samour wrote that both of the evidence from the online dating websites could be used in the trial as evidence of intent, deliberation, culpable mental state and sanity of Holmes. The judge has already rejected one defense attempt to suppress the evidence from the websites.
It’s so creepy when you think about how many people use these dating websites to find love in the modern age, and what would tip you off to the fact Holmes had enormous mental issues other than his bizarre headline? Granted, his hair color used in his profile pictures was a creepy dayglo orange, but some people might find that attractive. He said in the ads he is a “light, social drinker” and that his penis size was “short/average,” but that wouldn’t tell you he was a monster either. In the Adult Friend Finder ad he said he was “looking for a fling or casual sex gal. Am a nice guy. Well, enough as nice as a guy who does these sort of shenanigans.” Which, well, at least to me, makes me wonder what sort of shenanigans he meant, looking for casual sex on the internet or murdering and injuring people?
From the Denver Channel.com:
The first three days of motions involve Holmes’ online dating profiles on Adult FriendFinder and Match.com. Prosecutors obtained his online history showing when the accounts were created and accessed. Both profiles included the tagline, “Will you visit me in prison?”
The defense contends that the searches of the website profiles were done in violation of Holmes’ rights.
“The burden is on the prosecution to prove what they did was legitimate and met Constitutional scrutiny,” said Recht.
The next two weeks will involve prosecutors calling witnesses to prove to the judge that the evidence searches were legal and constitutional.
