“Did you see the movie?” a curious Holmes asked a shocked jail worker during a bizarre exchange on Tuesday, “How does it end?”
According to an employee who was present during the incident, Holmes repeated the question when the jailhouse worker refused to answer.
Holmes,24, “was trying to look like he was sincerely curious,” according to a witness who spoke with the Daily News.
“Like he had no idea why there was anything wrong with what he was saying. It was sick … I think he’s trying real hard to act crazy.”
Holmes allegedly watched the first half of the movie, then went to his car and retrieved his guns, ammo, and equipment and began slaughtering unsuspecting moviegoers.
The jail worker was shocked by Holmes question.
Holmes, who had been spitting on guards, has now been outfitted with a mouth guard.
Holmes willingly gave himself up after he opened fire in the theater. He killed twelve people and injured 58 more.
