A redheaded prostitute has said she had sex with James Holmes, who allegedly killed 12 people at a movie hall in Colorado, and added that the Batman-obsessed killer dyed his hair the same colour before carrying out the shooting rampage.

Prostitute Monica Hall said that Holmes “would grab her hair, sniff it and repeatedly pester her with questions like, ‘Are you a natural redhead?’” “Whenever I said yes, he would smile,” she was quoted as saying. 

Tressed to kill: James Holmes

“He liked to touch my hair, and he told me the colour was good. When I saw after the shootings that he dyed his hair red, it sent a chill down my spine,” she added.

According to the report, Hall said she had two sexual encounters with Holmes, who injured nearly 58 people during the screening of the latest Batman film The Dark Knight Rises. Their first romp, last August, was ‘relatively tame’, she said. “At the time, Holmes seemed like ‘a nice guy, shy and nervous’,” she added.

Hall said that when Holmes ‘called her again in May to arrange a second sex session, it was a different story’. “He was mean, and during sex he kept gripping my hands and wrists. Next morning, I discovered I had bruises,” she added.
