James Holmes, 24, is seen in this undated handout picture released by The University of Colorado on July 20, 2012.

Police are investigating a profile on a sex website that allegedly belongs to James Holmes, the suspect in Friday’s movie theater massacre in Aurora, Colo. The profile, posted on AdultFriendFinder.com, features an image of a man who appears to be the shooter, sporting the same bright red hair he wore when he opened fire early Friday, the New York Post reports.

The ad seems to allude to a possible crime with questions like, “Will you visit me in prison?” Under the username “classicjimbo,” the poster said he was looking for a “fling” or “casual sex” with women, couples or groups. He described himself as “a nice guy. Well, as nice enough of a guy who does these sort of shenanigans.”

TMZ reports that the user created the profile on July 5, and most of the personal details seem to correspond to the same James Holmes currently in custody. One discrepancy, however, is that the profile lists a height of 6′, whereas the FBI says Holmes stands at 6’3″. According to the website, “Holmes” logged in sometime within the past few days.

Law enforcement officials told TMZ they’re investigating whether or not this profile belongs to the same James Holmes who fatally shot 12 people at a screening of The Dark Knight Rises early Friday. Sources at AdultFriendFinder.com, however, said they’ve tracked the user’s IP address back to Aurora, Colo., and have verified that the user’s address and date of birth indicate that “classicjimbo” is indeed James Holmes.
