    An expert on the criminal mind says in some ways Holmes fits the profile of a mass killer.

    For one, he recently had a big loss in his life; he was rejected by the University of Colorado’s PhD program, and he has isolated himself. But in other ways, he’s not at all typical, and may have severe mental illness.
