“He claims he doesn’t know why he’s in jail,” the told the New York Daily News. “He asked, ‘Why am I here?’”

No one in the prison believes him according to the employee. “He needs to save his act for the jury because no one here is buying it. Everyone is convinced he is faking it.”

Holmes is also not happy with the food being served at the jail. “He’s claiming his belly hurts him,” the worker said. “He complained once that he didn’t like the food . . . The guy killed 12 people, and he’s upset that he’s not getting a four-star meal?”

Holmes is being held in solitary confinement over concern the only suspect in the the shooting at the Century 16 movie theater could be harmed by fellow inmates.

Meanwhile,  a judge overseeing the criminal case against the suspect in the movie theater shooting has ordered the University of Colorado Denver not to release his school records.

Authorities say former neuroscience graduate student James Holmes killed 12 people and injured 58 when he opened fire at a midnight showing of the new Batman movie last Friday.

Numerous media organizations, including The Associated Press, filed open records requests for school records about Holmes.

But in an order signed Monday and released by the school Thursday in response to an open records request by the AP, District Court Judge William Blair Sylvester said releasing the information would impede the investigation.
