DENVER -- A profile for a man whose name and appearance matched Colorado shooting suspect James Holmes has been removed from a dating website.

Match.com spokesman Matthew Traub confirmed that the profile was posted before the movie theater massacre.

The profile included the question, "Will you visit me in prison?" and said, "I spend a lot of time thinking about the future, mind (equals) blown."

The profile photo showed a man whose hair is reddish orange, similar to Holmes' hair when he appeared in court Monday.

The profile also said: "The first thing people usually notice about me are My soul penetrating eyes. Woah that's deep."

Aurora police didn't immediately return a telephone message seeking comment.

Meanwhile, Holmes remains in solitary confinement in a Colorado jail, as prosecutors build their case against him.

A team of lawyers spent about 90 minutes Tuesday inside the movie multiplex in Aurora where Holmes allegedly went on a deadly shooting rampage. Crews started setting up a chain link fence around the building while people continued to flock to a memorial nearby for the victims.

Survivors are offering new details about that night, saying the gunman stalked around the theater shouting and appearing to target people. Holmes is accused of methodically stockpiling weapons and explosives at work and at home that police say he used to kill 12 people and wound 58 more at the theater.

Families of the victims have begun preparing for funerals. The first is planned for Wednesday. At 51, Gordon Cowden was the oldest of those killed.
