Holmes later reported having childhood experiences of 'nail ghosts' coming out of the walls or banging on the walls at night, though it is not clear from the media reporting whether they were nightmares or night terrors or waking hallucinations.
As he got older, those who knew him say he was socially awkward, found it hard to make casual conversation and often answered questions with a simple ‘Yes’ or ‘No’.
On August 24, Holmes was sentenced to 12 consecutive life sentences, plus 3,318 years in prison, without the possibility of parole.
According to Datta, Holmes often made corny jokes that made other people feel uncomfortable.
Their relationship lasted for about six months but ended because she only wanted a casual relationship and she felt distant from him.
