The photo's release comes a few hours after Holmes made his first appearance in court in Centennial, Colo. Monday. Wearing orange-red hair and looking at times emotional and at other times bleary-eyed, Holmes sat in a maroon jailhouse jumpsuit as Chief Judge William Sylvester advised him of the case.

Authorities say Holmes is not cooperating and it could take months to learn what motivated the mass shooting spree.

Below is video from Holmes' first appearance in court on Monday.
