Here's a photo of Aurora massacre suspect James Holmes working as a summer camp counselor up in the hills of Glendale in 2008.

The camp served underprivileged children and it was run by the Jewish Big Brothers Big Sisters of Los Angeles. The organization's chief executive Randy Schwab said there were never any issues with Holmes, and a counselor who worked with him echoed that sentiment.

The counselor told TMZ, "He was cool. I never would have thought he could kill anybody. He never was anything but nice."
