I have to agree with Char-Lee that this young man is probably suffering from thyroid disease.
Everything points to this conclusion.
The pictures show the classic signs of mixed hypo and hyper thyroidism.
The proptosis of the eyes is classic and telling that the condition has not been treated effectively.
Also the description of his recent life is that of a person suffering early onset bipolar disorder being the elevated mood with increasing antisocial
tendances and that he also had a very active mind resulting in his high achievements at school.
I’m not saying he has bipolar disorder I’m just saying he to me obviously has what appears to be thyroid disease which can result in similar
behaviour to that which is expressed by a bipolar person.
He may have also bipolar but that should be determined by a psychiatrist.
It is possible that he has been misdiagnosed and treated with antidepressants by a local doctor and if he has bipolar disorder tendances be they the
sole medical problem or secondary to thyroid disorder then the antidepressants would have sent him into a very manic phase in his life with possible
schizophrenic episode with the resulting problem occurring.
This is very similar in my opinion to what happened with Eric Harris in the Columbine massacre where he did probably have primarily bipolar disorder
and it was wrongly diagnosed as depression and he was subsequently treated with an anti depressant.
The difference is Erics primary medical problem was probably undiagnosed bipolar where I think James Holmes bipolar behaviour with secondary
schizophrenia is probably secondary to him primarily having an inadequately treated thyroid condition.
Pleas don’t pay too much attention to the changes in his eyebrows or this mole all of which are easy to manipulate or alter. The change may be the
possible thyroid problem but it may and probably is not.
I am so sorry to those families who are hurt by this. Please take care Mark
