He doesn't take his blood stained clothes off. He also notices that the stolen goods are still in his pockets, and again is astonished at his own irresponsibility. He fears the disease of losing his reason, and seems to be suffering it quite clearly. Notably, his panicked confusion after his crime is accompanied by a pronounced physical illness: he falls in and out of fitful sleep, shivering, and faints in the police station at the mention of the crime.
