Colorado Mass Murder Suspect Sent Advance Warning to University

Sadly, the opportunity to head off the catastrophe was missed by the mail room.

(SALEM) - James Holmes is the suspect in custody for the killings at the Batman premiere in Colorado last week. He was a student at the the University of Colorado’s neuroscience doctoral program until a few weeks ago.

According to a new report, he actually alerted the school authorities before allegedly committing mass murder.

He mailed a notebook "full of details about how he was going to kill people" to the school's mail room, but no one opened the information until after the suspect, Holmes, told them about it and then the police and FBI agent found it- at the University. Too late.

“There were drawings of what he was going to do in it - drawings and illustrations of the massacre," a Fox report said, according to "an insider with knowledge", and said that the pictures hand drawn in a spiral-bound notebook depict a gun-wielding stick figure opening fire on other stick figures.

The University says that the package has been sitting in the mail room since July 12th and was never even delivered to the professor to whom it was addressed. The FBI has it now.

At this point, it is unknown if the would-be recipient ever had any personal contact with Holmes. It has been reported that the professor treats patients at a psychiatry outpatient facility on campus.

There are many weird discrepancies with this story that don't add up. One of the big ones is that the post office spokesman stated that the FBI hasn't even asked them to trace the package with the "full confession" This package is the most vital piece of evidence in the prosecutions trial and nobody even knows really where the package came from. Here's a great story about it.
