More scary details from the Aurora movie theater shooting today…
James Holmes, the man accused of opening fire and killing 12 people during a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises, reportedly shipped a notebook with his murder plans to the University of Colorado Anchutz. The notebook turned up in a mailroom of a building at the institute.
According to FOX news, FBI agents were called in to examine a package that a psychiatrist and professor at the school received that he believed Holmes to have sent. The package turned out to be a false alarm but the notebook was later discovered.
The FBI is currently in possession of the notebook, which will likely be used to determine a motive for the suspect. Hollyscoop reached out to the university, who were unable to comment on the matter.
“We don't know if it is part of the investigation,” a spokesperson for the college said. “Police have asked us not to comment."
The spiral-bound book Holmes put together is reportedly "full of details about how he was going to kill people." It reportedly contains stick figures with guns shooting at other stick figures.
“There were drawings of what he was going to do in it -- drawings and illustrations of the massacre,” a source told FOX.
What makes it even creepier is that the package with the notebook could have been in the mailroom since July 12, over a week prior to the horrific attack. It is unclear as to the exact arrival time of the package.
It is also unclear as to whether or not the psychiatrist had any previous interactions with Holmes in the past.
