Holmes Sent Psychiatrist Letter “Full of Details About How He Was Going to Kill People”

A shame nobody got the letter in time.

James Holmes, the accused gunman in last Friday’s midnight movie massacre in Colorado, mailed a notebook “full of details about how he was going to kill people” to a University of Colorado psychiatrist before the attack, but the parcel sat unopened in a mailroom for as long as a week before its discovery Monday, a law enforcement source told FoxNews.com.

Police and FBI agents were called to the University of Colorado Anschutz medical campus in Aurora on Monday morning after the psychiatrist, who is also a professor at the school, reported receiving a package believed to be from the suspect. Although that package turned out to be from someone else and harmless, a search of the Campus Services’ mailroom turned up another package sent to the psychiatrist with Holmes’ name in the return address, the source told FoxNews.com.

A second law enforcement source said authorities got a warrant from a county judge and took the package away Monday night. When it was opened, its chilling contents were revealed.

“Inside the package was a notebook full of details about how he was going to kill people,” the source told FoxNews.com . “There were drawings of what he was going to do in it – drawings and illustrations of the massacre.”

Among the images shown in the spiral-bound notebook’s pages were gun-wielding stick figures blowing away other stick figures.

The source said the package had been in the mailroom since July 12, though another source who confirmed the discovery to FoxNews.com could not say if the package arrived prior to Friday’s massacre. It was not clear why it had not been delivered to the psychiatrist. The notebook is now in possession of the FBI, sources told FoxNews.com.

If it was sent well earlier he apparently was crying out for help or attention. He probably went further over the edge if in his mind nobody took him seriously.

    What appears to be true is not always what it seems. With a Government in power that is accused of letting Mexican Cartels get thousands of automatic weapons in order to pass anti-gun legislation, how do we know they are not behind the Aurora tragedy. Obama said he was working behind the scene to pass gun restrictions and the techniques and science of brainwashing, funded by the CIA, is over 50 years old. Call it a conspiracy theory but I would put nothing past this Administration no matter how obscene and repugnant this thought is to normal people.

    “Call it a conspiracy theory” ????

    How about unfounded, threadbare, and wacky conspiracy theory?

    “With a Government in power that is accused of letting Mexican Cartels get thousands of automatic weapons in order to pass anti-gun legislation, how do we know they are not behind the Aurora tragedy.” : Accused by Issa? I thought he recanted that there was no evidence of anything of the sort.

    “how do we know they are not behind the Aurora tragedy.” How do we begin to rationally discuss this outlandish suggestion? I’m almost speechless as to the absurdity of this.

    “Obama said he was working behind the scene to pass gun restrictions” : When and where did Obama say what you claim? And who are these “normal people” you refer to???

    All in all, this reminds me of what’s his name, GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain, when he said: “I don’t have the facts to back this up . . .”.

    Wow!!!
