Now we see a far more serious consequence: it appears that Holmes mailed detailed plans of what he planned to do to a psychiatrist at the medical school--but the package, which may have been there a week, was apparently not delivered:
The FoxNews.com report said Police and FBI agents were called to the University of Colorado Anschutz medical campus in Aurora on Monday morning after a 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.
After obtaining a search warrant, police took the package away and discovered its contents.
FoxNews.com quoted its source saying: "Inside the package was a notebook full of details about how he was going to kill people. There were drawings of what he was going to do in it - drawings and illustrations of the massacre."
Images in the notebook included drawings of stick-figures shooting at other stick figures, the FoxNews.com report said.Can you imagine how this might have turned out differently if the package had been opened before Thursday night?
UPDATE: The July 26, 2012 Christian Science Monitor indicates the package arrived Monday, and was not delayed on being opened. No lost opportunity on this.
