Alleged Aurora gunman James Holmes mailed a notebook "full of details about how he was going to kill people" to a University of Colorado psychiatrist before the July 20 attack that left 12 dead and 58 injured. The package apparently remained unopened in a mailroom for as long as a week before it was discovered Monday. "There were drawings of what he was going to do in it — drawings and illustrations of the massacre," a law enforcement source told Fox News. The sketches in the notebook, which is now in the possession of the FBI, included a stick figure shooting at other stick figures. It's not yet known whether Holmes had ever contacted the psychiatrist before sending the package.
