Today, the University of Colorado released about 3,800 e-mails related to accused Aurora theater shooter James Holmes, a neuroscience student at the school who had begun to withdraw more than a month before the July 20 attack. Most of the e-mails we've combed through are unremarkable, but some provide a window into how staff reacted in the immediate aftermath. Read several e-mails below, with more to come.
