James Holmes: Timeline of CU e-mails in twelve hours after shooting shows confusion, fear


Just before 9 a.m., Jenny-Lynn Ellis, a counselor at the CU-Denver Counseling Center and a key member of the Behavioral Evaluation and Threat Assessment Team, e-mailed colleagues "on the off chance he was a client of ours." It would later be revealed that a psychiatrist who was seeing Holmes reported him to the BETA Team.

I think its odd that Ribera was worried about other students being in danger? Why would she think this since Holmes was in custody? What does she know?

@dcCU Because he was friends with 1-2 students in campus. There was a chance they were also dangerous if they were actually associated with Holmes.

Very interesting news Pesos. Now it is more clear regarding witnesses that are not ready to be interviewed by defense. something about a P35 motion. I will need to recheck articles and notes. and there are still so many unexplained loose ends. guess we will have to wait until march. thank you for your response.
