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


At 10:21, Christina Aguilera, the manager of environmental compliance for CU's department of environmental health and safety, e-mailed CU police chief Doug Abraham to tell him Holmes used the school's labs and invite him to check if any chemicals were missing. Holmes told police he'd booby-trapped his apartment with explosives.

At 11:10 a.m., computational bioscience professor Larry Hunter sent an e-mail to a colleague indicating that Holmes had a "brief romantic relationship" with a graduate student in Hunter's program. "She knows, and is pretty freaked out," he said.

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.

see thats the problem! news that supports an incomprehensible incident is deemed unworthy yet very relevant. So, what? you want another catastophe and then the news wouldnt be considered slow, huh Chief?

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.
