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.
CU officials were soon drafting talking points to answer the media's questions.
By 10:30 a.m., word that Holmes was a student was making its way around campus.
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.
Five minutes later, a recipient of Hunter's e-mail replied with a question that's still on many people's minds: "Do people think he was unstable before this happened?"
Hunter responded, indicating Holmes had been rejected from a colleague's lab.
