The man accused of opening fire on a Colorado movie theatre allegedly sent a notebook “full of details about how he was going to kill people,” to a University of Colorado psychiatrist, according to a blockbuster story from Fox News.The package, which was found Monday, reportedly sat unopened in the university’s mail room for about a week.

“Inside the package was a notebook full of details about how he was going to kill people,” a source told Fox News. “There were drawings of what he was going to do in it – drawings and illustrations of the massacre.”

Those illustrations included drawings of stick figures with guns “blowing away other stick figures,” Fox News reported Wednesday.

The psychiatrist is also a professor at University of Colorado — Denver, where Holmes was a PhD student before dropping out of the neurosciences program.

Law enforcement officials, including the FBI, declined to comment to Fox News.
