(FOX News) – There are new reports that Colorado mass shooting suspect James Holmes sent a notebook detailing how he would kill people to a University of Colorado psychiatrist before the attack.  

But FOX News reports the package containing the notebook set unopened in a mail room for as long as a week before it was found on Monday.  According to the report, authorities were called to the University by the psychiatrist after he thought he had received mail from the suspect.  

That particular package was not from Holmes, but a search of the mail room turned up the package for the suspect.   FOX News reports that a warrant was obtained by law enforcement officials and was opened. That’s when the notebook was discovered with the chilling details inside.

Sources tell FOX News the notebook was full of details and even stick figure drawings of how the massacre would unfold.

Holmes is accused of killing 12 people and injuring 58 when he opened fire inside an Aurora, Colorado theater Friday morning as movie-goers watched the new Batman movie, “The Dark Knight Rises”.
