Nearly 4,000 emails released by the University of Colorado offer new insight into accused movie theater shooter James Holmes, including that he had a romantic relationship with another grad student.

 

Late in the morning after the shooting, a professor wrote to another colleague: “[He] had a brief romantic relationship with one of the grad students in my program last fall. She, fortunately, it turns out is in India right now. She knows, and is pretty freaked out.”

 

Several media organizations obtained the 3,800 emails -- KDVR has more details.

 

 

 

“We obtained these emails under an open records request to the university. They are emails either to or from James Holmes, or emails that contain his name. Many of them look like this with the words ‘Privileged - Redacted in full.’”

 

The emails also reveal Holmes was not close to any students in his program, but had a few friends in other departments. 

 

“Holmes expressed fantasies about killing a lot of people more than a month before the shootings, and that a doctor who was treating him decided against holding him for a 72-hour mental evaluation.”

 

The doctor reportedly declined to hold Holmes because he was in the process of leaving the school. Holmes will be back in court on Monday.
