According to a new report, James Holmes actually alerted a psychologist at the University of Colorado to his plans to commit mass murder... only the recipient never opened the package in question.

Fox News says the Colorado shooting suspect mailed a notebook "full of details about how he was going to kill people" to the school's mail room, which is where police and FBI agent found it this week.

“There were drawings of what he was going to do in it - drawings and illustrations of the massacre," an insider with knowledge told Fox, adding that the photos drawn in a spiral-bound notebook’s pages depict a gun-wielding stick figure opening fire on other stick figures.

The package has reportedly been sitting in the mailroom since July 12 and was never delivered to the professor to whom it was addressed. It is now in the hands of the FBI.

It's unclear if the recipient ever had any contact with Holmes, but he or she treats patients at a psychiatry outpatient facility on campus. Holmes was a student at the school’s neuroscience doctoral program until a few weeks ago.
