Aurora Colorado Shooting

Thousands of College Emails Released in Aurora Shooter Case

Letters that might actually be relevant held back, though


More than 1,500 emails to and from accused mass murderer James Holmes were made public for the first time Wednesday. The emails, released by the University of Colorado-Denver, where Holmes was a neuroscience doctoral student, are from his two school accounts.

Holmes, 24, faces 166 charges in the July 20 shooting spree that killed 12 and wounded at least 58 just past midnight during the premiere of "The Dark Knight Rises" in a packed Aurora theater. He is being held without bond.

An additional 2,300 internal university staff emails surrounding his alleged attack were also released.
