(Newser) – Police say James Holmes planned his Colorado massacre months in advance, and a new report from Fox News suggests that he sent a notebook with details to a psychiatrist ahead of time. Unfortunately, it wasn't discovered until Monday—it apparently sat unopened in a mailroom at the University of Colorado for about a week.

"Inside the package was a notebook full of details about how he was going to kill people," a source tells Fox. "There were drawings of what he was going to do in it—drawings and illustrations of the massacre." It remains unclear why Holmes would have sent the notebook to the psychiatrist in question; he wasn't necessarily a patient, though he could have met the psychiatrist during his stint as a student in the university's neurosciences program.

So not a single one of you considers that this crazy mofo is maybe on the well-known prescription crazy drugs like antidepressants (SSRIs) or worse? You sons-of-bitches are no better than the Middle Ages scumbags screaming WITCH WITCH at innocent women,etc.
