Another chilling detail emerged on Thursday during a hearing over whether a notebook James Holmes, the alleged Aurora, Colorado shooter, sent to psychiatrist Dr. Lynne Fenton can be admitted into evidence. The New York Times reports that a lawyer representing Holmes mentioned the after-hours number for the University of Colorado hospital where Dr. Fenton could be reached, and asked her, “Do you know whether James Holmes called that number nine minutes before the shooting started?” She said she didn't know that Holmes had tried to contact her that night.
