Accused ‘Dark Knight’ Gunman James Holmes Shared Plans Days Before Massacre (VIDEO)

As the investigation continues into the tragic Dark Knight Rises movie massacre, police learned that accused gunman James Holmes tried to share details about his deadly plan days before.

Investigators say Holmes mailed a notebook "full of details about how he was going to kill people" to a University of Colorado psychiatrist before the attack, but the package sat unopened in a mail room for a week.

On Monday, police and FBI agents were called to the school after a professor, who is also a psychiatrist that treats students, alerted them that he may have received a package from the alleged killer. That package ended up being from another student, but after searching the entire mail room, they found a spiral notebook from Holmes.

“There were drawings of what he was going to do in it -- drawings and illustrations of the massacre," a source told Fox News. It showed gun-wielding stick figures shooting down other stick figures. Investigators said it had been in the mail room since July 12, nearly a week before he killed 12 people at that Aurora, Colorado theater.

It's absolutely devastating to think what could have happened if that package were detected sooner. It's a cruel and sad twist of fate. Right now, it's unclear why the notebook wasn't delivered to the psychiatrist. They also don't know if the doctor had actually treated Holmes, who had dropped out of the school's neuroscience program. But what is crystal clear to everyone is that this attack was carefully planned and monstrous beyond words.
