UPDATE 2: Now they say they didn’t look in the package of “stick figure drawing” confessions and that news reports about them contain significantly untrue details. They claim they didn’t examine the contents of the box. What? No stick figure drawing confession? What a shame.
UPDATE: Now the defense attorneys are saying James was a patient of Lynne Fenton, the medical school’s student mental health director and that the book is protected under doctor-patient confidentiality laws. See update after article for quote and link.
(U.S. Postal Service spokesman David Rupert) said no one has contacted the Postal Service for assistance in the investigation.”
Only in America, folks.
Fox News is standing by their original timeline (read my first article on the story when it broke) which stated that the package that was “discovered” at the university mail-room containing a notebook with what amounts to “stick figure” drawing confession from James Holmes, was there since July 12th. You will remember that quickly after the story came out, the people shaping the narrative of this investigation made some radical adjustments to the story for obvious reasons (lawsuits and lots of them). Fox is insisting that their “unnamed source” is more reliable than a university spokesman who would certainly be motivated by protecting the institution from potential liability claims, so they are standing firm on their story. And as it just so happens, the feds don’t seem very interested in tracking this package through the postal service like they did all those others. In my experience, if you don’t look for something, it’s because you don’t want to find it.
I wonder why that is.
