The FBI recovered a package that apparently was mailed by James Eagan Holmes after the shooting suspect told investigators to look for the item on the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, a senior law enforcement official told NBC News on Wednesday.
The source told NBC that the package contained writings about killing people, but could not go into more detail.

Looks like someone is going to get sued for not opening their mail.
That’s a big 10-4,
My understanding is that the addressee was not given the package promptly. Mail room flunkee on the hook?
The article doesn’t mention when it was actually mailed. It was probably still in the mailstream at the time of the shooting.
From the story:
It was unclear how long the package had been in the mail room before its discovery.
If the addressee was a professor (or other staff member), I would not expect receipt before Monday...not sure when it was mailed...
If you’ve been around a college in the summer, you’d probably find professors on campus are about as rare as Tea Party members.
That package may have sat there until September, LOL.
On what grounds? In what legal system?
The days of profs getting their own mail are long gone. I’m at a Big Ten school. The mail comes to the department and is distributed from there into personal mailboxes.
I know campus mail can take a long time, but this seems much too long, summer or not. I’d be ticked as hell if my campus mail, or my US mail coming through the campus mail room, sat around for 10 days or so before it reached me. An extra day or so is typical, however.
I’m sure someone will try to make something of this, but I don’t see any liability.
