RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) - As funerals begins in Aurora, Colorado, investigators are now reportedly reading through papers shooting suspect James Holmes allegedly sent a University of Denver psychology professor.

The reports say the papers include drawings and details about the shootings. The package was mailed to the university, but never made it to its recipient because it was still being processed in the mail center.

Thursday, CBS 6 invited Dr. Micah McCreary, a VCU associate professor of psychology, on to the set to discuss whether or not writings like this are a cry for help or a manifesto penned by a killer wanting more of the limelight.

McCreary responded to the questions by saying that preventative measures could have been taken had the papers been received and read in time. He cited his own experiences as proof.
