the Denver Post reported that Fenton testified Thursday that she stopped treating the suspected gunman on June 11 — just weeks before the shooting. However, just nine minutes before the shooting, Holmes called a University of Colorado switchboard. While it's unclear whether he was trying to reach Fenton, the switchboard can be used to contact faculty members during off hours, CNN reported Thursday. The debate about Holmes' relationship with Fenton, and when it ended, came to a head Thursday afternoon as prosecutors and the defense faced off about whether the state has access to a notebook Holmes allegedly sent Fenton. The notebook is said to contain graphic details about his plans to people. If the pair still had a doctor-patient relationship at the time Holmes reportedly sent the notebook, then it would be protected and off-limits to prosecutors. When asked by the defense whether she knew Holmes called the switched, Fenton replied "I don't know," the Post's John Ingold tweeted immediately after the hearing. Fenton testified Thursday that she contacted a campus police officer with concerns about a patient on June 11, the last day she treated Holmes. However, the defense stopped her from identifying Holmes as the patient. Read more: www.businessinsider.com...
The Times reports that Holmes allegedly texted an acquaintance about a condition called dysphoric mania, a condition associated with bipolar disorder that seldom produces violence but can occasionally cause some patients to experience agitation and "paranoid delusions" -- after which he warned her to stay away because he was "bad news." Additionally, the paper cites an anonymous official as saying, "Nothing Mr. Holmes disclosed to Dr. Fenton rose to the threshold set by Colorado law to hospitalize someone involuntarily."
in 2005 the Colorado medical board reprimanded Dr. Fenton for prescribing anti-anxiety medication to her employee and to herself. As well, she prescribed medication to her husband.
Mr. Holmes had been a shy, awkward boy who once seemed bound for big things. He was a science student from Southern California who won scholarships and internships, graduated “at the top of the top” from the University of California, Riverside, and moved to Colorado in 2011 to take the next step: a doctoral program in neuroscience. But Mr. Holmes struggled through his first academic year at the University of Colorado in Denver. Neighbors from his gang-ridden neighborhood in Aurora described him as a solitary figure, recognizable as one of the few white residents of a largely Hispanic neighborhood, and always alone. He appears to have sought companionship through the Web site Adult Friend Finder, posting a photo of himself with bright orange hair and saying that he was “looking for a fling.” In an online profile, he described himself as a nice guy, or as nice as any man “who does these sorts of shenanigans,” though its authenticity could not be independently verified.
