In a statement Wednesday, the university wouldn’t confirm the package’s contents or the sender.

Multiple news outlets have reported that the former neuroscience graduate student accused of killing 12 people in a Colorado movie theater sent a notebook to the university containing scribblings of stick figures being shot.

The university said Wednesday that the package was immediately investigated and turned over to authorities within hours of its delivery Monday.

Citing unnamed law enforcement sources, Fox News’ website reported that James Holmes sent the notebook in a package that had sat unopened since July 12.

In the statement, the university disputed that it received the package on July 12 but did not elaborate.

NO MEDICAL BILLS FOR SOME VICTIMS

Three hospitals taking care of people wounded in the Colorado theater shooting say they will limit or completely wipe out medical bills for the victims.

Some victims, many of them young, are uninsured and face mounting medical expenses.

Children’s Hospital Colorado announced Wednesday it would use donations and its charity care fund to cover the medical expenses of the uninsured victims. For those with insurance, the hospital will waive all co-pays.

HealthOne, which owns the Medical Center of Aurora and Swedish Medical Center, also said it will limit or eliminate charges based on the individual circumstances of the patients.

The other two hospitals, Denver Health Medical Center and University of Colorado Hospital, wouldn’t directly say what they would do. However, they are the state’s top two safety net hospitals and pointed out they provided a combined $750 million in free care last year.
