The Colorado shooter was under Psychiatric Care at time of massacre, according to new documentation released.
On Wednesday, it was revealed that a package. mailed by the Colorado shooter, James Holmes, to a Psychiatrist at University of Colorado Anschutz medical campus in Aurora, Colorado, was found.
The notebook or manifesto if you will, contained drawings and images. The images were reported to be stick-figures shooting at other stick figures.
In a most tragic turn of events, the unopened notebook was found too late. It sat unopened in a mail room at the University. It is believed that the notebook was mailed prior to the shooting.
It was unknown if the Colorado Shooter was under Psychiatric care at time of massacre or the Psychiatrist was a friend.
The Psychiatrist has been identified a Dr Lynn Fenton. Oddly enough, her page has disappeared from the University pages. A snapshot of the leftover remnant is listed below. From the remnant that is left, it appears that she went by Dr. Lynn Fenton with out the e however on the Colorado Medical Board website, her name is spelled with an e.
According to the Colorado Medical Board website, Dr Lynne Fenton had been disciplined by the Colorado Medical Board in 2004.
She prescribed Xanax to herself and she also prescribed the sleep aid Ambien at least 3 times to her husband. She also prescribed the allergy medication Claritan to both she and her husband. Vicodin and Lorazepam, strong painkillers were prescribed for an employee as well..
It is not known if the University’s decision to completely take down any information regarding Dr. Fenton on their website had to do with the revelations that the Colorado Shooter, James Holmes, was her patient or because of the information about her disciplinary background that has been made public. Perhaps it will taken down in an attempt to protect her privacy.
According to CNN, Dr Fenton worked as a physician in private practice in Denver, CO from 1994 to 2005, and was chief of physical medicine with the U.S. Air Force in San Antonio, Texas, in the early 1990s.
