Response to inquiries about today’s media reports
AURORA, Colo. – We cannot comment on anything regarding the ongoing criminal investigation into the theater shooting in accordance with the order of Judge Sylvester on July 23, 2012.
The relevant section is included below.
We can, however, explain generally how mail is delivered on campus. The University centrally receives mail from the United States Postal Service. The University then delivers the mail to the address on the Anschutz Medical Campus the same day it is received. For example, mail delivered on a Friday is delivered on Friday. The University’s mail service is not open on Saturday. Saturday mail is sorted and delivered Monday morning. The University does not log or track mail/packages unless it requires a signature from the United States Postal Service.
