Newly-released records show that James Holmes had what one professor described as a brief romantic relationship, but few friends while attending the University of Colorado, Denver.
The emails regarding James Holmes were released Wednesday in response to a public records request.
One stunned professor emailed a friend that Holmes had briefly had a girlfriend. The woman was in India at the time of the attack.
The chair of the neuroscience department wrote that Holmes was not close to his fellow students in the program but that he had one or two friends in other programs.
The vast majority of the emails were redacted for privacy reasons.
