University of Colorado refuses to speculate on suspect packages

James Holmes was doctoral student and dropped out of his graduate programme at the University of Colorado last month.

Officials were asked tonight about a number of suspicious packages delivered to the building. They refused to speculate about what they contained and said it was a matter for police.

When you have situations like this you sit back and review what you did, and ask did you handle this in the best way. And to our knowledge we did that to the best of our ability.

The university insisted their admissions process chooses the "most qualified and brightest students".
