AURORA, CO (WKOW) -- The first funeral for a victim of the mass shooting in Aurora, Colorado was held Wednesday.
51 year old Gordon Cowden was the oldest of the victims.
He took his teenage kids to see Batman; they escaped unharmed.
At the University of Colorado, there are new questions about whether the massacre could've been prevented.
The school's Anschutz Medical Campus released a statement saying, "we cannot comment on anything regarding the ongoing criminal investigation".
The statement came after reports surfaced saying suspect James Holmes sent the school a package of materials describing what was about to happen, but no one ever opened it.
