Funeral for first of 12 Aurora victims

Posted:

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.
