Yeom Pyo Lee, an acquaintance of Aurora theater gunman James Holmes, has been questioned by police after allegedly phoning in a threat in an attempt to have him released from jail. Lee was sought by law enforcement after police received a message from his telephone threatening violence if he wasn’t released from police custody.
Yeom Pyo Lee, thought to be a student in the same PhD program at the University of Colorado-Denver James Holmes dropped, was released by police without being charged after questioning.
Yeom Pyo Lee, who is originally from South Korea, earned a master’s degree in biomedical science from Hallym University before moving to Colorado to study for his doctorate, KDVR reports.
