On April 19, 1995, the deadliest domestic terror attack on U.S. soil occurred at the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City.

At 9 a.m. on April 19, 1995, McVeigh and Nichols parked a Ryder truck containing a 4,800-pound bomb near the freight entrance of the building and detonated the bomb. Damage from the explosion spread blocks away from the building, and could be heard from miles away. AS WE WATCHED uses archival footage from ABC

“Mary stayed in touch with Vili in a lot of different ways. One way was to send out messages in the milk bottles that she was — [producing] milk in prison for her babies, so she put little notes in the caps and they went out,” case expert Gregg Olsen explained. “She sent audiotapes out. She had prisoners make phone calls for her because she could not contact him [Fualaau] directly.”

Is Lyle Menendez Married? The Convicted Murderer Has Had Multiple Relationships

If you find it hard to believe that prison inmates serving life sentences for murder can find love behind bars, then you’ll likely find it even more impossible that Lyle Menendez has found it more than once. But is Lyle Menendez married? The convicted killer has actually tied the knot twice since being convicted in 1996 of murdering his parents with his brother, Erik.

Lyle, now 48 years old and serving his life sentence at Mule Creek State Prison in California, married ex-model Anna Erikkson shortly after he was convicted. However, their love was not to last. After hearing that he’d been writing to another woman, effectively “cheating” on her, Erikkson divorced Lyle in 2001 and he ended up remarrying soon after. This time, it was to Rebecca Sneed in 2003, who would later become an attorney. In fact, according to Menendez Brothers: The Bad Sons, which was part

The older brother of JonBenet Ramsey is suing CBS and others for US$750 million ($1billion) over a series that concluded he killed his sister.

In the lawsuit filed yesterday, Burke Ramsey claims that the network, its production company and the experts interviewed in the series on the unsolved murder permanently ruined his reputation. The six-part series aired in September ahead of the 20th anniversary of JonBenet’s death.

The Case Of: JonBenet Ramsey concluded with investigators revealing that after extensive research into the events that happened on the night of the murder they believed Burke Ramsey was responsible for killing his sister, Daily Mail reports.

JonBenet Ramsey grand juror REFUSES to reveal who he believes killed six-year-old beauty queen

One of the grand jurors who viewed evidence related to JonBenet’s murder refused to say who he believes killed the six-year-old beauty queen – after bragging he ‘highly suspects’ he knows the identity of the killer.

The man testified anonymously on Friday night’s episode of 20/20 on ABC, which took a look back at the case 20 years afterwards. He was part of the jury that voted to indict JonBenet’s parents John and Patsy on charges related to the murder of their daughter after a year-long grand jury trial.

The district attorney nullified the findings of his grand jury and declared there wasn’t sufficient evidence to indict the little girl’s parents. Friday night’s juror, however, said he believed John and Patsy should have been tried, based on the evidence he had seen.

But the man told host Amy Robach there would have been no way

JonBenet Ramsey ransom note was written by her MOTHER Patsy claims handwriting expert as grand juror who voted …

A handwriting expert who has examined the ransom note left in the JonBenet Ramsey case says it is very likely that the letter was written by the child beauty queen’s mother Patsy.

‘It’s highly probable that she wrote the ransom note,’ says handwriting expert Cina Wong in a preview for Friday night’s episode of 20/20 on ABC, that will take a look back at the case 20 years after JonBenet’s murder.

Wong spent three weeks examining the note and comparing it to 100 examples of Patsy’s handwriting back in 2000, and found multiple similarities between the two.

For instance, the ransom note had the letter ‘A’ written in four different variations, and Patsy wrote that same letter in those some four ways.

In total, Wong found over 200 similarities in the writing of the ransom note and the 100 samples of Patsy’s penmanship.
