This Sunday marks the 25th anniversary of the day the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building was destroyed in a terroristic act. Author Jeanne Bishop’s new book Grace from the Rubble – Two Fathers’ Road to Reconciliation After the Oklahoma City Bombing explores the relationship that developed between Timothy McVeigh’s father Bill, and Bud Welch, the father of one of the bombing’s victims.

Oklahoma City suffered worst domestic terrorism attack in American history when a man named Timothy McVeigh blew up a federal government building on April 19, 1995.

 

Now 24 year old Jerry Varnell of Sayre is on trial for attempting to bomb the BancFirst building, just a few blocks away from what is now a memorial dedicated to the 168 people McVeigh killed. Evidence clearly shows Varnell participated in the plot but his agency and wherewithal are in question.

Lawyers for Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev are again drawing parallels between the media coverage of their client's case to the coverage received by Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh in an effort to have the trial moved out of Massachusetts.

In a filing Monday, defense attorneys wrote that because "the crimes charged inflicted actual injury on the entire local population" and "greater Boston, was itself, a victim," the case is similar to the McVeigh case.

McVeigh's 1997 trial was moved to Denver.
