Lone Mastermind Theory: No Leg to Stand On

Hammer here –Federal Death Row.

One of the mysterious clues in my new book — Deadly Secrets: Timothy McVeigh and the Oklahoma City Bombing — that I hear the most buzz about is the “extra leg” recovered from the rubble of the Murrah Building.

The government wants everyone to forget about about this gigantic clue. But instead, someone should seriously investigate it, because amazingly, that has never been done.

What about this extra leg, which was never identified? Very suspiciously, it was dressed in military-type fatigues and a combat boot. No one has ever come forward to claim a dead family member or friend who happened to go missing at the time of the bombing. Experts at McVeigh’s trial in Denver testified that the assumption has to be that the leg belonged to one of the bombers!

Former Oklahoma State Medical Examiner Dr. Fred B. Jordan testified that despite all efforts, his office was never able to identify whose leg it was. Is this clue not important? There’s no innocent reason a person dressed in military garb would have business at the Murrah Federal Building and not be identified. Any one with legitimate business there would have been reported missing. No one was.

Incredibly, that unidentified leg and other human remains were buried close to the Oklahoma State Capitol Building. There is some type of a memorial there now. A tourist attraction for the City. Doesn’t that seem strange?  Salt Lake City attorney Jesse C. Trentadue sought answers to the mystery of the leg. He filed a Freedom of Information request with the FBI. Its response was that no DNA testing was ever done on the extra leg.

Really? Why not? I mean, that would be the logical thing to do — especially as part of what was billed as the most massive criminal investigation ever, and one that presumed, at least in the beginning, that at least one unidentified fugitive bomber had helped McVeigh carry out the crime.

For sure, it’s late coming. But it’s not too late for this testing. As I concluded again and again in Deadly Secrets, there is a treasure trove of hard evidence waiting to be investigated in the bombing case. Any one of these clues could be the one to crack the case wide open.

Surely the Oklahoma City Medical Examiner’s Office kept a specimen for testing. Why isn’t there a cry for answers? Who was this person who apparently died in the bomb blast: victim or perpetrator?

Read Deadly Secrets and you will find the likely answer, that is, if McVeigh was telling me the truth.

Right now, another terrorist bomber has captivated our attention: the New York City Car Bomber. For sure, our country seems to be the target of foreign terrorism. The perpetrators seem to be sleeper agents recruited here.  But did this all start with Oklahoma City? Can you name one act of terrorism against the USA by an outside source before OKC, other than Pearl Harbor?

There’s more to come. My research associates are working on the mystery leg and other clues we uncovered in Deadly Secrets.

We’ll keep you posted.

Meanwhile, please play back to me. Tell me what you think of the case laid out in Deadly Secrets — and where you think the investigation should go next.

Let’s continue this conversation.
