JAYNA DAVIS: Report No. 1 - OU SUICIDE BOMBING CASE
As FReepers are probably aware, Jayna Davis, indefatigable reporter and author of THE THIRD TERRORIST, is on the case of the OU suicide bomber. A local FReeper is giving her assistance. Here are some of the highlights of our discussion a short time ago:
1 - she has spoken to the feed store owner, Justin Ellison . . . Joel Hinrichs III exhibited strange behavior while in the feed store trying to buy ammonium nitrate . . . the store owner asked why he wanted it, and Hinrichs turned away and started mumbling to himself
2 - Hinrichs was dressed in a photographer's vest that was stuffed . . . a wire was noticed sticking out of it
3 - a plain clothes officer was in the store at the time and witnessed what happened . . . Jayna is not clear who got it, but someone got the plate number to track the guy
4 - they did a background check and he came out clean . . . Jayna reminds us that he was a "lily white," just like McVeigh and Nichols
5 - Norman PD could not confirm much for Jayna because this has gone up the food chain . . . they did answer a few questions about procedure, however . . . this would have gone to a special ops task force . . . but what about the Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF)? . . . Norman, Oklahoma has no budget for an officer or a JTTF office! . . . Jayna was stunned . . . the area around OKC is on the front line . . . Norman was the home of the former chief pilot of Osama bin Laden . . . Moussaoui got his flight training there . . . Atta and Alshehhi visited the Airman Flight School in Norman . . .Minepta's mosque is there . . . the VP recruiter for the overseas Al-Fatah network was in Norman
6 - the police in Norman did their job after the report of the feed store incident . . . they knew it was Hinrichs right away after the bombing - they knew it before DNA tests . . . Jayna wonders if their quick action prevented a major casualty count . . . Jayna wonders if they possible had done a "knock and talk" on him before the event to shake him up
7 - a local reporter who verbally attacked Jayna before is at it again . . . the reporter is kissing up and apologizing to the local Muslim community
8 - a security guard at the stadium would not give Jayna info about whether Hinrichs tried to get in with the backpack at halftime . . . apparently, that may be the time when some of the crowd leaves the stadium and comes back with alchohol - so the guards look for that . . . Jayna thinks that, had he planned it better, there was a possibility that he could have gotten in with the crowd at the beginning of the game
9 - officials are denying that there was something else that did not detonate . . . there are differing stories in the news
10 - how is this for quick action and approval? . . . OU is erecting concrete barriers at the stadium to prevent a truck bombing
11 - Jayna says thanks to all the FReepers . . . YOU GUYS ARE GREAT
Just saw the channel 9 report. I'll try to get the transcript. Apparantly Hinrichs tried to get into Gate 6, but ran away when the guard asked to search the backpack.
This may be old too. I'm going to look at their newer database to see if it looks different.
BTW, you can certainly see the stadium in the upper left corner. Mosque (or at least the address someone gave) is there on that corner where the address is listed. Anyone know where the Parkview Apts are on this image?
You were expecting real time video down-links?
GE is made up of publicly available earth imaging from a variety of sources. You can get newer images of some ares in special collections of overlays - such as Katrina pictures of the gulf. However these are not always of the best resolution as they have not all been cleaned up and contrast matched. See the Google Earth home page and the Google Earth community for info on this. Further, some of these would not be suitable for permanant inclusion - which is why they are overlays. Water will go down eventually.
You can always throw $20 bucks at them to see if the paid service is better.
Precisely why the liberal media wants to keep a lid on it. Can't explain Drudge and conservative talk radio though.
Good work! You nailed it.
The apts are, I believe, at least one of those upside down "U" blocks above and to the left of "Google".
I've tried to locate Elohim City numerous times. Interestingly, it doesn't seem to exist. Let me know if you find anything, please.
The stadium has been redone with another deck east side and parking garage that is now on the westside. If you are looking down at the parking garage gate 7 is at the NE corner of the stadium -- that's where we enter the stadium.
What sort of odor? Can you elaborate or specify? Animal, mineral, chemical?
There's another thread with a link to the video.
"What sort of odor? Can you elaborate or specify? Animal, mineral, chemical?"
Definately animal. Body odor.
More info from Jayna Davis on Muslim activity in Norman, OK. Keep a sharp eye on all related threads for tie-ins to the OKC-911 connection.

I can't get it to open right now either. But if this is true, might be evidence of shrapnel in the bombing materials.
I haven't a clue what the plastic bottles might be for except chemicals...?
Mind if I do a copy & paste of that for my blog? With all credit going to you, of course.
Do you know if there are are any security cameras that might have covered the area around the bench, or between the entrance to the stadium and the bench?
I've been lurking off and on since Saturday, so maybe this has been covered and I didn't see it --
