Oklahoma Police Investigated Hinrichs

The Sooner Bomber…
Still no National News Coverage on the First US Suicide Bomber since 9-11


At a 2 p.m. news conference, Norman Police Department spokesman J.D. Younger said an off-duty, plainclothes officer overheard a conversation Joel Henry Hinrichs III had with the proprietor of a Norman feed store last Thursday at 4 p.m. The conversation centered on a purchase of ammonium nitrate fertilizer.

“I think it’s important to note that it’s not a criminal activity to purchase ammonium nitrate fertilizer,” Younger said.

However, he noted that the context of Hinrichs’ conversation with a manager of Ellison Feed & Seed was suspicious. Younger indicated that the off-duty officer reported that Hinrichs asked about different types of fertilizer and the concentration of ammonium nitrate in each.

Ammonium nitrate was the primary ingredient in the bomb that killed 168 people in the explosion that brought down the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City in 1995.

The plan at that time was for the off-duty officer to complete a written report for submission the following Monday.

But, by Monday, Hinrichs had blown himself up. Younger said that the policeman is a veteran of the Norman police department with 11 years of experience on the force.

NewsOK.com is also carrying the story saying police missed a chance to investigate Hinrichs.
