From Staff Reports
NORMAN -- An explosion near the University of Oklahoma's Gaylord Family-Memorial Stadium killed one person Saturday, OU officials said.

The explosion happened at the courtyard near the George Lynn Cross Hall, Botany-Microbiology Building on OU's campus, which is west of the stadium, according to Sgt. Gary Robinson of the University police department.

The explosion happened during the second quarter of Oklahoma's game against Kansas State.

After the explosion, police set up a perimeter of several blocks and made fans exit the stadium to the east.

Seems the Triangle Fraternity frat house had been asked by the dean of students to provide a "safe house" for Pakistani students until the 9-11 "stuff" blew over. Unfortunately, as most of you have found out, the Triangle Fraternity website is now taken down, except for the front page statement about Hinrichs. I couldn't follow whatever happened next and was too tired to try the Wayback Machine. Since Hinrichs didn't come to campus until 2002, I didn't think I would find much, but maybe someone wants to try the follow-up.

Nice work.

what time did that bomb go off Saturday? Anyone know exactly? Here is an interesting link to the Norman Mosque prayer times for the month of September (for what it's worth)

set out some Roach Motels.

Unfortunately, waiting for the other shoe to drop may result in someone having to scrape a number of pretty little Oklahoma girls off the fifty yard line.

A survey of articles in my file:

."shortly before 8PM"
."about 8 PM"
."around 8 PM"
."shortly after 7:30PM"
."about 7:30 PM"
."around 7:30 PM"

They were evenly divided between the 7:30s and 8s. Must have been 7:45PM! I guess nobody's clocks or watches stopped with the explosion!

from the first report from Oklahoma:

"Sgt. Gary Robinson of the OU Police Department confirmed there had been one fatality after an explosion that occurred about 7:20 p.m. during the second quarter of the OU-Kansas State football game."

UPDATE regarding info in post #3750

NEWS ARTICLE EDITED @ CFRA RE: REPORT OF 5 INJURED

I just got an email back from Steve Winogron the news editor at CFRA. He states original information was gathered by his "overnighter" from usaradio.com. He stated it is usual policy to source this information and in this case due to shift changes it was overlooked. I have no reason to believe from his email that he is trying to cover anything up - seems to be a nice guy as far as I can tell. (o:

I am unable to find any coverage on usaradio.com of this event. I have googled hoping for a cache page, but it seems it's not indexed, and there are no results for this source in Google NEWS. I will post more information about this later, but I wanted to make sure everyone knew I got a reply which I didn't expect! (o:

I will be writing up a rather large summary with links and such later tonight so that those coming in late can catch up quickly...

I've been doing a lot of it, but have lost some of the better engines for it, as they've all gone to "paid" and I won't/can't justify paying for them.

I really miss the commercial one, because it listed every single address on a street, no matter what is there, even with office numbers within office buildings. *sigh*

I have a pic of the new bench replacement and even made a tinyurl for it earlier today, but it's awfully large and I haven't taken the time to figure out the dimensions to size it down to.

Here's the link anyway:

I have been reading 8 o'clock but it was 7:20? I didn't pay any attention at the time when it happened -- probably should have.

Something else -- halftime show ended early by 7-8 minutes and the team came back on the field with four+ minutes left to go -- that is unusual in itself.

Game started at 6 p.m. First half seemed long and second half went fast from my recollection.

I haven't been following this thread for a while...

but I just turned on my local radio talk show...and the host said that he is got evidence that the suicide bomber WAS a jihadist...

I haven't read over the thread...I am going to listen to hear what he says...

Have you heard anything about this???

I have been hearing it along with the fact that the local media is not officially reporting because they cannot get their sources to go on the record. No one wants to be quoted. Scarey. Keep us posted!

Check out #4026! If this was a lone suicide, the FBI would have ended this investigation right away not taken over as the lead agency IMHO.

You have been one of the FEW who has been reporting: My opinion?

The bomber WAS a jihad's (-1 sp) - though not Muslim-born/bred. Perhaps not even Muslim himself, but "Converted" to such a hatred of Bush/right-wing causes (while at school) by his professors (hence the college president's immediate coverup and apparent foreknowledge of his mental state!) that he wanted to become a suicide bomber himself.

Out of hatred? Out of desire for attention? Fear?

Also: Likely that the bomber either chickened out (got depressed and DIDN'T enter the stadium)

or saw the inspection of handbags/backpacks and choose not to enter

or was talking to (supposed Muslims) seen running away before the explosion and mis-set the timer

Or goofed up and blew up early by slipping his hand away from a dead-man switch

or got sabotaged (by his fellow conspirators) and was blown up BEFORE he expected to blow up. One very effective tactic in Israeli anti-bomb efforts is simply making the bombers wait in lines for irregular times: and the half-time was late: when he could have walked/run into the middle of the stadium while the bands were moving equipment through gates normally locked.

I'm not suggesting that the FBI wait for one second. But it's more effective to keep this incident quiet while they investigate and set up traps to capture any co-conspirators.

Picked up this when I was on The Oklahoman website a few minutes ago:

Excerpts from the current story on The Oklahoman website:

Monday, investigators were seen questioning Hinrichs' neighbors who lived in Parkview Apartments on Sooner Drive, southeast of Lindsey Street and Stinson Avenue.

Norman police Sgt. George Mauldin, head of the department's bomb squad, said his team removed a "significant quantity of highly explosive material" from Apt. 506B.

The material, which he described only as "a solid," was detonated safely at the police firing range on Jenkins Avenue, south of State Highway 9.

Had the explosives detonated inside Hinrichs' apartment, Mauldin said, "damage would have been contained to that building. It may have blown out windows on buildings beyond that, but there would not have been structural damage."

FBI officials have refused to name Hinrichs' roommate.

Welch said he didn't know the roommate's name and had not seen him since early Sunday when residents were told to leave the building.

Ali Shakroun, who lives in an adjacent building, said he knew the roommate well enough to say hello to him but did not know his name.

Investigators at the scene identified Hinrichs from his wallet taken from his pants recovered at the scene.

Official identification will take more time, said Kevin Rowland, spokesman for the state medical examiner's office.

Identification will be made using DNA, Rowland said.

"There is no time frame on when the (official) identification will be made," Rowland said.

Investigators have refused to address whether the student may have intended to enter the football stadium.

Earlier in this thread or the other it was reported he attempted to enter the stadium but they wanted to search his backpack. I have heard the same thing. Looks like he had plans to drop the backpack and then take off to be detonated under the stadium where people are milling around. I am sure they have cameras around the stadium or at least I hope they do.

It has been odd the way they keep saying it might have been an accident which fits in with your theory.

Didn't want this to go away because I think it is very important that the truth come out whatever is the truth. The spin we got right away raised my suspicions as well as those of others and why the media along with other people have started digging. The Boren spin didn't work the first night and is still not working.
