    Two Norman men face felony charges after allegedly breaking into a tunnel under the University of Oklahoma campus to get into a building on the South Oval. Christopher Thomas Boyce, 24, and James Kent Eldridge, 20, were charged Thursday in Cleveland County District Court with conspiracy to commit burglary and second-degree burglary. According to an affidavit, a witness saw Boyce and Eldridge entering an underground tunnel system by cutting the locks to a manhole cover in the 1100 block of Asp Avenue. Police said the pair then opened a perimeter door and entered Richards Hall, where they removed a "stoppered...

    Additional bomb scares have increased safety measures by Scooby Axson October 19, 2005 After the Oct. 1 explosion outside Oklahoma Memorial Stadium and three additional bomb scares on or near university campuses in the following two weeks, OU officials are taking extra safety precautions. OU Department of Public Safety officials said officers will take additional security precautions at Saturday’s game against Baylor University, the first home game since Oct. 1. OU President David L. Boren sent a letter to season ticket holders explaining the stadium’s security measures. “Your safety while on the OU campus will always remain our top priority,”...

    If you're heading to OU's home game against Baylor Saturday, get ready for something new. The University will give an evacuation plan to fans heading through the gates. OU President David Boren mailed season ticket holders a letter that tells them to get to the game early, because searches will be going on at all stadium gates. This comes after 21-year-old Joel Hinrichs III killed himself with a home-made bomb outside the stadium on October 1. Investigators say the blast was an isolated incident.

    Not the terrorist you were looking for … move along Flash! The FBI did not find something. They didn’t. Now will you go away? This no-shinola news flash was brought to you on the Oct. 5 front page of The Oklahoman following revelations that a guy who was not a suicide bomber appears to have blown himself up on game day at the University of Oklahoma. The case is that of Joel Henry Hinrichs III, a youth described as a brilliant but apparently-you-better-believe-it troubled young man who took what officials described as a hydrogen peroxide bomb, strapped it to his...

    Media ignore importance of Muslim ties MICHELLE MALKIN Press accounts have downplayed the disruption of terrorist cells on American soil. Oct. 12 marked the fifth anniversary of the bombing of the USS Cole. Seventeen American sailors were killed in the attack. They were casualties of a war with radical Islamic terror that America hadn't yet declared and which the mainstream media still refuse to acknowledge today. Too many of us were blind in 2000 - unable or unwilling or simply too uninterested to connect such blood-stained dots as al-Qaida's 1993 World Trade Center bombing attack, the 1996 Khobar Tower bombings,...

    Sun October 16, 2005 OU student left suicide message By Nolan Clay The Oklahoman NORMAN - The University of Oklahoma student who died in an explosion Oct. 1 left a message on his computer that he was going to quit living, his father said. The FBI read the message to the father Friday, after he came to Oklahoma to clear out his son's university-owned apartment. Joel "Joe" Henry Hinrichs III, an engineering student, died when his bomb went off about 100 yards from the packed football stadium during the second quarter of OU's night game against Kansas State. Hinrichs, 21,...

    Mark Tapscott's appearance on CNN definitely raises some interesting points that relate directly on to how the Hinrichs investigation is proceeding and how various officials are portraying the situation. Which brings us to what may be a significant development coming out of the CNN segment. Pat DeMuro (SP?), the former FBI agent who was in the New York studio with Aaron Brown tonight, described an agreement when the FBI was reorganized a few years back that all explosions would be presumed to be terrorist acts until proven otherwise. But in this case the presumption virtually from the outset has been...

    ARLINGTON, Va. - The man with the video camera might take the subway, hoping that police who check passengers' bags won't notice that this particular piece of electronics actually is rigged with explosives. The second bomber might be lurking outside the nearest subway station, waiting for police and paramedics to respond to the underground disaster - and waiting for his chance to rush in and make it even worse. In the new age of the suicide bomber, hypothetical scenarios abound. When officials on Thursday disclosed a potential threat to the New York City transit system, possibly featuring baby strollers ready...

    Bad timing blamed for group's detainment By Randy Ellis and Judy Gibbs RobinsonThe Oklahoman NORMAN - A University of Oklahoma instructor from Egypt said he and others of foreign descent were handcuffed at gunpoint and questioned after the OU bomb blast Oct. 1, but added he is not bitter. "Not at all. I understand. They explained. But if they keep coming back -- that's something else," Hossam Barakat said. "Because I'm not guilty in any way." Barakat, 37, blames unfortunate timing. The roommate of the student killed by the explosion just happened to wander into an apartment where he...

    The Oklahoma Daily (OU) ^ | October 13, 2005 | OK Daily Editorial Staff
    OUR VIEW: 10/13 October 13, 2005 The FBI broke its silence Wednesday and announced, among other things, that a press conference summarizing their investigation is on the way. As of now, they are “more and more convinced” that Joel Hinrichs was acting alone when he blew himself up on the South Oval Oct. 1. They have found no connection between Hinrichs and any terrorist organization, and dispelled rumors that Jihadist materials were found in Hinrichs’ apartment. Still, we know that some people will put a lot of effort into contradicting the FBI’s analysis, facts be damned. But U.S. Rep. Tom...

Georgia Tech Police investigators took Hollot in for questioning early Tuesday morning, according to an Atlanta police spokeswoman. During the course of...

    Imagine a man with a bomb strapped to his body making his way into a packed football stadium, reaching his seat and blowing himself up. There would be a heavy death toll in what would be the first successful terrorist act on U.S. soil since 9-11. Jolting us back to memories of the Oklahoma City bombing, this would obviously be a massive headline in our ongoing war on terror. One would think attention would be heightened even further if such a story were to occur again in Oklahoma. Well, there's reason to believe it nearly happened, and it was indeed...

    en days have passed since a 21-year-old University of Oklahoma engineering student was killed when a bomb he was carrying exploded 100 yards from the stadium where Oklahoma and Kansas State were playing football before a crowd of 84,000 – and there are still more questions than answers to exactly What? and Why? As The Oklahoman said in its October 9 edition, the explosion “left Oklahomans wondering whether it was an individual suicide or if it was intended to be an act of terrorism targeting football fans October 1.” There is evidence the student, Joel Hinrichs III of Colorado, was...
