Killing Timothy McVeigh

Killing Timothy McVeigh

Bobby Wilson, J.D., uses his investigative skills to uncover the roles of both the FBI and al Qaeda in the bombing of the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City. In the middle of it all was Timothy McVeigh, who, caught in the resulting cats' cradle of terrorist plots and botched government involvement, paid the ultimate price.

Bobby Wilson explores the motives, the cover-ups, and the consequences of the bombing, and invites the reader to participate in his continuing investigation.

Bobby Wilson, J.D. is the author of the popular Bobby's Trials Chronicles: a true memoir of the deaths of his family – Bobby's Trials – and the memoir of a rough and tough trial lawyer – Renegade Barrister. Bobby is also the author of The John Q. Citizen Chronicles novels about Wall Street greed, State of Mind, and government overreach, State of Unrest.




The Army Buddies

     After his discharge from the Army, McVeigh, the obedient soldier, was always on the move, traveling around the United States, from one city’s gun show to the next. He was soon well known to the full-time gun show exhibitors whose lifestyle consisted of selling used firearms, ammo, military surplus and anti-government books and videos. McVeigh became accepted by the vendors, but remained a loner. He avoided any romantic liaisons and confined his after-hours social life to occasional strip club and bar visits with other gun shows exhibitors. He let his anti government feelings become well known.
     McVeigh dutifully made telephone contact with the Major weekly, giving him names and gossip concerning individuals with grudges against the government.
     McVeigh always seemed to have plenty of cash, more than could have been produced by his gun show booth selling used firearms, bumper stickers and anti government materials. It was assumed he was also a drug dealer.
     He grew restless and lonely after a year of his new lifestyle and received permission from the Major to make contact with his old army comrades, Terry Nichols and Michael Fortier.
     McVeigh traveled to Terry Nichols’ farm in rural Michigan and was greeted warmly by his old army platoon sergeant. He stayed for several days with the Nichols’ brothers. McVeigh was surprised by Nichols’ vocal anti-government fervor and invited him to join him on the gun show circuit.
     McVeigh and Nichols packed up Nichols’ wide assortment of firearms and his clothes and hit the road to Kingman, Arizona to reunite with their army buddy, Michael Fortier, and his live-in girlfriend, at their single wide mobile home in an isolated rural area near Kingman, a known hot-bed of the militia movement.
     McVeigh was surprised to learn that Fortier was the largest speed and meth dealer in the area. He soon became one of Fortier’s drug customers. The three men talked about their experiences in Iraq and their belief it was all a big lie. The United States was the aggressor and had no business killing innocent Iraqis who were just trying to survive life under a brutal dictator. They were united in their vocal distrust of the federal government.
     The three men traveled to Elohim City, Oklahoma and liked what they saw and heard from fellow patriots. They met Andy the Kraut, the security chief, and were impressed with his military and intelligence background. Nichols was especially impressed with Andy the Kraut’s knowledge of explosives and the two of them promised to stay in touch with each other.
