    1996

    This is a thread I have been meaning to start for a while. What other news events happened in 1996? I was thinking we may get clues from other big news stories of the year (whether you are IDI or RDI).

    So far, this is what I have come up with:

    The Menendez brothers were convicted in their 2nd trial

    The Unabomber was arrested

    The Atlanta Olympic bombing

    The Khobar Towers bombing

    Tupac was shot and killed

    OJ Simpson civil trial began

    Any thoughts, anyone???

    Ebonics was recongnized in Oakland California as an official and separate language. I kinda considered this a crime, or at least and assalt on the English language.

    I believe Darlie Routier killed 2 of her 3 boys in June,'96,claiming an intruder did it.I don't recall in Dec. '96,where the case was at publicly by that point though.
    something to ponder:

    When the corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and the mortal have put on immortality, then shall we be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

    O death, where [is] thy sting? O grave, where [is] thy victory?

    The sting of death [is] sin; and the strength of sin [is] the law.
    But thanks [be] to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
    1 Corinthians 15:54-57

    JMO--You are correct. That was supposed to go on my list, but I completely forgot to put it down. Thank you for reminding me! That's an important one (in my opinion).

    Just wanted to add..the first bombing of the WTC was in 1993..just 3 yrs earlier.So I don't think it was way off base for the R's to have thrown in 'SFF' ..and when McVeigh bombed the OK building just a yr earlier,the first thought was foreign terrorism.

    Didn't also Lockheed have some training for it's employees about terrorism about the time JR worked there. IIRC this would be fresh in JR's mind about 1996.

    And I do think the OJ affair had some impact on this case. BPD was overly defensive IMO, maybe because they were scared to make mistakes like LE made in the OJ case. There could be other reasons for their actions of course...

    From this link: Lockheed Martin security officers found "no substance" in a theory that JonBenet's murder was related to Access Graphics' foreign business dealing as reportedly written in the ransom note, even though John Ramsey himself had appeared on CNN saying "I don't know if it was an attack on me, on my company...."

    Company can also be defined as a companion, or someone who is with you.
