Joel Hinrichs' suicide by bomb is in a news squeeze. Bush picks a new justice; tour-boat tragedy in New York; DeLay is indicted. Compared to all that, Hinrichs is nothing.

But several someones in the federal government have an interest in what seems to be the first suicide-by-bomb on a U.S. college campus. According to the Oklahoma Daily:
Because of the nature of the incident, the OU Department of Public Safety turned the case over to the FBI at 5 a.m. Sunday so that it could investigate the circumstances surrounding Hinrichs’ death. The FBI then began searching Hinrichs’ apartment at Parkview Apartments, 606 Stinson Drive.

Hinrichs was sitting on a bench outside George Lynn Cross Hall during the second quarter of the football game Saturday night when the bomb detonated.

Around 7:30 p.m. Saturday night, there was a loud explosion outside Oklahoma Memorial Stadium that was heard as far as five miles away.
A big boom for someone intent on only taking himself down.
